Things to do in Stockholm
I’m off to Stockholm for the weekend – what would anyone recommend? Anyone know some good bars, restaurants, good neighbourhoods to go out in, interesting things to see and do etc etc?
Thanks very much,
It’s been a few years but :
For your culture fix, head to the National Museum. For your meatballs fix, try Pelikan, an atmospheric Swedish beer hall in the trendy Södermalm district. This area is also great for shopping and nightlife – so-called SoFo (south of Folkungagatan and east of Götgatan) is packed with vintage stores and quirky boutiques. Pet Sounds, a groovy record shop/bar hybrid on Skånegatan, is worth seeking out.
Wander round the old town (Gamla Stan), trying to resist the temptation to pick up Scandi knickknacks to take home.
Don’t leave Stockholm without taking a boat trip. Head to the modern art museum on Skeppsholm island or venture further out into the archipelago (though some of the islands will be closed at this time of year).
