Meet Our Community of Expats in Malmoe and Get Connected!

Hej and welcome to Malmoe, Sweden's bridge to Europe! At InterNations we're here to support you in your relocation to this well-connected Scandinavian city, so feel free to join our network of global expatriates! We offer excellent resources to help Malmoe expats to get a feel for the city, including the opportunity to connect with dozens of members already living and working in southern Sweden. Our platform is the place where you can ask any questions you may have — such as how to navigate Sweden's notoriously difficult rental market, the best ways to take advantage of Malmoe's excellent public transportation links, and where to enjoy a good night out in the city. We hope you'll also take the time to share your own experiences of life in Sweden for the benefit of your fellow expats. A bustling and diverse city in its own right, Malmoe is much more than a handy bridge into Denmark, offering stunning Swedish harbor views and a thriving city center, offering expats a taste of Sweden at its most cosmopolitan and connected.

With InterNations, you never stand alone. Whether you move to another city or go on a business trip somewhere — our communities are there to make you feel at home wherever you are in the world. Feel free to also check out our other vibrant InterNations Communities like the ones in Singapore or Jakarta.

What Is Living in Malmoe Like for Expats?

Located at the southern tip of Sweden, Malmoe is the country's third-largest city behind Stockholm and Gothenburg, and acts as the capital and economic center of the Skåne Region. It is also Sweden's primary land connection to mainland Europe, thanks to the Öresund Bridge to nearby Copenhagen. Travel between these two cities is quick, inexpensive and easy — attracting many expats who choose to live in Malmoe but work in Copenhagen, or vice versa. This integration has revitalized the city, with many major Swedish companies making their home here. Key industries include construction, services, and software development, with a high proportion of start-up companies sharing the marketplace with larger organizations such as Skanska and E.On Sverige. Perhaps due to its strong continental connections, Malmoe is also known as Sweden's most multicultural city, with sizeable Middle Eastern, Baltic, and Balkan communities adding a unique flavor to the area. Expats looking for a distinct Swedish flavor will also be well served by a stroll through Gamla Staden (Old Town), or a visit to one of the city's two principle museums.
