Fun for the whole family awaits in the wholesome and beautiful city of Malmö this summer. Exciting activities and outings for kids of all ages makes this city a must destination for families who love to discover together. We have gathered five fun-filled family things to do and see while visiting this Swedish gem, including an international excursion.
Big joys of mini golf
Bond with your entire family with a friendly, yet competitive game of mini golf. This may be a miniature version of golf, but that does not mean grown-ups and kids alike wont still feel equally challenged. The two 18-hole courses at Bulltofta Minigolfbana will delight all players for hours in a wonderfully green area. Bring a blanket and buy some snacks and drinks at the on-site kiosk for a relaxing post-game picnic in the sun.
The Malmö Chocolate Factory
Brace yourselves to explore the tasty wonders of Malmö’s Chocolate Factory. Take the guided tour and learn all about the factory’s humble beginnings and 120 years of chocolate history. Treat you and yours to a tasting afterward and buy delicious chocolate in the historic factory outlet boutique. Remember to book your tour and tasting in advance and surprise your kids with a real chocolate factory trip that is truly out of this world.
The People's Park
Take the family to visit the oldest folk park in the world and enjoy an active day with locals and other tourists. While older kids can enjoy many of the cultural experiences and adventure golf, the smaller children will be entertained for hours at the popular playground. The best part? Entrance to the park is free and fun for everyone.
Malmö by boat
The many canals of Malmö create the perfect setting for an exciting outing. Get in some exercise and explore the many sides of the city by rented pedal boats. Discover the renowned charm of Sweden through the wonderfully colorful houses and beautiful bridges. While the grown-ups will appreciate the architecture and scenic surroundings, the kids can enjoy the activity itself and being the captains of their own little adventure.
Two cities in one trip
While Malmö is full of fun and quaint cobblestone charm, its proximity to another Scandinavian gem means you can explore two countries in one trip. Drive across the amazingly engineered wonder that is Öresund bridge or take the train directly to Copenhagen city center.
Spend an entire day in Tivoli amusement park across the street from the Central Station. During the summer, the park features concerts and pantomime shows to entertain the whole family in-between various wild rides and games.
