Get to know the locals at Lilla Torg (small square) in Malmö.
Lilla Torg (small square) is where the locals come to eat, drink, shop and basically hang out.
This cobblestone square was built in 1592 and many of the buildings date from this time. Now resplendent after restoration, they form a colourful background to this charming square that between March and October is packed with open-air eateries. Saluhallen, on the square, is a covered market offering global cuisine – Malmö is a city of 164 nations and 100 languages after all - and this is deliciously reflected in the myriad restaurants and cafes here.
Hedmanska Gården is an enclosed courtyard on Lilla Torg. Its oldest building is 16th century and the most recent addition is a warehouse from the 19th century. This building is now the Form/Design Centre, which mounts design and architecture exhibitions and hosts open-air concerts in July.
