About us

A wonderful guest house, that combines a perfect location, and a beautiful, historic city.

Kviström Gästgiveri was built in 1664 and was replaced in 1686 by a new building. The pass at Kvistrum and the bridge over the Örekilsälven have played an important role throughout history as several battles were fought there. In 1788 marched Danish-Norwegian troops down through Bohuslän towards Gothenburg. At Kvistrum, the so-called Theater War was fought as it was more of a spectacle. In 2019, a complete renovation was done to create a homely atmosphere, where old meets new.

Today, Kviströms Gästgiveri has been renovated and offers both rooms and apartments for short-term and long-term rental, a pub-like seminar room, a small shop and a cafe.

Come and enjoy nature – fishing, swimming, hiking, canoeing, tennis, golf, or rent my boat or bikes, all connected to a modern Munkedal. Come and experience part of Swedish history.
