1. Malmö Castle
If you are planning city trip to Malmö, you should make sure that you spend enough time at Malmöhuss Castle. The historical building, built in the 16th century, is the oldest preserved Scandinavian fortress from the Swedish Renaissance. Historically, it was one of the most important defensive fortifications in Denmark, to which Malmö still belonged at that time. Today, the castle complex has become one of Malmö's most extraordinary cultural attractions, as it houses several museums within its historic walls.
2. City Hall
Located on the main square, the town hall of Malmö was built in 1546. The façade that we see today was added in the 19th century, when the building was renovated. The Renaissance design of the facade is the work of the architect Helgo Zettervall. The sculptures of Malmö's historic figures, such as Jörgen Kock, Mayor of Malmö in the 16th century, and Frans Suell, Swedish businessman from the 18th century, are also at display here.
3. Lilla Torg
If you're eating out in Malmö, chances are you're going to find yourself on this lovely square in the center of the city. When Lilla Torg comes to life in the summer, there are dozens of restaurants and café terraces surrounded by historic buildings on the square. Lilla Torg is the smaller neighbor to Stortorget, the main square, which was built a little later. Back in the 17th century, this was a location for city residents to purchase at grocery stores, butcher shops and bakeries.
What's going to excite you about Malmö is the amount of greenery in the middle of the area. This park is situated to the west and south of the castle, bordering the moat. Slottsträdgården is a fairly recent project rooted in organic farming practices. There is a mosaic of theme flowers and herb gardens, along with a kitchen garden that grows vegetables sold on site. The park hosts seasonal activities such as the Harvest Festival, the Onion Festival and the high-profile Malmö Flower Show, which takes place in June.
The oldest park in Malmö, built in 1869-70, is separated from the Slottsträdgården by the canal. This land used to be part of the fortifications until the castle had become obsolete as a defensive structure and the area was transformed into a romantic English-style garden. The park is beautiful, with its 120 tree species from three continents, an elegant central fountain and wide paved paths along the canal. Next to the fountain is the 19th-century Grotto (Grottan), which was renovated in the 1980s.
Next door, Malmö's largest square is also the oldest square of the city, dating back to the 1540s. There are several large administrative buildings in the area, and the City Hall is the most prominent one. .
7. Sankt Petri Church
St. Peter's kyrka or simply St. Peter's Church in Malmö is the oldest building in the city and dates from the 14th century. The red brick church was built in Gothic style and is about 105 metres high. Although the medieval frescoes were destroyed during the religious wars in the 16th century, the church still has enough to be on the list of Malmö's best sights. The impressive wooden altar and the restored murals in the chapel are also well worth seeing.
8. Öresund Bridge
Anybody keen on megastructures would want to cross the famous Öresund Bridge, which connects Sweden and Denmark. It is the longest railway and road bridge in Europe, extending for eight kilometers to the man-made island of Peberholm. Here it switches to a tunnel to make the connection to Copenhagen.
Södergatan is the main shopping street and one of the two oldest avenues in town. It predates all city squares, and in 1978 it became Malmö's first pedestrian route. Visit high-quality stores and restaurants, and iconic Swedish department stores such as Åhléns Area.
10. Turning Torso
Located west of the port, this unorthodox tower was designed by the Spanish neo-futurist Santiago Calatrava and, as the name suggests, has a twisting shape. At 190 metres high, Turn Torso is the tallest skyscraper in Scandinavia.
