Sweden Daytrip: Lund & Malmö City Tour

Visit Sweden and see Lund & Malmö on this day tour to the core of Southern Sweden. Your local guide takes you around and tells you all about these twin towns, each other's contrasts and compliments.

Lund's great past once made it more Danish than Copenhagen and is today the town of wisdom. Your guide will tell you about the Vikings, who founded the town 1000 years ago. See the University and the goofy student events that defines Lund today. The guide will also show you the old Cathedral, once the most powerful place in Northern Europe.

In Malmö you visit the acclaimed Food Court, giving you plenty of options for lunch, such as Swedish meatballs. Your guide then gives you a walking tour of this every changing town and its unsentimental ways. You learn how you can get rich by bad book-keeping, what the Koreans mean by “The tears of Malmö” and see the landmark Turning Torso.

After the tour you have the option to stay in Malmö and explore it further in your own pace, or return directly.
