With a perimeter of just a mile, Ven is the little big adventure
The island of Ven is the perfect destination for anyone traveling in and around Denmark or southern Sweden. In the middle of the narrow blue sound of Öresund, Ven rises steeply out of the sea and forms a lush plateau with superb views of the Swedish and Danish coast lines.
For those who can make the short ferry ride over to Ven, there is a lot to experience between the beaches, fields and villages. Ven has art and crafts, exquisite food of local and regional produce, museums, small shops, and even its own whiskey (!). And then of course, magnificent nature and nights with a starry sky that has gone to history.

Biking on Ven
Biking is freedom and biking on Ven is even better. In addition, it is a genuine Scanian classic. The yellow bikes you rent just above the ferry port have become something of a signature for Ven. The island is full of hills and slopes so it’s not entirely effortless. Luckily, there are many cafes, sights and hideaways you can pause at and rest at for a while. But usually you make a stop just to enjoy the view.
When the rapeseed blooms
It's a wonderful time when the rapeseed blooms on Ven. The yellow fields are broken against the blue sea and then often continue on the other side of the coast. Color, sound and smell propagates strangely out here in the strait. Winds can carry the sweet rapeseed aroma over the ocean. But the blossom is short. Soon, the flowers withers, and their bales grays and dries for the rest of the summer. Photo: Annika Rundblad/Turistbyrån Landskrona-Ven
St. Ibb's old medieval church
Is St. Ibb's medieval church the most beautifully located church in the country? Hard to tell unless you you've visited them all. But when standing at the churchyard up at the crest a mild summer evening and looking out to the ocean and letting the eye wander south from the spire at Kronberg Castle along the coastlines, you know for sure that really is the case.
