Christmas Shopping - 3 cities + 2 by train
Christmas shopping in 5 cosmopolitan and seasonal cities has never been so easy. Just make sure you bring a spare suitcase! At this time of year the streets are lined with warming candles, an impressive array of Scandinavian design, traditional gifts and famous Christmas markets. Cozy cafes and delightful restaurants offer traditional Christmas tables (Julbord) and pepparkakor (traditional biscuits). Just some of the features include Stockholm's Gamla Stan (Old Town), Gothenburg's Christmas Market at Liseberg and Malmö and Copenhagen combine to provide a cross border shopping extravaganza! Travel around 13th December for a chance to see a Lucia concert.
Days 1 to 3
The construction of the Öresund Bridge has brought prosperity and
diversity to Malmö and the Skåne region. As you cross the bridge towards
Malmö you have an amazing view of Malmö and the Turning Torso, Sweden's tallest building.
Many good shops, bars and restaurants line the pedestrianised areas and Simply Sweden recommends a visit to Lilla Torget and Saluhallen. Malmö has a large variety of shops and market stalls for Swedish inspiration and with Copenhagen just 30mins on the train, Danish inspiration is almost on your doorstep.
You will be accommodated in one of Malmö's leading hotels, the 4 star Savoy Hotel, just a couple minutes walk from central station.

The train between Malmö and Gothenburg takes you along the stunning West Coast of Sweden and through
