Discover boutique hotels in Skåne, Sweden
Skane is Sweden's southernmost county, a scenic and diverse region with beautiful stretches of sandy coastline, idyllic pastures and charming traditional towns. The region’s economic centre is Malmö, a cosmopolitan coastal city with a Dutch-Reinassance old town and a modern waterfront home to the Turning Torso skyscraper. The impressive Öresund bridge arches over the strait into Denmark, making day trips to Copenhagen a breeze. Beyond the principal cities, things are much more rural: towns often back onto flower-flecked fields, organic farms or stretches of unspoiled coastline, sometimes overlooked by impressive red-brick castles built by powerful Danes (to whom Skane once belonged).
