Ystad  is a small but charming city in Scania, part of southern Sweden. It is situated on the south coast of Scania with good beaches east of the town. Ystad is known internationally as the setting for many of the novels of Henning Mankell, featuring fictional Ystad police inspector Kurt Wallander.

Walk through the old part of the city and enjoy the old half-timbered houses.
During summer, enjoy a walk by the beach (east of the town). Stop by and grab a beer or ice cream at "Fritidsbaren" and get a good view of the ocean.
Every other year, Ystad hosts a Tattoo, a must-see if you are interested in music. See www.ystadtattoo.se for more info.
