Stockholm is a big city and there is so much too see and to choose from and we believe that tips from local recommendations are always the best. The locals know where all the best places are hidden, and we have managed to pick the brains of our local tour guides and gathered valuable information regarding what to see and experience while you visit the wonderful city of Stockholm.
According to our resources ;) Aifur Krog & Bar is a great restaurant to go to get the full Viking experience. The point is to give the guests a chance to see how the old ancestors might have had it when they celebrated a grand feast. This is an experience that is not to be missed and great for all ages.
Lax pudding, or Salmon pudding, might not sound like something you would order but don‘t judge a book by its cover, this dish is mouth-wateringly delicious. This dish is considered to be one of the best examples of husmanskost (home cooking), but don’t let that make you think it is dull. Generous amounts of butter and lots of dill give it a luxurious taste and appearance.
Skinnarviksberget is the highest natural point in central Stockholm and is a favorite by many to come and have a picnic or even a party under the bright blue sky. The view is incredible, and you‘ll be able to see Kungsholmen, Gamla Stan (Old Town), the Stockholm Town Hall, and other great attractions. We recommend the open-air café in the park beneath the hill on a summer day.
The Vasa museum is a maritime museum located on the island of Djurgården. Vasa is a warship that was built between 1626 and 1628, but it sank in its maiden voyage. The ship was salvaged in the 1950s, and today Vasa is the world‘s only preserved 17th-century ship and one of the most visited museums in Scandinavia. The museum is a must see, for everyone!
Because the city of Stockholm stretches across 14 islands, the best view of the town is on the water. You can rent SUP (stand up paddle board) or Kayaks and get a duck’s eye view (the best according to our guides) of the Town Hall, Gamla Stan, and so many other attractions.
Old Town, or Gamla Stan, is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. This part of town is one of the largest and best-preserved medieval centers in Europe. This is where you’ll find old narrow streets with beautiful churches and museums, yummy cafés and restaurants and so much more. Walking around Gamla Stan is like stepping into a storybook.
