About Angelholm



Ängelholm is a locality and the seat of Ängelholm Municipality in Skane County, Sweden with 23,240 inhabitants in 2010.It is known for its clay cuckoos — a special kind of ocarina. This is however a dying tradition as there is now only one producer of clay cuckoos, Sofia Nilsson.

Tourism is an important industry to the city. Its most valued resource in this respect is a popular 6-kilometer long sandy beach right outside the town. The winds in Skälderviken bay make the beach an attractive resort for sailors, wave surfers and wind surfers.

Here is also an ice cream manufacturer, Engelholms Glass which produces about 1.2 million litres of ice-cream every year.

A special sight of Ängelholm is the UFO-Memorial Ängelholm
