Malmö

Culturally influenced by years of association with Denmark, Malmö is very different from the rest of Sweden – and proud of it!

 

Many people commute from Malmö to Copenhagen each day, making a strong link between the two cities, and the Öresund bridge is a world-famous architectural testimony to the strong connection. But there’s much more to see…

 

This coastal city offers the best of all worlds: city centre parks, a seaside vibe, lots of culture and eclectic shopping. And it’s all discoverable on foot, by bike, or even by kayak!

 

If you’re starting your city exploration in the centre, you’ll find Lilla Torg (Little Square), a romantic cobblestone square that is home to many cafés, quaint half-timbered houses and craft shops. It’s a popular meeting place in summer, steeped in history with all modern conveniences. If you want more, Stortorget is nearby. The largest and oldest square in Malmö, it was once the largest in Northern Europe. Today it’s more often used for big events such as the Malmöfestivalen.

 

Scandinavia’s biggest festival and a free event, Malmöfestivalen usually takes place in the last week of August and promotes life in the city. Locals and visitors alike are invited to enjoy all types of music, cultural events, and food and drink. Crayfish are particularly popular on the festival menu!  

 

The city of Malmö is world-leading in terms of sustainable development and the Western Harbour is testament to this. Sitting on the shoreline of the Öresund Sound where the Kockum’s shipyard used to be, this formerly run-down area is now a model for sustainable living and working.  The architecture is exciting and adventurous, enabling lifestyles that are relaxed and healthy. You’ll feel the vibe when you travel to, and you’ll also be wowed by the award-winning Turning Torso. It’s the first twisted skyscraper in the world and Scandinavia’s tallest building. In summer, the harbour’s restaurants, bars and cafés are packed with people – we think you’ll like hanging out here too. 

 

The beach at Ribersborg isn’t far away and it’s popular with people of all ages for swimming and sunbathing. Or, if you’re more culturally minded, you can spend a day exploring Malmö Art Museum, the City Museum, the Museum of Natural History, which are all in Malmöhus Castle, the oldest preserved Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. You might also want to explore Moderna Museet Malmö, which is interestingly housed in a disused power station and exhibits contemporary international works of art.

 

Malmö is perhaps Sweden’s most diverse and global city, and you’ll see that on every menu. International food cultures mix with national traditions, tastes and influences to create unique experiences. You can try the Skåne speciality of spettekaka, a cake baked on a spit, enjoy an eel feast known as ålagille, or breakfast on äggakaka, a deliciously thick pancake topped with bacon. If you prefer your dining to be more sophisticated, Malmö’s many European-influenced restaurants serve up deliciously prepared local produce. Or you can get all the ingredients for yourself at Malmö Saluhall food market. Stop for a fika while you’re there!
