Ängelholm is a locality and the seat of Ängelholm Municipality in Skåne, Sweden with 39,612 inhabitants in 2010.HistoryThe old settlement Rynestad was mentioned around the year 1600.The city was founded in 1516 as Engelholm by King Christian II of Denmark, who moved the settlement from Luntertun on the coast because it was difficult to defend. As a founder, King Christian II personally identified the boundaries of the new city, granting the city a chater in 1516. At Luntertun there is only a church garden left today.The town remained small for centuries. Following the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658, Ängelholm, together with the rest of Skåne, was assigned by Denmark to Sweden. The town began to grow in the 19th century due to industrialization. It was also a garrison town until 1883 and had an airforce base between 1941 and 2009. The older spelling Engelholm was retained until 1912, when the city council decided to adopt a more modern spelling in line with the Swedish spelling reform of 1906. The high-performance car manufucturer Koenigsegg Automotive is based on the premises of the decommissioned F 10 Ängelholm airbase.ContemporaryTourism is an important industry to the city. It has a 6-kilometer long sandy beach right outside the town. The winds in Skälderviken bay make the beach a resort for sailors, wave surfers and wind surfers.
