To be perfectly blunt, I did not expect a whole lot from going to South Sweden. My initial assumption was that it was probably a lot like the places around the German Ostsee with some nice parts, and yeah sure, it can be beautiful, but unfortunately too often its beauty is ruined by city planning. Oh my, was I wrong. It is nothing like it. First of all, it’s a lot greener, the villages and cities are a lot prettier, and the beaches wilder. I came back a reformed Sweden-fan. And you know what the best thing is: getting there is super easy. You only need to get to Rostock, take the comfy ferry for 6 hours, and there you are!
I did it like many tourists do: get a camper van to explore the countryside of Skåne, Sweden’s southern province, from south to east coast, to the remote lakes of the north and the stunning cliffs of the west. Here’s my summary with all the nicest spots to check.
Disclaimer: I was invited by VisitSkåne, travel itinerary and thus all spots were chosen by myself.
