Malmo's Botanical Gardens "Slottstradgarden"

Malmö, Skåne County, Sweden
7 Kudos
Malmo has a beautiful city park just blocks away from the main center of town and the train station. It's called the Slottstradgarden and it contains a number of flower beds, bridges and ponds with frolicking ducks surrounding the moat of the adjacent Malmo Castle. It's the perfect place to take a stroll or a bike ride, especially in spring when everything is blooming and the fragrance is intense. The park also has a lovely Dutch style windmill on the southwest side of the grounds and is a nice place to chill out. There's even an old cemetery on the opposing end of the park (from the castle) if you're into that kind of thing (Oh I know my Father would be...he loves old cemeteries!)

Culture and experiences

Technology and Maritime Museum
Like everything else on May 1st in Malmo, it was closed due to a holiday.
Malmö Castle
Unfortunately this castle wasn't open the day I was there (May 1st) as it's a national holiday in Sweden.

Points of interest

Lovely park and gardens to stroll through next to the castle. Just minutes by foot from the train station.

Windmill on the southwest side of the castle grounds in Malmo.


Commandant's House Café
Commandant's House Cafe is a great place to sip on some Swedish coffee as it was a cool, overcast day.
