Malmö – The Place

The Problem

I had no preconceptions about Malmö. I did very little research before my trip.

I did not need to. The main reason for going was to be outside Little Britain when it left the EU. I could have gone anywhere. Malmö was accessible for a 2 night stay, plus I could take in an ice hockey game from one of Europe’s top leagues

City Centre

What did I find?

A pleasant and relaxed city, with plenty of charm, but without any of the pressures of mass tourism. It was pretty much ideal for my 48 hour escape.

19th Century

I was right about perceiving it to be accessible. It is as easy to get there from Copenhagen Airport as Copenhagen is! All my travel arrangements were smooth.

I found a great deal with the hotel I chose – the Radisson Blu. I have blogged about it already.

Perhaps I was lucky, or perhaps my expertise shone through, but all my food experiences were excellent. The hotel buffet breakfast was a great start!

Soul Food

I ate Italian, Greek, Vietnamese and Swedish – they were all delightful.

The city centre is pleasant to walk around, with a variety of architectural heritage. It has plenty of pedestrian only areas. I enjoyed visiting Malmöhus, and the exhibition on migration in particular. The ice hockey was fantastic – a top class arena, top class teams and a big crowd.

After the Game

Would I go back? Yes.
