Sightseeing by bike in Malmö

Interested in exploring Sweden by bike? Malmö is an excellent city for cycling and it’s a great way to explore the city sights at your own pace.

Malmö is without a doubt a bike-friendly city. In fact it was recently voted 6th The World's Most Bicycle-Friendly City in the world

We recommend renting a bike at Travelshop, located in central Malmö, and then making your way to the historical castle Malmöhus dating back to the 16th century. From there, you’ll pass beautiful city parks on your way to Emporia shopping center

Emporia is a great example of modern Swedish architecture thanks to its interesting hollow shape, rainbow garage and colourful interior design. From there, keep cycling to the Öresund Bridge abutment. The views from here will surely take your breath away! It is a great place for a picnic on the grass, while enjoying the view of the majestic Öresund Bridge connecting Sweden and Denmark. 

Keep cycling along the popular Ribersborg beach until you reach the Western Harbour and the twisted skyscraper Turning Torso - another excellent example of innovative Scandinavian design. From there, you are only minutes away from where you started and can return your bike.
