Embark on a tour of discovery in a beautiful coastal landscape. Morup lies just north of Falkenberg. You simply have to follow the coastline, although the more scenic route along the small roads takes you through open farmland and peaceful meadows. The local area has lots of scenic spots and attractions.
Popular spots in Morup
Morup is an area with fantastic swim spots and lots of charming, unique “landings” along the Kattegat strait beaches that stretch on for tens of kilometres. There are lots of flea markets to visit as well as shops selling local delicacies that are perfect for throwing on a barbecue by the beach. It has a strong cultural scene thanks to the many artists and artisans who have chosen to move here. A lot of them have rather informal opening hours, so you can either take your chances or give them a call before you decide to drop by.
Morup is also an excellent place for kite surfing, and many people also visit the area for the abundant bird life in Morups Tånge. There is also a comprehensive map called Popular spots in Morup and its vicinity. You can download it via the link above or pick up a physical copy at Falkenberg’s Tourist Information Office.
