      Cotters' row of houses
    by Sjalen

Torup is a castle built by a Danish family in the 16th century, and has an interesting historical mix of Danish nobility life and Swedish 19th century art within its walls. Read more about its history in my Svedala page. You can tour the castle weekends in May and June (check before going) as it is still inhabited, even though it has been sold to Malmö municipality a while ago. It is surrounded by a wonderful beech forest where people from all over the Malmö region come to walk or excersise and there is also a Cotters' Museum with a wonderful cafe nearby, dedicated to the farm labourers owning nothing, and struggling primarily on Scanian and Lake Mälaren farms until the 1950s.

Address: Torup
Directions: Outside Bara, east of Malmö.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
