Malmo has Scandinavia’s tallest building, the aptly but curiously named ‘Turning Torso’. At nearly 650 feet tall, the view from the top would be incredible were it not for the fact there are no observation facilities. Still, it’s a great landmark for the city, seen from almost every part of it.
A fabulous all-round place to visit is Malmo’s castle Malmohus, which, within its 15th century walls houses a museum of history, an art museum, a terrarium and an aquarium. For the dads or science and technology buffs, try the Tekniska och Sjöfartsmuseet, where, a little like the fantastic cut away books, you can explore boats, planes and other machines with sections cut away. There’s even a submarine where, because of the headroom, you’ll find yourself uncomfortably crawling or stooping your way around. You’ll find the museum close to the castle and signposted from it.
