Stockholm 4 days in November

Jump to last reply

My husband has a business trip and we are piggybacking 4 days/nights in Stockholm the first week in November (5th - 9th). We have a flat in Norrmalm. We are planning on visiting the Vasa Museum, Ostermalm food market, Galma Stan, Storkyrkan Cathedral & the changing of the guard at the palace. I am not sure my 3 boys are interested in seeing the inside of the palace, though it might be a nice respite from the cold!

Would love to do a boat tour of the archipelago - any commendations on that? It appears our only option is a noon tour on Saturday or Sunday:

Does the route look good? Are there other options I am not seeing?

I know it will be cold and potentially rainy. Dark early... We will be prepared for that (and the prices...). Anything else I am missing? Other areas we should check out?

We generally prefer to shop & prepare dinners at the flat, but would like at least one good dinner out. Not fancy or Michelin starred - but good Swedish food. I have read Pelikan is good, but is it appropriate for kids? Not ill behaved kids - just normal 8 & 11 year olds. I also read La Neta is good for mexican, Vigarda for burgers & Beijing 8 for dumplings. Anyone have experience with these?

I was considering a free walking tour (the one where you tip afterward accordingly). Good idea? Would love to hear anyones input. Thanks!!
