As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmøhus stands as a beautiful red brick fortress and adjoins the castle built in the 1530s. An important stronghold of Denmark, this castle-turned-prison tells the story of its captives. For five years the castle imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots' third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. Today the castle is home to a museum of ancient art, modern photography, taxidermy, and prison cells for touring. Limited signage is provided in English.

  • Arrived in Malmo early in the morning, this wasn't open yet but we walked all around; the garden behind it and the windmill. Very interesting place. Wish I had more time. Had to catch my train! 
  • We went on a Sunday and my (thankfully) surprise, the entry was free. This place was an ancient Fortress and today is a museum complex, which has a small Museum of natural history, Museum of art objects and some precious items, and an aquarium, which is worth a visit. The Aquarium several types of fish that I had only heard of but never thought I'd see, like the blind albino fish with legs (look at picture to believe), that unfortunately not photographed the scientific name, plus other strange fish that didn't even know exist. Worth the visit

  • Plan for repeat visits as it cannot be absorbed in one. Living history and natural world experience with a good café.
