Stockholm Travel Guide

Welcome to the worlds most beautiful capital

The essentials – start your planning here

Arriving in Stockholm

Welcome to Sweden! You'll probably touch down at Arlanda or Skavsta Airport. But then what? Taxi, bus, train or pre-booked transfer?

Getting around town

Standard advice: Put on your walking shoes and just go! But sometimes the subway, buses and trains come in handy.

What to see

Plan ahead! Stockholm has a lot of spectacular sights. Let us guide from the Vasa Warship and Vikings to more modern attractions.


International fashion and local designers. Luxury shopping, H&M and moose souvenirs. Big malls & small shops. Stockholm's got it all.

Where to stay

Soft sheets, smart designs, sumptuous and healthy breakfasts – always in Scandinavian style. This is where to stay in Stockholm.

Weather and temperatures

Is it cold? It can be. Is it wet? Yup, more often than we approve of. Is it warm and sunny? On occasion – and those days are magical.

Book tours and attractions before you go

Our most important advice for planning a trip to Stockholm is this: Do your research, find out what you would like to see and do, and make the reservations online before you jet away to Sweden.

Why? Because you'll get a better price booking online than when booking directly with the attractions. Our partners Viator and Get Your Guide, both well known and trusted providers of tours & attractions, guarantees safe and smooth reservations.

Choose a Scandinavian hotel for the right feeling

You've probably stayed at Hilton, Sheraton, Marriott and other international chain hotels before. That's fine. But when in Stockholm, make sure to dine and sleep like a Scandinavian.

This town offers excellent hotels by local brands you probably never heard of, until now. Nordic Choice and Scandic has some really cool and spectacular properties. And there are quite a lot of smaller and more personal hotels and B&B:s as well.
