Places to see in Malmö, Sweden
The Western Harbour in Malmö may seem like a boring industrial and business place at first sight. Once you walk through one of the business centres you’ll find an entirely new world though. If you like modern architecture, calm neighbourhoods and sea, for example, I’m sure you’ll like this place. A lot. Below I list some of my recommendations to see in this area of the city.
If you walk to the Western Harbour around the Malmö University and across the Klaffbron you will soon find yourself surrounded by big business centres. Behind one of those on the right-hand side there is this dock hidden. It took me a couple of years to discover it so make sure you don’t miss it too.
From there you can continue towards the famous Turning Torso. Essentially everything you see is brand new as this area of the city has been built during the past few years. On this small street called Klyvaregränd on your right-hand side there are some unusual terraced houses which I particularly liked.
After passing the Turning Torso you’ll find yourself on a nice short promenade. On the streets on its left-hand side there are more beautiful and colourful terraced houses.
Then you finally arrive at the beach. From there you have some wonderful views. Especially if the weather is nice.
You can, of course, walk along the beach as much as you please but once you arrive at the other end you can find this little dock and more stunning views and panoramas. Even though this post is dedicated only to the Western Harbour I recommend you to continue to the Ribersborg beach which is also beautiful.
These were a few of my favourite places in the calm, modern and beautiful area of Malmö, the Western Harbour. I do recommend you to keep exploring it and its surrounding neighbourhoods to find even more great locations.
