We went with friends mid-winter. The buildings were empty and the facilities closed. Nevertheless just walking round you could really feel the history. The tower was unlocked so we also climbed to the top. It must be an awesome place in the summer but was...More

When coming to the South of Sweden, in Skåne, you have to viking places to visit. The Trelleborgen in Trelleborg and Foteviken Museum in Höllviken. Both give you a good view in how the vikings lived. A "must see" attraction according to me.

Nice old outdoor museum Vikings. Certainly need to look, the bus stop is 7min. so walk in Malmo can be reached easily. The Vikings have a nice history, you can fit inside their original home.
