We could see the spire when we were walking around Malmö, so were intrigued as to the building it belonged to. St. Petri is a beautiful Church with such history, as it was built over 700 years ago. Lots of interesting artefacts to look at.

Loved the "rat trail" that's been laid on for children over summer. Great fun for wee ones.

Thrilled to hear the organ being played while we were there as well. What a gorgeous sound it made.

Upon arriving at the Malmo train station, my feet almost automatically walked into this old church.....used for hundreds of years, and still in use......the center aisle has numerous people/ families buried in places, all marked by stone coverings that are now barely able to be read. Many people have entered those doors over the centuries, and listened to untold sermons.....it is well-maintained, and that is certainly a credit to those who do the work.

Don't miss this wonderful place.
If possible be there when the organ is being played. It is a stunning modern instrument the likes of which we had never seen before. It was restored by public subscription - what generosity.
The rest of the building is also amazing and the Pearls of Life, new to us, were heart-stopping.

After reading other reviews, we wanted to visit this church and we were not disappointed. We came on a Sunday, wanted to attend services, but could not find the times. Unfortunately, we arrived too late. However it should be noted that he church does hold services and they do invite the public. Despite our arrival right after church let out, all of the tourists were warmly welcomed, I saw some of them snapping pictures which seemed fine with them---they never asked for a penny. I took the cue from another reviewer and donated money because of their kindness to us.

On the outside, the church has great flying buttresses (around back) . The surface of the church looks like it has been through it--remember it is hundreds of years old. When you walk in, the church is startlingly bright and airy for such an old building...ethereal. The workmanship is incredible--what a pretty church. The intricate paintings on the ceilings and crypts are to your left and then back...very close. They were very different from any ceiling paintings I have ever seen--and I have seen many. I thought they were charming--photos don't capture that.

Worth a visit!! Right near train, shopping, and city center.

A visit to S:t Petri Kryka (St. Peters Church) is a must while you’re in Malmö. The murals and decor are beautiful and a great glimpse into history.

The Church is at the back of Malmo town hall.... The street is quiet and there many shops around... There are bench where you can sit if you are tired walking around.

A beautiful church, started in the 14th century. While the exterior is dark brick the intererior is white, with impressive lanterns, altar, and organ. Free admission, certainly worth stopping in.

Amazingly all white inside with a wonderful 14th century chapel to the left of the door. All the frescos are original and unrestored.
