Visit Nynäshamn

Welcome to Sweden and the small beautiful coastal town of Nynäshamn.

The modern history of Nynäshamn begins with the construction of the railway from Stockholm in the early 1900s. Alongside the industrial development that took place a hundred years ago, the population increased, as did the importance of the port.

Nynäshamn’s location was significant for both commerce and outdoor activities, and it also became known for its summer homes, seaside hotels, spas and sailing centres. In the 1912 Olympic Games, the sailing competitions were held in what is still one of Sweden’s best sailing waters, next to a beautiful promenade and the world’s longest outdoor gym.

Today you can visit and experience the modern town of Nynäshamn with a wide variety of restaurants, shops and activities.
