This trail takes you along paths and streets. You walk through the leafy town center of Landskrona and out towards the open agricultural landscape. Look out for the white island of Gipsön, made from by-product gypsum from the artificial fertilizer factory. Deviation from the trail and take a trip to the island of Ven. The view becomes your constant companion and backafall, rose mallow and almost completely car-free roads are the island's sign. At Saxån there are grazed meadows with salt-resistant plants such as beach sand, salt-dried and shoreline. The area has extremely good birds and in the river there are giant drills. The river is longer than you can imagine, the river continues 5-6 km out in the Sound. Continue through Häljarp and on forest roads through the Saxtorp forest. Here you will find blueberries, lingonberries and hot flowers. In landscaped ponds there is the rare onion frog. The stage ends in the hiking area Järavallen. There is pasture, pine forest, lakes and views of the Sound. It has been named after the shoreline that runs along the coast, and which was created 4000-7000 years ago. The crown of the country - Erik of Pomerania, king of Denmark-Norway-Sweden, had great plans when he gave the fishing village Södra town rights in 1413 the new name Landskrona. The good location required good defense, which is evident when you walk through the city. Set up guns, earthquakes, moats and the Citadel fortress. An artificial island with fort provided shelter for the harbor. Below the ramparts is Sweden's oldest colony area, from the end of the 19th century. The first cultivation lots were distributed to working men and seals at the Citadel. The lotteries became popular and the inner moat was quickly taken by the city's citizens. Saxtorps forest is Landskrona's largest forest and was planted as a protective forest to prevent flying sand. Here are leftovers for a farm of seaweed, as there was neither wood nor stone to build with.

Lots and lots of road walking Some nice forest areas Ends by a nice lake
