Top 10 Things to do in Malmo, Sweden

December 11, 2017 Jasper Kershner

Blending green parks and sandy beaches with a rich culture, history and modern art, Malmö lets you go your own way — literally. Starting in the bustling commercial centre, it’s just a short walk to picturesque Old Town and Malmöhus Castle. From there, you can easily continue to the modern Western Harbour for a perfect snapshot of the Öresund Bridge and Turning Torso. And since Malmö loves food, drinks and good company, you’re never far from fine dining or a proper Swedish Fika.

A good place to stave off the cold. The cafe serves delicious hot Danish lunches. With free coffee and salad. How decent!
The library is stunning. There are also two fantastic children Libraries for under 7 and over 7. How clever to split the ages. There's more than just books but hide out areas to read in and dressing up and a music room for the kids.

Kungsparken

Reviewed By Remy S

The Kungsparken is a lovely little park that is really nice to walk around. I went there today with my girlfriend and we really enjoyed it although it doesn’t take too long to walk around. The scenery was amazing as the small lake was all frozen. Also, just a detail but if you like ducks, we’ll, there are plenty there and they will let you approach them as they don’t seem to be scared of human presence.

This bridge connecting Copenhagen and Malmo is approximately 11 km in length with half above, while the other half beneath the sea. On a clear day one can have a good view of either side of the bridge.

Another one of the many parks in Malmo. Really huge, manicured trees that I thought were quite interesting. Worth checking out and taking photos for Instagram posts!

This is a pretty, hidden little gem for a lovely picknick or stroll in spring or summer. Garden, park and plants, café and a nice jetty on the water. Great for families.

A very quaint little square that really gives you a taste of old Sweden. Lovely cafes and restaurants nearby. Would have loved to have visited this place in warmer days but even in winter, it was nice.

Technology & Maritime Museum

Crawl into a real submarine and see Exhibitions with focus on technology and seafaring. If you like to experiment, the Ideas Planet is an obvious favourite, and in the Boat Playroom all children are invited to play. The Science and Maritime House is part of the Malmö Museer.

Reviewed By onelastfish - Perth, Australia

this is a hidden gem. Some great Exhibitions. Most of the descriptions are in Swedish with only a few in English but this adds to the charm. Was not that crowded when I went there and could stroll through at a leisurely pace. It is surprisingly large.

St. Petri (St. Peter's Church)Malmo TourismArchitectural highlights

Reviewed By kjff - Minneapolis

This still operating 13th century church is rather plain outside (although definitely imposing) but step inside for a glorious space and a fascinating bit of western history. Originally a Catholic church, the Reformation resulted in painting the walls a stark white and the removal of any ornateness But check out the small chapel in the rear to see the decorative wall painting that the Reformation covered up. Then ask the helpful staff the story behind how that chapel escaped the white paint, why there are now a spectacular pulpit and altar, why is one plaque in Danish. Check out the other chapel and small organ. On your way out, look over the wooden plaques listing all the pastors since 1287.
The historic part of town is a five minute walk from the train station. Don't expect to find easy parking. But you will find a terrific central square, a historic City Hall and much more, including dining and coffee.

Malmo City HallMalmo TourismArchitectural highlights

Reviewed By Oleg Y - Belgrade, Serbia

First thing we wanted to see upon our arrival in Malmo, in Sweden, was the City Hall of the capital of the southern region of Sweden. This remarkable edifice is located near the old centre of the city and may boast with several architectural styles, spanning three centuries, from 16th to 19th. It is situated on the main Malmo public square, called Stortoget. Just first started with gothic style and with beautiful red bricked facade, then passed through some restorations and finished in Dutch Renaissance style.
Great spot to see in our beginning of exploration of Malmo, in Sweden.

You'd be hard pressed to even miss this piece of architecture whilst going around Malmo. Since we were cycling, we headed over to the waterfront for a closer look. Sure enough, it was an interesting piece of architecture. But, it was neither very special nor extraordinary.
