There's a small square near the Radisson in old town that hosts a second hand fair, or flea market on Saturdays.
I spent a little more than 3 weeks in the southern coastal city of Malmo, Sweden's second largest city.
There's two major squares here, "Big Square" and "Little Square (Lille Torg)". In big square there's much parking and shops, little square has all the restaurants and bars. Fun place, Sushi, Thai, Steaks, etc...YUM!
There's a beach area on the eastern part of the city, but I was there April-May and it was a bit cold for the beach. I stayed in the Radisson in old town, "Gamla Stan" and it's a good place to stay. I preferred this as it was walking distance to most locations, you don't want to have cocktails and drive; Sweden is very strict in that way! The Hilton is further north in the cosmopoitan part of the city and closer to businesses.
If you have the time to travel there, don't fly into Malmo airport, fly to Copenhagen! There's a high speed train that links Copenhagen airport and Malmo central station, it's cheap and convenient. In Malmo old town there is a Hertz rental office (that's open sort of banker's hours). It's a fun place!
