Eslöv

Population: 16 500 (metro 31 000)
Year: 2010

Eslöv is situated  in the inland of Skåne some km northeast of Malmö and Lund. Since 2005 this small town is considered part of Greater Malmö. Eslöv has been named “Sweden’s most boring city” in a Swedish TV show by the TV personality Lasse Homqvist and the title is for many Swedes associated with Eslöv. (Holmqvist later told that he didn’t remember why he said that and that he actually meant Landskrona.) It is a bit rough on the edges and has no outstanding landmarks, but it actually looks ok and has some nice buildings.


Trolleholm and Trollenäs Slott are 2 castles just outside Eslöv.

Hotel Sten Stensson Sten, the grand hotel from 1993, located at Stora Torg has unfortunately fallen a bit into decay. It is considered the nicest building in Eslöv and summertime there are fountains in front of the building. It has Eslöv’s largest nightclub.

Eslöv reminds a bit of small towns in America.

Medborgarhuset (municipal building) from 1957 by the famous architect Hans Asplund.

Stora Torg has no significant buildings except for the hotel where this photo is taken from.

The sculpture “Snäckfågel” (shell bird) by Eric Grate at Stora Torg.

Eslöv’s railway station from 1914. Eslöv is a real railway community.

A very nice municipal building that stand out in Eslöv.

The same building and the church.

This jugend building belongs to Studieförbundet Vuxenskolan.

Lagerhuset is Eslöv’s only highrise. This picture doesn’t do it justice though, it is a pretty unusual red building, a former warehouse from 1918. It is Sweden’s tallest wooden highrise, 10 floors and 31 meter.

Eslövs kyrka is a neo gothic church from 1891, drawn by Carl Möller. It is the city’s tallest building.

Malmöhusen at Joel Sallius Park.

Easter decorations at a store in central Eslöv.

The old water tower from 1905 is situated a few quarters from the city center.

The countryside, but modern atrium of Sten Stensson Sten. The hotel is named after a role model from Eslöv.

An aquarium inside Hotel Stensson.
