Lilla Torg Tips (11)

Lilla Torg...some pretty old buildings

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) created, presumably because the city (very wealthy at that time) needed the space to expand itself. It was intended as a market area and that is exactly how it functioned, with foodstuffs sold from premises along all its sides (often just huts) and stalls in its centre.

The old huts were torn down in the 1700s and 'proper' buildings built around the square. At the turn of the 1900s a covered market was built and remained in place until the 1960s.

The old houses you can see today are not actually quite as old as they appear. They date, in the main, from the 1700s rebuilding although the courtyard called 'Hedmanska garden' on the southern side (main photo) is partially from the late 1500s. But they are all pretty enough, as is the square itself, and it is no wonder that it is a very popular spot for eating, drinking and generally enjoying oneself.

Wandering The Squares - #2 Lilla Torg

Lilla Torg translates as "Little Square" and was built in the late 16th century as a commercial area for smaller market traders. Its present-day centrepiece is another of the city's quirky public artworks - the pictured bedside lamp. I was kinda disappointed that it was lit by rather ordinary light fittings rather than an impressive huge old-fashioned type bulb but that's just me.

The square is surrounded by some impressive Medieval buildings such as the Hedmanska Gardens (1596) and the half-timbered Faxeska House (1580). Inside the Hedmanska is a tranquil little courtyard which is often used for small-scale concerts and recitals.

Unfortunately the square wasn't at its best on a damp January afternoon but I imagine that it is vibrant during the summer judging by the cafes and bars which encircle it.

Form/Design Center

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.

Reasonable coffee is available.

Lilla Torg - the past living in the present

The square is part of the old downtown of Malmö. Most of its buildings are full with pubs, restaurants and shops.

The northern side is dominated by an elegant brownish beige office building of six floors, the tallest one on Lilla Torg. The south side is different in that it is lower and more original. Most striking is the half-timbered Hedman Estate. Next to it, there is a yellow building containing a very old-fashioned shop. The west side is a mix of old and new; a half-timbered wing followed by two small houses in pastel shades of blue and yellow. The opposite eastern side is a slim beauty surrounded by comparatively modern buildings in light colour.

Many of the locals think it is not else than a tourist trap with expensive restaurants, pubs, while others cannot miss an evening without hopping here. I believe the place is more expensive than some other parts in the city, but enjoying a cold beer and watching the people stroll by, you will feel extremely fine.

Lilla Torg

Lilla Torg is a small, but beautiful square that is always busy and full of life. The buildings are well-kept in the traditional architectural style of Malmö. Each of the buildings has restaurants, many with outdoor seating. This is also one of the top nightlife spots in the Old City as it is home to many bars and pubs.

Lilla Torg

The Lilla Torg square is the sort of place that splits the locals in two camps. Those who adore the place and no evening out is complete without bar hopping here, and those who think it is a tourist trap with overpriced bars. Personally, I think that yes, the place is more expensive than some others but you can't beat it on a warm summer evening when all the bars and restaurants have their tables outside. Not that it is bad in winter either when you have a skating rink at your leasure!
Apart from the appeal of the restaurants, the square itself belongs to the oldest part of Malmö and consequently has some very nice half timbered brick buildings with handicraft and design shops in too. You also want to stroll the side streets on the food hall side as there you will find typical Scanian cottages like in the third and fourth picture, with roses climbing on the walls in summer. If you enjoy this sort of architecture, have a look at the link below to see what 17th century Malmö looked like.

Lilla Torg

This is probably Malmö's most charming square - built in 1592 as a market square, there are several interesting buildings dating from the 16th century and later, several of which are half-timbered. I'm told that in summer the restaurants and cafes spill outside and there is an enchanting atmosphere; when I was there at New Year the centre of the square was taken up with an ice rink which looked great fun!

Check out Lilla Torg. A small little square right next to Stortorget. In the summer there are tons of people at the outdoors cafes at this little square.
