About Båstad

Playing host to the Swedish Open tennis tournament, Båstad is a coastal town overlooking the sheltered bay of Laholmsbukten. Once forming part of Denmark, it was conquered by the Swedes in 1658 and flourished as a commercial and handicraft hub, with traditional wooden clogs among the town’s most famous products.

Things to do in Båstad

In the heart of Båstad is the 15th-century Saint Mary’s Church, which was constructed in a Romanesque style and is topped by a brick tower. It is decorated with Gothic murals depicting the martyrdom of Saint Erasmus and the emblems of the Evangelists, as well as a wooden Madonna holding baby Jesus. Outside the church is a statue honouring the celebrated Swedish soprano Märta Birgit Nilsson.

A short drive from Båstad is the Norrviken Gardens, which was founded by horticulturist Carl Abelin as an experimental family garden. It has since been selected as the most beautiful park in Sweden, with meticulously clipped hedges, a koi-filled pond and resident peacocks among its attractions. Admire the artwork on display in the ornate Villa Abelin and feast on sweet treats from the on-site chocolatier.
