-Asian Qigong temple

Yangtorp, is a 12.000 m2 large Qigong temple with hotel and spa in Asian style with gardens and Buddhist sculptures, situated in the small village Jönstorp (hence the name Yangtorp) in the municipality of Hörby in the middle of Skåne. Yangtorp was founded by Master Marcus Bongart in 1998 and Anni-Frid from ABBA was once involved in the project. The building complex stood unfinished and empty for years due to financial problems, leaving the place to plunderers, but it is since the year 2000 complete and in business. The complex is very beautiful and impressive and feels out of place in the Scanian landscape, in a good way. Yangtorp is considered a freetown for people who want to relax from the modern world. They offer Qigong courses and yoga and has a Chinese health center. The hotel has 34 rooms and suites, a restaurant (Guan Gu), a shop, conference rooms and a teahouse. The gardens can be visited for 75kr but much can also be seen from the parking lot; the structure, temples, pavlions and Buddha sculpture, dragons and lakes. The interior of the hotel is in Asian feng sui (balance) style. Cats and cows are also around in the area. The entrance is called the Shaolin Gate. Yangtorp is situated in the middle of a forest so it can be a bit tricky to find.

-renaissance castle and gardens

Skarhults slott (Skarhult Castle)
is a castle in Eslöv municipality, East of Lund, in the middle of the Skåne (Scania) province, that was Danish at the time for construction around the 1560s. The castle is built in beautiful red-brick renaissance style and is surrounded by beautiful gardens and a the small river Bråån flows through the garden. At the site was once the medieval village of Skarhult. Until 1624 the castle belonged to the Rosensparre family. Later the Ruud and Trolle families owned it. When Scania (Skåne) became a Swedish province in 1658, it was bought by the Swedish count Pontus Fredrik De la Gardie and financed by his wife Beata Elisabet von Königsmarck. Later owners include Erik Brahe, Magnus Fredrik Brahe, King Karl XIV Johan, King Oscar I and at last by Jules von Schwerin. Today it is still owned by the Schwerin family, Carl Johan and Alexandra von Schwerin. Exhibitions are held in the annex buildings. The valley Skarhultsdalen surround the castle, where you see many wind power stations.
