Driving from Copenhagen- would like scenic drive please!

We are venturing out of Copenhagen for a day trip into Sweden and would love advice where to go for a scenic drive. Or pretty places to see. We will have a GPS. Thank you!

1. Re: Driving from Copenhagen- would like scenic drive please!

I would take a trip around Skane, southernmost county in Sweden. Quite a lot of nice places there. Go along the southern coast through Trelleborg, stop at Ystad (medieval city with lots charm), further towards Simrishamn (national park Stenshuvud close by) and then perhaps back inland. Lots of castles (mostly private though) on the way. Perhaps check out Lund late in the day, old university city with famous old cathedral.

As an alternative you could go north from Malmö along the coast and stop at Helsingborg or the Kullen peninsula (steep cliffs, quaint small town - Mölle) and then take the ferry Helsingborg-Helsingör back to Denmark. This takes only 20 minutes but makes it possible to see the Danish coastline down to Copenhagen (for example famous modern art museum, Louisiana, close to Helsingör).
