1. Wild swimming is the activity of choice at Ribbersborgs kallbadhus (Limhamnsvägen, Brygga 1). It’s free, but if you want to use their changing rooms and sauna, there’s a £5 charge.
2. Ryanair is now flying to Malmo from London Stansted and flights cost from £15.99 one way (including taxes and fees).
3. One of the trendiest eateries in the city is called Bastard and a three-course meal there (Mäster Johansgatan 11) costs around £35 per head).
4. The Swedes love to people-watch, preferably during fika . A great place to fika is at café Noir (Engelbrektgatan 6) where coffee and a cinnamon bun will set you back £5.
5. Lots of hotels will lend you a bike free of charge, but if yours doesn’t, you can rent a bike at Rundan Kanalbåtar (Norra Vallgatan) for £14 for 24 hours.
