Walking Tour of Malmö
Discover Malmö, Sweden‘s third largest city, by joining the Walking Tour of Malmö and learn more about the history of the city thanks to the commentary from an authorized local guide.
One of the highlights of the walking tour is Gamla Staden, the historic center of Malmö, famous for its colorful medieval houses and picturesque squares. The most characteristic square of Gamla Staden is Lilla Torg, which literally means small square, the smallest square of Malmö. Dating back to the 16th century, Lilla Torg was a medieval square characterized by colorful half–timbered houses and cobbled streets. Stroll together with the authorized local guide to Stortorget, which literally means large square and is next to Lilla Torg, where you can admire the Town Hall building in Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque style.
Walking through the streets of the historic center with the authorized local guide you will get to some of the main monuments of Malmö. Discover the important Church of San Pietro (Sankt Petri Kyrka), the oldest building in the city, which was built in Baltic Gothic style in 1319 and is characterized by red bricks. The Museum of Modern Art (Moderna Museet) is a few steps from the church, and it’s housed in a disused power plant dating back to the early twentieth century. Masterpieces by important artists from 1900 to the present are exhibited, including works by Picasso, Matisse, Kandinsky and Dalí.
After visiting the historic center, continue the private walking tour to Malmö Castle, the oldest Renaissance fortress in Sweden, which is characterized by red walls. The local guide will tell you the history of this fortress which was built in 1434, when Malmö was still a Danish city.
