City Walk Malmö

From the herring trade in late 1200 to the Baltic exhibition 1914 and today – this guided tour will take you on a journey through 800 years of Malmö history.

Buildings of Malmö with a ray of sunlight

Welcome to join this walk and discover things you didn’t know about Malmö. We organize this activity in collaboration with Malmö University so half of the number of participant are international employees of Malmö University & their partners.

We will walk in the city's annual rings from the Herring trade of the Hanseatic period next to Malmö's first square, back in the days the flat sand beaches were full of fishermen bringing their catches ashore and salting the herring in barrels. We will learn about the Catholic Malmö and how and when the Latin school was founded, get details about the Danish Company House and the new Town Hall, built in 1546, located on Stortorget.

How did Malmö get its name? And how did it happen when Karl X became a statue in the city center? How did the new era of the Baltic exhibition and the Three Nordic Kings meeting 1914 influence the development of the city? And what impact had Suell's tobacco factory and the port to the World?

Join us and learn more about 800 years of Malmö history!
