Multi-cultural Malmö is a great place to explore with kids, with plenty of top attractions and things to do that will keep your little ones not just happy but filled with amazement. Here are our top ten things to do in Malmö with your kids.

Hylliekroken Golf Center

Located in central Malmö this 9 hole course is perfect for those who want a relatively quick tour of the links. If the kids haven’t tried golf before, there is an excellent golf academy where they can start their love affair with this perennially popular sport. An additional bonus of this day out is that the course stays open no matter what the weather.

Bulltofta Minigolfbana

If big people golf is a bit too, much head over to Bulltofta Mini golf which is the largest mini golf centre in southern Sweden. There are two 18-hole courses, as well as a small kiosk selling snacks and drinks. Be warned, though, Swedish mini-golf does not have the bells and whistles of mini-golf courses in some other countries. It’s really seen as something of a stepping stone into the big boy and girl’s game, so it’s definitely still challenging.

Malmö Chokladfabrik

The words ‘chocolate factory’ are sure to make any kid – and probably most adults – smile with delight. Malmö Chokladfabrik increases that delight by offering tours, tastings, and plenty of chocolate for sale to take with you when you leave. That they’re nut and allergen free and focus on organic and Fairtrade only increases the appeal.

City Boats

City Boats rents pedal boats on Malmö Canal, which runs through the city centre and several large parks, and it’s a great way for the kids to see the city from a different angle. Prices range from 100 – 250 SEK so it’s dead cheap – and it will exhaust the kids. You can book ahead but unless you’re a large group it’s not usually necessary.

Barnens Scen

At Folkets Park there is a round, yellow house that in a past life was a dance space. These days, though, it’s a house dedicated to children’s culture, offering theatre, dance, circus performances, and much more. The emphasis is on the performing arts and all children are welcome to take part in a variety of activities and events. In summer activities are moved outside to various stages around the park.

Busfabriken is an indoor jungle space, where the kids can jump, run, play, and generally work off all that pent up energy. There are climbing frames, suspension bridges, crawl spaces, giant balls, slides, ball pools, trampolines, an inflatable castle, multi-sport arena, air bazooka… and that’s just for starters. There’s also a daily show and a cafe offering everything from hot meals to snacks. And the best news? FREE WIFI! Perfect for all ages.

Malmö has a sizzling skate scene and there is no better place to thrown down your board than Stapelbäddsparken. The public skate park, opened in 2005, was a collaboration between the city and the skaters, is completely free, and consists of a bowl landscape and a street inspired area covering about 3000 square meters.
