    Across the border in Klippan council but only 6 kilometres from Röstånga, you will find Skäralid, which is the village with the main entrance to Söderåsen National Park and with loads of walks like up to Kopparhatten and down through the gorge below. See my Klippan page for more info.

    Volcano seen from hostel

    As the whole of Söderåsen is border country, with the European and Scandinavian plates meeting, there was once great volcanic activity here. Stand at Röstånga hostel and you will see Jällabjär in the distance, but of course it is nice to see it close up too and it is only 2 kilometres away. Today a nature reserve with great bird- and plantlife as the basalt rock is good for plants. At one place you even have a bit of a mini Giant's Causeway in the forest.

    Probably the most famous bit of the National Park in the Röstånga part of it, the lake is not even 2 kilometres walk away from the village centre. You walk through a side valley to the bigger Nackarpsdalen valley and through beech forest with sloes full of rocks and stones both ice age and human activity remains. As you see the lake, you are forgiven for thinking it is small, but the beauty of this lake is not its size, but instead the fact that it has no inlet - all the water is groundwater! It is throught to have been created just after the ice age when a glacier had been created in the shaded hollow and then finally melted. Legend of course says something else, hence its name - it is seen as the one-eyed Norse god Odin's eye and a giant hid in it to escape the noise of tolling church bells!

    You can swim here (although it is 20 metres deep in most places!) and there are tables and a barbecue place. Also a shelter with open fire! Once in August, they also have classical concerts on a jetty in the middle of the lake at night :-)

    Röstånga has one of those inns Skåne is so famous for. This one has hotel and konference facilities too so you can see it is successful, but you will usually mainly notice the nice country atmosphere even if it is no longer a coaching inn. There are two great restaurant halls to function as Röstånga's banqueting premises, and they are really classy and food expensive but don't let that scare you as you can also have a much cheaper meal in the former stable tack room which is now an a la carte with typical "inn dishes" like salmon and schnitzel (and including a not so inspiring but OK veggie dish of the week). If however, you feel like spending a bob or two in the more classy rooms with Röstånga's bigwig business people, the place is famous especially for its Christmas buffet (smörgåsbord) and for goose dinners, a Skåne speciality in November. They also do barbecue evenings Saturdays during summer. All with waiters who are picked out of the "old world" - discreet and quiet :-)

    Favorite Dish: Salmon with creamy dill potatoes.

Röstånga Transportation

    Stationshuset

    You can reach it by road from Svalöv, Klippan, Eslöv or Höör. If you haven't got your own transport, don't distress. Catch a train to either Klippan (from Helsingborg or Hässleholm) or Stehag (local "Pågatåg" from Malmö, Lund, Eslöv, Höör) and then bus 518 either southbound for Stehag (from Klippan) or northbound for Klippan (from Stehag).

    Pictured is the former station house from the days when Röstånga had a railway. This is now a restaurant with a culture twist - "KulTur & Retur", a pun, and looked very interesting - we would have visited it if we had stayed longer as there were flowers, street lights, pipe art and all sorts by the entrance and the food is reputedly interesting!
