This is the full summer schedule for the boats from Stockholm (Strömkajen) to Vaxholm. It's in Swedish, but you can see the sailings are fairly frequent. Vaxholm is joined to the mainland by a bridge, so you can also get back to Stockholm by bus. Two of the ships (the NORRSKÄR and STORSKÄR) are steamships with restaurants and the other boats have cafés. The one-way fare is 65 kronor.

Thank you for your report! I have always wanted to visit Stockholm.

I am so glad that you mentioned Pippi Longstocking. When I was a child reading Pippi I would say to my mother, "Look, they wrote a book about Cousin Muffy!!!"

To this day I still call Muffy Pippi Longstocking. I will be seeing Muffy at her castle in Germany in 5 weeks.

Terrific report, most helpful for somebody planning a first visit.
Our plan is to travel in mid February, hoping to trudge around in a few inches of snow.
Any advice welcome regarding what will or will not be open for visiting at this particular time of year. Planning on staying at the Diplomat as it appears quite central.

Great report.

It brought back many happy memories of the five and a half years I lived in Stockholm.

I am planning a trip back later this year.

Escargot, very nice trip report! My daughter will be visiting Stockholm for just a weekend Feb 20-21. What are your must sees? There's a hostel in Gamla Stan that is available but she had her heart set on a boat hostel. Not many tours are offered in winter! From researching so far, we've come up with but don't they can fit all this in. i was thinking an organized tour would be good for an overall feel..

Vasa Ship Museum
Drottningsgatan walking avenue + Sergelstorget Square
Gamla Stan The Old City
Kungliga slottet Royal Palace
City Hall Tower
Skansen Outdoor Museum
