Tour description

Cross Øresund Bridge to the cool city of Malmö, Sweden’s third largest city, on this independent day trip from Copenhagen. A mere hop, skip and jump from the metropolis of Copenhagen, Malmö is culturally different with a famously laid-back vibe. Enjoy free time to discover the city's charm at your own pace, perhaps perusing the cafes and shops of Lilla Torget, and enjoy a leisurely canal cruise with commentary, too. Small-group tour limited to fifteen participants, ensuring a more intimate experience.

Relax aboard your air-conditioned minibus on the journey out of Copenhagen, and get to know your small group. Your journey east lasts less than an hour and passes over the famous Øresund Bridge that connects the two countries. When you arrive, you will get handsout with walking route suggestions so you can explore the city on your own. Perhaps stroll around the two main squares of Stora Torget and Lilla Torget, or make use of the favourable currency and hit the Malmö shops. Pay homage to the city’s contemporary art scene with a visit to Moderna Museet Malmö, housed within a former electric power station, and marvel at its exhibits of modern art by Picasso, Dali, Matisse and more. Entrance fees to any attractions are at your own expense. A canal boat tour is included with your day trip, so, when the time comes, hop aboard a boat for your 1-hour cruise. Meander along canals and under bridges as you circle Malmö Old Town, and listen to a narrative about Swedish history and well-known characters, monuments and stories. In the late afternoon, return to your minibus and relax on your journey back to Denmark. Your tour finishes with a drop-off at the start point.
