Karta över shoppingområden i Malmö

Stroll along the one kilometre long pedestrian street through the city and browse among inspiring design shops. Or start the day by taking the train south and arrive within minutes at Emporia, one of the Nordic region's biggest shopping malls.
Malmö has a vast range of shopping options, all within easy reach.

Shopping längs gågatan i Malmö

The pedestrian street from Stortorget to Gustav Adolfs torg

This historical area contains lots of cafés and small shops, exclusive branded clothing and Scandinavian furniture design.

The pedestrian street, “gågatan”, starts at Stortorget. The pedestrian area to the north is called Södergatan and is home to fashion stores such as Tiger of Sweden and Filippa K, combined with larger retail chains such as Zara and Lindex.

You can explore the intersecting streets of Baltzarsgatan and Skomakaregatan to find independent shops offering international fashion and Nordic design. If you’re looking for souvenirs, or a pair of hand-made slippers to put in your suitcase, you’ll find them in the picturesque Lilla Torg.

Just where the pedestrian street joins Gustav Adolfs torg is the Hansa shopping mall, with more than forty fashion stores, including both giants like H&M and smaller specialist outlets.

There are also good opportunities to buy interior design items and furniture in this area. The furniture company Svenssons i Lammhult, for example, boasts three floors of designer furniture in a former cinema on Södergatan. Also on the same street are Larsson Furniture and Bolia.

If you walk towards the west you find Form- och Designcenter in Lilla Torg, and if you turn into Engelbrektsgatan you’ll find Formargruppen, the design outlet Olsson & Gerthel and the furniture manufacturer Norrgavel.

The pedestrian street from Södertull to Triangeln

Clothing, footwear and interior design shops continue to dominate along the section from Södertull to Triangeln. This area offers good opportunities to take a break from the shopping and rest your weary feet in one of the many cafés. The oldest of them is the patisserie Hollandia, which has been serving delicious cakes and pastries since 1903.

Don’t forget to take a look at the charming area around Davidshallstorg, just to the west of the pedestrian street.  This has boutiques such as Gry alongside smart vintage shops and amusing design. At Aplace, Tres Bien, Meadow and Liebling you’ll find clothes from Sweden’s leading fashion designers.  And if you start feeling hungry, no problem – there are plenty of nice restaurants here.

Triangeln, Möllan and Mobilia

The Triangeln shopping mall has around 140 shops and restaurants. It houses clothing chains like H&M and Lindex, home electronics and smaller specialist shops. There’s also a train station here, so you can get to Emporia in five minutes (at Hyllie station).

If you like to buy second hand, there’s Humana, Myrorna and Emmaus Björkå on Södra Förstadsgatan heading south, towards Möllevångstorget. And why not nip into Friisgatan on the way there to visit one of the small, individual shops on that street? The area around Möllan has food from all corners of the world, and you can find spices and other ingredients to inspire you in the kitchen at home.

Two kilometres south of Triangeln is the Mobilia shopping mall. The best way to get there is by car, bike or Skånetrafiken’s city bus number 2. Mobilia has around 115 shops and restaurants.

Emporia shopping mall

Emporia is one of the biggest shopping malls in the Nordic region, attracting an average of 25,000 visitors every day. The building was designed by the Wingårdhs firm of architects and houses around two hundred shops on three large floors. Here you can buy Danish design, Italian fashion or the latest mobile phone – the range of shops is so large and varied that you’ll hardly manage it all in a day! If you need a break you can grab a coffee, enjoy a tasty meal, get your nails done or visit the hairdresser. And don’t miss the impressive rooftop terrace with its spectacular view.

Emporia is in the newly built district of Hyllie, which is only a few minutes by train from Malmö’s Triangeln station and the Central Station. (Buy a ticket before you get on board.)

If you have a car and want to buy furniture, home electronics or DIY products, you can drive two kilometres to the south to Svågertorp. This is where you’ll find popular stores like Ikea, Ilva and Bauhaus.

Organic shopping

Looking for a pair of non-toxic jeans or an organic skin cream? Here are a few places with a green attitude:

Uma Bazaar (near Gustav Adolfs torg) sells organic clothes, bags and shoes. IM Fair Trade (near Lilla Torg) sells Fair Trade clothing, some of which is also organic. Kafé Agnez is an organic café with tables outdoors, near to Kungsparken and Gustav Adolfs torg. You can find organic skincare products at Organic Beauty (Davidshallsgatan).

Another kind of environment-friendly shopping is to see what you can find at a flea market! Every Sunday from April until September, the tables at the flea market in Drottningtorget are piled high with used items. There’s a flea market for children in Folkets Park, offering clothes and toys at bargain prices, once a month from March until October.

Opening hours

The shops in Malmö have generous opening hours. You can find more than three hundred  shops in the city centre that are open seven days a week. The longest opening hours are in the Mobilia and Emporia shopping malls, both of which are open until 20:00 every evening, all year round.
