Southern Sweden in 9 days
Route collection made by Evert Kuiken - RouteXpert
Southern Sweden, Götaland: a very varied area. In the south mainly flat, meadows, sea, views, beach, busy harbors. More northerly dense forests, hills, gravel roads, quiet towns (we would call them villages), lakes. And then Öland: a large, flat island with various surprises such as the two lighthouses, the Iron Age fort on the southern tip, nice little harbors, castles and ruins, also belonging to the Swedish royal couple. And wooden houses, nature, friendly people, space everywhere. The word "cuddly" "sometimes cross my mind. So gnarly. The roads are mostly good, even the gravel roads are fine to drive without off-road experience or engine. This route collection contains 9 routes of more than 2000 kilometers and takes you along the outer edges of Götaland: from Malmö along the east coast via Ystad, Karlshamm, Karlskrona and Kalmar to the island of Öland. From there, the route goes inland to Vimmerby, back to the coast at Västervik, up to Linköping and Motala to the large lake Vättern. Continuing underneath via Jonköping to Gothenburg on the west coast and then via a break inland to enjoy the forests, lakes, gravel roads and nature via Varberg, Halmstad and Helsingborg back to Malmö.

The starting point is Malmö, at "" the bridge "" over the Kattengat between Denmark and Sweden. We drove there by taking the ferry from Puttgarden to Rødby and then crossing the bridge over the Danish islands of Lolland, Falster and Sjaelland via Copenhagen. But you can also take the ferry from Rostock to Trelleborg. Or you can drive all the way over land via Kolding and Odense in Denmark.

In addition to the sights below, there are special towns, nature reserves and castles / mansions on which route.
Route 1 goes along the coast from the southernmost tip of Sweden, the province of Skåne, through beautiful nature reserves and well-known towns such as Ystad to Karlshamm. Places of interest: a Viking village near Skanör, Skanör itself, Smygehuk (the southernmost tip of Sweden), Ystad (Wallander!), The stone formation at Käseberga, car museum at Simrishamn.
Route 2 goes through the province of Blekinge past towns like Ronneby and Kalmar to the island of Öland. Places of interest: kitesurf beach at Kristianopel, stone formation at Gettlinge, Långe Jan lighthouse.
Route 3 goes over Öland and then a bit more into the forests of the mainland towards Vimmerby. Places of interest: the ancient castle at Eketorp, Trollskogen (forest with strangely shaped trees and a beach with the wreck of a stranded boat), lighthouse Långe Erik, the special rock formations in the sea of Byrums raukar, Aboda lake and viewpoint.
Route 4 is a bit shorter because you then end at Vimmerby: the birthplace of Astrid Lindgren (from Pippi, among others). Places of interest: a moose park, an ancient oak, Vimmerby with Astrid Lindgrens amusement park and birth house / museum.
Route 5 takes you back to the east coast, at Västervik and then goes further north and back inland to Linköping. Places of interest: a moose park (more beautiful than the one on the previous day), a troll forest near Gamleby (ABBA city ...), knight's castle Ekenäs, the Göta Canal with a lock complex.
Route 6 is also shorter and continues along the Göta Canal to Motala on Lake Vättern and then further south to Gränna, where you can cross to Visingsö Island. The route is shorter because then you have time to visit Visingsö. Places of interest: car and motorcycle museum and aquarium in Motala, Alvastra monastery ruin, Visingsö, viewing tower, boat trip.
Route 7 takes you via Jönköping to Gothenburg. Places of interest: old wooden houses at Huskvarna (Jönköping) and of course Gothenburg.
Route 8 goes back into the country so that you can enjoy the beautiful forests and lakes and gravel roads again. Then back to the coast with nice towns such as Varberg and Falkenberg. Places of interest: an old mill, a wooden bathhouse in the sea, beach, museum with remains of aircraft from the Second World War.
Route 9 takes you back to Malmö, although you can also cross earlier, at Helsingborg to Denmark. First you pass the beautiful city of Halmstad and the viewpoint at Mölle. Places of interest: a special bakery / lunchroom, accessible beach, lighthouse.

A collection with very varied routes, many sights with something for everyone, excellent roads and also pieces of gravel that are easy to ride. Of course you can change the daily schedule by making routes longer, shortening or combining them. If you skip all the sights, you can also drive this in 7 days.
