The CityLocated on the west coast of Sweden, Varberg is a town with some 35 000 inhabitants. Here the rocky coast of Bohuslän meets the open coast of Halland. Alongside the sandy beaches, you find some of Varbergs most central locations. Apelviken, known as one of Northern Europe’s best surfing location, is situated south of the city center.
AccommodationIn Varberg, you do not need to choose between staying in the town center or by the sea. Even if the hotels are centrally located, the sea is at a walking distance. Varberg is known as Sweden’s health resort, so many of the hotels also give you access to their own spa or swimming facilities. If you do not want to stay at a hotel, you can choose between hostels, B&B and camping sites with cabins, both in the town center and in the countryside.

The trend to eat local and organic products is strong in Varberg. Both restaurants and food shops focus strongly on this as well as on maintaining food of high quality. You might also be able to enjoy Halland specialties, such as horseradish, elder or curly kale.
It goes without saying that “having a cup of coffee” is typical for Sweden, and Varberg is no exception. Here you can find a great number of cafés, both by the sea and in the more crowded town center. During summer the cafés offer outdoor seating where you can enjoy your coffee in the sun. During autumn and winter, we suggest a long walk along the sea to make your coffee or tea especially enjoyable.
