Local experience

Södermalm is the cool and ”trendy” party of Stockholm. Great bars and cool places to eat, great vitabge stores and cute small shops, nice to just walk around in too! ”Östermalm” is the fancier part, with pretty buildning, nice stores and lovely resturants. A bit more expensive. The old town, small but really worth the visit. Skansen is cool if you want too see animals like moose, bears and other cool swedish animals. We have lots of museeums. My favourite is the photography museeum. If you want a nice view of Stockholm, pleease don’t miss Skinnarviksberget, or the viewpoint out on Långholmen. So pretty for sunset and very popular amongst locals. For walking around, Djurgården is gorgeous and Långholmen too. Stockholm is very pretty for walking around and exploring the parks etc. The metro and bus system is so good here and you can get anywhere with it, and also renting the scooters that are just parked along the streets is a good way for getting around for just a small fee if you’re tired of walking long distances.

Solo travel experience

I went a few weeks ago and had a great time. I stayed at the Generator Hostel which was social and a had good location. I went to Skansen and had a great time. The metro stations had amazing art on the walls so spent time looking at those as they were so cool! The photography and modern art museums were really good too.

Solo travel experience

Stockholm was my first solo trip, felt super safe and amazing. I stayed at “STF af Chapman & Skeppsholmen” hostel, I opted for this as I wanted some company being the first time I went somewhere alone. The hostel is really close to the city center, I reached 90% of the main sights walking, then used the public transport which felt very safe too. Skansen was really nice, I loved the Royal palace too and did the archipelago tour. It took me 3.30 hours and it was so so beautiful, I did it at sunset. Food can be expensive but there’s lots of nice pastries for not that much and definitely splurge for at least couple meals to try local food, I loved it!! Lingonberries have my heart.

Family travel experience

I was in Stockholm a few weeks ago and had the best time. We spent a day walking around Gamla stan and that area of the city and absolutely loved it. We are ABBA fans so went to the museum and also really enjoyed that. If you like their music it’s worth every penny. The Vasa museum was also really cool, so worth looking into. My sister and I stayed in the Generator in one of their female dorm rooms. It’s the nicest hostel I’ve stayed in by far and is reasonably priced.

Local experience

Go to Skansen (its a beautiful walk there from the subway/train/central Stockholm), don't take the bus or spårvagn. You have to go when its not raining, there is an amazing view when the sun sets from centralbron and södermälarstrand (the mountain/cliff on Södermalm). You should eat at pinchos, they have a super cool concept and great food (they have a few locations in Stockholm). Gamla stan (old town), I wouldn't recommend buying anything there because its a tourist trap and everything is overpriced. Don't look super touristy cause there are (apparently) many thieves there, I’ve never seen one myself during my 19 years in Stockholm though. You should buy cinnamon rolls (kanelbullar) preferably stenugns bakade, my favorite place is fabrique in sergelgången (by Sergels torg ”T-Centralen” under the mall ”gallerian”). If you like museums and art I would recommend fotografiska on Södermalm, by slussen. They are open late so I would go there after dark when there is nothing else to do. Don't go to vasamuseumet or gröna Lund.
