In Kungsparken you find the award-winning City Library. The building consists of an older and a newer part which is interconnected with each other. The new part, "The calendar", was designed by Danish architect Henning Larsen.
On Stortorget – a stone’s throw from Malmö Central station is the Town Hall. The building was built in 1546, but has undergone major changes over the centuries. Helgo Zettervall (1860) transformed the façade of a Dutch Renaissance style.
In a different part of the big square lies Koc kska House which is one of Malmö’s best-preserved sixteenth century in red brick with a richly decorated stepped gable. Today it accommodates one of Malmö’s most well-known restaurants, Årstiderna (The Seasons), in the basement vaults. Behind the town hall you will see the tip of the St. Petrikyrkan, Malmö's oldest building from the early 14th century, built in Baltic brick gothic. Parts of the medieval paintings in the Church’s vaults were developed and restored at the beginning of 1900.
