#14 of 55 in Things to do in Malmo
Step right into the heart of the historic center of the city with a visit to Stortorget. The city's central square dates back to the 16th century and at the time it was built it was one of the largest in northern Europe. Next to an array of cafes, restaurants, and shops are some of the city's oldest and most striking buildings. Dominating the square are the imposing statues of King Charles X Gustav and the city hall with its distinctive Dutch Renaissance facade. The square functions as a venue for various live performances.

    From the station, this is the "gateway" to Malmö. There is a nice fountain and fine old buildings round about, among other things. Town Hall Pharmacy Leo. There is also an equestrian statue of King Karl X Gustav, and a hot dog stand, but they provide no greater joy.

    The main square is a city square with volume and grandure which are euroeiska cities. If it is kept open and clean. Now it's a anskrämligt snack bar in the middle of the square and otherwise very messy. Shame on the Town Hall and the other buildings around, who doesn't come into their own.

  • A great place for people watching in the middle but very quite all other seasons. Good place for a picnic lunch.
  • Very beautiful but not much was going on. We went on a Monday around 7pm and were just the two of us.
  • One off the main squares in Malmö, close to trains and busses, classic gathering point for start or end off a night out in Malmö, a lot off spontainoius facebook gaterings here when important stuff happens ( Sweden wins football ( soccer) World Champion)
  • nice central square, not so lovely is a nearby small market
  • Beautiful place close to everything in old malmo
