"Ystad" Sweden Things to Do Tip by Leipzig

  street in Ystad
by Leipzig

Ystad is a small town in the very south of Sweden. What me surprised most here were all the half-timbered houses. Where others burnt down in several wars and firestorms, Ystad preserved.
The oldest parts of Ystad date from the 13th century, like Maria church (built 1200) or the monastery (1267).
