    Lund Favorites

    The city center is worth a stop, here you can walk around in 'Lundagård', see Univeristy or 'Kulturen' which is a famous museum. IF you don't like that kind of stuff, just walk around the city center, Lund has a population of 100,000 so it is not very small!

  • Ferry from Denmark

    Helsingborg Favorites

    Approach Helsinborg by ferry from Denmark to get the best feel for the city straight away. From the deck of a ferry, you can make out the City Hall and then Kärnan fortress high on its hill and you can imagine the defense needs.

    Both student nations and student unions pride themselves on a varied and affordable choice of activities ? concerts, dances, dinners, etc. The city of Lund (and the municipality) also has a great deal to offer outside the sphere of students.

  • Seaside strolling

    Helsingborg Favorites

    From the pier between Dunkers and the Central station/Ferry terminal, you have a great view and several benches to rest on whilst overseeing all activity in the strait. You can also walk north from the Bo01 area if you fancy a stroll. Eventually, you get to the nice beach and swim house (which I hope won't disappear because of the building of a...

  • Internet & mail access

    Malmö Favorites

    The main city library is designed by Danish architect Henning Larsen and is one of the most spectacular modern buildings in the city. It is also a great place for checking your mail as it is free - all you need to do is book a slot with the librarians and then you have limited time but enough to keep in contact with people.

  • Hollyhocks

    Lund Favorites

    Lund is a quaint little university town. I went in July which is the time when all the students have left for home and vacation. The town was very quiet and a pleasure to walk through. Streets are gently curved and it is an easy walk through the different squares in town. I loved all the hollyhocks which people planted outside their doors and...

  • Seaside & canals

    Malmö Favorites

    What I think everyone who goes to Malmö should do is go to the seaside. Either the beach and jetties of famous Ribersborg (picture) or a walk in the shadow of the Öresund Bridge at Sibbarp further out. North of Sibbarp is Limhamn marina with its yachts and the yacht club restaurant if you fancy a sit down after your walk. If scenic walking is not...

    Malmö Favorites

    Möllevången (Often called just "Möllan") is a southern city-area in Malmö known for its foreign influences. Many streets on Möllevången gives you a feeling of beeing abroad with all the shops having their signs written in arabian or turkish. Originally Möllevången was a rather poor workingclass neighbourhood. Today Möllevången is still not yet...
