To see and to do
We recommend you who stay with us for a few days a trip to Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen.
You can reach Copenhagen easily by train or car. With the train, from either Lund, Landskrona or Kävlinge, you will reach Copenhagens central station within an hour.
A kids’ favourite: Tivoli (an amusement park) is located directly next to the central station. On a nice walk from there to beautiful Nyhavn, you can take a stroll through Ströget, a popular street full of shopping possibilities and restaurants.
A little side note here: an Öresund-rund train ticket includes public transportation in Scania and Copenhagen, one train ride over the bridge and one train ride to and with the ferry from Helsingör to Helsingborg. The ticket is valid for 48 hours which gives you enough time to discover the pearls of the region. Another bonus: it comes with a few discounts for e.g. the Sofiero Castle in Helsingborg or the Louisiana Museum of Modern Arts close to Helsingör.

Ven, a little Island in the middle of the Öresund, offers beautiful nature, idyllic marinas and the history of the astronomer Tycho Brahe.
Ven is located in the middle of the Öresund between Denmark and Sweden. The public ferry departs from Landskrona and the ride takes only about 30 minutes. When arriving in Bäckvickens harbour, we recommend you to rent one of the yellow bikes that have become characteristic for the island!
If you don’t want to bike, you can take a bus, tractor and trailer, horse and carriage or a golf cart. You can even rent e-bikes for easier uphill rides. Hiking is of course another option or why not trekking with alpacas? Cosy farm shops, culinary experiences, swimming, nature, golf, ancient monuments and other exciting sights are waiting for you!
Tycho Brahe Museum
The museum portrays one of Scandinavia’s most important persons of the scientific world, the Scanian/Danish nobleman Tycho Brahe. At the end of the 16th century, he had an advanced research centre on the island Ven with a castle and an observatory. Today you can visit a museum, an underground observatory, a renaissance garden and a themed playground.
The Distillery Spirit of Hven Backafallsbyn
