Malmo is located on the southern tip of Sweden, and it is an important port city. Due to the large number of immigrants, Malmo has a very multicultural atmosphere that is reflected by the city’s cuisine and cultural life. This Malmo Travel Guide offers some basic information about this beautiful city so that planning your holiday will seem like a piece of cake.

Malmo Travel Guide - Transport

There are two major international airports in the vicinity of Malmo. The first one, Malmo Airport, is located at about 55 kilometres from the city centre. Ironically, Copenhagen Airport is closer to Malmo, at only 24 kilometres. Both airports serve major destinations in Europe and abroad. There are regular bus and train services running from the airports to Malmo, but make sure to check the schedules, because they can vary on Weekends. From Stockholm there are about ten trains every day in the direction of Malmo. Railway services are a cheaper alternative to planes, and if your departure point is in Europe you can most certainly find trains, albeit not always direct connections, to Malmo. If you are not averse to a trip by boat, you can take the ferry from Travemünde in Germany, and sail under the magnificent 8 kilometres long Øresund Bridge that links Sweden to Denmark. For the inhabitants of Malmo, bicycles are the most popular means of transport in the city. There are bicycle tracks virtually everywhere in the city so you’ll have to trouble reaching your destination, and in addition to that, renting a bike is much less pricy than paying the taxi fare.

STF Malmo City Hostel is a veritable backpacker paradise. The hostel was built only a couple of years ago, and it has all the necessary facilities and more: free internet, TV, a spacious common kitchen, a comfortable living room and breakfast included in the price.
