Halmstad is a popular summer destination located on the Swedish west coast. It is situated halfway between two cosmopolitan areas: the Copenhagen-Malmö-Lund area and the Gothenburg area, making it a well-connected, yet a pleasantly calm place to live. Halmstad can be reached by a direct train connection from the Copenhagen Kastrup Airport, as well as other local airports (e.g., Gothenburg Landvetter Airport, Halmstad, and Helsingborg/Ängelholm airports).
