Ängelholm is a small city, with about 22 500 inhabitants it is only the 7th largest city in Skåne. It is home to the super sportscar Koenigsegg. Rönne å is flowing through the city and it only takes a few minutes to walk from the town center to Björkskogen, a forest with many pines and birches. A long beach is situated between the forest and the sea. The word “angel” has nothing with angels to do; despite the fact there is an angel in its city weapon it comes from the ancient Swedish word “aengil” that meant “angle”. In 1516 the Danish King Kristian II gave city privilegies to the then new town Ängelholm.
