    Torup Castle

    by Sjalen Updated May 22, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Torup is a small village centred around a 16th century castle which is really nice and can be toured weekends in May and June (as it is still inhabited). You can also visit a fascinating museum dedicated to the castle farm labourers in their old dwellings nearby. Both are surrounded by a lovely beech forest much used by Malmö citizens in summer (see the sports tip). Read more on my Svedala page.

    A cheap bustrip to Torup

    The Torup Castle

    Every Sunday at 10 AM & 1 PM the city of Malmö has arranged bustrips to the little "village" called Torup. The bustrip costs only 10 SEK (ca 1 Euro) and is intended to bring the cityfolk out to the nature. 99% of the bus-passangers are elderly folks, but the youths seems to discover this fine opportunity more and more for each Sunday. If a bus gets full, they call for another one, so don´t worry about not getting a seat. The bus ONLY departures from the Södervärn busstation. You don´t have to worry about finding the right terminal on the station, because you´ll definetly see it from a distance because of all the elderly people queueing up.

    So what can you do in Torup then?
    Well, I´d say the best thing is the nature & the enormous woods. When I go there I mostly bring a small grill, go for a walk to find a cosy place in the forrest, and then have a BBQ-meal followed by a good nap.

    The bus arrives & departures from the Torup Castle. It´s a beatiful big castle with an even more beatiful huge garden. Many of the bus-riders choose to sit in this park and enjoy the weather & nature.
