Kävlinge River (Kävlingeån in Swedish, but also known as Lödde å between the town of Kävlinge and the mouth near Löddeköpinge) is the name of a small river on the flat lands of Scania in southern Sweden.

It starts at the lake Vombsjön and ends in the Öresund strait.[1] The river is only 50 km long but played an important role in the Battle of Lund in 1676.
