Learn More about Varberg

Varberg, a surfer's paradise and much more Varberg is a town in western Sweden and the capital of the municipality of the same name. It is located in Halland County, between Kungsbacka in the north and Falkenberg in the south. Varberg is a port city of 25,000 inhabitants, 77 km south of Gothenburg, and is one of the departure points for ferries to Denmark. But it is also a destination of choice for Swedish vacationers who come to enjoy the sea, and especially for its nudist beaches, famous throughout the country! It is clear that the place is ideal because nature is omnipresent in this region. You can observe birds, swim in the sea (even in winter, after a sauna in the thermal baths) and walk in this beautiful area. In terms of culture, Varberg's main attraction is its fortress, inherited from the time of Danish rule. The charming destination of Varberg, less than 40 km north of Falkenberg, is attractive all year round but is known as a surfing mecca in summer. With 2.5 km of sandy beach, it's easy to see why. When you arrive at the harbor area, you will immediately distinguish the imposing Varberg fortress whose oldest parts date back to the 13th century. Venture into the courtyard and you will find the entrance to the Halland Museum of Cultural History. This majestic bastion houses the extraordinary Bocksten man (Bockstensmannen). The preserved remains of this medieval gentleman, including his clothes and oak cane, were found in a swamp in the Varberg area in 1936. After enjoying all that Varberg has to offer, from invigorating outdoor activities to its fascinating history and culture, head to John's Place for an informal meal with a fire-roasted meat feast by the sea.
