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.

Really nice place with a lot to be seen, old houses, smithy, windmill, herbals, crops, animals, botanic garden etc. I really enjoyed it but not my feet, also my wife think it was more or less perfect so cannot complain there. Happy wife, happy life....More

Primarily a botanical garden with some old buildings and history of southern Sweden. The signage in English could have been better. It was worth a visit but wouldn't go out of my way to visit.
