This park, built as an addition to the Slottsparken across the water, is a lovely manicured collection of groves and lawns. Ideal for a picnic or day in the sun, it can also make for a nice stroll when the weather is gray and damp, as it often is in Sweden.

Malmö Konsthall

This modest museum located south of the city center features numerous fine paintings by some of Sweden's top talents as well as those from further abroad. The pieces on display are abstract and mainly adhere to one rule; refreshing. the pieces displayed here are unique and eye-catching. The hall which is one of the largest in the city has featured various artists and surely warrants a visit when in the city.

The Slottsparken began life as the outside grounds of the Malmöhus Castle, and was made into the city's first and most prominent public park in the 19th Century. A lovely mix of manicured lawns and wild copses of trees, it makes for a wonderful setting for walks, picnics or games of football or frisbee.

Skånes Konstförening

This work-space-cum-museum is situated in a modernist building in the southeastern quadrant of the city. There are several gallery spaces devoted to individual artists' work and to special exhibitions.

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.

Ramlösa Brunn

The Ramlösa spring has been a source of famously pure, healthful water for untold centuries, but it wasn't until the 19th Century that intrepid entrepreneurs began to bottle it and export it. Since then, the brand has grown into a worldwide name and the water is now exported as far away as South Africa and New Zealand. The spring contains a whole complex for tourist enjoyment, viewing facilities, a tour of the factory gift shops and lovely outdoor grounds.
