Relaxing

Some people may find the idea of a park which also acts as a cemetery not high on a place to visit, but i found it lovely. It's not very big and takes 10 minutes to walk from one end to the other, but it's nice to escape the noise of a busy shopping district sometimes.

Beautiful Cemetery
Sep 2018 • Friends
We came to visit the graves of my husbands great great great great grandparents in this beautiful cemetery. It was amazing to be able to find their plot, use the watering cans provided to water the plants in the fenced plot, and to just sit and feel connected. The old cemetery is so lovely and seems more like a park with all the lovely landscaping and lots of benches.

Old Cemetery used as a park
Apr 2018 • Solo
People in Malmo actually use this space as a park to stroll, run and relax. I visited it as part of the walking tour and learnt it's divided into different areas (you'll notice some gravestones are more expensive than others!!). It's an interesting experience to walk around it as it does not feel creepy at all!

Take time

Take time to walk around and look at the pretty gravestones. It dates back to 1822. There are some famous people buried in this cemetery, for instense Frans Henrik Kockum and Carl Gottreich Beijer. There are many places to sit and feel the peace that only a place like this can give, right in the middle of down town.

A pleasant walk through the cemetary
Aug 2016 • Solo
Gamla kyrkogården is an old cemetary in central Malmö. If you are in Malmö, you are likely to at some point be at Gustav Adolfs torg. If you are at Gustav Adolfs torg, this cemetary is right next to it, next to the bus stops.

It's not a big park, but it's a nice place to visit. Lots of old graves, some open areas and a part of the canal passing through it and a few benches if you want to rest your feet. You'll find lots of people just walking through the cemetary.
It's a nice park to stroll in, but it's much smaller than Kungsparken/Slottsparken.

There are guided tours of the cemetary that you can take where a guide will take you on a walk through the cemetary and tell you a little about its history and the people who are buried there. It's been a few years since I took the tour, but I think they're still in business and at least when I took it it was very nice and entertaining. If you're interested you might want to check it out.

pleasant enough
Feb 2017 • Family
On a walk back from the museum, via the park, you can end up entering this garden. It's lined with old burial plots. Its a nice alternative to walk through to get to and from the old town to the castle and transport museum.

Peaceful, calm and refreshing
Mar 2016 • Solo
I was in Malmo on a business trip, hence I didn't have much time to see the city, but I did have a few walks. This park/cemetery was very odd for me, because where I am from, cemeteries are not regarded as a place of recreation and fun walks, but more like grim places of grief and a fear of walking alone.
So this park was a very interesting new experience. Sure it had graves, but they were well taken care of, their design was pretty, historical..something about that place was mesmerisingly beautiful.. It was calm, yet there were people walking, it wasn't like it was abandoned or anything.. Quite a pleasurable experience.. It is amazing how the city managed to turn something like a cemetery in the heart of the city into an asset.
