Once an important Danish stronghold, Malmö Castle now offers a plethora of things to do, many of which are fantastic rainy day activities. As well as the castle itself, you can look around the Natural History Museum, an authentic U3 submarine and the aquarium.
The oldest market square in the city can be found in the Gamla Staden and is a great place to grab a bite to eat and admire your surroundings. During the warmer months, restaurants line the cobbles with extra tables.
Once part of the castle grounds, this park is now a peaceful place for a romantic stroll. The fountains, canals and grotto add to the whimsical and nostalgic nature.
This architectural masterpiece twists a full 90 degrees on the way up. It may be Scandinavia’s tallest building but, sadly, there is no public access.
This leisure park offers plenty to do and is especially great if you have kids in tow. There are fairground rides, crazy-golf, playgrounds and an ice rink in the winter.
St Peter’s Church
The oldest building in Malmö is a Gothic church that features an admirable wooden altar. The architectural lines on the exterior are common on all Hanseatic churches built around the 14th century.
If you haven’t already made your way to the city via this magnificent feat of human engineering, it’s worth seeing it up close by taking a drive across. Built in 2000, it took five years to complete, is five miles long and cost over 2.5 billion Euros to build. The impressive structure features in the hit TV series The Bridge.
