Ystad Travel Guide: 34 reviews and 92 photos


Yes Ystad really is quaint, and very Swedish in some respects.

We stopped here for a couple of days en route from Bornholm (DK) to København.

Andrew got a chance to use his Swedish (sort of).

We did stay at this hotel (in the Wallander Suite as a free upgrade - but see the hotel review below under Hotels & Accommodations) and enjoyed the hospitality of the microbrewery/restaurant next door.

Monastery garden

The old monastery in Ystad has a rather excellent herb garden/cabbage patch. It is very well signed, but if you want more information you can dial-up a short guided tour on your mobile phone (in English!)

Hotel Sekelgården

We were not so impressed by this hotel. See the individual write-up linked below (under Hotels & Accommodations) for the reasons why.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Very clean. Very friendly.
  • Cons:Maybe too clean!
  • In a nutshell:Very Swedish, but not very Swedish (discuss...)
