Favorite thing: Take a sightseeing tour on public transport by local bus no. 20 (Ringlinjen). The bus serves a round tour through Malmo city which lasts about 50 mins. The buses leave from the train station and a single ticket is only 15 SEK (about 1,60 EURO).
Malmö Tourist Board is situated in Central Railway station. They can help you with accommodation and general tourist information.

This tip is only good if you understand Swedish. That's why I'll write the next in Norwegian (Follow the logic..)
På visse steder i Malmö har du muligheten til å få höre en guide fortelle deg om plassen du står på. Du ringer et telefonnummer, og får opplest en tekst om plassen. Det eneste du må vite på forhånd er telefonnummeret du skal ringe og plassens kode. Enkelte vil nok også vite at det koster nesten 10 svenske kroner per samtal.
Tjenesten fungerer ikke med kontantkort eller ikke-svenske abonnement.
Fondest memory: Internettadressen er: www.instantinfotainment.se

Sweden, like Denmark and the UK, is part of the EU, but has not yet accepted the Euro as its form of currency. Therefore, when in Sweden, you will use the Kronor.
Like the rest of Western Europe, ATMs are plentiful and you can always use your American credit card at restaurants and shops.
