ÄNGELHOLM – a small city in Skåne

Some month ago me and my friend had some business to do in Ängelholm in northwest Skåne (Scania) in Sweden, close to the border to Halland. My intention was not to go there and take pictures, but I couldn’t resist since I have never done that in Ängelholm before and I thought it might be worth putting them on the web.
It is a small city, with about 22 500 inhabitants it is only the 7th largest city in Skåne. It is home to the super sportscar Koenigsegg. Rönne å is flowing through the city and it only takes a few minutes to walk from the town center to Björkskogen, a forest with many pines and birches. A long beach is situated between the forest and the sea. The word “angel” has nothing with angels to do; despite the fact there is an angel in its city weapon it comes from the ancient Swedish word “aengil” that meant “angle”. In 1516 the Danish King Kristian II gave city privilegies to the then new town Ängelholm.

Population: 82 500
Tallest building: Höghuset and Ängelholms kyrka
Founded: 1516
Province: Skåne
Area: 12.65 km²
Year visited: 2011 and other years

Stortorget with Ängelholms kyrka. The main square of Ängelholm.


Storgatan, the sometimes busy pedestrian street of Ängelholm.

Ängelholms kyrka.

Tingshusgatan.


Tingstorget with Gamla Tingshuset (courthouse), now John Bauergymnasiet.



A circular midrise from 2000.

Fairly new highrises.



Rönne å, the creek flowing through the town.



The tallest highrise in Ängelholm, situated along Rönne å.

It has 11 floors, but with the design where they integrate the highrise into lower buildings, they have tried to make it look even lower then it actually is to satisfy the nimbys.


Pyttebron.

Another square in Ängelholm with old buildings.

A renaissance building at the square.

Stadshuset, the City Hall, some blocks from the center, is considered to be of architectural importance with its long postmodern, exterior that is designed to resemble a Roman theater.

The entrance to the City Hall.

After a short walk or drive you are in the beach district Havsbaden in northwest Ängelholm.



The beach in Havsbaden is about 6km long. The bay is called Skälderviken.

View towards the wealthy suburb called Skälderviken, just like the bay.

Thanks a lot! As a bonus I post a photo of Koenigsegg, the supersportscar that is manufactured in Ängelholm:

Nice little town, including a charming railway museum. Nice to see the town again.
