We visited Malmo on a very cold and windy day; if it were nicer, we might have spent more time exploring the square. Surrounded by large old-looking buildings, you could almost imagine how it might have looked hundreds of years ago. This would be a great place to visit (and probably see some entertainment!) in warmer weather.

I was very impressed with the main square. Spend some time sitting under the statue of Karl X Gustav and make sure you take a picture and enjoy the architecture of city hall. There are restaurants in the area as well, we enjoyed Mello Yello which is more on Lila Torg but also has a view into this square. I... More

Some squares offers exciting environments, beautiful sceneries or interesting build commitment - some squares you pass just on the way to some place else. This square is definitely a square, you do not stay on for very long, but seasonally so created quite a lot of events here that temporarily makes one pause. However, there are some interesting old wall... More

My favorite coffee shop in Malmo. Cheese cake is delicious. I have visited this shop with different people and everyone has liked it. It is full of people always.

Malmo's most popular attraction they say. We came here on Wednesday's afternoon, expecting it to be crowded, but it was absolutely empty. Better for us, because this way we could enjoy looking at the buildings surrounding the square! Couple of shops and restaurants are located around this square. In the middle you can see King charles X's statue and a... More

If you're going through the square, don't miss the magnificent, gigantic, be-hatted bronze statue of Karl X Gustav sitting on a horse.

Here you have all kinds of shops. What do you need? You are in the middle of town and you can buy anything you need. The distance you have to big shopping center or to small shops are near you. The possibility for food or coffee is also available in one of the many corners around the center of the... More

Walked around there and had dinner 2 nights in the area. Really busy place and lots of tourists and locals. Our hotel was a bit away, so we were not worried about the noise, but woudld not want to be staying on that square, I think..

..and every square meter full of history - take a look also at the restored 400-year-old fountain. It's just a place you've must been when you're in Malmö learning a bit more of the spirit of this town.
