Malmo is the former Danish province of Scania's largest city, and today the third largest city of Sweden. The municipality has a population of around 305,000 in the municipalty, and around 650,000 in the metropolitan area. It's a port city located in the province of Skåne on the southern tip of the country.
Copenhagen Airport, located 24 kilometres from the city centre, is served by a wide selection of airlines. There is one daily direct bus by Gråhundbus which coincides with Ryanair schedules.
Malmö is also served by Malmö Sturup Airport. If you get to the Malmö Airport, you'll have to take the bus shuttle service to downtown Malmö, but first check the schedules at Flygbussarna's homepage because on Saturday afternoons they don't have many buses.
There are several train stations in Malmö, the Main Station being the largest. Trains to Copenhagen depart from Malmö Centralstation, Triangeln and Hylle. Regional trains always pass or depart from Malmö C, Triangeln and Hyllie. Depending on direction and train type they may call at Burlöv, Svågertorp and Oxie.
If you don't take the train across the bridge (and tunnel), you can drive for yourself. It is a pay bridge, where you pay on the Swedish side regardless if you are arriving from Denmark or departing Sweden. The view is much less obstructed if you choose to go by car as compared to train.
Gråhundbus, Swebus, GoByBus and Eurolines have routes to Copenhagen and other places. To Copenhagen the buses take longer (about an hour) but are cheaper than the train, especially for day trips.
Malmö is best experienced by bicycle, the city is interlaced with lots of bicycle roads. Swedish law requires bicycles to use a front and back light after dark, however this law is rarely enforced.
Public transport is good and organized by Skånetrafiken, that run green buses to get around town and yellow intercity busses to and from surrounding cities. Many of the local bus lines run late into the night, but not all of them, so make sure to check your busses schedule if you plan on staying out late.
What to see
At the heart of Malmö lie three squares, called Gustav Adolf's Square, the Big Square and the Little Square. Stortorget and Lilla Torg are directly connected at one corner, and a pedestrians only shopping street connects them with Gustav Adolfs torg.
The Little Square is the place for socializing and dining, with various restaurants having outdoor tables around the edge of the square.
Gustav Adolfs torg is surrounded on three sides by buildings containing shops. At the center of the square is a bus platform. A cemetery lies at the south side of the square, through which one can reach Slottsparken, a beautiful park that surrounds Malmöhus.
Technology and Maritime Museum is located west of the castle. The largest section of the museum is devoted to transport, in particular aviation, and there are lots of cut-away models, including the entire front end and cockpit of a Vickers Viscount.
Castle Garden located south of the castle, within Kungsparken. This is one of the city's newest amenities and is an organic community garden, open throughout the year. There are eight themed gardens and a potager.
Turning Torso, completed in 2005, is at 190 m the tallest building in Scandinavia. The building is located in one of the newest, and most expensive, areas of Malmö, and contains a lot of modern architecture and upscale restaurants.
Gamla Väster, between Lilla Torget and Malmöhus, is a quiet and sophisticated part of town with lots of galleries, design shops and restaurants. This is also one of the oldest parts of Malmö, and is a recommended visit for those who wish to see some of Malmös oldest architecture.
Davidshallstorg is a square with design shops, clothes stores and restaurants. The atmosphere here is posh, so the vibe is very different from Möllevångstorget's. There are similar shops on the nearby parts of Davidshallsgatan.
Koggmuseet lets you set foot on two cog ships built after originals from the middle ages.
Go to the Pildammsparken. Sunbathe or have a picnic.
Don't miss Malmöfestivalen - a free festival that takes place for eight days every year in August, with lots of cultural and culinary experiences.
Swim and sunbathe on the two-kilometre sandy beach Ribersborgsstranden. In the winter you can enjoy ice swimming, ideally combined with Kallbadhuset's sauna with panoramic view of Öresund.
Experience the multicultural area around Möllevångstorget. Here you can find exotic shops selling Asian and Middle Eastern food stuffs and a wide selection of pubs and bars. In the mornings there is also an open market where you can buy fresh fruit and vegetables.
The flat landscape of Skåne is ideal for golf. Around Malmö there are quite a few good courses and a new 36 holes PGA standard course being built.
Malmö Arena hosts various international concerts as well as the hockey team Malmö Redhawks (with the capacity of 13 000 specators), currently playing in the Swedish second division Allsvenskan.
If you arrive around Christmas, look out for pepparkakor, literally pepper cookies, but flavoured with cinnamon, ginger, molasses and cloves.
Localy, Malmö is sometimes refered to as "Falafelstaden" or Falafel city. This is because of the many vendors selling falafel throughout the city but especially around Bergsgata.
