How to Reach

By Plane

Both Malmö Airport (Sturup)  and Copenhagen Airport (Kastrup)  serve Malmö. If you get to the Malmö Airport you'll then have to take the bus shuttle service to downtown Malmö, but first check the schedules at Flygbussarna's homepage  because on Saturday afternoons they don't have many buses. From Copenhagen Airport you can either take the train or the bus, bus being the cheapest option.

By Train

Trains from Copenhagen take 35 minutes from København H (Copenhagen Central Station) to Malmö. They leave all day from Elsinore (Helsingør), traversing the east coast of Sjælland, before crossing CPH centre and then crossing the Öresund bridge to Malmö, also connecting Kastrup airport to the city. Extra trains leave in peak hours from København H (Copenhagen Central Station) to Malmö Svågertorp, on the southern fringes of the city with bus connection to the centre, making it 6 trains an hour. Expect to pay 190 SEK for a return ticket to Kastrup airport or Copenhagen Central.

By Bus

Grahundbus Swebus GoByBus  and Eurolines  have routes to Copenhagen and other places. To Copenhagen the buses take longer (about an hour) but are cheaper than the train, especially for day trips.

Places to Visit

Carriage Museum

East of the center of Malmö, in Drottningtorget, is the Carriage Museum, housed in the old Town Hall (old carriages; history of the motor car). Nearby in the St Gertrud district are a number of carefully restored old houses (16th-19th C.), now a leisure center.

Pildammspark

South the Municipal Theater of Malmö is Pildammspark, with an open-air theater and the Margareta Pavilion. In this area too are the Stadium and the Exhibition Halls. The Hyllie Water Tower (77m/253ft high) is open to visitors.

St Peter's Church

The street between the Governor's Residence and the Malmö Town Hall leads to St Peter's Church (St. Petri), an imposing 14th century brick building modeled on St Mary's Church in Lübeck. Notable features of the interior are the pulpit (1599) and the Baroque altarpiece (1611). To the left of the entrance is the baptismal chapel, with Late Gothic wall paintings of flowers and animals and a font of 1601.
    
Gustav Adolfs Torg

Södergatan, a busy shopping and business street in Malmö, runs south to Gustav Adolfs Torg. Beyond this, over the canal, is Södra Förstadsgatan, which leads to the elegant Triangeln shopping center, with a modern hotel.
