Family fun in Malmö


The summer of 2022 will be magical!

Visit an outdoor shooting of a Swedish TV show right after breakfast. Say hi to Moomin & co around lunchtime. And finally steer your own electrical boat on the canals in the evening, dressed up like pirates. An ordinary summer day in Malmö, in other words!

To be able to visit the set of legendary Sommarlov (“Summer Holiday”) and see its playful hosts in full action is on the bucket list of many young Swedes. And like every year, it’s in the lovely Beijers Park in Malmö that those TV dreams come true. This summer’s morning show runs on Swedish public service television until August 19, and anyone can follow the adventure on site for free between 9 and 11 o’clock on weekdays until August 11. As a tourist, this can be a fun way to meet and interact with Swedish families. Amongst other attractions, the big park also hosts an animal themed playground and a cosy café.

The Malmö magic continues at Funnys Äventyr (Funny’s Adventures) – a modern (2020) cultural centre for kids located close to the Mobilia shopping mall. It’s all about a high-quality, interactive fairytale world with enchanting environments where families can meet up with characters such as Moomin, Alfie Atkins, Alice in Wonderland, the Little Mermaid, Aladdin … only to name a few. If you run out of energy, there’s always the café. And on your way back, some of the magic is for sale in the shop.

Nice to know: The Malmö Arena Hotel offers a Funny-themed playroom for the little ones and special Funny packages, with accommodation in family rooms, breakfast, free parking, and admission to Funnys Äventyr.

In the bright summer night city, you and your family may discover Malmö from the canals in easy-to- use electric boats. Book your boat online, start it with your mobile phone and drive off. The boats feature a small table in the middle – perfect for picnics. Want to add something extra? Upgrade your cruise with the Treasure Chest, filled with fun hats, pirate stuff and other props for perfect family selfies on the canal! Book A Boat is located close to the railway station.
