#1 of 10 in Museums in Malmo
As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmohus 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.

  • Unfortunatelly very tasteless, especially salladbar that is under all critique. A lot of food on the plate though, if you are into that you will be happy. I would put in some love in the food, just some more visible herbs on/in the dishes and a salladbar with nutritional crops would so much.
  • Very delicious pasta!
  • It's nice
