I am thinking of doing a trip to Malmo MMX in the Summer for about 3 full days.
I expect to hop over the sea to Copenhagen CPH as well.

What is there to do and see in MMX?

What to do and see in CPH?

Is it possible to use Denmark Kroner in Sweden and Sweden Kronor in Denmark?

The most important question! Do they speak much English over in MMX and CPH?
If they don't I am screwed because I can't speak Swedish or Danish.

I have visited CPH for a week, and also did a one-day visit to MMX while in CPH - by train. That ride alone is worth it, because of the famous Oresund tunnel/bridge connecting the 2 countries.

You can't use Denmark Kroner in Sweden and vice-versa, you really have to change your money, but it isn't too much of a hassle. English won't be a problem, almost everyone speaks English fairly well in both cities.

What to do? That's the hard part - there's so much that you won't be able to see everything. Both cities are very walkable, meaning that you'll bump into interesting things just by walking around. Or just stop by one of the many tourist offices and grab a guide.

I'm not a tour guide, and I'm sure locals will be able to tell you what to visit. But in CPH you certainly don't want to miss the Lille Havfrue - Little Mermaid, and the long, neverending walk-only streets with the many shops and restaurants. Also make sure to visit Tivoli Park.

Both cities offer those typical tourist city bus tours. I found them quite good to get an overview.

Have fun!

Well, I've lived for six month in CPH. And I enjoyed every day.
As Manuel already said there are many thinks to do. Crossing the Oresund from Malmo to CPH is a first highlight.
CPH itself offers a lot...

You are into amusement parks? Tivoli is in the heart of the city. It's one of the oldest amusement parks in Europe http://www.tivoli.dk/composite-3351.htm

You like beer? Visit the Carlsberg visitor centre and Jacobsen brewhouse, it's not unlike the Guinness storehouse in Dublin. They offer many special beers. I loved it...

Clubbing?

The Rust http://www.rust.dk/pages/english.php

Shopping?
The pedestrian streets "Str�get" in the city centre.
The Mall field's.

Sightseeing:
Of course you shouldn't miss den lille havfrue. Take the water-taxi - this is a regularly scheduled ship connection, which gives you the opportunity to see CPH from the channel - from den sorte diamant (black diamond - the royal liberary, which is also a sight) to the last station, which is close to the little mermaid. On the way back to the city centre you can pass Amalienborg, castle of the Danish royals, guarded by soldiers in historic uniforms (a sort of Danish Buckingham Palace). You can also sit down in one of the many cosy pubs at Nyhavn, a small habour (but beware the prices -tourist trap). Also Slotsholmen with the parliament and the old stock exchange is worth seeing.

Hi Aer Lingus!
Yes, everyone in Denmark (and I guess Sweden aswell) know how to speak english more or less, but mostly more . Even old people are able to communicate in english due to all the movies, music, etc. that we get from the english speaking world. We don't translate movies into danish, we only put subtitles on them in the bottom of the screen. I think you are able to use Danish kroner in Sweden and Norway aswell, but don't quote me on this, because I don't remember.

There are tons of things to do in Copenhagen: You should visit Tivoli (the very famous theme park in the heart of copenhagen), visit Amalienborg (The residence of the queen), visit the little mermaid, go and get a beer in Nyhavn, check out Kongens Nytorv, try our new subway, which was built not more than 3 years ago (and it is still expanding towards the airport, and other places), you should see the "black diamond" a very beautiful building which is used as the public library of Copenhagen, also, you should visit our new Opera house, it is very beautiful from the inside (or so I'have heard)

and there are lots of more things to do in Copenhagen.

edit:
sorry I just read above that apparently it isn't possible to use danish kroner in sweden, etc. Although I think that at a few places they do accept it.

Another thing you could do is visit Helsingør, which is 45 kilometers north of copenhagen and you can take the train directly from copenhagen and up there. It is a really cozy little city!

Plenty of info on the city itself here:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Malm%C3%B6

Malmo has lots of parks and green areas, and during the summer it can be really beautiful. Plenty of places to eat and drink, good variety of clubs and bars. All in all, a nice city.

Some more info:

Sure, we're concerned for our lives. Just not as concerned as saving 9 bucks on a roundtrip to Ft. Myers.

Another question.
How would I get from MMX - CPH? By bus or by train?
Do I need to purchase tickets in advance?

I recommend a train ride. There is a regular connection between both city centres - every 20 minutes. It's definitely the fastest and most convenient connection. The train needs about 35 minutes from Malmo central station to Copenhagen central station.

There are also ferries which cross the Oresund. But I can't comment on them.

The easiest way across to CPH is by train, go to the central station, there are trains every twenty minutes from Malmo to Copenhagen during the day. No advance purchase is required, as seats are normally not reserved. Tickets can be bought at vending machines located throughout the station, and AFAIK everything is marked in English as well as Swedish.

BTW the trains which cross the Oresund could be called booze express. Once I took an Intercity between Copenhagen and Lund and it was packed with Sweedes carrrying booze. But then I was also bringing along a crate of beer...  Wink

You're Irish, and so you like beer (I hope)?
Be sure to visit Lilla Torg in Malmoe and Strøget in Copenhagen... good places for a beer a warm summer evening.



Read between the lines.
