To do in Malmö between Christmas & Epiphany


Festive, fun and family-oriented! As 2023 turns into the 'Eurovision year' of 2024, the city of Malmö becomes a glowing Insta spot. Outdoors, the bright Winter in the City, the sparkling Winter Dream in Folkets Park and the majestically illuminated Öresund Bridge will fight the forces of darkness. And there are plenty of highlights indoors too...


New Year’s dinner? Thank you very much, Miss Sophie! In a foodie paradise like this, many restaurants offer the opportunity to start the year off in a yummy way.

Spegeln is all Malmö’s local cinema, and fully licenced too. On 31 January the Berlin Philharmonic New Year’s Concert rings out the old year, live on the big screen. Magnificent!

The Malmö Live concert hall welcomes the new year in style. On 5 January, there’s a glamourous Vienna Opera Ball and on 12 January, The Nutcracker ballet comes alive on stage.


The new hi-tech arena Wisdome at Malmö Museum includes a 360° dome cinema where the award-winning Making Magic 3D gives you the opportunity to see dinosaurs “in the flesh”! Impressive.

Meet Encanto’s Mirabel, sail away with Vaiana, bring back summer with Anna and Elsa… in Disney On Ice at the Malmö Arena. (11-14/1)

Ingela Ihrman’s exhibition Frutti di Mare at Malmö Konsthall has attracted considerable media attention. With both humour and seriousness, she tries to capture the essence of humanity. (Until 14 January)

The acclaimed international exhibition Van Gogh Alive ends on 14 January. Visit MalmöMässan (the city fair) before it’s too late, and step right into sunflowers and starry skies. Unforgettable!

Funnys Äventyr, or Funny’s Adventures, is a modern, high-quality fairy tale world where small and big children can play and interact with Moomin, Pettson and Findus, Alfie Atkins and other of their friends. Open 7 days a week during the school holidays!
