  • City Hall & Stortorget

    Malmö Things to Do

    This is a very pretty square just off the SW corner of Stortorget. Half-timbered buildings, cobbles, flowers, restaurants and bars with outside seating, little independent shops selling 'special' things...all very pleasant indeed. The square was originally marshland but in the late 1500s this was drained, filled and Lilla Torg (little square)...

    Ven Off The Beaten Path

    We saw a lighthouse as we left Copenhagen and I couldn't find it on the Denmark list. It turned out that it was on the island of Ven (or Hven) which is an island in the Oresund, roughly 2 miles long and a mile and a quarter wide, about 2.5 miles off the Swedish coast. Although this island was formerly a part of Denmark, it has been Swedish since...

    I will long count my visit to Torekov as one of the nicest days in my life. Sure, I had good company (the family) and gorgeous weather, but I must still put a lot of it down to the cosiness of this very special village. A former fishing village, it has grown since it is now a very popular summer destination for Stockholmers. This means house prices...

There are lots of steep cliffs so be careful if you're bringing children, but if you do, you can skip the swimming and in early summer go looking for tadpoles in the little stream at...

It also has some great Scanian houses to admire, including the old inn (now...
