Marvel at the simplicity of St. Petri (St. Peter's Church), a large house of worship built in the Gothic style in 1319. The grand brick exterior is complete with a 105 m (344 ft) tower and surrounded by stone carvings. In contrast, the interior features simple white walls that enhance the ornate fixtures and altar. One section of the ceiling has been restored to the original painted mural. As the oldest building in the city, the church provides a haven for quiet retreat. An informational pamphlet is available at an additional cost. To visit St. Petri (St. Peter's Church) on your holiday in Malmo, and find out what else Malmo has to offer, use our Malmo.

Take a look at the universal clock calendar and how walls were painted when Sweden was a Catholic monarchy. After Reformation & Lutheran doctrines every bueuty ornament was turn down and painted over in white. Still a great magnificent church for Swedish standards :-). The new renovated organ sounds amazing. Great concerts on weekends for free.
Was there a year ago and watch an organ show. Sounded amazing with the big organ. Just make sure you find a good seat so you can sit and watch the instrument, sit close the the front of the church and turn the other way so you can see the back.
