Malmo from Copenhagen: Day Trip to Sweden

Malmo from Copenhagen: Day Trip to Sweden, Malmo, Sweden (B)

When I visited Copenhagen, I was quite surprised at how close neighbouring Sweden was. You can actually spot the other side of the border across the Øresund strait!

Since I had some time to spare, I decided to cross the border and tick one more country off my list by visiting the Swedish city of Malmö. I didn't have any expectations, so it turned out to be a very interesting day trip!

The easiest way to go from Copenhagen to Malmö is by train, crossing the spectacular 8km long Øresund Bridge. The ride takes about half an hour and trains depart every few minutes from Copenhagen Central Station, which makes it a very convenient method of transport. 

The train will leave you in Malmö Central Station, located just a few minutes walking from all the main tourist attractions.

A good way to start exploring the city is turning right following Norra Vallgatan street towards Malmö Castle. 

The castle is a fortress from the 15th century by the king of Denmark, Norway and Sweden, countries that at that time were a unified kingdom. Today, the castle is part of the Malmö Museer, a collection of museums where you can visit from the oldest Renaissance castle in the region to exhibitions of history, technology and even an aquarium.  ......
