A couple of days in Malmö Monday, 22 August 2016

Posted by Ian Cole in Europe 2016, Ian C, The Ians on Tour.

After Berlin, the next stop for The Ians On Tour – Europe 2016 is Malmö for Saturday and Sunday, to visit with our friends Stefan and Raffe. 

We flew in to Kastrup Airport in Copenhagen from Berlin, then caught the train across Øresundsbron, the bridge/tunnel across the strait that separates Denmark and Sweden. Which was interminably delayed. 

After finally arriving at our hotel, the Savoy, just a short walk across the canal from Malmö Central Station, Stefan and Raffe came to meet us, to walk us to their new apartment for a night of food, beer, and wine. Lots of wine. 

Many famous people have stayed at the Savoy, as listed on a plaque in the foyer. 

On Sunday morning, feeling slightly dusty from the night before, we walked a bit around Malmö, before taking a boat tour of Malmö’s harbour and canals. Malmö is Sweden’s third largest city, with charming old squares in the centre and a lot of new development in the harbour area. 

Sunday afternoon it was back to Stefan and Raffe’s place for more beer and wine and a barbecue dinner on their terrace, overlooking Øresundsbron. On a clear day, you can see Denmark from their terrace. 

Thanks guys for the hospitality!

Today we’re on the Snälltåget train (in our own private compartment, thank you very much) to our final destination for this tour, Stockholm.
