Stortorget, which was built in 1547, offers a long history, from the beginning the square functioned as a market square where traders and citizens traded grain and animals that were to be shipped further south. In connection with the construction of the square, Malmö town hall was also moved to its eastern side and was during that time the largest in the Nordic region.
At Malmö central station, there are both buses and trains that can take you further. There are also restaurants, cafes, a toilet and a grocery store here.
