S:t Petri Church

This world-famous church is an architectural masterpiece that exudes simplicity. It was designed by Sigurd Lewerentz and consecrated in 1966. It is one of Sweden’s most accomplished churches in architectural terms. The entrance can be quite hard to find, but it was deliberately built that way, to represent the difficulty of finding the gateway to the kingdom of God. The font is made of a white mussel shell from the Indian Ocean, placed on a raised area that resembles a rock. All the details have been carefully planned and executed, and all symbolize an event or aspect of Christian faith. Guided tours on request.

Bike ride

Bring your bike, or rent one, and experience the Helsingborg region from the saddle. Ven Ven is the legendary island where astronomer Tycho Brahe’s spirit lives on and pink mallow sways in the ditch banks. You own the skies and the sea as you pedal along at a leisurely pace. The climate is so mild that durum wheat thrives here. Barley is also grown, and is used to produce the island’s very own whisky at Spirit of Hven Backafallsbyn. Head down to the quay at St Ibb’s Church at lunchtime and buy freshly smoked herrings.

Horse riding

Wherever you look in Skåne, you’re bound to see a horse. This is our favourite beast of all. There are many different breeds of horse, and plenty of places where you can ride. As well as the sheer joy of riding, getting up on horseback is a perfect way of coming into close contact with nature, and of covering lots of ground in a short time. Even if you’re a complete beginner, you can go riding through leafy beech forests or along the beach. Amiable Icelandic horses that jog along at a moderate pace are available at Spelmansgården in Ängelholm or Kullabergs Islandshästar. The scenery and rich wildlife of Söderåsen are best enjoyed from a western saddle on a good-natured Haflinger horse from Söderåsens Turridning. Westfield Hästsafari, between Båstad and Torekov, offers riding at Hovs Hallar, through apple groves and at full gallop. If you’d like to try riding an Ardennes horse, you can do so on Hven. Many of the tours welcome children and novices. All you need to bring is a pair of sturdy shoes. Horses and helmets are available for hire.
