Activities in Genarp
I am planning on taking my family back to our historic roots (birthplace of my great grandfather) in Genarp. I am looking for activities in the area while looking up long lost cousins. Any ideas?
Re: Activities in Genarp
Genarp isn't the bigest place, but it's reasonably close to Malmö and Lund. If you canot find any hotel in Genarp I'd suggest trying here.
Do you know the names of your long lost cousins? If so try finding them on eniro.se. Klick on "Personer" (meaning persons) and type in their name in th namn field. That might give you their adress and phone numbers.
Re: Activities in Genarp
Genarp has quite a well-known Scanian inn (Scania is known for being Sweden's grain basket with a food culture). You also have Häckeberga Castle nearby where you can stroll in a nature reserve surrounding it.
Otherwise I really recommend a trip to the neighbouring village of Dalby which you can read about on my Dalby page. It was once more important than Lund and has one of the oldest churches in Scandinavia as well as a wonderful ridge with an old water-filled quarry and a trail along a juniper heathland.
