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.
Skåne is well known for its food and drink. The lamb, venison, goose and shellfish are wonderful here and you can enjoy them in the restaurants, bistros, bars and cafés in Malmö, the only large city in the south.
