Trollhättan has a large urban centre. In terms of the number of inhabitants, the city centre comes in 21st. place in Sweden.
Plans for the coming years include efforts to attract more inhabitants to the centre by means of centrally located rented, co-operative and freehold homes. Along the river, the canal and the locks, more homes will be built. These will be very attractive because of their beautiful surroundings and their central location.
The municipality is also growing along the outskirts of the city centre, and in its rural parts. New residential areas, above all for freehold properties, are being created in several places.
Thanks to major efforts towards the improvement of the infrastructure, Trollhättan has very good road, railway and flight connections. Travelling to Gothenburg, for instance, takes no more than just over 30 minutes.
