Travel: Malmö for Scandi shopping

by Jane Hayward on Thursday, 8 December 2011

Sweden's dinkiest city comes with a super January perk: sales in the Danish capital Copenhagen, a short train ride across the glacial Oresund Strait.

Stay snug Everyone from Lenin to Bjorn Borg has stayed at the Elite Hotel Savoy. A city hotel wrapped in a 14th-century manor house, it's a slip and a slide from shops, restaurants and the train station.

Icy action Malmö's winter hot spot is Lilla Torg, while Gamla Väster is boutique heaven. Take a day for Copenhagen's chic homeware stores – Normann's is a must (normann-copenhagen.com).

Chillax Ice-cool views of the Oresund Bridge make the trendy Western Harbour worth the cab ride. Thaw out with dishes such as venison with lingonberries at organic Salt&Brygga (£43 for three courses; saltobrygga.se).

What it costs Three nights from £477pp B&B, including flights to Copenhagen and train connections with Sunvil Discovery. Call (020) 8758 4722 or visit sunvil.co.uk
