How to Spend 3 Days in Malmö

How to Spend 3 Days in Malmö

With three days in Malmö, you have plenty of time to soak up the city’s atmosphere, see the historic sights, take a bite out of the food scene, and journey deeper into the surrounding Skåne region. Here are a few ideas for making the most of three days in Sweden’s third-largest city.

Day 1: Explore the City

Spend your first morning in Malmö getting your bearings on a small-group walking or bicycle tour to historic Malmöhus Castle and modern Western Harbor. To customize the itinerary and explore at your own pace, opt for a private tour or a hop-on-hop-off-bus tour. In the afternoon, head for Ribersborg Beach to lay out on the sand or take a dip in Ribersborgs Kallbadhus, an open-air public bath much-loved by locals. The setting offers great views of the Turning Torso tower building and across the water to Copenhagen. From there it’s a short walk back into the town center, where you can take your pick of restaurants then dip into a pub for a glass of Swedish beer, cider, or aquavit.

Day 2: Dive Into the Food Scene

Find out why Malmö is said to be one of Sweden’s best food cities with a walking tour focused on food culture, sampling traditional fare, New Nordic cuisine, and international eats (Malmö is particularly known for its many falafel vendors). Alternatively, explore independently by hitting up food markets such as Saluhall, which sells everything from artisanal sausages to small-batch ice cream, and international Möllevångstorget. Afterward, take a seat at one of the city’s best restaurants, which range from Michelin-starred fine dining to relaxed bistros.

Day 3: See More Skåne

Malmö’s location offers easy access to the surrounding countryside of the Skåne region. Take a train to the university city of Lund, founded by Vikings more than 1,000 years ago, and see several monumental rune stones and medieval Lund cathedral. Alternatively, fans of Swedish crime writer Henning Mankell may opt to take a bus to Ystad, home of the fictional Inspector Wallander. Another fun activity is watercycling on the lakes surrounding Ystad; a guided tour provides all the gear and instruction. Back in the city, round off your trip by checking out Malmö’s nightlife scene. You’ll find lots of bars and clubs in the colorful Mollan district, including such local favorites as Babel, a nightclub housed in a former church, and the live music venue Kulturbolaget.
