Vikings and water

Start your journey in Ystad and stroll among the 300-year-old half-timbered houses and visit Sweden's oldest monastery. Then continue on west and discover ancient Bronze Age burial mounds, the vibrant fishing spots Beddinge beach and Böste, historic dolmens and Sweden's southernmost point, Smygehuk. Finally, you arrive at the harbour town of Trelleborg and the ancient Viking fortress Trelleborgen, which with its museum and café is well worth a visit.
