Besides being the main square, and housing the beautiful Town Hall building, it is a nice place to eat and do some shopping (including souvenirs). If you are lucky, the old pharmacy (on the opposite corner) might even be open, so make sure to visit it!

I love such city square type places in European cities. This doesn't disappoint . Very nicely surrounded by nice buildings. Only thing missing for me , is some Christmas market to be on this square .

What to expect of a square in Malmö in mid November? Nothing special. Nothing special is what I got, and I don't understand how this is listed as a sight.

Malmo has a number of open spaces and this is another one of them. Fairly attractive although nothing out of the ordinary.

Nice Central Spacious Square. Nice to walk around. There's not much here though to be honest. Nice to walk though once you get off the train

There´s a nice fountain and old nice buildings, but I would rather go back to Lille Torget which is smaller cozier and has more atmosphere.

One of few Malmo's must-see squares. It has it all: a fountain, a ritterstatue, restaurants and shops. Have a look.
