Enquire within the shop for further details at the time of purchase. Also note that the Malmo City Card does offer a variety of discounts in a number of shops.

Where to Shop

Whilst the Little Square (Lilla Torg) may be known in Malmo for its outdoor eateries, it is also close to many shops, which line the connecting streets. Even if you are not looking for gifts and souvenirs, you can enjoy a pleasant afternoon's window shopping.

Shopping in Malmo city centre is easy, since all of the shops are quite close to each other and can be easily reached on foot. Apart from the Stortorget, also look out for the shops around Gustav Adolfs Torg, the Stora Nygatan and also along the Ostra Rönneholmsvägen and the connecting Södra Förstadsgatan, where the Triangeln Shopping Centre (Triangelns Köpcentrum) resides, home to a good branch of the Guldfynd jewellery store, which is worth keeping an eye out for.
