Two women and a toddler are walking towards the water front. They are in a meadow. In the distance, a couple of people are sitting on a bench with a table in front of it. It is summer.

The depth of the navigable channel and the harbour is 1.5–2.5 metres, but sand and seaweed drift and low tide can occur, which means that the exact depth cannot be guaranteed.

When in Europe don't miss Skurup


At the Skurup Information Centre, we sell T-shirts sporting the logo "When in Europe don’t miss Skurup". The slogan was invented in 1967 by Bengt Englund, who was a teacher at Skurups folkhögskola, the independent adult education college of Skurup. It is not our official municipal slogan, but we like to use it.
