visit to lund easter 2012
Save

My daughter is studying in Lund in 2012. We are planning to visit her with our 21 year old son (daughter 22) for 2 weeks around April. We live in Australia. Can anyone advise us on how to find self contained accommodation and the best sort of self contained accommodation around Lund. We are not sure of the cost of accommodation in Lund but we have a medium budget in mind.

We will be staying in Lund for a week approximately.

Can anyone also suggest some nice day trips around Lund and also a suggestion for a 3 day weekend away, would this be too short a time from Lund for a visit to Stockholm.

Thanks for your help.

About day trips around Lund:

* A visit to Copenhagen over the day is a very good option. Lost of things to do and see. This would probably be the number one recommendation of a day trip from Lund.

* A day trip to the island of Ven between Denmark and Sweden. No cars on the island, so rent a bicycle and go around the island. Visit one of Swedens very few whisky distilleries, visit the old site of the laboratory of 16th century astronomer Tycho Brahe and just enjoy the views. www.landskrona.se/Pages/Page.aspx?pageId=3602

* Rent a car and head east towards the towns of Ystad, Simrishamn and Kivik and enjoy the nature and the small fishing villages around the area of Osterlen. Pay a visit to the Iron Age Stone Ship arangement of "Ale's stones" - Swedens own "Stonehedge". Visit Scandinavias best preserved middle age stronghold of Glimmingehus. Between the 6-15 of April, the annual art display tour is open where you can drive around and visit artists at their studios.

* Take a day trip to the island of Bornholm. Join a bus tour to get the most out of it. Bornholm is fantastic.

* A visit to Malmo for shopping and museums.

* A visit to Helsingborg and from there join an old Swedish tradition of travelling by boat to the Danish town of Helsingor, home of a lot of shops and Kronborgs castle - the place where Shakespeare put the story of Hamlet.

About a trip to Stockholm - yes it is doable, but you'll have to be very picky about what you want to see and do. Travel from either Copenhagen airport or Malmo Airport (Sturup) and you will be able to have a brief but still justified encounter with Stockholm. After all - cruise ship tourists visit Stockholm for less than a day and still thinks it is worth it...

Thanks so much for your detailed reply. It will be a great help with our planning.

Do you have any ideas for self contained accommodation.

Thanks again
