Rent a car in Halmstad with Europcar

Halmstad is a port city located at the mouth of the Nissan river, on Sweden’s west coast. Until 1645, it was Danish and served as a fortified border to defend Denmark from the Swedes. Medieval monuments, golf courses, cubist art and beautiful beaches… Halmstad and its surroundings are great to hop around! Head first to Halmstad Slott, a castle built in the early 1600s by King Christian IV of Denmark, before exploring St Nikolai Kyrka, a beautiful 14th century church. Five kilometres west of Halmstad lies Mjellby Art Museum the Swedish temple of French cubism! There, you can contemplate daring creations produced by the six artists from the Halmstad Group. If you’re a golf enthusiast, Halmstad is the place to be! With its 183 holes over 12 courses, it is Sweden’s golfing capital! And while you’re here, don’t miss Tylösand a popular haven for windsurfing, kiteboarding and partying until dawn in summertime!

Discover Halmstad and the surrounding area by car

Are you ready to cruise along the scenic Swedish coastline with Europcar? Just to the west of Halmstad, near Tylösand, there are plenty of pretty spots to discover along the Bay of Laholm. Direct from Halmstad, the E20 will lead you to Varberg, about 72 km north where you can enjoy a day spa, surf or go birdwatching. Relax in the iconic wooden Kallbadhuset bathhouse, or explore the imposing Varberg's Fortress, a must-see in Halmstad!

The village of Mölle is located on the Kulla Peninsula, about 90 km down south Halmstad. This picturesque hideaway was a real hotspot in the 19th century that (scandalously!) encouraged mixed bathing at the beach and attracted care-free Berliners. Times have changed, but it is still very charming! Get in your car and within an hour, you’ll have embarked on an excursion along the coast-fish or enjoy any water sport you fancy! Explore the nearby beautiful fishing village of Arild, with its pastel houses and cute harbour, or visit the gorgeous Kullaberg Nature Reserve — a haven for biodiversity.
