The latest addition is Emporia in Hyllie, which, with its almost 200 shops and twenty or so cafés and restaurants, is Malmö’s largest marketplace. Behind the beautiful, curved glass facade you’ll find everything you could possibly desire in terms of shopping, spread over three floors. In the heart of the city you’ll find the pedestrian zone favourites Åhléns and Hansa citygalleria, whose exclusive atmosphere pervades all of the 60 shops in the building. Whilst at Triangeln station, you’ll find a shopping centre – also called Triangeln – just 20 metres from the station entrance, boasting 150 shops, cafés and restaurants.

Most shopping centres are open until seven or eight in the evening on weekdays, five on Saturday and four on Sunday. See the individual shopping center websites for more information and for Eater holiday trading hours.
