Malmo Radhus (Malmo City Hall), Malmo (must see)

Malmo City Hall was originally built between 1544 and 1547. At that time, Malmo was one of Northern Europe's biggest cities. The impressive two-story building was the largest town hall of the 16th century.

In 1860, the city carried out extensive restoration work and added a Dutch Renaissance-style facade. The upper floor ceilings feature ornate 19th-century stucco work.

The vaulted cellars still reflect the style of the Middle Ages. Today, the cellar hosts the popular Rådhuskällaren restaurant.

The Knutt Hall was inspired by the Hall of Mirrors in Versailles Palace. The impressive Knutt Hall hosts balls and special events. Another ornately decorated room, the Bernadotte room, is reserved for royal and diplomatic guests.
