I’m so excited to be sharing this Guide to Laholm with you!
Just a few weeks ago, I had the great opportunity to explore beautiful Laholm. It’s so close to where I live, so I had never considered going there for a vacation (or in this case, perhaps it’s more of a staycation because it’s only a 20 minute drive from where I live!).
I think we all need to reconsider how we spend our vacations, especially now but also in the future. I haven’t been very good at exploring Sweden, and even less so the area I live in. After this “trip”, which I took with my great friend Emelie, we have been back to several places in this guide to Laholm!
We’ve actually been look at houses in this area too, so I was a little extra excited to explore. I’m so happy to share all these places in my guide to Laholm with you, and I hope you enjoy this post as much as I enjoyed creating it 🙂 And who knows, maybe I’ll be living here soon?!
A Guide to Laholm
Gamleby translates to ‘old village’ and is the oldest part of Laholm with the church S:t Clemens dating back to 1225 (!). If you love taking a stroll through old neighbourhoods with quaint houses, this a must (also very close to Teckningsmuséet and Delihallen, which are further down in this guide).
The Museum of drawings – I cannot believe I’ve never been here before! I was blown away by how good it was. The exhibition when I visited was ‘Drawn to the line‘ by Petra Börner & Annelie Carlström. They open with a new exhibition on September 26. Can’t wait to go back to see that one too!

Located right next to Teckningsmuséet, we came here almost everyday for lunch, coffee and ice cream. They have a delicious burger with a local cheese called Nofva cheese which is similar to halloumi cheese but so much better and less squeaky! It’s from Skottorps dairy farm (located right next to the castle of Skottorp which you can see further down in this post).

One of the many beautiful beaches in Laholm, Skummeslövsstrand was the perfect place to enjoy the sunset after a long day of driving around. This bridge is new and you can’t really see here how long it is in this photo. If you’re into winter bathing this bridge will make things so much easier for you 😉
Ann-Tikt & Sånt
Definitely a favorite shop of mine, I could walk around here for hours! So many things to look at – antiques, plants and home decor in the most lovely setting. I think you can see why I love this place so much!

Translated into English, Majsboden means ‘The corn shed’. This place is so cute, and the corn is so good! Fresh corn on the cob is one of my favorite things to eat, with butter and salt. Needless to say, I ate corn for about a week after this visit. Definitely not complaining!

I was so excited when I saw this cozy shop located in Knäred, turns out, this is like two shops in one! There was one more shop hidden behind the first shop, full with antiques! Plants, vintage furniture, antiques… all my favorite things! I bought an old bread board here, the one you see in my previous post. Oh, and I got the old spoons there too!

Kvarnfallet and Fika from Conditori Cecil
We went to buy some fika at Conditori Cecil, which is a pastry shop with typical Swedish pastries, before heading to Kvarnfallet. I fell in love with Kvarnfallet and its’ surroundings! You can come here for a fika, for a hike in the forest, for a dip in the water or to simply admire the view. Either way, I highly recommend this beautiful place!

A pick-your-own farm where you can pick sunflowers in the field and tomatoes from greenhouses PACKED with huge tomato plants. I don’t think I’ve ever seen so many tomato plants in one place! I suspect it’s very popular because when we got there, they only had green tomatoes left. We need to get there earlier next time!

A newly opened farm shop with vegetables and flowers. I got a bunch of veggies from here, and the tomatoes were amazing, and they also grow sweet potato which is quite rare here. So nice to be able to buy locally grown sweet potatoes! I also got one of the pumpkins which is waiting to be cooked, or most likely baked with! During this season, you can bring your apples to them and they’ll turn them into apple juice!

How to get there: It’s not super easy to find but it’ll be worth it!
Start in Hasslöv and drive towards Vindrarp. Drive past Lugnarohögen, and continue on that road for a few minutes until you see a sign on your right saying ‘Rollstorp’. I think the sign is yellow and red and it looks like a private road but it isn’t. Take a right here and drive past some houses, up the hill through the forest.
After a little while, you’ll pass a house on your right that says ‘Sjömansvila’. The landscape will open up and right when the forest starts again there is an old road barrier (I have no idea if that’s what they’re called! ‘Vägbom’ in Swedish) on your right side. Stop here and walk into the forest. After about 50-100m the path will divide itself into two, take the left path and continue on this path. After about 500 m you’ll find the waterfall!
Absolutely stunning castle located on beautiful, open fields. Sadly, it is private owned these days so you can’t go inside anymore but there is a cheese shop right next to it, Skottorps mejeri (where you can get the yummy cheese I mentioned before, amongst other things) so it’s definitely worth a visit for the views and the cheese! We got there when the cheese shop was closed, but I’ll definitely go back soon!

Drömmar Inne & Ute
A lifestyle shop in theeee most beautiful setting in the countryside, in what I’m guessing was once a stable. You can find home decor, jewelry, clothing, plants, coffee, jams and other edible things in this lovely shop.

We found this shop by accident, when we were on our way home from Drömmar Inne & Ute. Absolutely lovely shop for all you plant and home decor needs!
