Stortorget Square is the largest square on Old Town and is very historic. A public fountain dating back over 400 years has been restored. Colorfully painted storefronts are the signature of this part of Stockholm. A 'must see' part of your walking tour of Old Town.

This is old town square with lots of old heritage buildling arround it. Worth a walk through this area which you are bound to pass while visiting other places of interest in town.

Starting point to explore Malmo. Big square. Old building arround, shops, and street attraction. Easily reached from the station. Walking distance to the museum and Malmo park.

Huge square that's great to sit and take in the architecture of the old buildings surrounding it. City Hall is pretty spectacular but not much more than a square you pass through to get to Lilla Torg or Central Station.

Nothing exciting about this square. Big open space and the city hall is there. Just proceed to little plaza 5m further down with cafes and restaurants

I really liked it. I liked the feel of it, the low-key historic style combined with competing Kings (Burger and Shawarma), delicious fast-food (Max's), convenient pharmacy (apototek) and tourist shop. The marching band installation was a huge hit with my toddler. He wanted to go back and see it time and time again. Anything that makes him that happy is... More

Nothing much to comment on. A large open square. We expected some sort of street market like the easter market in Prague but it was just given over to car parking. Some nice architecture around the square and a few restaurants.

This is the first place you'll reach when heading into town from the station and it makes for a nice arrival. There are some very interesting buildings including the lovely city hall.

If in Malmö this is a great place to start your visit. Stroll around the square and when you are done take a walk to Lilla Torg (the small square) just next to it. Here you will find plenty of restaurants, bars and cafees. A variety of food to choose from. When done here keep walking the big shopping street... More

Its a large square dominated by City Hall a large and imposing building. The large chemist is worth a look as it retains the old dispensing bottles and although modern and fully functioning they have retained the history of the place and don't mind you coming in to have a look around - well worth a visit !
