Malmö : Michelin's recommendations
Malmö is a lively cultural centre, proud of its theatre and horse festivals. It is worth visiting Möllevångstorget for its fruit and vegetable market, and Banérskajen, lined with ancient fishing huts, where you can buy fresh fish. A ring of canals (early 19C) borders the old town, and the centre has preserved its medieval character. The most interesting squares are Stortorget and Lilla torg. Be sure to visit the various museums and the Krämarkapellet (tradesmen’s chapel) in St Peter’s church.
