Thottska House

Thottska House is the oldest surviving half-timbered house of Malmö on Estergatan, near Drottningtorghet. In the 1970s the house underwent extensive restoration, which meant that most of the wooden houses were replaced by modern building materials. Despite this, the house gives a good idea of what a rich house looked like in the main district of Malmö in the 16th century.

The door beam and the door girder overlooking the street are original and suggest that it was the rich Tage Tott and his wife Elsa Ulfstand who built the house in 1558. On the ground floor there are interesting frescoes since the house was built, including the oldest depiction of a turkey in the Nordic countries.
