Malmo Information Guide

Malmö was founded during the ?rst half of the 1300th century and has been under Danish crown. Malmö became Swedish in 1658 but it took almost 200 years before the integration bore fruit. As an industrial city, Malmö flourished right up until the shipbuilding industry declined in the early 1970’s – with emigration and failing self-con?dence as a consequence. But in recent years, Malmö has lifted itself again – and with a vengeance. In June 2000, the Öresund Bridge reconnected the city with Denmark. The following year, the Housing Exhibition ?nally opened the city up to the waterfront and Europe’s tallest – and perhaps most spectacular – apartment block was built. Turning Torso rises up in the old shipyard district and attracts large numbers of fascinated spectators.

The city has been rejuvenated and revitalized, while immigration is continually breaking new records. There are foundations for the newly-won optimism of Malmö’s residents. Copenhagen is needed less and less. But, just in case you want to go there, “the village” is still there – closer than ever – with three train departures per hour. Parks form a natural element in the city of Malmö. For pick-nicks and slow walks the Kungsparken and Slottsparken are the given places. Pildammsparken o?ers large open areas and two large lakes that attracts a rich bird life.

Head to Möllevångstorget with its open market. In this lively square trade you will ?nd almost any- and everything whilst soaking up the special air of “Möllan”. Those who are hungry will be pleased to hear that this area is the eatery densest meeting place throughout Malmö. Those who are looking for a party can ?nd several clubs with a wide variety of music in the Möllevången area. KB, Babel, Debaser, the Moorish Pavilion and Cuba Café are a few well known examples. The rich variety of restaurants attracts with scents from all the world’s cuisines.

Malmö has a rich cultural life with performances, galleries and museums. In recent years Malmö has built two large Stadiums, Malmö Arena and Swedbankstadion, both of which are relying on large public events, and sport of course! It’s easy to get to the arenas by bus and train. Malmö o?ers proximity to Copenhagen and Oresund Bridge boasts between the two cities. It is one of the largest architectural structures in Europe and it takes less than 15 minutes to cross the 8 km long bridge. Communication is good, with departures every 20 minutes, during the day, all days. Take a day trip and go visit Tivoli and do some shopping in the Danish “byen”(village).
