Parks & Gardens
The main parks – Folkets Park, Slottsparken (Malmö Castle Garden), Pildammsparken and Kungsparken – form a green band between the city beach at Ribersborg and the Stadium area of town. Other favourite parks include Raoul Wallenberg’s Park, Bulltofta and Bunkeflo ängar for picnics, walks and sports. And the (very pretty) Queen Silvia Rose Garden hosts open-air theatre performances and concerts in summertime.
Western Harbour (Västra Hamnen) the ultra-modern new part of town with stunning views of the 8-kilometre long Öresund Bridge, gracefully arching its way over to the coastline of Denmark. It’s green, it’s vast, it’s seaside. And it’s got a lot of open space and 2 parks: Scania park, and Dania park, both featuring outstanding park architecture.
Naked beach bums
The 2.5 km long beachfront at Ribersborg is packed with restaurants, bars, cafés and nightclubs and Ribersborg Kallbadhus is where you can become a naked beach bum (a seawater bathing facility with saunas and naked bathing options. Ooooh. Exciting). Other beaches of Malmö include Scania Bath in the Western Harbour district, as well as Sibbarp and Klagshamn.
The Malmö Castle Garden that grows a wide range of organic produce is a must go-see if you are interested in urban gardening. You can buy plants, fruits and vegetables here or just feed yourself at the quite fabulous (and very popular) organic café.
