Trip Report Stockholm Fun

Jump to last reply

Just returned from Stockholm, so here are a few quick comments & recommendations.

We stayed at the Sheraton near the central train station, and found this an excellent location. A walk over the bridge to Gamla Stan & on to Sodermalm. A longish walk to Djurgarden, which was lovely. Lots to do, surrounded by beautiful green space. The Vasa Museum was very interesting (go in the afternoon when the tour buses have left). The ABBA Museum was quite inclusive in telling the details of the singers' backgrounds, their rise to fame & multiple hit records. One observation: if you have hearing issues, this place might be a bit difficult -- while you listen to the audio handset, the exhibits are sometimes playing their own music or narrative recordings, so you're hearing both at once. Kind of distracting.

We did a food tour with Food Tours Stockholm (The Nordic Experience) which was excellent. Numerous high quality samples of herring, cheese, bear meat, aquavit, Swedish beer, "Danish toast," meatballs, chocolates & more. The tour also took us to some historic old taverns. The guide Fredrik is great. (Note that a copycat company has started up & calls itself Stockholm Food Tours . So be sure to book the right one).

One museum which I didn't intend to visit but which I really enjoyed was the Royal Armory (in the palace in Gamla Stan). The number of items, the quality & excellent condition of them (many from the 1600s or 1700s) was impressive. There were things other than just armor & weapons -- clothing worn by the royal children, eg. (Also, there is a children's museum within the Armory that looked like a lot of fun).

We also enjoyed the Stromma 1-hour "Royal Canal" boat tour. It was included in the Stockholm Card admissions. Finally, the best part of Stockholm is just walking around the city & taking in the parks, the water views from every vantage point, and admiring the beautiful architecture. Oh yes: bring plenty of money if you want to eat!
