Malmo Getting Around
Malmo is a small manageable city, and getting around on foot is easy and pleasant, with most of the major city attractions within easy walking distance of each other.

The Malmö Card is available for 1, 2 and 3 days and is valid for one adult and two children under 16 - available from tourist offices and hotels.
