The Malmö tramway is a former tramway network in the city Malmö, Sweden. A route of about 2 km (1.2 mi). has been built as a historic line.


The Malmö tramway existed between 1887 and 1973. It started service as a horsecar. The horsecars were replaced by electric trams from 1906. The last electric tram was replaced by bus in 1973.



Originally the service was provided by two-axle cars. From 1946 bogie cars were introduced on line 4 and from 1951-2, new two-axle cars were provided for the other remaining routes.[1]

By Malmöhus Castle and the adjacent technical museum, a heritage route[2] of 2 km. has been set up.
