Enjoy the view of Stockholm from SkyView

There are few more spectacular way to experience the beautiful view of Stockholm than SkyView. This attraction offers an extraordinary experience when it takes you on a ride in a glass gondola along the outside of the Globe, the world’s largest spherical building. From the top, 130 meters above the sea level, you can then enjoy a stunning view in all directions, and check out all the capital’s famous landmarks.

SkyView has been around since 2010. It started as a “crazy idea” that became a reality after six years. It’s said to be unique in the world. The two glass gondolas are custom designed, manufactured by lift manufacturers, and there is no similar facility in the world. Before the opening, the roof of the Globe first had to be reinforced with 42 tons of steel, and then given a 72-ton rail on the outside of the arena.

A ride with this Stockholm world-attraction is a perfect activity for both children and adults. So whether you visit SkyView with your family, friends or colleagues, you are in for a breathtaking journey as you glide upwards along the Globe’s white and globosed wall. Each glass gondola seats 16 people and depart every ten minutes.

When you reach the top of 130 meters (425 feet) you are almost as high as Kaknästornet, and can enjoy an unbeatable view of Stockholm in all directions. At the top you stand still for a few minutes so you have the opportunity to take photos or film before heading downwards again. All in all, the entire visit takes 20-30 minutes.

Note that there may be delays during holiday periods and weekends, when demand is high. A good idea is to pre-book your tickets so that you get a seat just when you want to experience SkyView, and can go directly to the gondolas the time your ticket says without standing in line. Tickets are available at the Stockholm Globe Arenas.
