The starting point of this StoryTour. The story of Karna Möller is sometimes also referred to as “The haunting of Kalendegatan”, since this is the street where she lived and where her ghost was first seen.

Hippodromen theater

The Malmö theater is located here at Hippodromen, or Hipp as it is also called. There used to be an indoor circus here with a submerged pool for water-based acts.

Karna Möller's home

Karna and Per Möller’s home and brewery was located in this alleyway in the 1700’s. This is also where Karna’s ghost was first sighted.

Malmö City Hall

Per Möller fetched water for his brewery from the well where the fountain is located today. City hall housed the authorities who launched an investigation of the hauntings.

Lilla torg "Little square"

Lilla torg (Little square in English), gives an impression of what Malmö looked like in Karna Möller’s days in the 1700’s, with its preserved half-timbered houses.

Kungsparken south

Kungsparken (King’s park) was constructed in the 1870-talet, but this area has been used both as a cemetery and as part of the Malmöhus castle area before that.

Kungsparken north

This part of the park borders Malmöhus castle, where there are several museums. When this area was excavated, caskets with human remains were thrown into the canal.

The Annellska house

This is one of the few houses in this area which date back to the 1700’s. You can still see the initials of the original owners above the door: Johan Müller and Ingeborg Andersdotter.

The Kockska house

The Danish coin master Jörgen Kock built this impressive brick house in the early 1500’s. The building housed Jörgen’s bank, a large ballroom and the family’s private residence.

The St:Petri church

The final location of this StoryTour. Priest Jöns Rönbeck from the St Petri church wrote the prayer that would be recited in Malmö churches to ward off Karna Möller’s ghost.
