In the scenic northeastern corner of Skåne, the city of Kristianstad offers an interesting 400-year-old historical environment to get to know in depth. Here you can cycle along miles of sandy beaches and pine forests and combining culinary experiences with Vattenriket's beautiful sights.
About 2 km from the city's well-preserved city center is Anna's hotel, a hotel created with care for hotel guests and without any standard solutions. Here in the beautifully decorated rooms you sleep well in comfortable beds, bedded with fluffy down comforters and cool sheets of finest cotton. All rooms are en suite with shower and toilet and include free Wi-Fi. Anna's hotel is located next to the Lingenäset Nature Reserve, which is a popular area that is easy to reach both by bike and on foot, and here there are plenty of bird towers and places to stay and barbecue. The hotel is well known for its personal hospitality, and has won several fine awards over the years.
Experience the Coast and Vattenriket's Biosphere Reserve
The scenic surroundings around Kristianstad invite you to enjoy pleasant bike rides. In the summer months, the area around Kristianstad is a summer paradise with salt-sprayed baths and long days on the miles of beaches along the Gulf of Hanö. At other times of the year, the unspoilt beaches invite calm reflection and all the color changes of the forest are a work of art in themselves. Along the coast you can also cycle and visit genuine eel fishing environments that have a history quite unique in their kind.
In the area around Kristianstad, a unique expansive landscape spreads out where mountain acid, blue fire and heather flowers paint red, blue and yellow fields in the lean sandy fields. If you cycle north, you will instead be greeted by apple orchards, glittering lakes and beech forests in a hilly landscape.

Cycle along with embankments
In Skåne there are plenty of prepared embankment's which make it easy to get through the landscape. Most people can and appreciate the trip around Råbelövssjön which is 22 km long. Enjoy a car-free bike ride on the embankment, which is only 300 meters from the hotel, north along the eastern side of Röbelövssjön. Stop at the bathing places in Balsby and Österslöv and then cycle on the gravel road to idyllic Ekestad. Here the tour goes through apple orchards and pasture gardens and continues with Balsberget on one side and the glittering lake on the other.
With a little better fitness you can go on a slightly longer trip of 55km. Then you continue on the embankment north in the lake landscape between Röbelövssjön, Oppmannasjön and Ivösjön. In Arkelstorp, the tour turns south towards Lake Oppmannas on small gravel roads. Stop in and enjoy the great views of Söndrabyn! Then cycle on between farms and fruit farms up to Barum. From here you can make a detour to Ivö by ferry. From Barum, the tour continues on the road to Bäckaskogsssslott, where you turn back to Kristianstad.
A popular bike excursion is also to walk up to Immeln (25km) where you park your bikes and canoe for a few hours.
