Dalby Things to Do

  • Dalby Söderskog National Park

    Sweden's southernmost national park is only little, but to someone from further north, it is still exotic. It is mainly famous for its beech forest which is hardly a unique scenery in continental Europe, but quite rare in Scandinavia. You can stroll along the paths, beginning by this parking place with its pretty stone wall. Should you be a real...

  • Knivsåsen

    Knivsåsen ("Knife Ridge") is a wonderful ice age ridge made of thousands of little stones packed together. It is the southwesternmost part of the much bigger Romele Ridge and one of the most scenic places I know in Scania. You can approach it from the main Lund to Sjöbo road where you will first come across the Dalby quarry Lake along the road (see...

  • Dalby Church

    Dalby is the oldest stone church in all the Nordic countries and one of the loveliest churches I have seen in Sweden. Its official name is the Church of the Holy Cross and its history starts in 1060 when the Danish king Sven Estridsen gave Lund and Dalby their own bishoprics instead of belonging to Roskilde. Bishop Egino of Hildesheim in Germany...

  • Dalby Court Hall

    In the early days, Dalby people met to settle disputes and hold "Things" at Arendala in what is now the national park known as Dalby Söderskog. They then continued holding by the well where the famous medieval church was later built, but since the church was built above the well legal matters had to move, and court hearings were in fact held at the...

  • Bally Museum

    I have not been here yet as I have only recently found out about it but the Bally museum is a place full of jukeboxes and slot machines from bygone days owned by a slotmachine collector also dealing in spare parts and so on. It is open afternoons from May to September at weekends only, although if you are a whole group you can call the owner for a...

  • Dalby windmill

    Also known as Osberg Mill after one of its owners, this beautiful mill was built in 1854 and very famous in its heydays but had to close in 1949. Today you have to ask Lund City Council if you want to know more.

Dalby Restaurants

  • Coffe and chocolate

    What makes this place cosy is its friendly owners who will recommend all sorts of chocolate, tea or whatever you have come to buy. That, and the fact that you don't expect a place like this in little Dalby makes it a great place to visit for a coffee break or just a bit of praline purchasing for your further journey. The pralines are not homemade...

  • Scanian inn

    This is yet another of all the famous Scanian inns with a tradition, and the current inn has been in existance since 1874, although Dalby has had inn privileges since 1642 when it must have been very lively here given how Sweden and Denmark kept battling it out over Scania in the Lund countryside! I have not yet eaten here but such an establishment...

    Getting to and around Dalby is much easier by car but fear not if public transport is your only option as it is easy enough to reach by bus, particularly from Lund but also from Malmö and Sjöbo or even Ystad. Just have a look at the website below to check times. There is a plan to open the railway through Dalby again as it was closed in the 1970s, but finances are still unclear.

    Just one of those fascinating countryside shops with hardware things and outdoor clothes as well as hunting gear. Where else would it be but here? :)

Dalby Sports & Outdoors

  • Quarry swimming

    I guess it's not that often you get to swim in a disused quarry but here at Dalby Quarry by Knivsåsen you can do it at either end of the water-filled former quarry. There are lots of steep cliffs so be careful if you're bringing children, but if you do, you can skip the swimming and in early summer go looking for tadpoles in the little stream at...

  • Hiking

    Buy yourself a map and go hiking! If you get off the bus at Knivsåsen you will have the option of walking either downhill towards Torna Hällestad past Knivsåsen and wonderfully pleasant fields, or uphill towards the peak of the Romele Ridge. Good boots and water to drink.
