MALMÖ - More than just "the other Öresund town"...



My trip to Copenhagen put me in the favorable position of being able to see two nordic cities on the same day, so I got myself an Öresundbillet and off I went in one of these super cool comfortable Öresund trains. (SJ on the outbound leg, DSB on the inbound)

Shortly before diving into the tunnel. You might not recognize it, but this plane is an aviation buff's delight. A 757 of Greenlandair, only to be seen regularly in Greenland and Copenhagen, so I just had to grab a picture of it.


The artificial island of Pepparholm that links the tunnel and the bridge:




The central station of Malmö. Right across the channel lies the stop of the Rundan boats that circle the city center. I jumped aboard.




My only Turning Torso pictures. It's overrepresented on SSC anyway, and Malmö is far to often reduced to TTTown...








There's not too much head space. These bridges would make for quite a spectacular suicide...














Back on safe soil, this is Stortorget:










Gustav Adolf Torget




Half an hour before, I had passed below that bridge.
















Lilla Torg
























All in all, a cute little town with an intersting architectural mix.
Fire away, it's your turn now. I rely on comments as they help me get (even?) better!




And this is the link to my COPENHAGEN pictures. Feel free to comment on them, as well, please!

You should had continued for the Turning torso and you would had seen the whole of Västra Hamnen which is a totally newly built area with lots of interesting architecture... But very nice pics indeed!

Great shots of M-town.
It seems you walked around pretty much everywhere "inside the bridges" (as we call it).
Skipping the essential Västra Hamnen (+Turning Torso) tour is very unusual for a day-trip-from-CPH-tourist - many times it's the only thing they do before going back to Copenhagen again.
I'm a bit dissapointed that you didn't venture further south, to the Triangeln and Möllevången parts of downtown. Anyway, you can do it next time.

Always lovely to see Malmö pics on these forums, especially in this quality. Thanks!

Perhaps I'm not the usual "day-trip-from-CPH-tourist"?
