Nature

You walk along footpaths through Rövarkulan ravine which contains mature broadleaved woodland. The meandering River Bråån with banks covered in shale enhances the experience. The shale originates from clay particles which sank to the bottom of a sea, 400 million years ago. The thick-shelled river mussel lives in the river and fresh water limpet on the loose patches of shale. Heron fish and white throated dippers dive in the water. There are almost 400 species of ferns and vascular plants in Rövarekulan and droves of spring flowers.  The agricultural plains extend out south of Rövarekulan.

Cultural History

The family seat of Löberöd belonged to distinguished Danish and Swedish nobility. During the 1600s, the first manor house was built. The estate contributed to the railway station in Löberöd in 1866, and it was only then that the local village saw the light of day.
Rövarekulan was a part of the estate and several owners have harboured a special interest in the valley. Here you can find memorial stones from the De la Gardie family and an impressive bridge built by Otto Ramel.
