In The footsteps of Wallander

Follow in the footsteps of Detective Inspector Kurt Wallander around Ystad. .

Explore the cobbled streets along which Wallander hurries on the way to his next case, enjoy a cup of coffee at Fridolfs konditori or visit his workplace at the police station. Wallander locations are spread throughout the city for anyone who enjoys following the inspector's cases. If you were not a fan, you would never know they were there. As these locations feature in the books and the films, you will feel right at home

The Wallander package offers an opportunity to get that little bit closer to Wallander. The package includes an overnight stay at one of his favourite hotels, dinner at one of the restaurants he frequents, and a cup of coffee at Fridolfs konditori, which will be familiar to Wallander fans the world over. Our Wallander package also includes entry to Cineteket, Ystad's film museum, during their normal opening hours. Cineteket is open almost every day of the year. Cineteket is home to various exhibitions, including a photo exhibition, a fine collection of Wallander props and a cinema..

Here you can also find film-themed souvenirs, films, posters and a number of other excellent mementos of your visit to Wallander's home town. There is also a small film café. As you relax with a coffee, keep your eyes open for actors on their way to shoot a new film at Ystad Studios right next door to Cineteket. .

During the summer months you can book a Wallander tour aboard the Ystad Volunteer Fire Brigade's vintage fire engine.

Author Henning Mankell's creation has been drawing visitors from around the world to Ystad since the first book was published in 1991. Twenty-two years on, there are 11 books in the series and more than 50 films featuring Wallander.
