Lund & Malmö: Guided Tour of 2 Countries in One Day

1. Lund & Malmö: Guided Tour of 2 Countries in One Day

Take a guided day trip from Copenhagen to the historic cities of Malmo and Lund in neighboring Sweden. Visit Hamlet's Castle, enjoy free time in Helsingør, take a boat ride across the Øresund, and explore the Lund Cathedral, before shopping in Malmo. Start your day of adventure by meeting your local guide in front of the Grand Hotel. After a short meet and greet, hop aboard your comfortable vehicle and set off on your day trip. Start your tour with a visit to Hamlet's Castle. Shortly after, take a scenic drive down the coastal road of Strandvejen and arrive in the charming old town of Helsingør, also known as Elsinor. Enjoy free time to stroll the streets of this beautiful city before boarding a boat to Sweden.  Set sail across the Øresund, traveling to the shores of Sweden. Upon arrival in Sweden, drive down the picturesque country roads to the ancient city of Lund. Visit the Lund Cathedral. Behind the Cathedral there is a chance to explore the tiny streets with houses that date back to the 1700s. Continue with a trip to Malmö with free time to do some shopping. With Sweden's lower purchase taxes this a great place to get bargains on goods to take home with you. End your tour back in Copenhagen, passing by the impressive Øresund Bridge on the return journey.

Copenhagen: Tour Across the Øresund Bridge to Lund and Malmö

2. Copenhagen: Tour Across the Øresund Bridge to Lund and Malmö

Admire the impressive Øresund Bridge, one of the longest bridges in Europe, as you journey from Copenhagen to Sweden. Discover the historical city of Lund, and use your time how you please in Malmö, Sweden's third-largest city. Begin your tour at the Hotel Astoria in Copenhagen, and travel across Øresund Bridge. Make your way to Lund, a city so old it dates at least until the Viking Age. Discover Lund Cathedral, whose construction was finished in 1145, and explore the tiny, cobblestoned streets surrounding it. Then, travel back down south to Malmö, and decide how you will spend your time. Find your bearings with your guide in the biggest square in Malmö, Stortorget, which appropriately means Big Square. Dine in a selection of Malmö's most popular restaurants in Lilletorget, or Little Square, located just behind Stortoget. Enjoy the Parisian feel, and see some historic buildings and a vintage telephone box. Or, head towards the north-west side of Stortoget to reach Sodergatan, Malmö's main shopping street and pedestrian walkway. Shop in the department store, Ahlens, or in many other quality clothing shops. Check out Stora Nygatan at the far end of Sodergatan too, as here you'll find the Hansa shopping mall. If culture is more your thing, take your pick from a selection of museums. Get a feel for the contemporary at Malmö Modern Art Museum, or dive into history at the Malmö Natural History Museum. The latter is located at Malmöhus Castle, which dates from the Renaissance and is also host to the Malmö Art Museum, whose collection spans the 16th to 20th centuries. Finally, marvel at the Turning Torso in Malmö, the tallest building in Scandinavia, before returning to Copenhagen. Please note that it is not possible to enter the Turning Torso, and entrance to the museums in Malmö is not included in the tour.

Step into the story and travel back in time for a walk through Lund as it was two hundred years ago. This audio walking tour invites you to explore the central parts of Lund with your digital guide; a criminology student at the university.

Travel back in time and experience Lund in a brand-new way!

My best friend and I recently visited Copenhagen for 5 days. We found this tour via Get Your Guide and we would totally recommend it. A great opportunity to see more of Denmark, as well as to hop over to Sweden and explore here as well. The tour is a good balance of an audio guide (on the bus) and independent free time to explore at each location. Good earphones and bottles of water are provided as part of the tour. We had Mario who was a great guide.

It was a great option to see more of Denmark an a little bit of Sweden. It was a very comfortable and safe trip. In each place you have time to look around on your own and eat. It’s a very nice tour.

this tour was very informative. We learned a lot about the history of Lund and Malmo. our guide was very knowledgeable and was very enthousiastic about everything he was telling. he knew a lot.

Great tour of two countries, highly recommend! Our guide/driver Stein was the best, can’t say enough good things about him!!

The bus ride was comfortable and there was a nice amount of time for each location.
