Åhus is a well-preserved medieval town where you can find the remains of churches, palaces, city walls and a monastery ruin. With its fine harbour promenade and everything from charming cafés to reputable restaurants, it makes for a great day out. Here you can also visit the factory that makes the famous Absolut Vodka and take a guided tour of their visitor centre.
In the Iron Age and Viking Age, Åhus was an important trading town. During the 20th century it became known for its eel fishing. At the smokehouse you can buy smoked eel and if you want to participate in a real eel guild, there is no better place than Åhus Gästis in September. But book your table well in advance.
Don't miss a visit to Åhus' beautiful sandy beach. Bring towels and swimwear and spend the day on the fine white sand. The shallow water and ice cream sellers make it very child-friendly. Outside the bathing season, you can take the most beautiful walks along the water.
Åhus winery offers guided tours through the vineyard, which ends with a wine tasting from their own grapes.
