How to Spend 1 Day in Malmö

How to Spend 1 Day in Malmö

Though often skipped in favor of Copenhagen—its better-known neighbor on the other end of the Öresund Bridge—Malmö shouldn’t be overlooked. Sweden’s third-largest city has a charming historic center, a stylishly modern waterfront, and one of the country’s best food scenes. Whether you are visiting on a day trip or spending the night, here’s how to make the most of one day in Malmö.

Morning: See the Sights

Compact Malmö is best explored on foot, and a guided walking tour in the morning can introduce you to the city’s most important attractions and help you get your bearings. Tours typically visit St. Petri Church, the Western Harbor, and Malmöhus Castle, as well as some lesser-known parts of the city. Alternatively, you can zip around Malmö like a local by joining a bicycle tour. Another, less energetic option is a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour, which has the added benefit of allowing you to create your own itinerary and explore at your own pace.

Afternoon: Explore the Food Scene

Get a taste of Malmö and Skåne county’s culinary heritage on a food walk. These foodie tours allow guests to sample typical Swedish fare, such as pickled herring, cloudberry jam, smoked and cured salmon, and Scanian cured ham, as well as modern artisanal products including charcuterie, chocolate, ice cream, and some examples of the famed New Nordic cuisine. Some food tours also emphasize the impact of the city’s rich diversity on its food scene by introducing you to the best Middle Eastern eateries, for example, and letting you try everything from falafel to homemade Greek tzatziki. 

Night: Enjoy the Nightlife

Home to a youthful and creative population, Malmö boasts an exciting nightlife scene. Some of the most popular spots in town are Babel, a nightclub housed in a former church, and Cuba Café, known for its mojitos and salsa music. If you are traveling with younger visitors or not interested in clubs and bars, there are also fun escape-room experiences on offer. For those visiting during the summer months, a great option is picnicking in Folkets Park (which often hosts live entertainment during summer) or taking a dip in Ribersborg open-air bath on the waterfront.
