Stories of

Båstad & Bjäre Peninsula

Classic destinations

We are all different, but there are certain sights that are classic destinations. It's the kind of place you take friends on long-distance visits, foreign guests and difficult-to-flirt in-laws. Places that are not too demanding or adventurous but always beautiful, well organized and that look good in pictures. You know that it will be good, simply, with these classic destinations.  

Norrviken's gardens
Norrviken is neat and well maintained. The best of Bjärehalvön's nature, but organized and beautifully presented. They have good opening hours and the gardens are appreciated by both pedants (well-trimmed hedges) and artistic souls (wild flower beds). There is also food and a cafe here, and it works well for all ages to spend several hours strolling around. Best, of course, when it's blooming and showing off, but also wonderful before Christmas when you have a light party. Redeem your entrance ticket here!

Hovs Hallar nature reserve
The best of nature when dramatic cliffs meet the sea. There is a large car park here and even the smallest walk on the dirt road offers fantastic views. With good shoes and a decent physique, you can hike down towards the water or up along the edge of the cliff. On Hotel & Restaurant Hovs Hallar at the car park there is good food, coffee and ice cream. Adequately adventurous but none the less captivating, in other words. 

Torekov and Halland's Väderö
Street houses, roses, cobblestones and the smell of seaweed. Torekov is a beloved summer idyll and a nice excursion destination at the far end of the Bjäre Peninsula. Here, it might be good to have a picnic at sunset by the rocks, or to eat at one of the several fantastic restaurants around the small harbor. Here the children run around the harbor and play or fish for crabs while the parents eat. It's hard not to enjoy it. Also take the opportunity to take the boat out to wild and beautiful Halland's Väderö if you have time for a day trip. Redeem your boat ticket here.

Birgit Nilsson Museum
A must for those who love opera, celebrities or just wondered who the person adorning our five hundred notes is. Birgit Nilsson is one of Bjärehalvön's great personalities, she grew up on a farm in the middle of Bjärehalvön and made her way through her singing to the world's great opera stages. At the Birgit Nilsson museum, you can join the journey from the crowd to the Metropolitan.
