Life on Tjörn feels secure and inspiring, an island of opportunity.
There is accommodation available no matter where you find yourself in life, from houses to rental flats and owner-occupier flats. Tjörn municipality exercises active community planning in dialogue with the inhabitants. The basic principles and values the island stands for, also known as Cultural planning, are in the forefront when the new structure plan for Tjörn was developed.
Community service is close at hand on Tjörn. There are two local healthcare centres, pharmacies, banks and some of the most well-reputed provisions stores on the coast.
The children and young people living on Tjörn attend its many nurseries, schools, and upper-secondary schools close by. Billströmska Folkhögskolan, which was founded in 1876, receives students from all over the world. Several adult education associations are active in the municipality. The music societies are an excellent complement to the municipal school of culture.
There are several old-people's homes on Tjörn, a number of which are either new or recently renovated. They are all of a high standard and accommodate the needs and requests of the occupants. We also have modern accommodation to cater for the needs of disabled people.
Bus connections to the south via Stenungsund to Kungälv and Göteborg run every hour from, for example, the square in Skärhamn. The Tjörn bridge road link connects Tjörn to the mainland since 1960. Traffic can be heavy over these bridges during the summer months.
