Strandhems Bunker – Chill-out spot

There are bunkers spread along most of Scania’s coast. You can see them popping up now and then from Båstad down to Ystad and beyond. They are reminiscent of the Second World War of course. Germany was occupying Denmark and Norway, so Sweden felt a bit vulnerable. Most of them are not very noticeable, just a concrete mound sticking out of the ground and often covered with grass.

So, what is so special about the one in Strandhem? The village, although itself not officially part of Malmö, functions really as a city suburb. Most of the people who live there work either in Malmö or Copenhagen. There are some bus connections, but of course everyone has a car, as suburbanites do. Some actually just own a summer house there.

So, first of all, you have a lovely walking/cycling path, but also, because there is no beach in a traditional sense, there are not that many people around even on the hottest day of the summer. You have peace and quiet, you just need to be careful with the “cow bombs”, if you catch my drift. Just watch where you put your blanket and enjoy the amazing view.
