  Greyfriars Abbey
by Sjalen

A very nice town with more half timbered houses than anywhere else in Sweden and quite a medieval feel. There are also beaches, a local brewery and plenty of countryside castles. Finally, it is the home of fictional inspector Wallander, for those of you reading Swedish crime novels.
Ystad is also one of the gateway to gorgeous Österlen and has plenty of ferries from Poland and Bornholm (and ferries from Germany to nearby Trelleborg) so no excuse not to come! Read more on my Ystad page.

Directions: South east of Malmö.
