Besides some (admittedly cute but otherwise unremarkable) villages, the centralort of Skurup is pretty much all there is to know about the kommun with which it shares a name… and, much to the perpetual rancour of its residents, Skurup itself is mostly only mentioned as a erroneous synonym for the nearby Sturup aerodrome, over the border in Svedala.
(To add insult to injury, said aerodrome is commonly labelled as “Malmö aerodrome” outside of Sweden, which still doesn’t entirely explain the Skurup’s clunky but aspirational slogan of “When in Europe, don’t miss Europe”. No, we’re not making this up.)
The local folkhöskola has a reputation for its excellent jazz courses, as well as teaching in journalism and film. Readers of this guide may be more interested in Skurup’s role alongside Svedala in the Tänk om, ställ om (Rethink, Reset!) soil restoration project, and its position toward the eastern end of Skåne’s verdant Black Plains.
