Ystad

Throughout the centuries, merch-ants and shipping folk have played an important role in our town’s development. The old half-timbe-red houses made of oak and hand-made bricks, and grand 19th cen-tury mansions tell their own tale. The town of Ystad and surrounding villages share the rolling countryside with stately homes, farms, galleries, artist’s studios, handicraft shops and cafés. Entertainment on a grander scale includes opera, theatre, fairs and festivals. The 40 kilometres of south facing sandy beaches beckon; feel the sand between your toes and the sea breeze ruffle your hair, brea-the deep and enjoy. Gaze across the sea from Backåkra, Hammars Backar hills or the mighty Ales Stenar. Whatever way you look the views are inspiring. Communications here are excellent – a thriving port with many daily connections to the Danish island of Bornholm and Poland, a frequent train service that will whisk you to Copenhagen and Malmö, in about one hour! The people of Ystad love both culture and nature, and we have a passion for sport. That’s why there is such a variety of activities on offer in the area. If you are an art lover, Ystad Art Gallery is one of Sweden’s largest regional museums. If you feel the need to stretch your legs and get back to nature, you can take advantage of Swe-den’s “right to roam” law. This gives you the right to walk al-most anywhere you want (with certain exceptions) and to enjoy our wonderful countryside and forests. If you still have time on your hands, there is the theatre, the Cineteket film museum and the film studios Ther are historic hou-ses to visit, games of handball to watch, rounds of golf to play. Learn to make lace, take in a concert, go fishing, hang-glide, go shopping, or just sit on the beach.

There is so much to do here in Ystad, the-re hardly seems time to do it all. You will find a wide range of accommodation in Ystad. Prices and standards vary widely, so the-re should be something to suit all tastes and budgets. Food and beverages that are peculiar to Ystad include smoked Ystad sausage, fresh beer – it is traditionally made in a half timbered house in the centre of town, and the cheese from Marsvinsholm Herrgård. Our restaurants are our ambassadors for dishes from Skåne. The culinary experien-ces reflect new thinking and tradition. Most restaurants use locally produced ingredients – the natural link from the land to the table.
