5 ideas for a summer day in Skåne
Vacation is here and we’re getting ready to take time to rest, share moments with people we love, and enjoy swimming and sunbathing along the coastline.
One of the most appreciated areas in Sweden is the southernmost part of Skåne. Here are a few of our best places on where to eat, meet and shop.
The medieval city center of Lund is lovely for shopping in the many quaint and unique shops. Take time to also wander around the cobbled alleys and lovely parks. The open-air museum ”Kulturen” stretches over two blocks in central Lund, and is filled with cultural-historical houses and beautiful garden plantations. Step into the houses and experience what life here was all about from the Middle Age up until the 1930s. There are always many interesting exhibitions for both children and adults going on.

Alice & Katten, Lund
In Lund, the cafés are close. At Alice och Katten you must not be in a hurry. Here, ’fika’ takes time. In their cute salon from the 19th century, you can feel the wings of time, the smell of newly baked buns and tea blends from all over the world. Our tip is to order the Alice Afternoon Tea; tea of your choice served with scones, clotted cream, jam, and delicious pastries. How to accessorize? Tärendö Sea crest meadow!
Skissernas museum, Lund
The Museum of Artistic Process and Public art in Lund houses the world’s largest collection of sketches, models and originals of Swedish and international public art. You get to experience how the artistic creative process can take many interesting turns from the initial idea to a completed piece of art. Adjacent to the museum is the restaurant På Skissernas. With local farm products in season, food is cooked with ambition and love, highlighting Swedish flavours. Suobbat Upstream Dream is a perfect match.
Island of Ven
If you have time for an excursion, the mythical island of Ven, is a must. Situated in Öresund strait, half way between Skåne and Denmark, the small island offers a great adventure for the whole family. Off the ferry, peace of mind sets in. The easiest way to discover Ven’s history, craftsmen, cafés and magnificient nature is to rent a bike. Put on your Skaulo Natural leather + Unpolished silver and off you go.
You can’t visit Skåne without going to the beach. And the seaside town Falsterbo is just the right place. Here you will find long white sandy beaches and crystal clear water, perfect for bathing and water sports. A good idea is to combine the excursion with a visit to Falsterbo Photo Art Museum. Their bistro Perspektiv offers a first-class menu and a great wine selection. Wear a pair of Kallax Drop of resin and enjoy the moment!
