Malmö is one of the largest cities in Scandinavia and is a great place for a family break. There are many activities to keep your kids entertained and also to tire them out!

Many of the playgrounds in Malmö are themed, so you could visit an activity themed playground, a fairytale themed playground or even an African themed playground. The fairytale playground is in Slottsparken and is best suited to young children, if your children are older, the Spiral playground next to Malmö Konsthall will keep them busy for hours. If slides are what the kids want then the Solar playground at Western Harbour is worth a visit, plus you can take in the sights of the harbour afterwards.

Believed to be the oldest public park in the world, Folkets Park is hugely popular with visitors and has enough entertainment on offer to keep children and adults occupied for days. There really is something for everybody in Folkets as it boasts ice skating, an amusement park (though it is small), many playgrounds, crazy golf, a mini farm and even a paddling pool.

The Malmö museum has plenty to do and see for all the family. The attractions are diverse and you can expect to discover everything including a real submarine, flesh eating piranha and the oldest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. The most recently added attraction is Idéplaneten which is an area for visitors to learn more about the future of the planet and lots of everyday facts that will amaze you.

You can pretend this one is for the kids, but if you have a sweet tooth Gottelisa is heaven on earth. They have almost every type of sweet imaginable and whilst the kids are filling their own little treat bag you are sure to be doing the same! If ice cream is what you are looking for then head to Lilla Glassfabriken, it will be a challenge to think of a flavor that they don’t offer!

Malmö is very family oriented and most of the restaurants will offer varied menus that cater to families, and you will normally find that there is lots of room for you to park the buggy if you have one! If you are near the Hansa shopping center then the food hall in the basement is very popular with families.

Other popular attractions in Sweden include the midsummer celebrations in Leksand near Lake Siljan. In June, people from all over Sweden gather to watch church boats carry participants who are wearing traditional Swedish attire. They row into town on their boats and then dance on a Maypole. If you are planning on visiting more places in Scandinavia, the Oslo to Bergen Railway is a common top travel attraction in the region. In Sweden other attractions include the Akerblads hotel, one of the oldest in all of Sweden in the tiny village of Tallberg. This 15th century village is packed with traditional Swedish colors from the era in a stark bright red paint. If you are thinking of visiting Sweden, most airlines fly to Stockholm Arlanda, but some specialist airlines fly further inland to more remote locations. Stockholm is a good safe first choice as you can always catch a train to Dalarna or Malmö. Dalarna means ‘the dales’ in Swedish and is a popular holiday home location to visit.
