❄️Enjoy the beauty of Stockholm in winter:
Top reasons to visit
-THE SKIING
The city has a number of spots where you can rent your equipment and spend the day skiing or hit the night looking at the city lights.
-THE PARKS
Sledding, cross-country skiing, ice skating or simply playing with the snow. More than ten parks that worth a visit.
-FROZEN WATER
Not only the views, Stockholm is surrounded by water; so long distance ice skating and even walking from island to island on the ice are the coolest things to do.
-THE BRIDGES
57 bridges to get you from one area to another if you are not into walking on the open ice. Lovely views are a plus. 
-The food, the warm bars ,the coziest places to stay and much more. 
Which are  going to be your reasons to come to Stockholm this season?

Man Stockholm Barbershop

A traditional barbershop for the modern gentleman

Man Stockholm Barbershop opened the doors 2016 on Götgatan and got immediate impact. Since then, the leather armchairs have been full. In this updated 20th century environment, Tony & Guy’s British cutting technique is mixed with influences from a Turkish barber experience. Precision, vintage tools, sharp lines, and the gentleman look. Choose from modern and retro, a ‘Bruce Willis’ haircut, beard trimming, or a luxurious package of hot/cold towels, head massage, and steam machine.

Man Stockholm Barbershop calls itself a ‘man cave.’ A kind of free place where men get to be men. The concept is just as popular on bachelor parties as it is for dads on Father’s Day, and they are also popular among celebrities. Here, stars such as the Swedish actors Joel Kinnaman and Peter Haber, as well as influencers have cut their hair, not to mention the entire Swedish national team.

In short; the perfect place for men to pamper themselves. So if you are in the mood for a new haircut or a trimming of your beard, you better book an appointment since it’s full business every day of the week!

Welcome to Man Stockholm Barbershop!

TOP 3 REASONS TO VISIT

⭐Professional cutting techniques

Your guide to outdoor activities in Stockholm

Outdoors is never too far away in Stockholm. City parks, greenhouses, natural wilderness areas are always just a short hop away on the train. From late spring to fall, locals take advantage of the many natural areas around and just outside of town. At Tantolunden on Södermalm, visitors can try their hands at mini golf or sunbathe on the riverside. Kungsträdgården in Norrmalm is normally quiet except for the cafés, but this is where you’ll find the best food festivals in town. Rålambshovsparken on Kungsholmen is a popular park in the summertime, where people gather to play beach volleyball, yoga, skate at the skatepark, or attend an outdoor theatrical performances and cinematic screenings on the green.

Swimming holes are everywhere, and relaxing on the riverbanks is a favorite summer past time for many Stockholmers. Beaches are usually equipped with bathing jetties, diving towers, and sometimes ice cream kiosks. The city is known for clean water, from family-friendly Smedsuddsbadet to Brunnsvikens strandbad on Djurgården. Visitors looking for a quiet respite should head to Långholmens Strandbad or try their luck at the small and forested Lake Trekanten in Liljeholmen.

On the cusp of an archipelago of 3,000 islands, Stockholm is the perfect base for a boat trip or kayaking adventure. Simply hop on a ferry for a carefree day exploring the towns or parks on Vaxholm, Norrtälje, Landsort or countless others. Your best bet for a Stockholm archipelago is in the summertime, when the days are longer and warmer, ferries are frequent and shops and galleries are open for summer guests.
