Malmö: Top things to do and see

Even though Malmö spreads the flair of being a small town, Malmö actually is the third biggest city of Sweden. Located in the South of the country, Malmö definitely is worth a visit. If you do so, here are some inspirations for things to do and see in Malmö!

  1. Cross the Oresund Bridge

Due to its location, it is very easy to reach Malmö when coming from Copenhagen by train via the so-called Oresund Bridge which connects Denmark and Sweden.

Whether you cross the bridge or just drive out to see it, it is impressive and well worth the effort.

  1. Spend some time at Lilla Torg

Lilla Torg is one of the busiest corners of Malmö. As being a historical market square, locals and tourists alike can buy local specialties.

Moreover, you can dip into one of many restaurants and enjoy local cuisine.

  1. Admire St. Peter’s Church

Unlike many other cities we’ve recently visited, churches are not the main buildings which excel Malmö.

However, St. Peter’s Church is worth admiring! As construction works started back in the 14th century and it is thus built in a Gothic style, St. Peter’s Church may be a highlight to look at.

  1. Special buildings in Malmö

But St. Peter’s Church is by far not the only impressive building Malmö has to show you. One of the others is the so-called Turning Torso. Moreover, the Stadsbiblioteket Malmö waits for you!

Not to forget about the Opera

And the Malmö Konsthall and the Malmö Börshus!

  1. Stroll around in Kungsparken

Finding a park within a city and then strolling around in it is always awesome, whether it is just to escape the buzz of the city or just to spend some time in nature.

  1. Find public art and statues

Believe me, there are many statues and art monuments spread throughout Malmö!

  1. Take a photo of the City Hall

Malmö’s City Hall is probably one of the most beautiful buildings in the city. This does not mean that others are an architectural catastrophe, but simply that this one is extraordinarily lovely.

When you discover the City Hall, be sure to remember to take a photo. You will get a great perspective from the Stortogret Square (= The great square) right in front of it.

  1. Get an impression of the Central Station

Most probably the point to start and end your journey to Malmö. So last but not least, here’s a picture of that one as well.

I hope you enjoy your trip to and time in Malmö!

  1. I visited Malmö last year whilst in Copenhagen, the only afternoon I have ever spent in Sweden! It felt like a nice place, the Kungsparken in particular was great and I enjoyed walking around it.
