The small township of Ystad is often referred to as Sweden’s most southern city and is a perfect destination to start your Swedish adventure. Founded during the 13th century the town has rich historical roots, something that can really be seen in the older parts of the city.
In Ystad, and the surrounding Österlen area you can enjoy the characteristic scenery of southern Sweden with miles of rapeseed fields and white sand beaches. While in the area you can visit the famous craftsmanship area of Kåseberga, see the historical ship barrow “the Ale Stones” or enjoy a relaxing visit to the Ystad Saltsjöbad Spa and a tasty seafood dinner at their first class restaurant.
