This gorgeous synagogue was built in 1903 and no thanks to the anti-semitic policies of the Nazis, is one of the few remaining prewar Synagogues in northern Europe. Its lofty interior is spacious, solemn and serene, and its services and tours are a moving experience for the Jewish faithful and gentiles alike.
This university is the second largest in Scania, and is located in downtown Malmö. It's relatively new but has quickly grown into the ninth largest university in Sweden. The campus is modern and inviting, and features a cafe as well that is a good place for reading, meeting friends or catching up on some work.
This park surrounds the Malmö soccer stadium. It's a nice place for a barbecue if you're joining the ten thousand boisterous football fans or have picked a day when they're not in attendance. It's easy to get here by bus or tram, and is not far from the central city on foot either.
The neighborhood of Rosengård's name could be rendered in English as "the rose garden," and this park is the space that lent it its name. The park is spacious and full-service, featuring tons of facilities for sports and recreation, including an Olympic-sized running track.

Both museums can be visited in a day, but the castle itself is a unique piece of history and architecture and also provides beautiful views of the city and the waters of the Öresund.
Standing in the heart of the city, Sankt Johannes Kyrka is an eye-catching edifice, and easily one of Malmo's most beautiful churches.

The church has an active congregation, and hosts numerous community events throughout the year.

Few places in the city of Malmo embody such a unique amalgamation of old and new as Lilla Torg. With breathtakingly charming old houses surrounding the cobbled square in the heart of the Old Town, it isn't hard to imagine what life must have been like when horse-drawn carriages clipped through the streets. Come night fall, this little square turns into a veritable hub of activity, with some of the city's hottest night clubs and restaurants tucked away under the brightly colored umbrellas and medieval awnings. Stroll through the cobbled streets surrounding the square and discover the mouth-watering array of International cuisines represented in the little stalls, shops and open-air eateries that spring up during the summer months. Just a short walk from the square, food enthusiasts can check out the Malmö Saluhall, a covered market offering up an incredible array of gastronomic delights. Hedmanska Gården on the square features one of the oldest buildings dating back to the 1600's and visitors can look out for events and concerts in and around the square. Known as Malmo's restaurant district, there is something to please everyone here.
This area is one of the few remaining districts of old Malmö, preserved largely as it was in ages past. The streets are narrow and the buildings are aged and authentically Swedish. There are several shops and boutiques and these cater to both tourists and locals. This area is a great place to stop in for souvenirs and photographs. The district begins just west of Lilla Torg off of Stortorget and runs to the Slottsparken.
