History[edit | edit source]

Säffle Municipality is a municipality in Värmland County in west central Sweden and its seat is located in the city of Säffle.
Säffle was the last local government unit in Sweden to get the title of a city, in 1951. In 1952 the system with different types of municipalities was made obsolete, but it formally existed until 1971. The present municipality was created in 1971, when the city merged with the surrounding rural municipalities.
The municipality covers a peninsula in Lake Vänern (Värmlandsnäs), and has a large fresh water archipelago.
