Visit the Eurovision host city of Malmö, Sweden with our tips🇸🇪

We weren't very familiar with Malmö in Sweden, but we thought we would look closer since it is hosting the Eurovision. We checked to see if it was worth visiting, the easiest (and cheapest) way to get there, where to stay, and what you can do once you're there.

After researching Malmö, we're pleasantly surprised, and it is now on our list of places to visit.🙌

About Malmö

Malmö is Sweden's third-largest city (after Stockholm and Gothenburg) and is located on the coast in southern Sweden.

You will find stunning parks, historic buildings, museums, shops and, of course, restaurants and bars.

Football fact⚽️: Malmö FF is the most successful football club in Sweden, and the only Nordic football club to have made it to the European Cup final.

Getting there

We had a hunch that there would be no direct flights to Malmö from the UK, and we were right.

However, we did think you would most likely fly into a different Swedish airport and make your way on from there. Wrong.😯

It is actually easiest and cheapest to fly into Copenhagen and then Malmö is around 30/40 minutes by train. You can also take a bus or rent a car and drive over if you wish.

You can fly direct to Copenhagen from London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol for super cheap prices.

Where to stay

There are the usual choices of accommodation when it comes to booking a city break. You can stay in hostels, hotels, apartments, Airbnb's and even go glamping.

We picked out our favourites:

4⭐️ Hotel Garden: The hotel is in a central location near the main square, central station and shops. Rates include breakfast, and the hotel has a bar, restaurant and sauna.

4⭐️ Hotel Radisson Blu Malmö

If you want a well known brand, you can't go wrong with a Radisson Blu Hotel. This hotel is also centrally located, with lots to see and do nearby. The hotel has a restaurant, bar, sauna, gym and offers room service.

Things to do

You will find all the usual suspects in Malmö, such as bars and restaurants. We also noticed there are a lot of escape rooms. We hunted out some other cool things to do.

  • City tours - Pick between a guided or self-guided tour. There are lots of different ones, including a ghost tour and an 'Insta-perfect' tour.📸

  • Sightseeing boat tour 🛥️

  • Food tour 🍴

  • Disgusting food museum 😝

  • Enjoy a Malmö FF football match at Eleda Stadion ⚽️

Our conclusion

We think Malmö is definitely worth a visit.

If you don't want to stay there for a full trip, you can do a double-city trip and stay for some of your time in Copenhagen.

Or, if you plan on visiting Copenhagen, you could always do a day trip to Malmö as it is so close and cheap to get there.


  • Hotel stays available under £50 per night

  • One way flights from UK available from £15

  • The train between Copenhagen and Malmö from £12
