Quite an impressive church

The church is open from 10 to 18, so it is quite easy to go inside and have a look. Very central, in the heart of the old town.

The architecture of this church is amazing, but once I came inside I was disappointed. it was poor and nothing special and it's a pity since it's one of the most popular attractions in Malmö.

This is a wonderful, actively used building. The design is very interesting. The church sits right in the middle of a shopping district, and you can see it from all over the city. Construction on this building was started in 1319, and you can see how additions were made to it throughout the centuries. It's generally a Gothic style building... More

We walked around the outside and it's beautiful. Went in and they were preparing some performance from school kids. So we didn't want to disturb them too much and just walk around a bit . It was very nicely renovated inside.

Lovely church that is easy to find, open hours are sometimes difficult but it is worth it to take a little look inside. It may not be the most incredible but it is still lovely to see it when visiting Malmo.

Well worth finding time to visit as the outside is not nealy as attractive. Opening hours can be limited as it is a working church.

St Petri is the oldest church building in Malmö and the oldest one built with brick. Dating from the 14th century the interior has been remodeled several times during the 700 years. Not in any way particular in appearance or architecture, St Petri should nevertheless be seen if you're in Malmö. All the churches in Malmö are a part of... More

In a town of so few items of true tourist worth its hard to get too excited about this church as it's not that amazing in any particular way. It was one of the top 10 things to see in Malmo

We visited this church on a Monday within the publicised opening times and it was not open. This was disappointing. It is, however, worth a visit to look at the architecture from the outside.
