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

4.3
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.

  • Don't miss this 800 year old continuously operating church in the heart of old Malmo. Stark white yet beautiful interior. High vaulted ceiling. Huge ornate altar, beautiful pulpit - out of place in this Reformation setting. Ask the attendant for the story on how the Reformation changed this church and to explain the intricately decorated chapel. There's so much history all in one church. And it's situated in the beautiful old town just of the town square. About a quarter mile from the central train station.
  • St. Peter's Church is a Lutheran church located in the center of the city of Malmo, Belongs to the Diocese of Lund of the Church of Sweden. This church was inaugurated in the fourteenth century, having initially been built as a basilica with three naves in Gothic style. This Christian temple was consecrated to St. Peter and St. Paul.
  • i admired it from the outside only :) The surround area looks a bit too public and it’s closer to the roads.. might be noisy?
  • Beautiful outside but very disappointed to say it is currently closed for renovations. No info to say when it will open again.
  • A very nice example of architecture. One of the oldest buildings in Malmö. This church has an interesting history ,which make you to visit it.
