  • Lund Cathedral

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Lund Things to Do

    Lund's Domkyrka (Cathedral) is one of the oldest and finest Romanesque churches in Sweden, and is a must see in Lund! The present building dates from the 12th century, the time when Lund played an important role in Denmark's history - for instance was King Valdemar II crowned here in 1202. The cathedral is located in the city centre, and is easy to...

    Lund Restaurants

    The interior was trendy, and we were surprised that the prices weren't exorbitant as we had expected. The food was definitely wirth the money! 385 kroner for 3 dishes and a glass of wine. (By Scandinavian standards, that's a reasonable price for a nice meal) NB: Don't go there for the nightclub, it's expensive and it has a bad atmosphere. The...

    As I was visiting Ystad as a result of seeing several Wallander films - Fridholfs was a must to visit. I had an enjoyable breakfast buffet - followed by a semlor (Shrove/Fat Tuesday fayre only).It was pleasant and all the customers seemed to be local - this was a first visit which took place in early February, so no tourists nor film crews.Since...

    Backafallsbyn is a conference centre and hotel (see tip) but also has Sweden's Best Beer- and Whisky bar 2005 and if this doesn't impress the whisky lover, I don't know what will. Not only Scots but all sorts of whisky lovers make pilgrimages to this place as they have unusual bottles left of whiskies not even made anymore. That's apart from the...

  • Lighthouse

    Ven Off The Beaten Path

    We saw a lighthouse as we left Copenhagen and I couldn't find it on the Denmark list. It turned out that it was on the island of Ven (or Hven) which is an island in the Oresund, roughly 2 miles long and a mile and a quarter wide, about 2.5 miles off the Swedish coast. Although this island was formerly a part of Denmark, it has been Swedish since...

    Simrishamn Restaurants

    Maritim is a small but very cozy restaurant that serves local food. It's a lot of fish courses as it is in Simrishamn, where they've always fished a lot. I always ask the staff about the daily special, they give you great advices.

    Simrishamn Things to Do

    Kivik is famous nationwide for its apple orchards so you will get a special experience if you come when they are in bloom in late May, or in late September during the harvest and apple market in the harbour. The apple house, next to the Kivik fruit drink factory in nearby Karakås, is like a museum on what you can make with apples, its history and...

Skanör med Falsterbo

  • A cozy inn with much charm

    Skanör med Falsterbo Restaurants

    The inn is very cozy with great ambiance in Skanör, the south of Sweden. I especailly like it in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy the beautiful swedish summer. Egg cake with pork and lingonberry is their speciality and is a must if you'd like to try a scanian specialty.

  • Foteviken Viking village

    Skanör med Falsterbo Things to Do

    Foteviken is a unique place in viking Scandinavia as it isn't a museum or heritage place (like Hedeby, Birka, Trelleborg or Borg) but rather a village where people live viking lives during summer and where you are given guided tours by the inhabitants and can then wander around people's houses as you wish, looking at the great hall, the king's...

  • Amber searching

    Skanör med Falsterbo Local Customs

    On the beaches at Falsterbo lighthouse, Skanör harbour and in Kämpinge, near the amber museum, you can find small pieces of amber if you are lucky but best if you are there after an autumn storm when it is washed ashore.

    Båstad Things to Do

    I will long count my visit to Torekov as one of the nicest days in my life. Sure, I had good company (the family) and gorgeous weather, but I must still put a lot of it down to the cosiness of this very special village. A former fishing village, it has grown since it is now a very popular summer destination for Stockholmers. This means house prices...

    Me and my husband recently visited Ängelholm - for its nature, its peacefulness, biking and canoeing down the river. This was the last stop on our Sweden roadtrip before heading to Denmark. Little did we know that we would find a thai restaurant of this amazing standard that would send us on a culinary experience! We came back two times during our...

    Dalby Things to Do

    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...

  • Quarry swimming

    Dalby Sports & Outdoors

    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...

I have never tried them myself but they do walks for private people as well as groups, as demand was high for expertise on Kullaberg. Lenght of the tours vary too. They also do speed...

  • Krapperup Castle

    Mölle Things to Do

    Playing with the name, even my photo of this castle came out crap, so you will have to trust me (or look at the link below) when I say that it is not the most dramatic Skåne castle visually, but still nice and worth a visit as it was once one of the biggest and most important ones in the region. Krapperup was built in the 13th century and both...

    Kivik Things to Do

    I would have put Rörum as off the beaten path, were it not for the fact that the road passes by just outside the village so it isn't that unknown. If you turn into the village itself, you will be met by a little place in a dip amongst the hils which gives a pretty setting. It also has some great Scanian houses to admire, including the old inn (now...

    Höör Things to Do

    The oaks in Bosjökloster's park is not as old as the grand oak but nevertheless impressive and very nice to stroll under to get away from the crowds. There is a cattle grid in this part of the castle grounds as the park is often grazed by social donkey mares and their foals.

    Trelleborg Things to Do

    Trelleborg was once one of the main settlements for the Danish vikings and that is why they built a so called trelleborg in the first place (compare it to the more famous one in Denmark). The fortress then gave the town its name. The wooden structure is quite impressive but it's a bit disappointing that nothing has been done beyond it, to show...

    Between the Swedish southern cities, Trelleborg and Ystad you will find Beddingstrand. This small town is mainly a road with some houses that one could pass in 5 minutes.

  • Not an easy place to get to

    Kåseberga Transportation

    If you have a car at your disposal as we did, getting to Ales Stennar from Ystad is easy and doesn't take long, just follow the signs. A bus trip from Ystad takes only 20 minutes, but the buses (#322) are few and far between. A good solution here is a bike, which you can rent at Ystad. The 20-km cycle track runs first in a pinewood, then along a...

    Kåseberga Things to Do

    Most probably an ancient Vikings' meeting place, Ales Stennar consists of 56 standing stones forming a 67- metre long shape, which from above looks like a boat. Its prow and stern are marked by two considerably larger monoliths. It is not known how these enormous stones found their way up the steep hill where they now stand but they certainly do...

  • How to find it

    Kåseberga Transportation

    Since it isn't the first place you will see on a Map of the World, I can tell you that you will have to approach it by road from either Simrishamn or Ystad in the very far south of Sweden. It is in the area called Österlen and therefore you may well find it if you go in search for places from the Inspector Wallander books.
