Sweden Daytrip: Lund & Malmö City Tour
The guide will pick you up by minibus in central Copenhagen. From there we go across the magnificent Øresund Bridge en route to Sweden. Arriving in Lund, we learn about the Vikings, who founded the town more than a thousand years ago, and see several of their monumental Rune Stones. This is followed by looking at part of the University and the goofy student events that the entire place centers on today. We finish off Lund by a visit to the medieval Lund cathedral, once the seat of the largest Christian archdiocese in the world, before we head off to Malmö where you can have lunch in one of the town's many trending restaurants.
After lunch we hear the story of Malmö, a place that is the constant underdog. Malmö painstakingly works its way up to be wealthy and important, only to crash as the rug is pulled from beneath its feet, for the process to start all over again. The tour covers a church that could qualify into the Monty Pythons, how you can get rich by bad book-keeping and what the Koreans mean by “The tears of Malmö”. We end the tour among the skyscraper in “Malm-hattan” and an excellent view towards Denmark.
After the tour you have the option to stay in Malmö and explore the town independently, and then travel back by the fast and comfortable direct train to Copenhagen. The all day train ticket is provided by your guide, while the 35 minutes journey departs 3 times per hour and is the quickest way to get back to Denmark.

Cecilia was great, very knowledgeable of history and polite. Picked up us from Copenhagen on time, drove through the Oresund bridge took us to Sweden side. Lund which is historical, with beautiful 'older' architectural buildings, and Malmo, which has both old and modern style building and beautiful view of the ocean and Oresund bridge. She brought us to local food market for delicious to meat balls and potatoes for lunch, walked us to Malmo city center and showed us the train station. Tour ends around 3:00 pm, since the train ticket is good for the entire day, I had the entire afternoon to browse the surrounding stores, carnival rides, church before heading back to Copenhagen. Word of advise: Choose the 1st class ticket back to Copenhagen when booking this tour, it's only a few euros more than standard ticket price, can enjoy some quietness on 40 minutes train ride back.
Such a great tour! Petra was our guide and she was very friendly and knowledgeable. She gets 5 stars! I liked how we had will the freedom to continue exploring Malmö at the end of the tour or to hop on the train back to Copenhagen. The Swedish meatballs she recommended for lunch at the food bizarre was delicious. I will definitely recommend this tour to my friends as a fun activity for the day!
Our guide took us all over and explained lots of history about these cities. Wonderful tour with lots of time to ask questions and strool along the beautiful streets and seaside
Great way to add a quick trip to Sweden when you have a short trip, we had a blast.
Anna gave us a great taste of Sweden while we were visiting Copenhagen. In six hours she provided a great general overview of Swedish history, culture, architecture and food.
We had a great time on this tour. The guide did a great job explaining the areas we visited and was entertaining. The tour was laid out well and used our time efficiently. I would recommend this to individuals who want a little exposure and explanation of Sweden.
Amzing day trip into Sweden. Lots of history. Our tour guide Petra was vwery nice and took us to all the main places.
Other than a little hiccup prior to the start of the tour that end up starting the tour a little late otherwise the rest of the tour was wonderfully managed. The guide knew Lund and Malmo cities very well and provided us with a very comprehensive historical review of the various locations and sites in both cities.
