    Then It Was Time To Head Back To Copenhagen

    by johngayton Updated Mar 19, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Having withdrawn 1000 SEK from the ATM when I arrived I'd decided that once it was spent it would be time to head back to CPH - my last beer at Bullen left me with about 50 Crowns which I reckoned would be about what I'd need for a swift schnapps if I had to wait for my train.

    The journey back took me up the main shopping street and over the quaint little bridge (both pictured). Then when I got to the station I found there was a train just about to leave - well there was no point in catching that one as I still had some small money to spend and so I headed for the station bar. Here I enquired how much a Jaegermeister would cost. The barman asked whether I wanted a small one or a large one and when I asked how much the large one was he replied "50". I checked my change and found I had enough and so ordered a large one. He then asked me for 74 SEK which had me confused until we both realised that he'd though that my "How Much?" question had been about the quantity.

    "No problems, my bad!" He exclaimed. We settled for all the money in my pocket, he rang through the till a single measure and I got the large measure anyway.

    Good way to end what was a very pleasant (even if not cheap) day out.

    Wandering The Squares - #3 Gustav Adolf Torg

    by johngayton Written Mar 14, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Whilst this is still a very pleasant square to sit awhile it is, with its main bus terminus, a much more utilitarian space than Lilla Torg or Stortorget. It is though still quirky and I just love this Christmas-presented tree. This is also where the pic of the fountain on my introduction page was taken.

    Useful too is that this is the location of the excellent Bishop's Arms pub - of which more later.

    Take A Wander Around The Docks

    by johngayton Written Mar 14, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Being one for just randomly wandering my first experience of the city was the dock area to the west of Central Station. This area has undergone serious redevelopement in recent years with a mix of renovated old buildings and modern new waterside apartments which coexist with what is still a working dockland.

    This used to be a major shipbuilding city but these days most of the docks' activity is as a car transportation centre and as a mooring for pleasure cruisers.

    On the day of my visit the area was almost deserted and despite being a grey day the light was good and so here's a few pics from my tour.

    For more information on the dockside developements use the link below:

    The Washed Away House

    by antistar Written Jan 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I arrived in Malmo shortly after some of the worst storms in Sweden's history had struck the south coast, washing away many homes along the coast. So when I saw the red walled building pitched into the harbour waters behind the castle, I assumed it must have been a result of these horrendous storms. I even posted a facebook update about it.

    It seems that the building is a permanent fixture, but I know no more about it.

    Old Town

    by antistar Written Jan 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In the area south of the station, and West of the main square of Stortorget, there is the old town (Gamla Staden). It's a pleasant area filled with bars, restaurants and some very fine old houses. Some of these include the famous and cute little one storey houses which barely look big enough to house one lonely fisherman. Examples of these can be found on streets like Jons Filsgatan.

    Jörgen Kock's House

    by antistar Written Jan 11, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A former mayor and master of the mint, Jörgen Kock led Malmo through one of its most successful and affluent times. His grand house, from the early 16th century, still stands today, just off the main square. One of its defining features is a statue of Madonna on the north corner.

    Flensburg House

    by antistar Written Jan 9, 2012

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    One of the oldest buildings in Malmo, the Flensburg House was once believed to be a monastery, and even once was called that. Instead it is a wealthy merchant house, built in the 16th century with an elegant facade and steeped in layers of red/white bricks.

    Gustav Adolf's Square

    by antistar Written Jan 9, 2012

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Gustav Adolf's Square speaks to a short and easily forgotten part of Malmo's history - a time when it was capital of Sweden. During that year, King Gustav IV Adolf made Malmo the capital city. It was a last ditch attempt to save his monarchy, though, and shortly afterwards he was deposed. The square also used to have traces of another part of Malmo's history - trams. Until 1990 there were tracks still visible in the square.

    Mälarbron

    by penny_g Updated Jul 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    "The bridge of the painters" is situated centrally, close to the Central station and is one of the numerous bridges of this kind in Malmö. You will not find any information on it on the web, but this is still good to picture for memorising it, while in Malmö.

    Malmö Centralstationen - Central Railway Station

    by penny_g Updated Jul 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Centralstationen in Malmö is Sweden's third largest station. Every day, more than 45 000 people are visiting it and about 350 trains depart or arrive. From Malmö Central depart domestic and international trains to major cities like London, Beijing, Berlin and Copenhagen. There are also plenty of regional connections to towns like Angelholm, Kristianstad, Karlskrona, Kalmar and Simrishamn. Trains to Copenhagen and Elsinore depart every twenty minutes through the Öresund bridge-tunnel. I can guarantee you that this trip is quite an experience.

    Central Station consists of two buildings: the Central Hall, which formerly was known as "the platform hall," serves as the station's main room. Green Hall is the station's waiting room, it was named after the room characteristic bright green brick walls. Here you will find among other things, Forex, Tourist, Espresso House and the restaurant O `Leary. The architect Folke Zettervall was responsible for the design.

    Inre Hamnen

    by penny_g Updated Jul 1, 2011

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Inre hamnen or the Inner Harbour will be your first stop if you arrive by bus from Copenhagen or Gothenburg.

    This is the oldest part of Malmö Harbour. Skeppsbron (bron stands for bridge) was the outgoing point for passenger's traffic to Copenhagen. This was the case until the official opening of the Öresund connection between both cities in 2011. The central railway station and the Slagthuset are located at the Inre Hamnen.

    Enjoy the octagonal lighthouse at the entrance of it, which was built in 1878 and owned by the Lotsverket - the Swedish Pilotage Authority. The lighthouse got energy using kerosene in the beginning and later using gas. 1924 it got electricity.

    The lighthouse was extinguished in 1983 and is no longer included in the port lightening. Since 2004, it is equipped with lighting effects. In 2010, the over 20 m high lighthouse repainted.

    When I went to Pildammsparken I came across the Malmo Opera and Music Theatre which is a masterpiece of functionalist architecture. In front of the building is a fountain called Tragos. It shows 22 figures from the theatre world.

    Form/Design Center is located in Hedmanska gården( Hedman courtyard) next to Lilla Torg in Malmö, this was formerly a large granary built by the merchant Gabriel Hedman in 1850.

    Dating from the 16th century, it should be noted that the yard and the surrounding buildings are designated as site of historic interest by the local authorities.

    Inner Harbor

    by Ewingjr98 Updated Nov 18, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    If you take the ferry from Copenhagen to Malmö your first view of the old city will be from the inner harbor. After you pass the simple orange and white lighthouse, you enter this harbor which takes you right into the old town of Malmö.

    After getting off the ferry, go to the Central Station where there is an information booth with maps and helpful locals.
