A must is the park Rålambshovsparken with one of Stockholm’s most popular bathing places as well as outdoor restaurants, skatepark, and bars. From here, you can walk along Norr Mälarstrand with a view of the water, Södermalm, and Långholmen. Along the way, there are plenty of restaurants and bars to stop at. Visit Folk and Friends, a relaxed and dog-friendly place that serves all kinds of beers and candy as an option. Enjoy the city’s tastiest shrimp sandwiches at the Mälarpaviljongen or get a dose of France at Petite France with homemade pastries and French-speaking staff. At the Orangeriet Bar & Café, you can enjoy good drinks and munches among orange trees and Moroccan lamps.
Don’t miss Piperska Muren’s garden, a hidden gem in the middle of the city with leafy greenery in baroque 18th-century style. Here you can stroll on a sunny spring day and continue towards the ice cream shop Kungsholmens Glassfabrik, pick up a few scoops of cardamom and Campari and settle down on one of the benches. Also, take the opportunity to find old books among the well-sorted shelves at Ryös Antikvariat, and visit the concept store Swedish Nature Collaborations, which brings together actors in vintage, design, crafts, and art.
And last but not least, you must visit The City Hall (‘Stadshuset’), one of Sweden’s most famous buildings and perhaps Stockholm’s most beautiful building located at the waterfront. It’s one of the city’s most popular tourist destinations and a popular place to get married. In the beautiful banquet hall The Blue Hall (which is actually red), the Nobel Banquet is held on December 10 every year.
