Malmo Countryside Itinerary

Hello Everyone! My mother and I will travel to Sweden to see where her ancestors are from. This has been on her bucket list for a very long time! The road trip will include the towns Skurup, Slimminge, Balkåkra, Blentarp, Svenstorp, Hällstorp, Annelöv, and Barsebäck. We plan to spend a short time in each city, as well as Malmo. Are there any sites or interesting things to do, places to eat, or interesting places to stay near these places? We enjoy castles, museums, history, art, culture, food, and churches! We will have a rental car. We would appreciate any help you can offer, as this is our first time to Sweden, and we would love some direction from the more experienced. Thank you in advance!

The website for Skåne visitors helps you very good to find interesing places, e. g. castles or food.

Personally I liked Ystad from times when I sailed with my parents. From there a turbo ferry gets in a short time to Danish island of Bornholm - worth a day trip with car, maybe also one night. Today also a destination for crime literature fans (in footsteps of Mankell's Wallander).

Fun fact: Malmö has a neighborhood name Sorgenfri which has the meaning careless / no more worries - nearly also in German language.

Visit Skåne is a good start. I'm also not sure how you define town, but some of the places you list are hardly big enough to be called villages so there is really not much to see in them. Apart from your family history.

Thank you, everyone, for your generous suggestions! We are trying to decide between 1 or 2 days in the area. Your ideas are all wonderful!
