Eurovision Song Contest - a cash windfall for Malmö

Now that Sweden has chosen Robin Stjernberg and his song "You" to represent the nation at the Eurovision Song Contest in Malmö, thoughts now turn to preparing for the show, which will be watched by millions in May.

While several hotels in Sweden's third largest city are already fully booked for the third weekend in May, locals are already cashing in on renting out rooms to some of the 100000 visitors expected to arrive in Malmö.

Maria Nyman Moritz tells news agency TT that she is opening her home to two Dutchmen.

"To be able to stay with a resident of the town you can get tips and help to find out what's going on, it is really good," she says.

Swedes do not pay taxes on rental income up to SEK 40 000 and Maria Nyman Moritz tells TT that she will be using the extra cash on a trip to New York.
