"Clay pigeon town" Ängelholm by Sjalen

Ängelholm Travel Guide: 23 reviews and 33 photos

Having passed Ängelholm several times by train between Gothenburg and the continent in my days, I didn't get to see it in detail until we finally cycled around the Bjäre peninsula north-west of Ängelholm and then took a train back to Malmö from here in 2005, but not until after a visit to its wonderful beach for a cooling dip after a very hot day on bikes. The beach is one of the most famous features of Ängelholm and kilometres long. Close to it is one of Ängelholm's other sights, the Rönne River, which has its estuary here, making it a bird site so important it is in the Ramsar list of European bird habitats. You can visit the estuary both by bike, by foot or by boat.

The town itself is a bit further inland these days, and famous for its production of clay pigeons due to the soil here. There is also good shopping and several good museums of national interest, making it a great family base for exploring northern Scania. Coming here again after that first cycle tour, to actually see the town itself, turned out to be a very good decision and I still haven't seen it all. A very underrated town in the south of Sweden it deserves many more visitors.
