Hässleholm, centrally located in Skåne, is the natural starting point for your stay with its close proximity to all parts of the landscape and opportunities for adventure and experiences of various kinds. Here you can enjoy the good life - with peace and quiet just around the corner but still close to all the town's amenities.
It is easy to get to Hässleholm thanks to its location along the southern railway line. It has now been 150 years since the first train rolled into Hässleholm station. The railway created the conditions for the town to be developed and even today the railway is an important part of the town's future. So consider the environment and choose the train.

Hässleholmsgården, dating back from medieval times, just south of the centre, has given its name to the town, which at the time consisted of just a few houses on the heathland.
Today Hässleholm has become a creative venue in the middle of the Öresund region for bold initiatives in art, culture and nature. The inspiring architecture in Hässleholm Kulturhus (Hässleholm Culture Centre) provides space for music theatre in every possible genre. A large library, cinemas, tourist office, café and restaurant are also accommodated here.
Hässleholm offers all the amenities of a small town and a well-focussed shopping centre and a pleasant shopping arcade. Cosy cafés and terraces blend together in the pedestrian areas and square.

If you are interested in history there are many monuments here from the 17th century's Snapphane feuds when Göinge was site for the war between Sweden and Denmark. Hovdala Castle played an important role during this period with its location close to the border. Today the castle offers magnificent simplicity, silence and peaceful tranquillity. The castle is a national cultural heritage and has been awarded the Europa Nostra Award for its careful restoration. During the summer guided tours, exhibitions, concerts and much more are arranged. The park and garden are open all year round.
Children who visit our area are attracted to exciting stories among the pillared halls and bats in Tykarpsgrottan, play and adventure at Rikstornerspelen (The National jousting tournaement) in May or make a visit to Alpacka & Älg, an ecofarm in Hultet. Here you can get up really close to the Swedish elk and also socialise with animals on the farm. Or why not go on a trekking tour with an alpaca? Children who usually do not like to walk seem to forget the time when they walk with the calm animals.
Around Hässleholm there are a number of places with charming small centres and squares. Every place has its own characteristics with interesting history, including traditions in the timber industry, furniture manufacturing and health spas.
We are close to our neighbours in Copenhagen and the rest of the Öresund region. For those who are looking for the pulse of the city, you can reach the pulsating capital of Denmark in just 1 ½ hours.

Today you can reach the area by train again since the regional Pågatågen train service stops here.

Early in the last century Tyringe became known as a popular spa and tourist resort, where people went to relax and drink the restorative waters from the famous Radium Spring. The tradition of getting together to "drink from the well" is still kept alive to this day. The establishment of Tyringe sanatorium and baths as well as several other hotels, guesthouses and convalescenthomes accelerated the development of the village, as did the success of the local metalworking industry. Today the fully modernised Tyringe Kurhotell is the hub of social life in the village.
