Malmö is a charming Southern Swedish city and, together with Copenhagen, it forms the most densely populated area in Scandinavia. They share a long history since Malmö was founded as a part of Denmark, but after 400 years came under Sweden’s control. Today you find Malmö completely renewed, young looking and vibrant, with a great focus on sustainable development.

Simon recommends

The bridge between Denmark and Sweden is definitely an attraction I would recommend experiencing. Since it was built, Malmö has had new inspiration and now you’ll find Scandinavia’s oldest renaissance castle next to the new, hip and sustainable district packed with new technology there.

Key Facts


Malmö Festivals

During spring and summer, there are a lot of festivals and open-air concerts in the city centre. Often, they will not charge you for entry.

Malmö Bike Hire

Malmø is rated the seventh most cycle-friendly city in the world, and we personally think that its flat topography makes bike trips suitable for all ages.

Malmö Food & Drink

Malmö can impress even experienced travellers with its gastronomic diversity. The city is full of cafés and restaurants, whereas you can choose any cuisine imaginable. Why not to try an ice cream by Lilla Glassfabrikken or have a quiet dinner at the excellent Vollmers restaurant?

Kungsparken and Slottsparken

Kungsparken and Slottsparken, two parks situated close to the city centre and separated by the castle moat, have a lot of beautiful paths, channels, bridges and lakes with a large amount of ducks, Canada geese, and swans. You can feed the birdlife (they like white bread) or just sit on any of the numerous benches and relax.

St. Peter’s Church

St. Peter’s Church (St.Petri) is located just a few steps from the City Hall. The oldest building in Malmo, the interior of which is just marvellous, will wow anyone with its particular highlight — a 100-metre high tower. There are so many concerts taking places that you have a pretty good chance of enjoying its fantastic acoustics.

Malmö City Centre

The city centre, with lots of old heritage buildings around the town square (Stortorget), is definitely worth a walk. There are many shops and lovely cafés where you can sit and enjoy a sunny day.

Scandic Malmø City

The Scandic Malmø City and Scandic Triangeln share a slim and modern design, great locations and gorgeous views over the city. Travellers with kids would appreciate the little kitchens in Scandic Malmø’s city rooms, where you can warm snacks up or make your own light dishes.

Renaissance Hotel

The Renaissance Hotel is about as central as you can get: just a minute’s walk from Lilla Torget. It features quite spacious rooms with those dreamy-soft Marriott beds, an overall high standard of service, excellent breakfasts, and very friendly staff. The hotel is surrounded by a large number of good restaurants. If you come with a car, consider parking outside the hotel, because the underground hotel parking area has limited space.
