Do you want to explore Malmö with a top rated Free Tour?

You’ve come to the right place! Since summer 2016 we have showed people around the city of Malmö and we have loved every single walk – come join us!

Sightseeing has never been more fun and affordable! We take you around the main sights of the city center on a walking tour that lasts roughly two hours, while we explain the history and contemporary life of the third largest city of Sweden. Your experienced guide will share the hidden gems and stories with you, and you will leave Malmö full of information and with a greater understanding of how this city came to be and what makes it so special.

The tour is free of charge but tips are greatly appreciated. At the moment all our free tours are in English, but in summers we aim to offer Spanish tours as well.

The meeting point

Our meeting point is the statue of Charles X Gustav on Stortorget in Malmö, just a short walk from the central train station “Malmö C”. 

To identify your guide: Look for the light blue umbrella, a folder with our logo and the person with the biggest smile holding it!

How does it work?

It’s easy – just register and show up at the meeting point for your tour at your booked date and time. We ask you to please register so that we know how many people to expect in our effort to keep the group size below 30 participants per guide. 

Our tour lasts for roughly two hours (depending on guide, weather and group size) and is circular, we start on Stortorget and we end on the centrally located Lilla Torg. The walk is roughly 4,5km in a leisurely pace. 

The tour operates according to the popular free tour concept – there is no fixed fee but we appreciate tips!

You don’t need to bring any booking confirmation, but make sure to wear comfortable shoes, have a water bottle – and if necessary an umbrella or sun screen with you. 

We don’t enter any buildings along the way, the whole tour takes place outdoors. The whole tour is wheelchair and stroller accessible, although some parts have cobblestone streets.

Jennifer was fabulous! Her English was perfect and she delivered the stories and history of Malmö clearly and interestingly for two hours. These free walking tours are excellent and a great way to get to know a city. What a wonderful concept that you can pay what you feel the tour is worth and what you can afford.

Our tour with Kristina was from my perspective a model walking tour. It was a pleasure. Kristina was very nice, smiling all the time, her energy was contagious. I've been to a lot of this sort of tours but only a few times did I have a guide who was able to share historic facts in such a breezy and interesting way. It seems that guiding just comes effortlessly to her.

Our guide was super informative and funny. You could tell that she was in love with Malmö by the way she talked of her city, which is what I like in a walking tour because it is contagious. I ended up loving Malmö as well and learning about its history was very interesting. She also recommended some great places to eat falafel and cinnamon buns, which I loved.

What should I wear?

We run the tours regardless of weather (if at all possible). Make sure to check the weather forecast and dress accordingly. We won’t go inside any buildings so be prepared to walk outside for two hours.

It depends very much on the season and which day of the week you are attending, but we try to keep the group size at 30 maximum. We don’t have any minimum requirement – if one person comes to explore Malmö with us, we do the tour.

Generally yes, as long as it is calm and friendly. We will ask you to please respect anybody that expresses discomfort around your pet and to keep a distance if necessary.
