The old settlement Rynestad was mentioned around the year 1600. The new city got its charter from king Christian II of Denmark in 1516. The town remained small for centuries. Following the Treaty of Roskilde in 1658, Ängelholm, together with the rest of Scania, 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 2002. The high-performance car manufacturer Koenigsegg Automotive is based on the premises of the decommissioned F 10 Ängelholm airbase.
