The Abby is like rest of the city Ystad. Perfectly preserved. Inside the building they try to show how the life is back then. A great visit for a small fee.

We took the opportunity of visiting the abbey whereas we were waiting for the ferry. It is a nice visit, with beautiful gardens around (flowers garden, vegetable garden, area dedicated to roses ). We strongly recommend this location

If you are going to Bornholm and are waiting fo the ferry or if you are in Ystad (which is a really charming town) you must visit the abbey and the museum. If you ar just in souhern Sweden it is not worth a detour - but the town kinda is, and then you might as well take a look :-D

The abbey is Ystad is lovely and well preserved, with various aspects of monastic life highlighted throughout the history of the city. A very interesting way for spending an hour or two, especially on a grey day.
