Welcome to Fredriksdal museums and gardens

Nowhere in Europe will you find an equivalent to Fredriksdal. This is Skåne in miniature, with 360,000 square metres of unique settings, buildings and gardens. Here, the history and diversity of the countryside are caringly kept alive. With its museums and gardens, Fredriksdal offers interesting activities for all ages, all year round.

Take an explanatory walk, watch the animals grazing or join the manor maids for an interesting tour. Buy a bag of old fashioned sweets in the old town quarter, or your favourite rose in the flower shop. Find answers to your questions on nature or folklore, or just lie back and relax in a hammock.

With its historical parks and gardens, houses and farms, animals, meadows, woods and pastures, all situated around an eighteenth century manor house, a visit to Fredriksdal is like making a journey back into the past.

    Fredriksdals walk

    An entertaining presentation of Fredriksdals museums and gardens, covering both cultural history and the natural world. When the fields are in bloom we will wander through the abundant flora, and as autumn draws near one can see some of our 130 different types of fruit ripening on the trees. Enrich your sense of smell in the herb and spice garden, while discovering all about the use of spices in folklore. Listen to the history of the people and the Manor House from the 18th century and why Fredriksdal came to be. During the walk you will certainly meet some of our traditional livestock, and we end our walk either in the town's old quarter or on a rustic farm.

    Price: 1300 SEK per hour/guide (max. 40 persons/guide) + admission

    Garden Walk

    Our first visit is to the rose garden after which we stroll through the French and English parks. Our tour takes us into our unique botanical landscape garden where you can experience the rich variety of Scania's (Skåne's) countryside. The tour is varied according to the time of year so that visitors are able to experience the changes in the world of nature.

    Cultural History Tour

    Your guide will talk about life as it used to be in the town and countryside and you will be able to experience both manor house surroundings and peasant culture. The walk includes a visit to Lillaryd, a rustic farm dating from the 17th century where we can get a picture of what it was like to live and work the land in a country settlement of the time. The traditional country breeds are well suited to this lifestyle. We continue to the old town quarter and look in on the traditional craft workshops.
