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

4.3
#4 of 18 in Sightseeing in Malmo
Architectural Building Tourist Spot
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.

  • The church wasn't far from Malmo Central Station. It was only a few minutes walking away. If you arrive at Malmo Central Station, I'd highly recommend to check this church out.  more »
  • A huge church in the centre of old city that is very nice. Didn't get a chance to go inside but from the outside it's majestic really and you have to visit it  more »
  • This church dates back 700 years or more apparently and is worth a look. It has grave markers on the floor dating back to the 1600s and an old ante room that looks untouched for centuries.  more »

  • The Sankt Petri Church is a large church in Malmö. Construction started in 1319. It is built in the Gothic style and has a 105-metre (344 ft) tall tower.
  • Classic church with a lot of history. For those used to churches with beautifully painted ceilings you might feel dissapointed but try to get behind that.
  • A very beautiful church from an architectural point of view and with a rich historical value.
  • Beautiful architecture. Outside seems like very old building. I think its the only catholic church in down town malmo.
  • I always liked churches that don't charge you admission.
