Places of interest in Trelleborg

For most vacationers Trelleborg is only a transit station – wrongly, because the southernmost city of Sweden looks back on an eventful history and is worth a short detour in any case. Trelleborg is also highly recommended for a first Swedish breakfast after arrival on the ferry or a last coffee before the journey home to Germany.

St. Nicolai Church

St. Nicolai Church on Trelleborg’s old market square (gamla torget) dates from the first half of the 13th century. It got its present form by considerable reconstruction at the end of the 19th century. Also from the 13th century are the foundation walls of a Franciscan monastery, which was once located at Gamla Torget.

On the Stortorget (“big square”) in the center of the old town is the Sjöormsfontän, the “sea serpent fountain” with a sculpture by the Swedish sculptor Axel Emil Ebbe (1868-1941). Other sculptures by this famous Swedish Art Nouveau artist can be found in the Trelleborg Art Hall on the eastern edge of the city park.

Viking castle Trelleborg

Trelleborg owes its name to a ring castle built by the Danish King Sven Gabelbart, the remains of which were only found in 1988 at the highest point of Trelleborg’s old town. A reconstruction of this “Trelleborg” can be seen today as a reconstruction in the middle of the city center.Viking games, concerts and theater performances are held here in the summer.
