The Granary of Sweden, the Food Kingdom and “the land flowing with milk and honey” – Skåne has many names in a culinary context. Here you’ll find hospitality, culinary art and an abundance of fine, locally grown ingredients. It’s no wonder Skåne has more than its fair share of award-winning restaurants and inns.
Skåne has many open gardens featuring a wealth of botanical beauty, garden festivals and outdoor concerts.
Sweden’s most southerly province is also a mecca for golfers. We have some of northern Europe’s most attractive coastal courses, inviting park courses and moor courses. In Skåne you can reach more than 70 golf courses within just over an hour. And, of course, you can book green fees and golf packages at www.visitskane.com/en
Skåne’s history is clearly visible, not least at our 200 castles and manors. Many of these castles welcome visitors, offering experiences for those with an interest in gardening, art, food and, of course, history. At some castles, such as Kronovall, Häckeberga and Bäckaskog, you can even stay overnight in an authentic castle setting.
Skåne is perfect for outdoor activities, with 1,000 kilometres of walking trails, an endless number of rural roads that are ideal for cycling, and large lakes and rivers for canoeing and fishing. Skåne has something for the whole family. We have child-friendly, white sandy beaches that stretch for miles.
