From Malmö, you either go through Hässleholm, which is the shortest way, and if nothing unexpected happens, this is also the fastest way, and by far the most beautiful.

Or you can take highway E4 past Helsingborg and Markaryd – it is a little bit further to go, but sometimes it is faster than the above mentioned.

If you by ferry from Helsingør to Helsingborg, you should take the E4 past Markaryd.
