Among rooftop terraces and cozy courtyards

Take a break from the hustle and bustle of the city’s streets and squares. Slip into a cozy, hidden courtyard or explore the hidden gems among Halmstad’s rooftop islands.

Roof terraces and sky bar

At the top of Hotel Mårtenson External link, opens in new window. is Greta’s tak, External link, opens in new window. a playful oasis inspired by garden parties in the apple orchards around Halmstad. The charming interior, like the rest of the hotel, is 1920s meets 2020s. Come to enjoy sparkling cocktails with floral touches combined with very good food while the sunset dances over the roof.

Cozy and unlike anything else

At Zigges Garage (swe) External link, opens in new window. you can enjoy tapas and pintxos cooked with love, and innovative cocktails stirred to perfection. Every Friday there’s an aperitivo, the Mediterranean equivalent of “Happy Hour” after work, with a well-stocked buffet. One not-so-secret recommendation is to end the night at Zigge’s rooftop bar with its laid-back vibe and great views of Nissan along with the genuine Spanish cuisine appetizers.

If you want to combine a baked treat with 400-year-old architecture, the half-timbered Brooktorpsgården (swe) External link, opens in new window. is a must. You’ll feel the wings of history already as you stoop and step through the low portal. In front of you opens the small picturesque courtyard where under the warming rays of the sun you can enjoy a lunch or homemade baked treat.
