    Kallbadhus Restaurant (Bjärred)

    Maybe that restaurant is the coolest I ever been. You have to walk through a long long wood gateway (Långa bryggan) over the quiet sea of Öresund. At the end you will find a very small restaurant, where you could eat the finest smoked salmon, and a sauna: one for women, one for men. If your are brave enough, after spending some time in the hot room, you can have a bath!
