Quietly unassuming and tucked away in Eslöv is this quaint little museum that is well worth a day trip. It's a large family run collection of all sorts of bits and pieces, but what sets it apart are the model trains. Amazing for kids both big and little!

Under the unassuming name of "Eslövs Toy Museum" hides a pearl of fun for big and small kids. The private collection is both impressive and entertaining to browse. There are thousands of tin soldiers, 300+ smurfs and hundreds of lego kits. And that's just scratching the surface of the collection. But the crown jewel, and what kept us there for a good two hours, is the running model railways. What must be dozens of meters of it fills the majority of the museum and there are countless little details to look at. Highly recommend a visit to the museum.

Incredible collection of toys from all aspects of the toyiverse. The building the museum is housed in needs some major renovation, but apart from that the whole museum is really impressive and well maintained.

Packed full of amazing trains, Lego kits and toys from the last 50 years or so. The family who own and run the museum are very welcoming - well worth a visit!

Cháteau Comtal

The Château Comtal (Count’s Castle) is a medieval castle within the Cité of Carcassonne, the largest city in Europe with its city walls still intact. The Château Comtal has a strong claim to be called a 'Cathar Castle'. When the Catholic Crusader army arrived in 1209 they first attacked Raymond-Roger Trencavel's castrum at Bèziers and then moved on to his main stronghold at Carcassonne.

The castle with rectangular shape is separated from the city by a deep ditch and defended by two barbicans. There are six towers curtain walls.

The castle was restored in 1853 by the architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. It was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1997.
