MalmoHus Castle Virtual Tour

Malmöhus is a fortress located in Malmö, Scania, in southern Sweden. The first castle was founded in 1434 by King Eric of Pomerania. This structure was partially demolished in early 16th century [1], and a new one was built in its place in the 1530s by King Christian III of Denmark. Historically, this fortress was one of the most important strongholds of Denmark.

The Virtual Tour is a collaboration between Department of Culture in Malmö and Expedia Sweden.

Project started mid-last year in 2015 and launch in December 2015.

The tour is free for everyone and easily viewed on any platform from web, mobile and tablet.
