Malmköping is located about 15 kilometers north of the municipal seat Flen. It is a tourist attraction due to its many annual markets.[2] The traditions of markets in Malmköping goes back more than two centuries, as Malmköping got market town rights (köping) in 1785.

There is also a museum tramway in Malmköping, running heritage trams from most of the Swedish tramway systems. Olympian Helge Meuller was born here.[3]
