Buildings & Cultural environments

Stop for a moment and think about how much history you are surrounded by at any given time. In Falkenberg, there are many well-preserved buildings and areas. They have survived all these years and ready to share their stories with anyone willing to listen.


Tullbron

Towering over the river Ätran stands Sweden’s most beautiful stone bridge, steadfastly regardless of the water levels and swirling currents. Take a stroll over Falkenberg’s most famous construction.

Falkenberg Castle

Today, Falkenberg is a calm and charming town, but that was not always the case. The town has experienced its share of wars, attacks and fires. The ruins of Falkenberg Castle stand today as evidence of the town’s dramatic history.

Hindströmsgården

The Hindström farm is the town’s oldest wooden house and has been preserved as a museum. The farmhouse was likely built in the 18th century and has survived all the fires that have ravaged Falkenberg since then.

Falkmanska Huset

This old 18th century inn still serves hearty food and freshly brewed coffee.

Gustaf Bratt

Countless Falkenbergers and visitors have amused themselves at the Gustaf Bratt entertainment palace through the years. But when the house was built in 1861, its function was actually to serve as a granary for grain that was intended for export abroad.

Sjöbergs Laxrökargård

Sjöbergs Laxrökargård was in operation for nearly a hundred years smoking fish and meat. If you get really close to the old wooden facades, you can still detect the smell in the walls.

Falkenbergs Varmbadhus

The old hot-bath house in Falkenberg is now a so-called culture school, but the beautiful exterior is the same as when the building was first constructed in the 1910s.

Laurentiiparken med Gåsatorget

In the middle of the old town lies a lovely green area with trees and plants. Take a break in Rosariet and enjoy the smells of the beautiful scented flowers.

Malt Oast in Åhs

At a height in Vessigebro with a strikingly beautiful view is a well-preserved malt oast. Perhaps you do not know what a malt oast is. That is not so strange as there are not many of them left in existence. In the old agricultural community, people made their own beer. That required malt. It was smoked and dried here in the malt oast.

Flak Tower at Askome

War planes and bomb attacks over Falkenberg seem like remote concerns today, but during the Second World War, the threat loomed. The Askome Flak Tower still scouts out over the area and reminds us of those worrisome time.

Watermill in Axtorna

This little house is where the farms in the area ground their flour. 200 years ago, it was necessary to carry out the entire process oneself, from cultivation and refining to storage and preparation. Bring your children along on a pleasant little excursion to this historic track.

Kärnebygd Mill and Saw

On the shore of beautiful Lake Tjärnesjön, there is a well preserved mill environment from the 18th century. The location is well worth a stop with its exhibition in the buildings and for a walk through its picturesque surroundings.

Larsagården

Experience a truly old war-built Halland farm that actually consists of two estates. The oldest parts date back to the 18th century. Welcome to the courtyard!

Nydala Mill

The mill is beautifully located over Högvadsån, this is a tributary to Åtran. The mill wheel has now stopped, but grain was milled here until as late as just a few years ago.
