City guide – Härnösand

You can see the sea everywhere

Härnösand is the gateway to the High Coast! In the residence and diocesan city, you can stand in the middle of the old city center and still have water, verdant parks and dramatic nature within close reach.

Villa Sedin Bed & Breakfast, Franzéngatan 10
The old domprostgården is now a small family accommodation with personal rooms. Quiet location in the well-preserved old wooden district of Östanbäcken and next door to the cathedral. Close to everything.

Östanbäcken Bed & Breakfast, Östanbäcksgatan 14
Small, family-run B&B on idyllic Östanbäcken. Very quiet location, but still central with walking distance to the center, parks and water. Kitchen in all rooms.

Classic motor hotel on one level next to the E4 at the northern entrance to Härnösand. Interior in 50s and 60s style.

You can’t live more centrally than this in Härnösand. Good hotel with breakfast, wifi and parking.

Nattvikens Vandrarhem, Midtown
Nice beds, fridge and TV in the room. Good breakfast.

Härnösands Folkhögskola’s hostel, Murbergsvägen 32

Blå Porten, E4, Älandsbro
Well-stocked antique and flea market with many fine and odd items. Always very good glass and china.

Guldsmed Kalling, Trädgårdsgatan 6
Unique jewelry in gold, silver, palladium and titanium, made by the store’s own goldsmiths. Here you can find the Ångermanland jewelry, the Härnösand jewelry, the Härnösand cross… Or would you rather have a beaver or a surströmming around your neck?!

The shop, Västernorrlands Museum
Small shop, but good selection! Crafts, art, books and souvenirs from all over Ångermanland. Everything from textiles and forging to homemade candles.

Sandlund/Hossain, Fiskaregatan 4A
Exclusive bag manufacturer Sandlund/Hossain manufactures and sells bags that are sustainable in every way – environmentally, socially and design-wise. The company sells all over the world but has its showroom in Härnösand open every weekday during the summer.

Linboa, Trädgårdsgatan 3
Personal shop that asserts itself against the chains with women’s clothes in linen and cotton. Separate shop section with women’s underwear.

Re:store Höga Kusten, Köpmangatan 4
Newly started recycling mall and experimental marketplace near the square that has become a hit! Sustainability in focus. Wide range of goods.


Engströms Food & Deli, Storgatan 29
Tasty deli on the pedestrian street in the center of town. Super fresh both on the premises and on the plate. Great place to bunker down before a spontaneous picnic in the park or by the water! The hanger above all others.

APA, Trädgårdsgatan 3
A well-executed burger concept is combined with a rich selection of beers and a good bar in an absolute prime location by the square. Nice outdoor seating in summer and often live music.

Restaurant Skeppet, Skeppsbron 4
Skeppet is a really good choice in summer with its great location in the center right next to the water. A coffee or lunch with a perfect view of boats and people’s life? or a whole dinner? Or nice bar hanging? Everything is here.

Bitten’s Rockbar, Storgatan 32 A
Rock bar with big hugs feeling. Robust food on the theme of burgers and pizza. Plus the longest beer list in town.

Sam’s på kaje, Skeppsbron 21
A lovely, glazed Italian restaurant right next to the sea. Here you are literally sitting on the edge of the quay.

Clock, Järnvägsgatan 7
The world’s only state-owned hamburger chain has been resurrected under private management. Reborn Clocks until further notice only restaurant is in Härnösand. Dream on with a Big Dream with a slice of pineapple again!

Härnö Outdoor Lodge, Vårdkasberget
With passion for nature and traditional craftsmanship, a dining experience is created where the meeting is as big a part of the experience as the food and drink. The view over the town and large parts of the municipality is magnificent.

See & do

Härnösand’s car museum
Sweden’s largest car museum is growing to a breaking point. Just over 220 cars plus motorcycles, motorbikes, mopeds, engines, prams, a giant steam locomotive and much more. Frustrating car party and ambitious time travel in one and the same package.

Hemsö Fortress, Hemsön
A mammoth installation from the days of the Cold War, embedded in the mountain on Hemsön about an hour from Härnösand. A powerful journey through time under the guidance of knowledgeable guides. Lots to see and also a restaurant with a great view.

Adventure golf, Magasinsgatan, Kronholmen
A brand new adventure golf with courses in the center and right next to the water is underway. First results are expected in July.

Hiking trail that is easy to follow with the help of good signage.

Smitingen’s sea bath
Six kilometers from the center is what many (even outside Härnösand) call Norrland’s best sandy beach. Fine-grained sand and round. Serving and kiosk during the summer months.

Västernorrlands Museum, Murberget
Museum building with elaborate permanent exhibitions and an idyllic open-air museum that comes alive in summer.

Padel, Högslätten and Härnoverken
The sport of padel has exploded in Härnösand and now there are two newly built indoor halls and two outdoor courts.
