Blending the modern with the traditional, Malmö is a stunning Swedish city that has grown in reputation from the year 2000 thanks to a renovation of the area that has completely turned the prospects of the area around. From the bridge connecting it with Copenhagen to the ‘Twisting Torso’ towers, Malmö is a confident city. Now a thriving destination for people of all interests, there is a stunning blend of culture throughout the city that balances ideally with the traditional Scandinavian culture that runs throughout the town. Influenced by large groups of immigrants from Africa and Asia, Malmö is a very cosmopolitan place too.
A small city car is ideal for driving around Malmö thanks to its versatility and structure that makes parking and travelling a treat. A city car should also be able to handle the city’s busier roads.

Important things to note
The Oresund Bridge, opened in 2000, connects Malmö to Copenhagen, and is perhaps the easiest way to travel to and from the city. The bridge operates a toll system.
Bikes are by far the most popular mode of transport within the city, while there is an unspoken rule that they are always given right of way by pedestrians and motorists.
Many areas within the city centre itself are pedestrianized, especially within the three squares in the city centre, so drivers should take note of surrounding areas in which to park.
Highlights & Hotspots
Based within the centre of the city, the three squares make up the centre of Malmö and offer a range of enthralling and exciting experiences for visitors the world over. The areas include Gustav Adolf’s Square, the Big Square and the Little Square that offer shopping and dining opportunities.
The Malmö Museer is made up of a collection of museums in and around the Malmöhus Slott, making the castle and its surrounding area a place of continual entertainment. The attractions include an aquarium, furniture museum, art gallery and technology and maritime museum.
There is a fantastic music and nightclub scene throughout the city, with all tastes and interests catered for. Highlights are Inkonst which hosts everything from hip-hop to blues, while Kulturbolaget is famed for hosting some of the world’s biggest acts and legendary club nights and events.
The city has been bitten by the culinary bug, as internationally renowned restaurants have flooded the area, making the area a haven of opportunity for foodies. High class cuisine resides alongside Scandinavian favourites, meaning there’s something for everyone to enjoy on almost every corner.
Two airports serve Malm√∂; Malm√∂ Airport and Copenhagen Airport. A number of domestic and international flights operate within both airports daily, while the vast majority can be found servicing Copenhagen.
Malm√∂ is the nearest one, being nine miles east southeast of the city centre. It can be reached via the E65 motorway.
