#Innsider’s-Städteführer für Stockholm
Sweden’s capital is located on 14 islands and is rich in history and culture as well as one of the most technologically advanced cities in the world. Thanks to this combination, it is one of the most interesting cities in Scandinavia. Whether you have a few days to explore or just a short business trip, find out more about what you can see or do in our # Innsiders City Guide.
1. A view of the city
Visitors should first go to Kaknästornet for a good view of the city. The Kaknäs Tower is Stockholm’s answer to the Berlin TV Tower (though not so high) and the most important microwave tower in Sweden. From the viewing platform you can see the city center to the west and the islands to the east. The communication lines also run in the underground; The city has one of the best networks of fiber optic cables worldwide.
2. Island hopping
This term is usually associated with travel to Southeast Asia or the Adriatic. However, visitors to Stockholm should try the Swedish way. Take a day, visit some of the 30,000 islands and breathe the fresh air of the Baltic Sea. If you are looking for an adventure, you can head for the islands on a kayak; however, there are also enough ferries. Whatever you decide on, you should bring clothing for every weather.
3. A traditional “Krog”
Back in the city center you should visit a “Krog”, a traditional restaurant. The Pelikan Restaurang was founded in 1733 and has a varied menu with dishes from meatballs to grilled reindeer. The food in the restaurant is a bit expensive in Stockholm. A main course usually costs about 20 euros, but the warm atmosphere of the old building compensates for this.
4. World famous design
Modern design is probably Sweden’s most important export item. In a city full of galleries, choosing the gallery to visit is sometimes difficult. No changes made The Designgalleriet, with a monthly changing exhibition program, presents such diverse topics as interior design and industrial design. Admission is free. Come and learn about the aesthetics of Scandinavian design.
After a busy day in the city, head to the Söder district and relax with a drink in one of Stockholm’s trendy bars. Challenge your fellow travelers to a round of table tennis at the Morfar Ginko , and if you’re there on the weekend, watch the local DJ in the basement club hang up. During the summer months, visitors can sit in the grand courtyard of the bar.
