Ystad: Sweden's Hollywood

The tranquil town of Ystad is well known for the beautiful scenery in the numerous Kurt Wallander Crime novels by Henry Mankell. The small town is very well on foot in only 5 Minutes from the ferry port. The numerous small brick houses, Churches and the monastery are very nice points of contact. Just outside on a hill above Kaseberga numerous Hinkel stones lie the “Ales Stenar”, which date back to the Viking era. Who would rather shop in Malmö, can be conveniently connected by train to the 63 Drive for one km from Malmö.
