Hotels in Malmö

Savoy Hotel - Malmö

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. The award winning area of the Western Harbour is also a must do, with sandy beaches and long promenade, restaurants and cosy cafes, complemented by a stunning view across the sea towards Copenhagen. This hotel is just a couple minutes walk from central station. [map]

The castle, which has been owned by the Tham family since 1824, was praised in the writings of world-famous Swedish botanist and traveller, Linnaeus. The present building, built in 1875, and its grounds offer a myriad of opportunities for enjoyment, cultural and outdoor. The restaurant attracts guests from miles around and the chefs are award winning! When staying here we recommend you ask for an upgrade to the main building. [map]

Simply Sweden Recommendations
A walk in the gardens or sit on the terrace and enjoy the view. One of the best restaurants in Skåne. The historic univeristy city of Lund is just a short drive, as is Ystad, made famous by the Wallender TV series. Wallakra Pottery is also well worth a visit.


Ängavallen - Skåne

Welcome to Skåne and welcome to the Swedish countryside. At Ängavallen you will stay in a comfortable hotel on an organic farm, close to the coast and the city. Ecology and gastronomy go hand in hand here. At Ängavallen the animals are treated with the greatest respect. The fact is that the way in which they are reared is unique throughout the world! As human beings we can also enjoy the beautiful countryside, but at the same time we are able to capture the aroma of the herb garden's produce to be used in the restaurant along with raw materials from the farm. You can buy your favourite foods in the farm shop to take home with you. [map]

Simply Sweden recommendations
Ängavallen garden and farm is a big attraction so you won't have to travel far! From here it's easy to visit Malmö, Copenhagen, Falsterbo and Ystad. You'll find sandy beaches along the southern coast. Horse riding and walking are available locally.

The naval base and ship yard are still in use today and Karlskrona is home to Sweden's naval fleet.

A myriad of beaches and bathing spots are located in the city centre and scattered across the 1,650 or so islands of the Karlskrona Archipelago, which is well served during the summer by boats departing from the city centre harbour. Other activities & attractions include the Marine Museum and The Admiralty Church (Sweden's largest wooden church).
