When strOmstad became Swedish in 1658 it was just a small fishing village, but by 1676 it had become a town, acting as a strategic counter to the Norwegian towns of Halden and Fredrikstad. In the mid-19th centuiy sea-bathing became the fashion and ever since, Stromstad, with its glorious island archipelago and many hours of sunshine, has been one of Sweden’s major holiday resorts.

After a fire in the 1870s Stromstad was rebuilt. Today it is a modern town and its proximity to Norway is evident from the number of Norwegian cars and boats.

The Stromstads Museum focuses on local history, while Friluftsmuseet Fiskartorpet is an open-air museum

featuring fishermen’s cottages and fishing tackle.

The harbour with bars and shops is in the centre of the town and boats from here serve the islands, including Kosteroarna. Seal safaris operate to waters around the Ursholmarna islands south of Sydkoster. The nature reserves on Rosso and Salto can be reached by car.
