Shopping centres in Malmö
In Malmö, there are plenty of options for people who want to do all their shopping in one place to save time and their legs. The city has a number of large, newly-renovated shopping centres with pleasant indoor environments and restaurants that add a little extra to your shopping experience.
In recent years, several new shopping centres have opened in Malmö, while the existing centres have been fixed up and renovated to take on the increased competition. This has made Malmö a real shopping gem!
The latest addition is Emporia in Hyllie, which, with its almost 200 shops and twenty or so cafés and restaurants, is Malmö’s largest marketplace. Behind the beautiful, curved glass facade you’ll find everything you could possibly desire in terms of shopping, distributed over three floors. Don’t miss the unique roof car park overlooking the Öresund.
At Triangeln, you’ll find a shopping centre of the same name just a few minutes’ walk from the station. It is currently undergoing a major renovation that will undoubtedly make Triangelns Köpcentrum a great complete experience in the heart of the city. Reopening is scheduled for 13 June 2013.
The eastern part of the city also has a great deal to offer shoppers. Caroli on Östergatan, 300 m from Malmö C station, is another favourite currently changing shape. The reconstruction is being undertaken in stages, but you can already feel the luxurious atmosphere of the bright new look, the vibrant green plant walls and trendy new additions such as restaurant Vapiano. Work is expected to be complete by the end of summer 2013.
And if you carry on down Östergatan and Östra Förstadsgatan a little way to Värnhem, you’ll find Entré, which opened its doors back in 2009 but is already something of a local classic. 70 shops, a cinema, restaurants, food stores, a gym and bowling alley make Entré an entertainment centre as much as a shopping centre.
A little further from the city centre, but still within walking distance, lies Mobilia, which offers a huge range and also 1250 (free) parking spaces. That makes it ideal for people visiting Malmö by car.
On the outskirts of Malmö lies Jägersro Center and bulk buying centres in Svågertorp, Bernstorp and Toftanäs. IKEA opened its climate-smart department store in autumn 2009 in Svågertorp – one of the largest in the world incidentally.
Most shopping centres are open until seven or eight in the evening on weekdays, five on Saturday and four on Sunday. See individual websites for more information, holiday opening times, etc.
