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 station, you’ll find a shopping centre – also called Triangeln -just 20 metres from the station entrance. It has recently undergone a complete renovation and now boasts 150 shops, cafés and restaurants. New, cozy open areas inside the centre add to the atmosphere and gives you a place to rest comfortably between bouts of shopping.
The eastern part of the city also has a great deal to offer shoppers. Kv Caroli on Östergatan, 300 m from Malmö Central station, is another favourite shopping centre which has recently been fully reconstructed. Caroli offers a nice mix of trendy restaurants and shops, and the interior – full of light sources and green plant walls – will have you staying longer than intended.
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.
