General Information

Sweden's southernmost city and third most populous after Stockholm and Gothenburg is a lively destination. Situated on the edge of the Oresund strait, which separates it from Copenhagen, Denmark, Malmo is a dynamic little metropolis with a lot of inherent charm. Since the completion of the Oresund Bridge, a modern marvel of structural engineering, the city has opened up considerably to the rest of Europe and indeed, the world.

While the tendency in Malmo is to spend a day by way of the Danish capital, the city deserves more time and attention than a mere cursory tour. From epic Malmo Castle, home to the superb Malmo Museum, to the 16th century Radhuset, or city hall, the city is awash with heritage architecture and great attractions. The most recent piece of eye candy is the decidedly twisted HSB Turning Torso, a unique take on the modern skyscraper located in Malmo's harbor.
