    Canal tour

    by Sjalen Updated Feb 25, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    A trip around the Malmö canals will set you back SEK 75 and lasts 50 minutes. Why you should go on it? Because the captains/guides are funny and the owner family which took over "Rundan" some years ago are very friendly. In the ticket office you can also buy a hamper full of coffee and cake for your trip :-) And yes you do learn things about Malmö too whilst cruising along the very green city. If you fancy a canal tour by your own machine, just rent a pedalo boat from the quays behind Stortorget instead (see my sports tips).

    Canals

    Old center of Malmö is surrounded by canals that offer nice views of the different parts of the city or a good opportunity for a nice walk.
    "Rundan" canal boats organizes guided boat tours in Swedish, German or English from April till October. The trip lasts 45 minutes and takes you around centre and through some of the beautiful Malmö's parks. Boats leave from the canal opposite the Railway station.

    2003 Beijers Park Model

    A romantic park with twisting paths, Beijers Park has about 9,5 acres of land since 1915. It is situated in the east part of Malmo.

    There is a small cafe in the park and during the summer, local musicians will perform in the evening.

    Sit on the steps down to the canal behind Stortorget but don't blame me when you jump ten feet in the air as you spot the first cat...and then another one...They are sculptures in natural size and put there to give you company :-)

    A walk in the Slottsparken, or...

    A walk in the Slottsparken, or why not a picknick?
    During the 19th century Malmöhus hussar regiment was using the land south of Malmöhus Castle as a military training area. When the regiment at the end of that century moved to 'Hästhagen', where the shopping centre Kronprinsen is situated nowadays, a proposal about laying out a park there was brought up. The land was bordering the Kungspark, and the government managed to buy enough land to create a vast green area.

    When a large industry- and handicraft trade fair ended in 1896, it was decided that the military area should definitely be transformed into a park, and by 1900 it was finished and could finally be opened to the public.

    Behind Stortorget runs a canal with steps down to it - from the bridge I was told to look carefully at the steps... and then I noticed them! Life-size bronze sculptures of cats!

    Kungsparken and Slottsparken

    by bonio Written Jun 10, 2005

    Lovely way to spend a sunny morning strolling around these two parks, next to each other and very close to the city centre. Lots of entertaining ducks and geese around!

    Mrs Bonio was very impressed with the statues of cats by the canal. They are close to Davidshall bridge and very realistic!!
