About Staffanstorp

Closer than close-by

The ”close” concept has become a fashionable word for residential areas wishing to describe how conveniently they are situated. But in actual fact,  in many of these places, “close” means quite some way away.

Staffanstorp is located exactly where it should be. Everyone in the Greater Copenhagen region can get here very quickly. Copenhagen is 30 minutes away. Malmö is 15 minutes away… Lund is a 15 minute bike ride – or ten minutes on the bus.

We’re not saying we are located “close-by”. We’re saying we are a lot closer than that.

Active leisure time

Staffanstorp offers a rich choice of culture, sports and outdoor recreation for all those looking for active leisure time. Our future plans include the making of an even greener and more beautiful Staffanstorp, with more parks, jogging trails and other green spaces.

Some hundred associations occupied with sports, culture, preservation, pensioners, etc. and all open for new members.

A wide choice of recreational activities such as music, bowling, scouting, dog training, mini-racing, riding, shooting etc.

The indoor and open-air swimming baths organise family activities all year round.

Four indoor sports centres in Staffanstorp and Hjärup and several other sports facilities open to all.

A large sports stadium is built in Staffanstorp called Staffansvallen and a large recreation and sports park is planned in Hjärup. Three new multi-sports arenas equipped with synthetic grass are to be built in Staffanstorp and Hjärup.
