Travel Tips for Eslöv
Stockamöllan to the north of Eslöv is a pretty little village worth a detour if you're driving. If not, the way to get here is by bus from Stehag between Eslöv and Höör and reached by commuter trains (see website in the travel tip). It is known for its old watermill with some old cottages around it and I just love the lush atmosphere here, where you are getting closer to Söderåsen with its national park further north. A walk up to the Stenbock Monument on its hill will show you what I mean. General Stenbock crossed the Rönne River here on his way to the Battle at Helsingborg in 1710. The village has an Industrial museum (call for the irregular opening hours to avoid disappointment) where you can see deck chairs like those made for Titanic, and what has been produced at the mill throughout times - mostly other wooden things. Stockamöllan also has a June jazz festival and a canoe centre (second link).
On the main railway line between Malmö and Stockholm you will find Eslöv, but only the InterCity train stop here on its way to the capital, nothing else but regional trains, and Eslöv has in fact been voted Sweden's most boring town. I have to say I fully agree with this if you stick to the town centre where there is hardly anything to do. Having said that, there are a few outstanding things if you are interested in architecture. Eslöv is also a town with a countryside full of castles so you might well find yourself skirting the town on a cycle holiday or on your way to look at horses. Your only other reason to visit would be as a business traveller. Despite its quiet appearance, Eslöv is known for being the home of a couple of well known Swedish food brands, today under the umbrella of the Procordia company. Everything from brine to jam can come from Eslöv and it all comes from the fact that the area had cheap land and therefore was made a railway junction. This of course made local farmers gather here to sell their produce and food production became a hit.
