A conglomeration of over a hundred different nationalities, cosmopolitan Malmo sits on the southern tip of Sweden as part of the most densely populated area in Scandinavia.
Kids will enjoy Smalandet Markaryds Algsafari and Oresund Bridge. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Lund Cathedral and Stenshuvud National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Malmo: Sofiero Palace (in Helsingborg), Per Helsas Gard (in Ystad) and Hallestads kyrka (in Lund). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Tylosand Strand and explore the engaging exhibits at Naturum Vattenriket.
