On a Date in Scandinavia: Mölle's Harbor Cove

Here we continue to follow Katerina and Johan Alm on the road in coastal Sweden...


The drive up to Höganäs Municipality from Malmö is picturesque, provides a beautiful coast side tour and only takes about an hour. A few minutes north of Höganäs is the town of Mölle, a 19th century fishing village that is known for its scenic harbour and permiscous bathing at the end of the 19th century when men and women started swimming together. Perched upon the top of this village is the Grand Hotel Mölle where we happily perched ourselves for a few days. The view looking over the harbour is incredible and a sea view room comes highly recommended.


In the area you can visit Kullabergs Nature Reserve where you can do botanical walking, bird watching and mountain climbing. The area is also known for their ceramic especially the salt glazed Höganäs jars and pitchers. There are many potters and artists around selling thier crafts. A short drive away is also home to Sweden's Iittala Outlet where famous Finnish kitchenware and pottery can be found at discount prices.
