Travel Tips for Skåne in South Sweden · Happy Interior Blog
A couple of weeks in the past I embarked on a wonderful excursion to Skåne, the southern tip of Sweden, next an invitation from the neighborhood tourism board Stop by Skåne. I was thrilled mainly because the only issue I knew about Skåne so much was its greatest metropolis: Malmö. I traveled a several decades ago to discover the metropolis and its vibrant style scene. This time my mission was related, still broader. I was likely to stop by Malmö, Trelleborg and Helsingborg and go to the new design competition, the Southern Sweden Design Days.
Small did I know how attractive and picturesque Skåne is. My initial times I spent in the vicinity of Trelleborg, in the southern tip of the area. It is there where by you can in fact go to the southernmost stage of Sweden and acquire in the fresh new sea breeze and the environmentally friendly landscape. In fact in this season the landscape is all eco-friendly and yellow with rapeseed fields all to the horizon.
What I loved about the Trelleborg spot was its near proximity to Malmö, and however you felt like seriously out at the countryside – even while it was a mere 20 minutes drive by vehicle from the city. I have a few particular highlights from that location: Slättarps Gård, a farm-turned-notion shop in the midst of fertile fields with a good cafe the chic and new Weinbergs Resort with a great cafe and Axatorpsgården, a dreamy Mattress & Breakfast exactly where I was staying (but I will inform you more about this a single is a separate weblog submit).
Malmö was its fantastic self as common – this town variety of mixes Swedish and Danish vibes, still it also feels quite cosmopolitan. And sunny days are the very best in city – it is as if most people is outside having fun with the sunshine and gentle temperatures. My mission was to go and visit this year’s Southern Sweden Design and style Days, which are scattered all-around the city in different spots. In among I necessary to prevent in one particular of my favourite minimal eating places in city: Noir. And just after a good chunk & vino, I stopped at Olsson & Gerthel, a store packed with Scandinavian design and style that always can make my coronary heart skip a conquer.
The rest of the day I used getting the resourceful scene and designs from southern Sweden. I loved the colourful and playful layouts of Swedish Ninja as nicely as the fashionable outside furniture selection of Nola. Speaking of outside (and indoor why not): the wood bench by designer Marc Hoogendijk would be undoubtedly my decision if I had house!
One more fantastic discovery was the do the job of young Swedish Artist Elsa Unnegård. She showcased a stool manufactured of burnt wooden that seems like driftwood, but is in actuality sculpted by her. I uncovered it pretty sculptural, incredibly artsy – nevertheless sensible, as you can actually use it as a stool. Also I loved to see a mix of organic and natural styles, resources, hues as opposed to practical, attractive home furniture that stems from what they simply call ‘technomimicry’, mimicking and trying to get inspiration in technical styles. I spotted some plant solutions as effectively – of class. Skandiform showcased the Allé Corner space dividers that are generally intelligent plant stands to construction areas with plant divisions.
Also for those people of you considering of Malmö as a wonderful vacation place (and I motivate you to include it your travel bucket record): remaining in the Duxiana Resort is a perfect alternative: you are super central and you will rest like a child in their incredible beds!
The last portion of my Skåne trip brought me to Helsingborg, a 50 minutes travel north of Malmö. The town is lively and has a great shoreline to love (windy) walks, cute espresso areas like the Bruket Kaffebar, amazing places to eat like the Sillen & Makrillen overlooking the Öresund, as effectively as a really funky hotel: the Vault Lodge!
But when in Helsingborg, I encourage you to drive out to the surrounding countryside, as the nature is attractive and the soil here has a ton of clay which resulted in one particular of Sweden’s oldest and most classic pottery factories: the Wallåkra Stoneware Factory. There I had the incredible prospect to get back to the potter’s wheel after so numerous yrs and toss my own minor piece of the quite normal Skåne clay. I am curious to see the minimal bud vase as soon as it’s fired and comes below in Berlin. Near by you can also cease at the ‘Tomatenshus’, a tomato expanding farm, that grows exceptionally delightful tomatoes. And sure, I bought hungry there way too – so just subsequent doors is the cafe Overlook Alice Kroog & Delikatesser and their signature dish is: tomato pie! Sure, go for it! Oh indeed!!
From Helsingborg I explained goodbye to Skåne by having the ferry and placing above to Helsingør in Denmark. But that is a different tale to be explained to. For now I hope you savored the small tour of Skåne and its vibrant locations and design scene. See you soon at the Axatorpsgården Bed & Breakfast below on the site!
