Limhamn Things to Do

  • Öresund Bridge

    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...

  • Berg Monument

    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...

  • Ön architecture

    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...

  • Lime harbour indeed

    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...

  • Old Limhamn

    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

    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.


Limhamn Restaurants

  • Sailors' heaven

    A "kajuta" is a cabin and the name is very appropriate since this is Malmö Yacht Club's restaurant. Don't worry or be put off by the Sebago ads on the walls - Sweden allegedly has more pleasure boats than most other countries in the World so this is a popular hobby and not just for snobs! The restaurant is not more expensive than anywhere else and...

  • Japanese fusion

    Nami is housed in the old Limhamn Savings Bank which is history in itself even if it is definately a restaurant these days. It is a place were staff is cheerful and where most food has Japanese influences but fear not if you don't like sushi as there is also other food, mainly based on tasty and original sandwhiches. A great place to spend a hungry...

  • Skippers pub

    A maritime theme establishment in quaint Limhamn, where locals come for their pint or Sunday meal and where they are asked to eat, drink and be merry. Great food and loads of suitable seaside decorations which remind you of Leith for those of you who know Edinburgh. Cozy outside veranda in summer. Spontaneous events and the odd gig has been known...


Limhamn Warnings and Dangers

    by Sjalen Written Feb 9, 2007

    Common all over Scanian beaches, Sibbarp too has a lot of geese. They're used to people and rarely aggressive BUT they leave their marks everywhere on the lawns so watch where you put your picnic blanket!

Limhamn Sports & Outdoors

  • Swimming

    In summer, you can enjoy warm days by the jetties at Sibbarp and swim from them or the pebbly/stony shores. There is also the Sibbarp Bath where you can go for a dip both summer and winter. Yes, the picture here shows the water temperature on a sunny winter's day and yes, the place is crowded - it is very popular with pensioners in winter. :)

  • Fishing

    The camp site nearby organises fishing trips, but otherwise this jetty by the "children's bay" just before the Öresund Bridge is a place often full of local fishermen who will know where to go.
