Gamla Staden (Ystad)

The charming heart of a thousand-year-old seaside town.

The commercial port at Ystad, which is the first thing you’ll see if you arrive by train or bus, is not perhaps the city’s most handsome face… but it’s a short walk to the charming “old town” (or gamla staden, as the Swedes say), where a fine afternoon can be had wandering with friends and seeing what’s around the next corner.

Getting hungry? There are some very distinctive options to choose from here! Or if you’d rather not be surrounded by cute little buildings, head down to the shoreline for some subaqua safari
