Adventure for the whole family

Experience Trelleborg together with the children

Trelleborg and the surrounding area is an exciting area to experience together with the children. Both big and small find fun things to do and discover. Maybe you will find your own gold nuggets and can tip us, otherwise we have collected fun things to discover below.


The Viking area Trelleborgen is located almost in the middle of Trelleborg’s city center and has a café, museum and shop that are open in summer. The rest of the year you can visit the outdoor area and read exciting Viking facts on the signs. In the ponds outside the fortress, there are also frogs to look for! Feel free to bring a picnic if the weather is here!
