In Halmstad, everything is near. Within the city, most people walk to wherever they want to go. Our cycle lanes get you around the entire municipality. Buses, cars and motorbikes are a good alternative when travelling further away from the city centre towards our salty beaches and dense, verdant forests.
For slightly longer journeys, city and regional buses are a perfect option. Buses can take you around local areas, out to the coast and even further into our dense forests. Most buses run via Halmstad Resecentrum next to the railway station. Many city buses also stop at Stora torg in the city’s heart. Find your bus via hallandstrafiken.se (swe).
