Have dinner in Ystad or at your hotel:
Dinner suggestion 1: Restaurant Steakhouse Bryggeriet. A pair of enormous copper boilers tower at the centre of the floor creates a rather unique interior atmosphere. The half-timbered building dated back to mid 17th century is transformed into a traditional Steakhouse while the brewery continues to maintain its old tradition of brewing beer, ”Ystad Fresh Beer” being one of its most well known beers. The Steakhouse/Brewery is the only one of its kind in all of Skåne.
Dinner suggestion 2: Restaurant “Store Thor”, which occupies a series of vaulted cellars that were built as part of a monastery in the 1500s. Several hundred years later, the Rådhus (Town Hall) was reconstructed after a disastrous fire above the monastery’s cellars. Today, amid small tables and romantic candlelight will give you a warm
After breakfast, drive back to Malmö, If you are in the mood for more Wallander, take a Sidetrack to Sjöbo and Vollsjö, where the killer in the Fifth Women had a big baking oven.
