Hike through Malmö history at its best! Through residential areas, on sidewalks and on a long beach promenade, you wander past an old shipyard, world-famous architecture, and rolling sand dunes with bathing piers that invite you to take a refreshing dip.

The walk goes through historical land, in the area around Västra hamnen and Dockan, Kockums began its shipbuilding industry in Västra Hamnen at the beginning of the 20th century, which continued for almost 100 years. Here stood the famous Kockumskranen, a 146-meter-high crane that until 2002 was a landmark for Malmö, but which was then moved to a shipyard in South Korea.

In recent decades, Västra hamnen has undergone major changes, the starting point being the housing fair Bo01, which was organized in 2001. In addition to the exhibition area, a brand new district with exciting architecture and two brand new bathing areas were built, which the whole of Malmö enjoys during the summer months.

Along the walk up to Riberborgsstranden, it is hard to miss Turning torso, the 190-meter-high residential building designed by the world-famous architect Santiago Calatrava.

Continue the walk along Ribersborgsstranden, or "Ribban" as it is often called. At the end of the 19th century, this was only a rocky and shallow place with a stinking smell of seaweed. But in connection with the construction of Slottsparken, a proposal was made for a beach promenade, which was completed in 1924. Along the entire beach, there are several bathing piers that invite you to take a refreshing dip. Here you also pass Ribersborg's cold bath house, which was inaugurated in 1898 and is one of Sweden's oldest and best preserved cold bath houses.

Walk on with a sea view to Naturum Öresund where you can learn more about the sea and life below the surface.

End the walk in the cozy district of Limhamn with its colorful fishing huts. Limhamn has a varied settlement where you can really follow the district's development from a fishing village and industrial community to today being an area where a lot of housing is built. Note the two silos sticking up, the plan is for them to become housing in the future.

Along the entire stage, there is proximity to public transport if you want to hop on and off along the stage.

Det saknas märkning ute vid gamla helikopterplattan i Västra hamnen en längre sträcka. Dessutom ligger det byggmaterial på kajen som inte går att passera så man får göra en omväg.
