Historically, Malmö has not had a natural deep harbor except for a small channel with a depth of two meters to the east of the older part of Malmö towards Kirseberget. The channel disappeared during the 1700th century and until the end of the century, a long wooden bridge was used instead, which stretched out into the sea to bring goods into Malmö from the ships in question. 

However, the bridge was not a sustainable solution and the forces of the weather in the form of wind, waves and ice tore hard on the bridge. The repairs were so frequent that Christian IV created an extra bridge tax to finance the maintenance. 

Ships with a depth of more than two meters were allowed to anchor far out in Öresund, where they were exposed to storms. The first "real" port began to be built at the end of the 1700th century with the goal that large boats could build directly at the pier to avoid intermediate loads. 

In 1820, the work had progressed to the point that the harbor now had two stable piers and a water depth of up to four meters at the deepest part. Twenty years later in the 1840s, the harbor basin was widened and the area around the harbor was walled in.

In 1856, the railway station in Malmö was inaugurated and it had a huge impact on the importance of the port, now passengers could go directly from the train to the Copenhagen ferry or on to the continent.
