Modern Malmö

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Sweden’s third greatest city Malmo is situated on the southern tip of the country near the bridge to Copenhagen. In summer time, the water side is especially beautiful. Once an uninhabited industrial area, the Western Harbor in Malmo is now an attractive place to live and work or visit, a hip quarter of cafés, restaurants, art galleries, architecture and a few boutiques.

The neighbourhood is located next to the 3 km long Ribersborg Beach, or “Ribban” as locals call it, where adjacent green spaces invite to rest, play and activities. On the other side of the canal, a walking path leads to Sundspromenaden created by Danish landscape architecture Jeppe Aagard Andersen. This promenade along the sea is lined with trendy architecture, which is part of Malmo’s environmentally sustainable housing project Bo01.

Further to the north is Daniaparken that opens towards the sea and makes the link to the Scaniaparken. Here you can stroll out and admire the view, feel the sea and the wind, or find shelter from the wind behind the stonewall. The theme of Daniaparken are Senses, with the end at the Big Ramp which leads up towards the Stone Table - an open site, exposed to all the whims of nature.
