St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), Malmo

4.4
Marvel at the simplicity of St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), a large house of worship built in the Gothic style in 1319. The grand brick exterior is complete with a 105 m (344 ft) tower and surrounded by stone carvings. In contrast, the interior features simple white walls that enhance the ornate fixtures and altar. One section of the ceiling has been restored to the original painted mural. As the oldest building in the city, the church provides a haven for quiet retreat. An informational pamphlet is available at an additional cost.

  • A great church building from the 1300 century in Central Malmö, 200 m from the main square. Copper roof is renovated. Open every day 10-18.

  • A very beautiful church inside, hoping to one day get the Council to produce the old kalkmaleriere, you see a bit of them on the left side of the nave when one enters
