malmö central station Feb 19, 2009
Malmö Station was first opened in 1856, coinciding with the opening of the Malmö-Lund railway. At the time, the station was located in outer Malmö, near Copenhagen-bound ferries, which loaded and unloaded in the Inre hamnen right in front of the station building. The building was next to destroyed ten years later, 14 December, 1866, in a fire. When the building was reconstructed the bell tower was kept. That part, between the platforms and the square Centralplan was reopened in 1872.

More and more lines were built and consequently more and more tracks and train sheds were needed. The new train shed with four new tracks opened in 1891. Malmö-Kontinentens Järnväg from Malmö to Trelleborg was built in 1898. In 1926 Malmö Central Station became the station's official name.

The construction of Citytunneln is ongoing. A new station called Malmö Central Station Lower will be opened in December 2010 to make Malmö Central Station a transit station.
