Copenhagen: Tour Across the Øresund Bridge to Lund and Malmö

Copenhagen: Tour Across the Øresund Bridge to Lund and Malmö

Admire the impressive Øresund Bridge, one of the longest bridges in Europe, as you journey from Copenhagen to Sweden. Discover the historical city of Lund, and use your time how you please in Malmö, Sweden's third-largest city. Begin your tour at the Hotel Astoria in Copenhagen, and travel across Øresund Bridge. Make your way to Lund, a city so old it dates at least until the Viking Age. Discover Lund Cathedral, whose construction was finished in 1145, and explore the tiny, cobblestoned streets surrounding it. Then, travel back down south to Malmö, and decide how you will spend your time. Find your bearings with your guide in the biggest square in Malmö, Stortorget, which appropriately means Big Square. Dine in a selection of Malmö's most popular restaurants in Lilletorget, or Little Square, located just behind Stortoget. Enjoy the Parisian feel, and see some historic buildings and a vintage telephone box. Or, head towards the north-west side of Stortoget to reach Sodergatan, Malmö's main shopping street and pedestrian walkway. Shop in the department store, Ahlens, or in many other quality clothing shops. Check out Stora Nygatan at the far end of Sodergatan too, as here you'll find the Hansa shopping mall. If culture is more your thing, take your pick from a selection of museums. Get a feel for the contemporary at Malmö Modern Art Museum, or dive into history at the Malmö Natural History Museum. The latter is located at Malmöhus Castle, which dates from the Renaissance and is also host to the Malmö Art Museum, whose collection spans the 16th to 20th centuries. Finally, marvel at the Turning Torso in Malmö, the tallest building in Scandinavia, before returning to Copenhagen. Please note that it is not possible to enter the Turning Torso, and entrance to the museums in Malmö is not included in the tour.
