So what is Varberg's story? Well, the city was actually called Getakärr when it was created. The marsh Getakärr was located about a kilometer north of where Varberg's Square is located today. The only building that still exists and testifies to this time is Getakärr's church ruins, which can still be visited. Varberg's history stretches back to the Middle Ages, when Halland was still Danish. Around the 19th century Varberg became a popular spa town- and it still is today.
Varberg is awesome to visit all year round but is perhaps a little extra exotic during the summer when the magical beaches and beautiful bathhouses tower up along the coast however, it is just as beautiful and relaxing in winter. You can't leave Varberg without at least having considered a lovely spa experience at one of Varberg's cosy spa facilities.
If you get hungry in Varberg, there will be no need for you to starve, Varberg has several restaurants listed in the White Guide where Öströö sheep farm, John's Place and Majas by the sea are just a few examples.
Varberg is in other words the perfect destination all year round which offers everything from culture and history to restaurants and spa experiences
