The best guide to maximizing your holiday in Malmo
Copenhagen is a dynamic modern metropolis with the flurry of bicycles flooding the streets and its numerous town squares are constantly crammed with people, either en route to a trendy store or simply people-watching. Even though the city can be thrilling you might want to get away to a more relaxed and peaceful environment. Worry not, tired visitor your second destination for a two-nation holiday getaway is just a half hour train ride away.
Kungsparken, termed the 'City of Parks', Malmö has no absence of shrubbery and was recommended to me by my good friend Peder Prahl. Guests will love the relaxing and tranquil ambiance which the city brings. Strolling through the town you'll notice plenty of natural areas and ensure to make best use of the outdoor experiences available across the city. Take a stroll in Kungsparken and drift around the countless paths throughout the park. You can also hire a paddleboat to paddle around the canal which goes through the metropolis.
Malmö is an awesome outing to try if you want to give your wallet and your thoughts a break from Copenhagen. Dining and shopping is often more affordable here than in the Danish metropolis over the water. Tour Lilla Torg for chic shopping and dining, while this place has charming architecture it's more of a vacationer area for the town so prices might be higher at dining establishments compared to places like Möllan. Möllan is a much more laid back place and is known as the hipster area of town. Don't allow this designation to discourage you from going for a walk in the neighborhood in which you will discover global meals that are tasty and budget-friendly. There are even countless bars and clubs in the area like the popular Debaser where one can even see a concert or if perhaps you are hoping to get your dance on, check out Cuba Café.
Möllan is among the greatest users of coffee in the world and they undeniably understand how to brew the ideal cup of joe. Be certain to take a coffee break or 'fika' on your stay.
