  • On a rainy night in March, not in the square, in practice, no one, especially the tourists, so a comfortable experience to walk around in the old buildings. In the middle of the square, quite fine.

  • The main square of the Town Hall, Malmő and more beautiful buildings. In the square there are many statues, as well as a must-have hundreds of years of pharmacy.

  • A quaint cobbled square in the middle of town, you'd pass by when coming into town from the train station. Offers some views of local architecture with cafes and fast food nearby.  more »

  • Nice and large townsquare. Many events also take place here.
  • A great place for people watching in the middle but very quite all other seasons. Good place for a picnic lunch.
  • Beautiful square with really nice and beautiful buildings. The fountain is beautiful too!
  • It is a big square with lots of nice buildings. Sadly it does feel a bit empty or under utilized
  • Very beautiful but not much was going on. We went on a Monday around 7pm and were just the two of us.
