History[edit | edit source]

Trollhättan Municipality is a municipality in Västra Götaland County in western Sweden and its seat is located in the city of Trollhättan.
The municipality was created gradually in 1967, 1971 and 1974 during the last local government reform when the City of Trollhättan which was instituted in 1916, was united with surrounding municipalities. The municipality itself prefers to use the denomination Trollhättans stad for the entire territory, including rural areas.
