    On my Ven page you can see why this romantic "cyclists heaven" island between Sweden and Denmark is so special with its steep "backafalls" by the sea, fantastic local food and astronomical history.

    If you've studied the 20 crown notes, you will have seen author Selma Lagerlöf, one of Sweden's own Nobel prize winners, on them. Lagerlöf lived in Landskrona for several years, working as a teacher at this girls' school which now has a plaque on it as she started to write the very famous "Gösta Berlings saga" here.

    Landskrona being an old working class town because of the port and wharves, and also close to Denmark, it developed allotments for workers early on. The most impressive ones can be found in the park outside the citadel and there is even a museum in one of them.

    Landskrona is the only town in Sweden to still have trolley buses and in this case, they are a new investment. The system was built just a few years ago when the council took the chance to invest in this as the new station was built. Therefore, there are a couple of lines through town, passing the railway station where you can try it out. The rest of town travel is then by ordinary buses. Remember that your train ticket is valid to take you to town by bus too if bought by Skånetrafiken.

    Landskrona station still exist in the town centre, but no passenger trains stop there. Instead, a new station, looking like a British supermarket, has been built in a field in the middle of nowhere to accommodate the ever faster trains of the modern world. But it is easy enough to get to and from this station too. High speed X2000 trains no longer come past here as the Malmö-Gothenburg line is further inland to accommodate for commuters in a different way, but you still have slow trains to Gothenburg here and plenty of regional trains to Lund, Malmö and Copenhagen.

    Well...most people actually DO see it as the Ven ferries pass by it, but few people stop on this old defense system built when the Swedes had taken over, to defend the important port. Today, it is full of windmills.
