My first impression of Malmo was made up of its warm, beautiful coffee shops that were straight out of a designer decor magazine. On a cold, windy day in November, you can imagine how lovely it is to see the bright halogen lighting exuding out of coffee shops where people are sitting and taking a well-deserved fika (Swedish break for...

I find it a bit odd writing a review of a town square, but I have done because of the architecture. I like the architecture in old Malmo and there are quite a few nice interesting buildings here. Don't expect anything too exciting though. It is worth mentioning Spegeln though, a great place to stop off at to watch the... More

Its big and that's about it. There's a big carpark in the middle and the square is surrounded mostly by hotels and a cinema. Its nothing special although it did look pretty with all the Christmas lights on the trees. Lillatorg, a small cobbled square nearby, is much prettier and has a more typical Swedish feel to it.

Already Xmas for them and the square has it's Xmas tree right in the middle, near the statue of King Gustav, facing the Town hall. On the left, looking at the City hall, you can walk to St Peter's church and on the right you will walk towards the shopping street and the Little Square. Great walk from the train... More

Being about two minutes walk from the train station it is usual with people arrived by train will go through Stortorget as it is connecting the walking Street through Malmö

I cycled around this square. Next to Lilla Torg. In this large square you will see the Malmo City Hall, a statue of King Karl Gustav, the Kebab stall..! and many other beautiful buildings. Malmo is very clean but what shocks you is the amount of cigarette butts in the cobbled streets. This can only be the cyclists....such a shame.... More

No destination in itself but if you are in town you will naturally pass across the square.Certainly one could think a little more seating, farmers' markets and some cafes to get a little more alive
