Travel Diary | Malmo

Following on from my Copenhagen travel diary I thought I'd do a post on a day trip to Malmo. After loving Stockholm and being a big fan of all things Sweden I was really looking forward to visiting Malmo. I was really looking forward to seeing the Oresund Bridge as it always comes up as one of the things to see when visiting Copenhagen.

We booked this trip before we left which included a small group in a mini bus which included going over the famous Oresund Bridge and a Canal Tour when we got to Malmo. Our driver was really nice and gave us little facts during the trip. When we flew into Copenhagen you could see the bridge and it was really impressive. You actually go through a tunnel then onto a man made island before going over the actual bridge.

We went on our Canal Tour as soon as we got to Malmo and it was a really relaxing way to see the city, especially since we only had a couple of hours to explore. Our tour also included coffee and cinnamon buns which was a really nice touch and lasted about an hour.

When we went to Stockholm I loved all the beautiful buildings and Malmo was just the same. It's such a picturesque city which had such a relaxing feel to it. On the tour we came across these steps which our guide said the man who designed it wanted to add these two cats so if you sit here alone you won't feel lonely.

After the boat trip we had a couple of hours to explore on our own. We went to the tourist information and a really friendly lady told us the best thing was to walk around the square since we didn't have much time. She was definitely right since that area was so nice to wonder round as there were lots of cute little shops, cafes and places to sit.

We picked the perfect day to come to Malmo as the weather was beautiful and it wasn't that busy since it was mid week. I love visiting Sweden as the people are so friendly and it just a great country to visit with a lot of history. I would definitely go back to Malmo for a long trip to do some shopping and see more of the city since what we did see I really loved. 

The only downside of going to Sweden from Denmark is they have different currency but there are places within the train station where you can change your money as well as being able to pay on card. Have you visited Malmo or visited the Oresund Bridge?
