    Inside a U3 submarine

    by bpacker Updated Aug 11, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our curiousity got the better of us so we squeezed our fat selves into the claustrophobic confines of the submarine. Fascinating. We saw dials, pipes and all kinds of gadgets inside.

    Where:Teknik-Och Sjöfartsmuseet , inside a U3 submarine
    Cost:Free with the Malmö Card

    Address: Malmöhusvägen

    Malmohusvagen-Teknik-Och Sjofartsmuseet

    by bpacker Updated Aug 11, 2005

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After Liz and I exhausted all four museums in the Castle, we went across the street to check out Kommendanthuset ( Military Museum) and Teknik-Och Sjöfartsmuseet (Museum of Technology). Not that we were military buffs or anything. We just wanted to milk our malmo card for all its worth. The most impressive exhibit I remembered was the moby-dick sized submarine U-3.

    Malmöhus

    Malmöhus is the oldest still standing renesans castle in the Nordic region. You can still see remainds of Erik av Pommerns castel from 1434. It was the royal residens whenever the danish royal visited Malmö, and it was also a prison for high ranking prisoners.

    When the swedes took over in 1658, the fortress became fortified, but the fortress lost its significance during the 1700. It was used as a prison from 1828 till 1909.

    Address: West of the city center

    Directions: Slottsparken

    Malmöhus Castle & Museums

    by Sjalen Updated Mar 15, 2004

    1.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Malmöhus is the oldest intact renaissance castle in Scandinavia but don't expect too much in the way of turrets and staircases. It has been rebuilt through history even though it HAS seen some action and for instance Mary Queen of Scots' husband Lord Boswell was imprisoned here a short while! Today, it has been extended to also house several museums about Malmö history, nature (including an aquarium and a terrarium with bats, blue frogs etc) and Malmö art museum. There is also a wonderful park outside to walk around in afterwards and maybe soak up the sun by the Slottsmöllan windmill or the tiny café by the hothouses. Just down the road is the little Technical and Naval Museum where you can see planes, trains and motorbikes as well as an exhibition on Malmö harbour and one on new technology (same ticket). There is also a WWII submarine to enter there.

    Directions: Everyone can direct you to it wherever you are.

    Have a visit to Malmöhus...

    Have a visit to Malmöhus Castle.
    This massive fortress was built 1536-42 on the site where Erik of Pommern's citadel had previously stood. Some Danish kings have resided at Malmöhus and it has even been a prison. The castle had its heydays with festivals and tournaments when fredrik II was crown prince. Today, this large castle houses Malmö's museums and a restaurant.

    Address: In the old part of Malmö.
