As the oldest castle in Scandinavia, Malmohus castle stands as a beautiful red brick fortress and adjoins the castle built in the 1530s. An important stronghold of Denmark, this castle-turned-prison tells the story of its captives. For five years the castle imprisoned Mary, Queen of Scots' third husband, James Hepburn, 4th Earl of Bothwell. Today the castle is home to a museum of ancient art, modern photography, taxidermy, and prison cells for touring. Limited signage is provided in English.

  • I enjoyed castle visit. Expositions are great. Price is very reasonable. Aquaria were interesting also for kids. And on the yard they had special Robin Hood-themed program for children. Way to go Malmö Castle!
  • The oldest Renaissance castle in Scandinavia. The part of the fortress is also a Malmö museum. To enter the museum, you need to buy a ticket (no need to buy it in advance, there were no waiting lines). On the information board was written that in the dark/late evening you can see (projecting) silhouettes in some of the windows.
