Malmö Sweden is a city small enough to still be friendly and large enough to feature a good choice of cultural attractions for the entire family. A Malmö City Card can be purchased for discounts on entrance fees to attractions, shopping, and provides free parking.
The People’s Park
Malmo is home to Folkets Park (People’s Park), one of Sweden’s most popular destinations for visitors. The park is more than 100 years old and not your ordinary park experience.
It features a strong tradition of entertainment, music, dancing, and is an ideal location to picnic and relax. Kids especially enjoy renting a pair of skates and visiting the ice rink, or playing in the paddling pool, visiting the miniature on-site farm, and it even has a small amusement park.
Möllevång’s Square, also called Möllevångstorget, offers an active multicultural opportunity for the entire family. It’s a large market with a wide variety of foods for a reasonable price along with fruits, flowers, and vegetables.
Restaurants serve foods from around the world, so you can find something even for your picky eater.
The kids will love to visit Malmöhus Castle, the oldest surviving Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. While it has an interesting history as a fortress that protected shipping traffic all the way back to 1434, its present look was acquired in the mid-16th century when the king ordered the building of a modern fortress.
It has been restored and is part of the Malmo Museums and considered part of Sweden’s cultural heritage.
Malmo offers a relaxing laid back culture and offers plenty for families to do together, including a visit to for some homemade ice cream at Lilla Glassfabriken or Slotträdgårdens Café, and if they’d rather have other sweets, Gottelisa is the stop to make.
