Kulturens Östarp is part of the open-air museum Kulturen i Lund. While the Lund museum area is located in the middle of the city and consists of houses that have been rebuilt, the Östarp area extends to historic farm estates.
The stable, windmill, watermill and the manor house: all the buildings still look as they did in the middle of the 19th century. The old cultural landscape is cultivated today just as it was 200 years ago, without electricity and machines but with human resources and working animals. The farm animals are old breeds that are no longer bred in today's agriculture: Blommehöns chickens, Linderödsåsen pigs, Göinge goats, Ringamålakor cattle, Gotland Russ horses, Mellerud rabbits and Blekinge geese life on the estate.
The hilly landscape surrounding the farm is suitable for beautiful walks. Well-maintained hiking trails lead visitors through forests and fields, past farms and cottages. During the summer months, the four-winged half-timbered farm Gamlegård is open for museum visitors. Staff members keep up the tradition by dressing up in traditional costumes and answer any questions at any time. Especially the youngest visitors will find a lot to discover here, and the antique toys bring a lot of joy. And of course, all animals must be welcomed personally!
After visiting the open-air area, you can stop for a bite to eat at the "Östarps Gästis" inn.
