Welcome to Bokskogen!
Bokskogen, outside Malmö, is a lovely place to visit the whole year around.
The Right of Public Access is a unique Swedish law that allows everyone to move around freely in the Swedish countryside. However we also need to take responsibility for nature and animal life and show respect towards landowners and other visitors.
How to get here
You can cycle to Torup from Malmö by bicycle on Utflyktsstigen. It is roughly a distance of ten kilometres and starts at Videdalsvägen. From Bara there is a new bicycle path to Torup. On the cycling road to Klågerup there is a new access point to Bokskogen using the banks of the old railwaytracks (stickspåret). This way you reach the birdwatching tower by Dansbanestigen, where there is parking for bicycles. Within the recreational area you are only allowed to cycle on the forest roads.
During certain periods of the year Skånetrafikens bus number 148 goes to Torup. The timetable can be found at skanetrafiken.se
