Malmöhus Castle in Malmö is the oldest surviving renaissance castle in Scandinavia and one of Sweden’s most popular museums. This castle has now, in fact, been turned into a virtual experience with Google Street View that anyone can experience from the comfort of their homes or preview before their visit.
Great virtual travel feature
Using a smartphone, tablet or a laptop, you will be able to go on a tour around the museum’s different royal rooms and exhibitions, and learn more about how Malmöhus went from being a Danish mint and royal palace to becoming a Swedish corrective prison and a museum.
The castle beholds hundreds of stories, some more famous than others but you will get a glimpse of a variety of them by clicking on items displayed within the castle and learning more about them. In short, all of the not-so-easily-accessible castle’s history is brought within everyone’s grasp thanks to this virtual tour.
First audio-visual tour in the Nordics with Google Street View
The tour is the first of its kind in the Nordics where it is implemented with the help of Google Street View. Unlike a traditional visit to the castle, the virtual visitors will have access to a number of rooms that are not normally open to the public.
