Culture/Sightseeing

If you are taking a short break in Copenhagen in Denmark it is a simple train journey to Malmo in Sweden. You cross the Oresund Bridge made famous in the TV drama “The Bridge”. We did just that, and enjoyed exploring this attractive city. The journey only takes 35 minutes. First of all, because you are travelling between countries you mustn’t forget to take your passport. Another thing is to make sure you take your credit card. My partner made the mistake of buying some Swedish Krona before leaving the UK. All the shops, cafes and restaurants only accept payment via cards!

Malmo has both historical buildings and modern architecture. The main large square is Stortorget with a lot of statues and old buildings such as the Radhus or Town Hall. From there it is a short walk to Lilla Torg a small market square with 16th century buildings. Many of these are restaurants with others being artisanal and craft shops. We spent time browsing the design items. These picturesque houses are painted in bright colours. There is also Malmohus Castle and the 14th century church of St Petri with its medieval frescos. One popular museum is the Disgusting Food museum – although we didn’t go in. We did however visit the harbour area with its red and white striped lighthouse. A blend of old and new.

i can recommend a day trip to Malmo with its colourful buildings and the people watching potential.
