    Öresund Bridge

    by Sjalen Updated Apr 4, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Limhamn is one of the best places if you want to see the Öresund Bridge close up. One of the most famous constructions in Scandinavia, the bridge uniting Sweden and Denmark opened in the year 2000 and is a record breaking bridge in that it has the World's biggest sunk concrete tunnel and its highest free standing pair of pylons. It is also the longest dubbel decker bridge for both cars and trains.

    Berg Monument

    by Sjalen Updated Feb 26, 2007

    Mr R.F. Berg (1843-1907) has probably done more to the wellbeing and shaping of Limhamn than anyone else. In fact he has done so much that he is known as the Limhamn King. Born in Stockholm and with a technical education, I am not sure how he ended up in Malmö but once here he soon became the director of the local Skånska Cement AB which with today's globalism is known all over the World's construction industry as Skanska. A lot of the company history and today's success is in fact due to what was started by Berg who also initiated the Malmö to Limhamn railway and other things to develop the Swedish cement industry focused around Scania. Like many factory directors all over Europe, Berg became known for his generosity when it came to child welfare and social issues, and was also a Tee-totaller. However, at the same time he was also quite a strong man who had a hard time accepting the local trade unions. In the end, he became one of the founding forces of the Swedish Employee Federation. This mix of personality made him friends with all sorts of people and he probably had a big influence in the famous Swedish social model of the following century.

    Ön architecture

    by Sjalen Written Feb 18, 2007

    Ön means "the island" and the name of this artificial island seems a bit unimaginative. Moreover, it is too short to be found easily in the local public transport database! But there is a bus to it :))) And it is a dead easy walk from the centre of Limhamn to Ön, where you can stroll around looking at modern architecture as it has been developed as a residential area for busy, commuting people who can afford to be near the sea. The island also has quite some wildlife in the form of waterfowl and people also come here to fish.

    Lime harbour indeed

    by Sjalen Updated Feb 11, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Limhamn limestone quarry only closed a few years ago and today you can stand at the viewpoint near Limhamn Church and look at what was one of Europe's biggest quarries - equal to 165 football grounds! Heidelberg Cement owns it now and might start a housing development along one side soon but there are also other discussions. Meanwhile, seagulls and other wildlife flock to it and there are quite a few rare plants so those Heidelbergers cannot build just anywhere they'd like. From here and other nearby quarries, the limestone was taken to the fishing harbour and a limeworks factory built there (see next tip).

    Old Limhamn

    by Sjalen Written Feb 11, 2007

    The core of Limhamn is its old parts around the square and down to the harbour. It is nice to stroll around the Scanian cottages here, in the shadow of the old limeworks and talk to the many cats living here. All Swedish blocks have names too and here each block is, not surprisingly, named after various fish.

    Sibbarp Monument

    by Sjalen Written Jan 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Made by famous sculptor Bror Marklund, the Sibbarp Monument reminds me of something other than what it is...but there you go. It is in fact the winning piece in a 1947 competition for a monument in rememberance of all the Danish refugees who were rescued to Malmö during WWII.
