Things to do in Helsingborg - Including where to stay

The historic seaside city of Helsingborg is home to just over 100,000 people, and sits along Sweden’s south-west coastline about 45 minutes north of my home, Malmö. Despite it’s close proximity, until recently, I hadn’t spent much time in Helsingborg. So when the local Helsingborg tourism board reached out to invite me for a weekend visit, I was so excited to learn more all the things to do in Helsingborg (hint: it’s a lot!).

A bit of a fun fact: Helsingborg was actually the first place that I ever visited in Sweden. When I first came to visit Sebastian here in 2017, he was living and working in the city at the time. It was the middle of December, which meant it was very cold and dark, and I never really had the chance to experience the city.

Now, after spending three full days exploring Helsingborg, I can confirm that this walkable city is full of charm and fun things to do. Here are some of my favourites!

Here's 10 things to do in Helsingborg to have the perfect weekend getaway in Sweden

1. Climb the steps up to Kärnan watchtower

Sitting high a top the city of Helsingborg, this watchtower is one of the most popular places to visit in Helsingborg. It dates back 700 years to when Helsingborg still belonged to Denmark and is perhaps the most famous symbol of the city. From the 35-metre high tower, you can enjoy the most beautiful views of the city, waterfront – and even Helsingør, Denmark in the distance. You can also learn more about the city’s history during the Middle Ages.

2. Step back in time at Sofiero Palace and Gardens

Located on the outskirts of Helsingborg, Sofiero Palace is perhaps the most famous place in Helsingborg – and I’d argue the most beautiful, too. Sofiero Palace was built in the mid-1800s as a summer house for the Swedish royal family, and other nobility across Europe. 

The castle is beautiful, but the main attraction of Sofiero Palace is the gardens, which has actually been named Europe’s most beautiful garden. The 15-hectare waterfront property is filled with beautiful gardens, a ravine, and northern Europe’s largest collection of rhododendron. In fact, the garden features over 10,000 rhododendron shrubs and over 450 species collected from all over the world, which bloom throughout May and June.

Princess Margareta’s perfectly curated flowerbeds are another highlight of Sofiero Palace. I’d recommend taking a tour of the property to learn more about the history of the palace and gardens.

And if you have time, the castle restaurant is a can’t miss. We had a wonderful seafood lunch here overlooking the sea.

3. Explore the city by bike

My favourite way to explore a new city is always by bike. And luckily, Helsingborg is very bike-friendly. Both the city and countryside are mapped with bike trails, so you can rent a bike and take it to the countryside locations in this itinerary, like Sofiero Palace or Wallåkra.

If you’re planning on spending several hours biking like we did, I really recommend renting an electric bike – speaking from experience, the countryside wind is no joke. You can rent a variety of bikes from the Helsingborg Travelshop.

4. Go beer tasting at a local brewery: Barski

If you’re looking for the best beer in Helsingborg, I’ve got you covered. Barski brews their own assortment of beers, affectionately called ‘Brewski,’ and offers beer tastings at their location in central Helsingborg. In addition to their own beers, they often feature beers from other breweries, which is served alongside huge bowls of ramen soup.

Sebastian opted for an assortment of lagers which he said were fantastic, while I tasted four different sour beers with unique flavours including hints of mango and coconut. We collectively tried eight different beers and weren’t disappointed by a single one … which, I mean, says a lot.

Book a table at Barski here.

5. Take a pottery class at Wallåkra Stenkärlsfabrik

A highlight of my time in Helsingborg and an absolute must visit is Wallåkra Stenkärlsfabrik for a pottery tour and class. During your visit to Wallåkra, you’ll take a tour around the facility and learn how the famous stoneware has been made since the 1800s. The process is completely unique to the region, and involves burning goods made of unique centuries-old clay at 1300 degrees Celsius.

If you opt to take a class, you’ll learn the ins-and-outs of pottery local pottery making, and why it is so important to preserve this local tradition.

6. Eat famous tomato pie at Miss Alice Krog & Delikatesser

Miss Alice Krog & Delikatesser is a countryside cafe and restaurant that has become very famous for a specific dish: Tomato pie. Many people have tried to recreate the secret recipe with little success, so it is absolutely worth the trip here to experience it for yourself.

After lunch, make sure you head across the street to Tomatens Hus (Tomato House), where Miss Alice sources their tomatoes from. Here you can shop for a large assortment of tomatoes, plants, peppers, baked goods, and other delicacies.

7. Take a walk along the water at Groningen (+ go swimming if you dare!)

The Helsingborg waterfront is really beautiful, especially in the warmer months. If you’re looking for the perfect seaside walking path, head over to Groningen. Here you’ll find the best spot to watch the Helsingborg sunset, or go for a swim – which you’re bound to see brave locals doing all months of the year.

8. Enjoy a seaside dinner with a view at Sillen & Makrillen

If you’re looking to eat at one of the best restaurants in Helsingborg, you must book a table at Sillen & Makrillen. It is located along the water with the most beautiful views – you really can’t get much closer to the sea than this!

Helsingborg is quite famous for seafood, and this restaurant in the best place to enjoy fresh fish. The quality is exceptional, using local ingredients to craft well thought-out dishes.

In the warmer months, you can sit out on the terrace with a view of the sea. But, even if the weather is a bit chilly, the views from inside are spectacular with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Book at table at Sillen & Makrillen here.

9. Chocolate-tasting at an award-winning chocolatier: Chocolatte

Chocolatte is an award-winning chocolatier in Helsingborg, having been awarded several medals in the International Chocolate Awards. It is a great place to enjoy a Helsingborg fika, or you can take some chocolates home as a souvenir.

There are so many options to try ranging from chocolate bars, to pralines and fudge. I can personally really recommend salt kola + lakrits (salted caramel and licorice), kolacreme + brynt smor (caramel cream + burnt butter), and virgin mojito.

10. Take the Helsingborg to Helsingør ferry to visit the famous Hamlet castle in Denmark

If you’re spending a bit more time in the city and are looking for a day trip from Helsingborg, take the Helsingborg to Helsingør ferry to Denmark for the afternoon. Here you can visit the famous Kronborg Castle, which inspired Shakespeare’s Hamlet. While in Helsingør, you should also try Danish open face sandwiches, called Smørrebrød. You’ll find plenty of cozy cafes serving these open rye bread sandwiches, which the Danes traditionally pair with a beer and a shot of aquavit.

The Helsingborg to Helsingør ferry is a fun experience in itself. Because the cost of alcohol is significantly cheaper in Denmark compared to Sweden, it is common to see local Swedes riding the ferry to purchase beer on the Danish side of the border. In fact, once the ferry crosses the Swedish-Danish border, a bell goes off and Swedes flock over to the Duty Free Shop to make their purchases. It’s a fun cultural experience!

Where to stay: The best Helsingborg hotel

The Elite Hotel Mollberg is located centrally at Stortorget in Helsingborg, inside a beautifully preserved historic building that dates back to the 14th Century. The hotel itself has been newly renovated, with modern rooms and all the amenities you could need.

Österlen

Tucked away in the southeast corner of Skåne, in southern Sweden, Österlen is a little Swedish paradise that embodies absolutely everything I love about living in southern Sweden. A popular summer haven for city dwellers, Österlen is a place where creatives and artists live and congregate. It is a region full of century-old cottages, antique shops, art galleries, incredible restaurants and farm hotels, hiking trails, quaint fishing villages, and the most beautiful Swedish beaches.

When I first visited Österlen I fell in so in love. I was completely wrapped up in the charm of it all – I understood the hype. What amazes me is that this little Swedish paradise remains largely off the radar of international tourists. But then again, I can totally understand why Swedes want to keep this spot all to themselves.

Ready to have the absolute best time in Österlen? Here’s everything you need to know!

Talldungen Gårdshotell in Österlen

Where to Stay: Österlen Hotels

There are so many fantastic hotels to stay at in Österlen, ranging from spa resorts to cozy farm hotels, and everything in between. I would just love to hotel-hop around the region because there are so many hotels I’m interested in staying at. But, here’s three of my favourites that I have been to so far:

Talldungen: I have written about this special hotel in other blog posts. In fact, I have a whole blog post dedicated to this Brösarps backar hotel here. This spot is really, really special. It’s eclectic and fun. The owners are such wonderful hosts. And they serve some of the best food and wine I’ve had in all of Sweden. Talldungen is located in Brösarps backar, a beautiful region of rolling hills in northern Österlen. This is a great hotel to base yourself at if you’re exploring north Österlen.

Talldungen Gårdshotell in Österlen

Örum 119: This hotel is all about aesthetic and it is seriously beautiful. The rooms are comfortable, and the common areas feature floor-to-ceiling windows looking out over the farm fields. Onsite they have a pizza restaurant, homemade ice cream shop, and farm shop. If you’re in southern Österlen, you must spend a night or two at Örum 119.

Ystad Saltsjöbad: If you’re looking for an Österlen spa, Ystad Saltsjöbad is located on the southwest coast of Österlen and offers a premium spa experience. 

Things to Do in Österlen

Nordic Sea Winery: Wine may not be the first thing you think of when you think of Sweden, but there have been plenty of wineries popping up around southern Sweden in recent years. Nordic Sea Winery is a great spot to learn about local wine, and to do a tasting. 

Brösarps Backar: The hilly region of Brösarps backar is one of my very favourite places to hike in Sweden. The rolling hills are reminiscent of Tuscany, offering some of the best hiking views in all of Sweden. To read my tips for visiting Brösarps backar, check out my Skåne hiking guide.

Brösarps backar

Knäbäckshusen: This beautiful beach has trees that follow the coastline and hang over the water, and is absolutely beautiful. It is also common to see surfers at this beach, as the water can get a bit rough.

Sandhammaren beach: This is my favourite beach in all of Sweden. The long white sand beach will make you feel like you have been transported to the Caribbean, and the sand dunes that line the coastline are dramatic. Read about my other favourite Swedish beaches here.

Simrishamn: The artsy village of Simrishamn is a place where creatives meet. You’ll find art shops, live music, and charming cobblestone streets lined with historic homes. Make sure you head down to the seafront, where you’re likely to see locals fishing.

Kiviks Musteri: Kiviks Musteri is well-known across Sweden as the leader in all things apples. They own a large orchard in Österlen, and produce products made from their own apples, berries, and other plants. You can visit the Musteributiken, a farm shop where they sell all their goods, take a tour of the facilities, or attend a cider tasting. While you’re in the area, head into the fisherman’s town of Kivik too.

Ales Stenar: This is Sweden’s version own version of Stonehenge. Ales stenar is an oval-shaped ring of large boulders that sits high above sea level, and is believed to be over 5000 years old. The story of the stones is unclear; some have predicted to be a Viking ship, and others a sun dial. It is an absolute must-visit.

Kåseberga: A charming little fishing village located along Sweden’s southernmost scenic coastline, locals flock here to buy freshly caught fish (most famously at Kåseberga Fisk). Here you’ll find red-sided fisherman’s huts and a really beautiful coastline. I’d recommend walking east from the town along the coast for some really beautiful views.

Kåseberga

Österlenkryddor: Tucked away in the Österlen countryside is this little farm shop selling homemade spices, herbs and more. In June/July, they grow their own lavender and sell many lavender products – including their award-winning lavender ice cream.

Österlenkryddor

Stenshuvud National Park: This coastal national park is a great stop for an easy hike along the eastern coastline. Read more about Stenshuvud here.

When in doubt, just drive. Some of my favourite places in Österlen have been the spots I have stumbled upon. The region is littered with flea markets and antique shops (keep an eye out for signs that say ‘loppis‘) and art galleries. There is so much to be discovered!

The Best Österlen Restaurants: Where You Must Eat!

I have said it 1000 times, but I will say it again, because the local culinary scene here is truly world-class. Copenhagen paved the way over a decade ago when world-famous Noma was named the “best restaurant in the world” for it’s take on new Nordic dining. Using primarily locally-sourced ingredients and curating a menu based on what’s in-season is no easy feat, especially in the Nordics where the growing conditions aren’t exactly optimal year-round. But there is something about this experimental yet simplistic dining culture that has everyone buzzing – myself included.

New Nordic dining has expanded across the Baltic sea to southern Sweden, where many restaurants have adapted the concept, and made it their own. In Österlen, you can find some of the very best restaurants in all of Sweden. Here are some of my favourites.

Pastafabriken in Ingelstorp Österlen

Talldungen: I already mentioned this as a place to stay, but it is also one of the best places in Österlen for dinner. The use local ingredients from Österlen to curate a seasonal menu that changes regularly. They also have one of the best wine selections I have come across in Skåne. Make sure you book a table!

Pastafabriken: Homemade pasta in middle-of-nowhere Österlen? After moving to Sweden from a Canadian city with a huge Italian population, I have been really critical of Swedish Italian food. It’s just generally not very good. But this spot changed my mind. Located in Ingelstorp, a small village in south Österlen, you’ll find impeccable handmade pasta, wine, and authentic desserts like tiramisu. 

Hörte Brygga: Serving up food from local farmers and growers in the area, Hörte Brygga is “inspired by their surroundings.” The menu is simple, and leans of the flavours of premium produce. This seasonal restaurant is wildly popular, and people have known to cue down the street in their car to visit this drop-in-only spot. But trust me, the wait is worth it.

Örum 119: I also recommended Örum 119 as a play to stay, but this is also an amazing place to eat. Onsite, you’ll find a pizza restaurant serving up wood-fire-based sourdough pizza, a homemade ice cream shop, and on Sundays, a 7-course “långfrukost” (long breakfast). I can really recommend all of it.

Kronovalls Vinslott: Kronovalls is a beautiful castle located in the middle of nowhere. But it is also a really great spot to grab pizza! If you’re roaming around northern Österlen and are looking for lunch, you can sit on the terrace and enjoy pizza with a view of the castle.

Bella på Österlen: Using influences from Italian cuisine, this is another spot that changed my mind about Italian food in Sweden. Like many chefs in the region, the owner moved down from Stockholm for a quieter life in Österlen. And the food here is really amazing.

Madame Blå Creperie: If you’re looking for a quick lunch, this is a great spot for French-inspired crepes. Located in a historical home with ceilings so low that Sebastian had to bend down, they serve sweet and savoury crepes suitable for every palette.

The Best Österlen Fika Spots + Cafes

If you’re roaming around Österlen, stopping at one of Österlen’s best cafes for fika is an absolute must. And thankfully, there is no shortage of cafes for a coffee and sweet. But here are some of my favourites.

Olof Viktors: No fika list would be complete without this spot – it is an Österlen institution and has received countless awards as one of the best bakeries in Sweden. They use all-natural ingredients and bake using a wood-burning stove oven, and in the summertime, you can sit outside and have your fika on their terrace overlooking the surrounding farms.

Backagården: Here you can have your fika in a beautiful greenhouse. They also have a really charming shop filled with home goods and art.

Österlenchoklad: Österlen’s very own little chocolate factory. The chocolate shop and cafe is located in an old school in Skåne-Tranås and they curate incredible chocolates. You can sit in the cafe and have a fika, and purchase chocolate to-go at factory prices.

Kiviks Musteri: The cafe at this famous apple orchard serves all kinds of delicious apple-flavoured baked goods (and other things, too). You can also try many of Kiviks other popular products, like ciders and jams.

When to Visit Österlen

Despite being largely unknown outside of Sweden, Österlen draws huge crowds in the summer months. It isn’t unusual to see people cuing in their cars to get a parking spot at a trendy cafe, or waiting outside ahead of their favourite antique shop opening.

I can confirm that summer in Österlen is pure magic, but that isn’t the only time to visit. Österlen is just as beautiful in the shoulder season, in the spring or autumn. And there will be significantly less crowds, making it easier to make reservations at the many of the spots I talked about in this post.

If you’re looking to visit Österlen in the winter, keep in mind that many local businesses close in the winter months. Most local businesses open for the season around Easter weekend and stay open during the autumn. Just make sure you check the opening hours at your must-visit attractions and restaurants before booking the trip.

One of my very favourite things about southern Sweden is all the nature. If you’ve been following me for awhile, you’ll know that there is no shortage of beautiful nature in Skåne – the southernmost part of Sweden that I call home. Sweden is a big county (surface area-wise), but is home to only 1 million people. This means, it is largely uninhabited – and there is tons of space to roam. Throughout the empty diverse landscapes of southern Sweden, the Skåne region has mapped trails for locals to get out and enjoy nature. In fact, there is over 1300 kilometres of hiking trails all over the Skåne region, called the Skåneleden trail.

Now, 1300 kilometeres is a lot of hiking … and it’s safe to say I still have a long way to go to explore all of it. However, I have spent a lot of time on various segments of the Skåneleden trail, and I’m here to share with you a few of my favourite segments of the trail.

My top Skåneleden trail hikes feature everything from rolling hills, forests, unique coastlines – and, my favourite, lots of cute farm animals.

A quick tip for locating the Skåneleden trail markers: Keep an eye out for orange! All Skåneleden trails are marked with orange markers with a photo of a hiker, and the word "Skåneleden."
1. Glumslövs backar (Glumslövs hills)
Glumslövs backar - best Skåneleden hikes
Difficulty level: Easy

Located just outside the town of Glumslöv along the coastline, you’ll find Glumslövs backar (the area can also be called Hilleshögs dalar). True to its name, it is a region of hills, valleys, and a rocky cliff-lined coastline. The landscape is very similar to the popular tourist island of Ven, which you can see across the distance in the sea. However, it is much more accessible since you can easily get there by train or car.

The hike starts through the valleys of Glumslöv, where you’ll walk through cow pastures surrounded by rolling hills. Once you hit the coastline, you can turn left or right and follow the trails along the water. Here you can see the cascading cliffs, abandoned WWII bunkers, and – my favourite part – the very unique coastline.

What is so unique about the coastline? It’s full of multi-coloured rocks (and bricks)!

Historically, there used to be several brick factories along the coastline between Helsingborg and Landskrona. Many colourful bricks still lay along the coastline, and the residue has changed the colours of the rocks as well to hues or red, orange, and yellow. You can read more about the history here.

How to get to Glumslövs backar

If you have a car, enter “Glumslöv” into your GPS as your destination. Once you have arrived in the small town, head just outside of town, south down Glumslövsvägen. Keep an eye out for the orange trail markers and parking alongside the road. Once you park your car, you can start following the trail markers toward the sea.

If you are travelling to Glumslöv by train, get off at Glumslövs train station and walk south down Glumslövsvägen until you hit the trail head.

Best time of year to visit Glumslövs backar

This hike is worth doing any time of the year, because the unique coastline is beautiful in any season. I’ve been in both the autumn and winter.

2. Brösarps backar (The hills of Brosarp)
Difficulty level: Easy

If you’ve read some of my other Skåne posts, you’ll know how much I love the Brösarps backer area. This region of Skåne, located just outside the town of Brösarp, is very reminiscent of the rolling hills of Tuscany. The hiking trails in this region will take you through pastures and forests, up-and-down hills, and even along some abandoned train tracks. 

How to get to Brösarps backar

To do my favourite hike of the region, you’ll actually want to follow two hiking trails: Skåneleden and Backaleden.

You’ll start on the Backaleden trail through Brösarps southern hills. Here you’ll be able to hike to the top of the hills for the very best views. To get here, park in the town of Brösarp and head past Talldungen gårdshotell to the trail head. You’ll want to keep an eye out for yellow markers.

Follow the yellow Backaleden trail markers until you reach the train tracks. From there, you will turn left and walk about five minutes along the abandoned tracks until you see the orange Skåneleden trail markers. You’ll then follow the orange trail markers through the forest trails back to Brösarp.

The best season to visit Brösarps backar

I have been here in both summer and autumn, and the autumn was an easy favourite for me. The colours in this region around late October and early November are stunning. If you’re visiting this area, I can also really recommend spending a night at Talldungens gårdshotell (which just so happens to be my favourite hotel in Sweden – read a blog post about that experience here).

3. Söderåsens nationalpark
Difficulty level: Easy

Söderåsens nationalpark is a very popular hiking spot in Skåne, so it has been a bit more commercialized. The trails are likely to be busier than some of my other recommendations, but it is popular for a reason and worth checking out for the beautiful views. The national park is home to dense forests, lakes, and an incredible lookout point over a deep valley of trees. It has been affectionately called “Skåne’s Grand Canyon.”

Which Söderåsens nationalpark hike is the best?

The park has mapped out many trails, so you might be wondering which one you should choose. I haven’t hiked all the trails, so if you want details on all of them, you should check out this link. The most popular Söderåsens nationalpark hike is to Kopparhatten, which is home to the canyon-like views. This is guaranteed to be the busiest trails.

I can also really recommend the Härnsnäsrundan loop, which brings you to beautiful lakes and through dense forests. In the autumn it is a canopy of red, orange and yellow, and you will rarely encounter other hikers around this area.

How to get to Söderåsens nationalpark?

Since this is such a popular spot. Skåneleden has mapped out in detail everything you need to know about getting to this national park. Read it here.

Best time of year to visit Söderåsens nationalpark?

Easily the best time to visit is in the autumn, although it is beautiful all year round. If you plan to go in the busy summer or autumn months, go early. The parking lot has been know to get full (especially on weekends) by late morning.

4. Romeleåsen Ridge
Romeleåsen Ridge - the best Skåneleden trail hikes
Difficulty level: Medium

Romeleåsen Ridge is a hike located about 20-30 minutes from Malmö, near Dålby. It is most known for it’s beautiful lookouts over the surrounding hills, but the trails are very diverse taking you through pastures, forests, and up-and-down hills.

I have rated this one as medium, because there are a lot of steep, rocky inclines. As a result, make sure you bring some good shoes. We also noticed many hikers bringing along full picnics to cook food at the fire pits in the area, so this could also be a really cozy option for a break.

How to get to Romeleåsen Ridge

Skåneleden shares a 12 km route, but this 12 km hike would be quite difficult. If you’re looking for a shorter 6 km hike, you can instead put “The Lodge Resort” as a starting point, park your car there, and follow the trail markers from the hotel. From here you’ll still be able to experience the best views from the highest points in the region.

Best time of year to visit Romeleåsen Ridge

I may be a bit biased, but this is a fantastic winter hike. Temperatures rarely dip below 0 degrees Celsius in southern Sweden, but if they do, you must visit Romeleklint. The trees were covered in ice and it looked like a winter wonderland. My best advice is to go early, because as the day progressed the ice began to melt. And also make sure to have a waterproof jacket on, too. That being said, I imagine it would be beautiful here in the summer.

5. Kullabergs naturreservat (Kullaberg Nature Reserve)
Kullabergs naturreservat - the best Skåneleden trail hikes
Difficulty level: Easy-Medium

Kullaberg is another one of the most popular hiking spots in Skåne – and it’s easy to see why. It’s beautiful! Located in the Höganås municipality, Kullaberg is a nature reserve that protrudes out of the western coast of Skåne. The region is full of cutesy villages and beautiful coastlines, which I found to be very reminiscent of the California coast.

The rocky cliffs that line the coastline lead down to grottos and caves that you can explore. But be careful when heading down to these caves, some of the pathways are very steep and slippery. Most people head out to the tip of the peninsula, but I recommend stopping at Josefinelust along the way. This particular grotto was an easy favourite for me.

For a really great hike, park at Josefinelust and explore the grotto, and then head west toward the tip of the peninsula. Once at the tip, make sure you hike along the southern coast for the most beautiful views.

How to get to Kullaberg

Kullaberg is a popular spot, so if you’re arriving by car, I’d recommend getting there early. There are a few parking lots in the region. The most popular spot to park is “Parkingplatz Kullaberg,” which is near the tip of the nature reserve. However, if you want to hike the loop I described above, you can park at “Josfineslust Rastplats.”

Best time of year to visit Romeleåsen Ridge

Kullaberg is a really popular summer spot for swimming and hiking. I haven’t been in the summer, but I can imagine it would be absolutely beautiful to swim there. However, I have also hear that it is very busy in the summer months. I have only visited in the off-season, and it is so quiet and serene. When we visited on a sunny day in March, we had entire popular spots to ourselves. So really, it is always beautiful and depends what you’re looking for.

Kullabergs naturreservat

6. Måkläppen naturreservat (Måkläppen wildlife sanctuary)
Difficulty level: Easy-Medium

Looking for a unique hike in Skåne? Måkläppen is a great choice!

The Falsterbo peninsula off the southern coast of Skåne is home to Måkläppen nature reserve, and the wildlife that calls the nature reserve home. Here visitors are able to hike out to the tip of the peninsula to watch the harbour seals, grey seals, and diverse species of migratory birds in their natural habitat. It is truly a can’t-miss experience.

I have rated this as easy-medium difficulty, because the coastline is comprised of loose sand, which is a bit difficult to walk on. Additionally, even on mild or sunny days, it can get very cold as you hike out on the peninsula. For this reason, make sure you dress very warm, and wear sturdy waterproof shoes. I’d recommend bringing along water and a hot beverage, and a snack too.

The hike is about one hour each way.

Which months is Måkläppen open for visitors?

Måkläppen is only opened for 12 weeks every year in the winter months, between November and January. Otherwise, there are barriers put up at the opening to the peninsula to protect the wildlife. 

How to get to Måkläppen

As you can imagine, this unique experience does get quite busy in the winter months. If you are arriving by car, your destination should be “Falsterbo Golfklubb.” I would recommend arriving early in the morning as parking fills up quickly. 

Alternatively, you can take the the Bus 100 from Malmö Central Station to Falsterbo.

Skåneleden shares more about visiting Måkläppen here.

The best restaurants in Malmö

The most common question I get about the Malmö food scene is easily: What even is Swedish food? And truthfully, before moving here, I had no clue what it was either … aside from meatballs, I guess.

While I’ve been living here in Malmö, and consumed a lot of delicious Swedish farm-to-table fare, I can say that Scandinavian food isn’t the only thing Malmö does well. Everyone talks about the world-class culinary scene in Copenhagen. But what many people don’t realize is that you don’t have to cross the Øresund Bridge to have an exceptional food experience. 

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll know a lot of my local content centres around me eating my way through this city. Dare I say my favourite thing about Malmö is the food culture?

After spending so much time exploring the food scene in this city, I’m excited to share with you all my favourite hotspots and hidden gems. So here it is, everything you need to know about to where to eat in Malmö Sweden in 2021.

Kärleksgatan 3: Tucked away in Davidshall, this tiny little brunch spot offers great food, coffee, and the most adorable interior [I mean, just look at this pastel tiled floor!].

JordThis spot offers my favourite vegan brunch in Malmo! With a cosy cafe setting and brunch options that range from toasts to oatmeal, and more!

Atrium: Atrium is the perfect cafe to grab brunch, and is absolutely one of my favourite brunches in the city. The ambiance is perfection, and I am obsessed with their very affordable breakfast platters, filled with everything from a yogurt parfait, to cheese and fresh bread (and don’t forget the bottomless coffee!).

Nam Do: Okay – so this isn’t really traditional brunch. Served on Saturday and Sunday from 11-4, Nam Do offers a Vietnamese “brunch,” which includes a full buffet spread of alllll your Vietnamese favourites, coffee, tea, and oter assorted drinks.

Cafe Grannen: Looking for vegan brunch in Malmö? This breakfast buffet is served everyday in the cutest little cafe. The spread includes an assortment of homemade pies, breads, and other treats. And the best part? At only 79 SEK on weekdays, it is surely the most affordable brunch you’ll find in the city.

Laziza: If you love Lebanese food, this spot is a treat. Laziza offers a Lebanese brunch in Malmo and it is one of my favourites.

the best lunch in malmö

Saltimporten Canteen: If you’re looking for a premium lunch experience in Malmo, this is in my opinion the best lunch in Malmo. Everyday they make only one daily lunch option (plus a vegetarian option for the week) using seasonal, local ingredients. It is fantastic!

SMAK: The name of this Malmo Konsthall translates directly to “taste” and they offer a really great dagens lunch (“lunch of the day”). They make premium food, and you can take your own salad, bread, dessert, and coffee from the buffets.

Noir Kaffekultur: This place is so much more than just coffee. The avocado toast paired with a kaffe latte is my go-to, preferably outside on their perfect little Parisien-inspired patio.

Malmö Saluhall: The local “salluhall” or “food hall” offers a variety of restaurants in a cool indoor market setting, and is a great spot to grab lunch if you’re exploring the city. Plus, their diverse food offerings mean that there is guaranteed to be something for everyone. [must try: raman at Pink Head Noodle Bar].

AB Småland: This lifestyle concept store not only carries the most beautiful home goods, but it also offers a great vegan buffet lunch and coffee shop.

Far i Hatten: Located in the middle of one of Malmö’s coolest parks, Folkets Park, this is the perfect spot to grab a patio beer and pizza.

Spoonery: Offering a variety of different different bowls, with a rotating seasonal menu, Spoonery is a great lunch spot. If you’re in the mood to try a Scandinavian classic, opt for the meatballs!

Fiskehoddorna: Also known as Malmö’s fish market, this spot lines the street with colourful huts. Here, you can pick up the local catch-of-the-day to bring home and cook, or you can opt to eat to eat on their back patio. You won’t find better fish ‘n chips in Malmö, trust me.

Slottsrädgårdens Kafé: Nestled in the middle of Kungsparken, a park located in the centre of the city, you’ll find this cafe. This is the perfect summer patio spot for lunch or fika in the sun. [must try: the hummus plate!]

Boru Bowl Bar: Boru Bowl is your spot for the most delicious Asian-inspired bowls. The Crispy Pork is their most popular, but my personal go-to is the Boru Salmon.

the best dinner in malmö

Ruths (formerly Bastard): This is a really popular spot in Malmö – and for good reason. Ruths offers a really premium food experience. Using high-quality, locally-sourced ingredients, the chefs at Ruths serve up incredible Scandinavian-inspired cuisine. With a selection of small plates to choose from, you get to experience some of the best food Malmö has to offer. And, if you’re looking for something a bit more casual, you can opt for pizza in their courtyard in the warmer months. Other great news: as of winter 2021, Ruths is now opened all day! So you can go here for breakfast, brunch, lunch, or dinner. They also have a shop at the front with homemade goods, and it is my favourite spot to buy supplies for charcuterie night.

Lyran Matbar: This is my favourite restaurant in Malmö. Which, in a city full of world-class food options, that’s a huge statement. But it really is so good. In this tiny little restaurant, chefs use only seasonal, primarily local ingredients, so the menu changes everyday. When you arrive, you’ll be presented with the ingredient list for the day, but there is an element of surprise the specific menu items will be presented to you throughout the evening. At Lyran, you must opt for the tasting menu (although you can choose from a meat or veggie option). Make sure to make a reservation far in advance, because there is less than ten tables and this spot is popular.

Mutantur: I really love Mutantur. Like, a lot (notice a theme here). Mutanture serves a variety of gastronomic small plates with flavours inspired from around the world. I love the small tasting portions, because you’re able to try a variety of different options, all thoughtfully curated from fresh ingredients. If you’re lucky, you can find a drop-in bar seat. But I’d also recommend booking this spot well in advance.

Riket: This place is fun and trendy, and the food is incredible. Another spot with small plates made from in-season locally sourced ingredients, Riket serves up some pretty incredible food from their tiny bar side kitchen. They also have an impressive wine list with lots of natural wine options, plus a lively patio alongside the restaurant in the summer months.

Saiko: Step into this restaurant and I swear you’ll feel like you’ve teleported to Japan. To say I am obsessed with Saiko would be an understatement. This Japanese restaurant in Malmö offers small sharing plates, and recommend roughly three plates per person, which means you can virtually try the entire menu. And don’t forget to wash it down with a glass of sake.

LU: This is the best spot for premium yet affordable Chinese food in Malmö. It is really some of the very best Hong Kong-influenced Cantonese food I have ever had, with a variety of meat dishes and dumplings.

Opopoppa: Serving unique flavours of pizza by the slice, cans of beer, and a selection of natural wines, this intimate spot is a local favourite.

Casual Street Food: Looking for the best burger in Malmö? Look no further. The high quality burgers here blew me away (this coming from someone who doesn’t even really burgers…).

Soi 29: The best spot for premium Thai food in Malmo. I really love this spot. The space is cool and the food is so well done. If you’re looking to splurge, I would go for the five-dish tasting menu for the ultimate experience. It is fantastic!

Nam Do: If you love Vietnamese food as much as I do, this is a great place to go. The ambiance is cool, the food is delicious, and portions are very generous. I have tried other options, and in my opinion, this is best Vietnamese restaurant in Malmö.

Malmö Brewing Co.: With a large selection of in-house and international beers, paired with some good old southern cooking (think mac & cheese, pulled pork, and creamed corn), this is a great spot for a casual bite.

400 Grader: If you’re looking for excellent pizza in Malmo, 400 Grader is definitely the best I’ve tried!.

the best falafal in malmö

Did you know that falafel is basically the unofficial food of Malmö? You’ll find it everywhere and it is easily the cheapest food you can buy for only 30-40 SEK. There are many awesome falafel restaurants in Malmö to choose from. However, if you were to ask me where to find the best falafel in Malmö, my answer would easily be Värnhem’s Falafel. Not only is the falafel tasty, but they actually make you a fresh pita right in front of you. And really, it doesn’t get better than that.

Best cafes in Malmö

Since moving to Sweden, if I’ve learned one thing, it’s that Swedes really love their coffee. I wasn’t a huge coffee drinker until I moved to Malmö – and now, well, you could argue my coffee intake has gotten a bit carried away. It’s hard not to fall for the Scandinavian coffee culture when you have some of the best cafes in Malmö minutes away from your apartment.

Sweden’s culture is so coffee-centric, they’ve developed a verb to describe a coffee break: fika. What does fika mean? Well it loosely translates to “having coffee and a sweet with friends or family.” And while it may seem like a bit of novelty, it really isn’t. Colleagues will suggest we take a “fika break” at the office, friends will often “meet for a fika” after work or in their spare time. It is a moment to pause and enjoy time with the people you care about. Pretty special, eh?

With that being said, there is absolutely no shortage of spots to have a fika in Malmö. I’ve been sharing some of these on my Malmö food guide, but as this post gets longer and longer, I thought my favourite cafes deserved their own place to shine.

I’ve been to a lot of cafes in the city, and in this post I’ll be rounding the best cafes in Malmö – let’s go!

Must-Try Swedish Fika Sweets

Before we start counting down the best cafes in Malmö, I want to share with you a few of the best Swedish fika sweets that you must try. There are of course many others you’ll find throughout the year, but these are a few easy favourites:

Chokladboll: A chocolate ball (roughly the size of a golf ball) made of oats, sugar, and cocoa, and coated in coconut.

Kanelbullar: The cinnamon bun is arguably the most popular “Swedish” dessert. The local take on the cinnamon bun is different than the version with icing found in many other countries. It is simply dough rolled up with a cinnamon and sugar filling.

Kardemummabullar: Made in a similar way to the cinnamon bun, this one is filled with cardamom. It is my personal favourite Swedish fika treat.

Semla: This is most commonly eaten on Shrove Tuesday, but you can find it in cafes all year. It is a cardamom-spiced sweet roll with the centre carved out, and it is filled with almond paste and topped with whipped cream.

Kladdkaka: This is more commonly known as mud cake in English, and is a thin sticky chocolate cake topped with icing sugar, and typically some type of berries, like raspberry.

Lussebullar: Around the Christmas holidays, you will see these swirled saffron buns everywhere. Traditionally they are topped with raisins, but more trendy versions include vanilla or cardamom fillings. 

Atrium Cafe

An easy choice for fika, brunch, or lunch, Atrium is a bright cafe with tons of greenery serving sweets, and a variety of brunch and lunch options. I love the ambiance here, and they have a wonderful garden patio in the warmer months.

 Must Try: They make a fantastic golden milk latte.

Atrium Cafe Malmo

Solde Kaffebar & Kafferosteri

The best coffee in Malmö? You’ll find it at Solde. This specialty coffe shop roasts their own beans and is the best place to go if you want to buy local coffee beans in Malmö. We brew almost exclusively Solde coffee at home, and love to go here for fika too.

Must Try: Their “Mästers Kaffe” blend is an easy favourite for me, but you’re looking for a lighter coffee, the “Brors Kaffe” blend is a favourite of many.

If you aren’t local, you can also order their coffee beans online.

St. jakobs stenugnsbageri

St. Jakob’s is a super popular bakery that offers many locations scattered throughout Malmö. My favourite is their newest location in Davidshall on Södra Förstadsgatan – where you can sit on a lovely bistro-style terrace alongside the pedestrian-only street.

Must Try: Cardamom buns (especially the saffron cardamom buns that they make during the Christmas holidays).

St. Jakobs

Söderberg & Sara

This is my favourite bakery for bread in Malmo! They make the best bread I have tried in the city, and it has become a bit of a tradition for us to pick up a fresh loaf there on weekend mornings.

Must try: Their sour dough bread, grilled cheese sandwiches – they are also known for sourcing some unique coffee roasts!

Bageri Leve

Looking for the best vegan bakery in Malmö? This is it … especially if you’re in the mood for donuts! Every Friday they have a “donut of the day” and locals queue for them – they are that good!

Must Try: As I mentioned, the donuts. But I also highly recommend the fresh-baked focaccia (and really any other of their baked goods).

Söderberg & Sara

Uggla Kaffebar

I absolutely love this cute little coffee spot. It’s located very close to my apartment, which obviously makes me a regular. And they serve good coffee and the perfect fika sweets. In the summer months, you can head across the street to their bistro setup in the middle of St. Knut’s Square.

Must Try: I love their matcha lattes.

Uggla Kaffebar

Noir Kaffekultur

This central spot located in the beautiful old town is a great spot for a patio fika. Sit outside with a coffee, watch the bikes zoom by, and I swear you’ll feel like you’re on a terrace in Paris.

Must Try: Coffee – and they make a lovely avocado toast!

Lilla Kafferosteriet

This central cafe has great coffee and an assortment of cakes and pastries. In the warmer months, head outside to the backyard terrace. It is the the perfect spot to soak in the afternoon sun.

Must Try: The employees are coffee experts, so I’d stick with a regular coffee here. And they always have a big selection of sweets.

Cafe No. 6

If you’re looking for a cosy fika spot in St. Knut’s, this is another great option. Across the street from the cafe, they have a lovely garden to take your fika outside.

Must Try: Coffee paired with biscotti.

AB Småland

AB Småland is more than just a cafe – it is a full lifestyle and Scandinavian concept store. Browse through the trendy shop full of Scandi goods, and then grab a fika in the cafe. 

Must Try: This is my favourite golden milk latte in the city.

AB Smaland

Kaffebaren på Möllan

Great coffee and atmosphere in the trendy Möllan neighbourhood. In the summer months, I suggest taking your coffee out front and people watching while people shop at the farmer’s market in the square.

Must Try: Coffee!

jord

Jord, which translates to “earth” in English, is a vegan cafe and breakfast spot. I really love the ambiance of this cosy cafe, and their food is really good if you’re looking for vegan food in Malmö.

Must Try: The vegan breakfast food is SO good. I particularly love their seasonal oat bowls.

Jord Malmo

Pâtisserie David

This French-style patisserie serves many traditional French pastries, and has of the best courtyard patios in the city. If you’re looking for a French-inspired fika, this is your spot.

Must Try: The macarons and crepes.

Slottsträdgårdens kafé

Located in the middle of the beautiful Slottsparken, this cafe is a popular patio spot in Malmö. After you’ve had your fika, make sure to head next door to Slottsträdgården to admire the beautiful gardens, and the iconic Malmö windmill.

Must Try: They always have a variety of sweets – but this is a great spot for lunch, too.

Must Try: I love their cappucino.

Hallamölla Vattenfall

It’s no secret that I love the autumn season. It feels like a time of new beginnings and fresh starts. The weather is mild and the smell of fresh fallen leaves is something I wish I could bottle up so I could experience it all year long. I’ve always loved autumn, but autumn in Sweden is really something special. 

Last year I wrote about my favourite spots to experience autumn in southern Sweden (you can read that post here). So this year, I wanted to share a new version with all the best spots to experience autumn in Sweden in 2020. We’ve been spending a ton of time outside in nature. And I can’t wait to share my favourite spots and memories with you in a little photo diary.

Söderåsens nationalpark
Solnäs Gård

5 can't miss spots to experience autumn in Sweden

1. Hallamölla Vattenfall

Located just outside the town of Brösarp near Skåne’s east coast, Hallamölla Vattenfall is the biggest waterfall in southern Sweden, and is especially beautiful in the autumn months when the leaves surrounding the waterfall turn orange and yellow. Surrounding Hallamölla, you can also find plenty of stunning trails, including part of the Skåneleden trails.

Hallamölla Vattenfall

2. Brösarps backar (The hills of Brosarp)

I first visited Brösarps backar, also located outside the town of Brösarp, when we visited Talldungens gårdshotell this past summer (read a blog post about that experience here). And I fell in love with the hiking trails and knew I wanted to come back in the autumn.

Brösarps backar is always beautiful and arguably home to my favourite hiking trails in Skåne. But it really puts on a show in the autumn.

The rolling hills of Brösarp have a very “Tuscany” vibe to them. Along the Backaleden trail through Brösarps southern hills, you will find the best views. Start at the trail head near Brösarp and head toward the train tracks following the yellow trail markers. These trails also lead you through open pastures of horses and cows, forests, and valleys.

Scroll through some of my favourite photos below.

3. Söderåsens nationalpark

Söderåsens nationalpark is arguably the most popular national park in southern Sweden. A common day trip from Malmö or Helsingborg, it is home to some of the most beautiful trails in Skåne, dense forests, lakes, and an incredible lookout point over a deep valley of trees.

We visited Söderåsen on a Saturday and arrived to realize that all the parking near the most popular trails was taken. I guess we weren’t the only ones who wanted to see the autumn leaves here! While we could have parked in the town and walked over, hiking on crowded trails didn’t sounds like a great way to spend our afternoon. So, we drove off in search of a less crowded entrance to the park.

A few hundred metres south of the main parking entrance, we headed up a road that was covered by a canopy of red trees and parked our car. These “non-touristy”  trails weren’t busy at all, and we hiked to the lake in Härsnäs naturreservat. I have never in my life seen such dense forest of red and orange. STUNNING.

4. Alnarps Slott (Alnarp Castle)
Alnarps slott

Alnarps Slott is located in the town of Alnarp between Malmö and Lund on the campus of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences. The original castle was built in the 1200s, and then a French Renaissance-style castle was resurrected in the 1800s. The beautiful building is covered by bright red ivy and is surrounded by tons of trees and walking trails.

If you’re looking for major autumn Harry Potter vibes, this is your spot!

5. Flackarps mölla (Flackarp Mill)

Located just outside of Lund, Flackarps mölla is an old windmill that was built in 1868 and stayed in operation until 1950. The architecture of the historical windmill is beautiful, but it is especially picturesque in the autumn months when the trees around the windmill begin changing colours.

Flackarps mölla

6. Trollskogen

Trollskogen is part of the Prästaskogen nature reserve, which is a popular hiking area outside of Lund near the village of Torna Hällestad. This particular forest very unique because it is home to the unique Skåne twisted beech trees. These trees are very unordinary, with the branches twisting and knotting together.

These unique trees are always worth visiting, but they look really beautiful in the autumn.

7. Glorias Äppelgård - Apple Picking in Skåne

If you’re looking for apple picking in Skåne, you can visit Glorias Äppelgård to pick your own. This apple farm outside of Lund offers a huge variety of apples for picking on their property – and they are both cheap and delicious!

Not in the mood to pick your own? You can also stop by nearby Solnäs Gård to purchase locally famous Kivik apples (and other apple-related products made in southern Sweden, like chutneys and ciders). Make sure you make some time to stay for a fika, too

When is the best time to experience the autumn leaves in Sweden?

Autumn in Sweden, specifically in Skåne, varies each year depending on weather conditions leading up to the autumn season. However, peak autumn leaves in Sweden can typically be experienced around the end of October, and sometimes even into early November.

While it is hard to predict exactly when the peak will be, visiting from mid- to late-October should give you an opportunity to see the beauty of the autumn season.

Check out this autumn in Sweden map to help find these spots!
