Things to do in Skåne
Skåne has so much to see and do, and it is small enough to explore easily. Head to Österlen for rolling hills and sandy beaches, or to the north west for the cliffs of Kullaberg. Don't miss Malmö, Skåne's big city and the third biggest city in Sweden. Here are some highlights from Skåne

Skåne and Malmö beaches
Skåne is awash (forgive the pun) with beautiful sandy and clean beaches. For goodness sake, even the city of Malmö has its own beach at Ribersborg, just a 20-minute stroll from the city centre. 2 ½ kilometres long, this beach is perfect for kids as the water is shallow and the beach is lined with lots for them (and you) to do including; play areas, barbecue spots and beach cafés. Head to the Skåne and Malmö beaches
Castles & gardens
Southern Sweden is awash with near 300 castles and gardens from various historic eras ranging from the 12th to 19th centuries. Due to their general magnificence, it’s a hard choice, but if you are near Helsingborg, breathing in the blooming, lovely rhododendrons at the opulent renaissance style Sofiero castle and gardens, is a must. And if you are bound for Kristianstad, catch an art exhibition at lakeside Wanås Castle and park.
