This park surrounds the Malmö soccer stadium. It's a nice place for a barbecue if you're joining the ten thousand boisterous football fans or have picked a day when they're not in attendance. It's easy to get here by bus or tram, and is not far from the central city on foot either.

Stadionparken, Malmo, Sweden, 211 39
Malmö Castle

Originally constructed by King Eric of Pomerania in the 15th Century, Malmö Castle, as it stands today, dates back to the 16th Century and is an icon of southern Sweden. Built by the Danes, it has served as a military fortress, a prison, an armory and now houses two museums - the Konstmuseum and the Stadsmuseum -, both administered by the city. While the former is the city's primary art museum, the latter is a repository of artifacts and information that pertain to the city's rich history. Both museums attract countless visitors, but the castle itself is a unique piece of local heritage that also provides beautiful views of the city and the waters of the Öresund. Historically, the castle is significant as the prison that held James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell, the third husband of Mary, Queen of Scots, for a period of five years between 1568 and 1573. A grand and imposing structure to this day, the red-hued facade of Malmö Castle continues to inspire much awe.

Gustav Adolfs Torg

Located in the heart of the city, Gustav Adolf Torg is a prominent public square. Not only is the square nestled amidst a number of historical buildings and important landmarks but the square is also close to The Old Cemetery. Besides the buildings, the square is also known for the number of sculptures and architectural pieces scattered across it as well as the number of cafes and shopping stalls housed here. The square is host to summer festivals as well. Whether you marvel at the historic Children Playing sculpture, relax in one of the cafes or shop for souvenirs, you can be rest assured of a memorable time in the buzzing space that is Gustav Adolfs Torg.

Stortorget is the original core of the old city. Once the market square for the medieval population, it's now one of the most upscale addresses in the city and houses shops, restaurants and is very close to several of the city's signature landmarks. Visitors staying on or near Stortorget are guaranteed a front row seat to the civic life and attractions of Malmö.

The Pildammsparken was built for the Baltic Exposition in the early 20th Century and has been delighting Malmö residents for generations. It's the largest park in central Malmö, and besides offering copious opportunities for recreation such as soccer fields, tennis courts and so on, it also adjoins the grounds of Malmö Stadium.

One of the finest examples of empire state architecture in the country, Katrinetorp is a historic estate worth the trip. A popular destination among history lovers, this 19th-century manor and its English gardens is nestled on Malmo's outskirts. Though it underwent a renovation, all its historical evidences have been kept intact, including its period decor. This former country estate is now administered by the City of Malmo. Guided tours are provided if requested. These tours will take you through the history of this estate, its rooms and gardens. The converted barn restaurant is a garden cafe of repute. It is in the east wing of the property. Check out the gift shop on the west wing which sells Swedish linen, ceramics, candles and more.

Lund Cathedral

The beautiful Lund Cathedral was built in the 12th Century, and was for many centuries the seat of the Archbishopric that included all of Scandinavia. Today, the Cathedral is still a major center of the Lutheran church in Sweden, and also functions as a cultural and community center for church-based activities in the town.

Borgeby Slott

This former fortress and castle has a rich history dating as far back as the 10th Century, and is one of the few surviving structures from that period. At its peak, Borgeby Slott is believed to have been a prominent seat of power in the Viking age. Throughout the rest of its history, the castle was inherited by generations of Danish and Swedish nobility until it was finally auctioned off to a private buyer. The castle is currently open to the public for tours and also has a museum preserving the original artwork that adorned it through the years.

Lunds Universitet

Lunds Universitet, or the University of Lund, is one of Scandinavia's oldest and most prestigious universities. When you encounter a person in Sweden who is successful in politics, art, business or intellectual achievement, chances are decent that they studied here. It is a synonym for all the things that university life entails: intellectualism, liberalism, research, political discourse, and not least, partying as well. The university itself is huge- too spread out and massive to be visible at a single sight, it is far larger than the couple of plazas and building developments that are most obviously visible near the center of Lund, and even has affiliated faculties and branches in other cities throughout the region and the nation. The university also houses several museums, and these are likely to be of most interest to visitors not considering attending school here.
