Currently, the official deadline for booking hotel rooms has passed and hotel rooms can only be booked via the regular market, either directly with the hotels or via online booking sites. If hotel rooms are not available anymore in Malmö, we can recommend hotels in the city of Lund, which is at short distance from Malmö, or in Copenhagen, from where the Malmö Arena and the city centre are easily accessible by train.
Opening of the booking system: 17th of January, 12:00 CET
Closing of the booking system: 5th of April
