Is 2 nights enough for a "taste" of Stockholm?

Jump to last reply

First, let me acknowledge that I realize there are surely plenty of great things to see and do in Stockholm that could fill 4+ days and nights, but I am trying to squeeze a visit in between London and Copenhagen, which are sightseeing priorities for me for various reasons. I was wondering whether 2 nights would be enough to get a nice orientation to Stockholm. I was planning on flying in early on Monday from London, arriving at 10:30am or so, which gives me the afternoon to explore Gamla Stan. The second day, Tuesday, I wanted to do a half-day Archipelago boat tour in the morning, followed by a visit to Skansen and the Vasa Museum on the Djurgarden in the afternoon. I would like to go out in Sodermalm one night and Ostermalm the other. On Wednesday mid-day, I would take the train to Copenhagen.

Now, I know there will be plenty who suggest that I add this time to the other cities, but I have already been to both London and Copenhagen before, and I really want to get an (admittedly brief) taste of Stockholm, as I don't think it will be a travel priority for future trips. How does this itinerary sound to those who have visited Stockholm before?

Thanks!
