This historic castle dates back to the 16th Century and is an icon of southern Sweden, especially Malmö. Built by the Danes, it has served as a military fortress, a prison, an armory and now houses two museums, both administered by the city. Konsthallen, is the city's primary art museum, while the other the Stadsmuseum, is the repository of artifacts and information pertaining to the city's rich history. Both museums can be visited in a day, but the castle itself is a unique piece of history and architecture and also provides beautiful views of the city and the waters of the Öresund.
