Five Hours in Malmo, Sweden

Five Hours in Malmo, Sweden, Malmo, Sweden (B)

Did you know the Swedish city, Malmo, is just 27 miles from Copenhagen in Denmark? After realising this during our trip to the Danish capital, we decided to hot-foot it over to Sweden and tick off TWO countries in one go!

It couldn’t have been easier to do. The journey by train is just 35 minutes. From our hotel it was just a short walk to Copenhagen central station and we simply bought our tickets from a machine which had an English language option. We narrowly caught the train to Malmo although I’m not sure the train operator was particularly pleased with me shoving the buggy in the closing doors in our bid to climb aboard.
