FOOD TOURS STOCKHOLM. One of the best, maybe THE very best way, to get to know Stockholm is with a great guide by your side and a cinnamon bun in your hand.
Sweden has a long and interesting food tradition that's given the world delicacies such as meat balls, gravlax, pytt i panna and – sorry about that – sour herring …
Combine this tradition with modern, talented, chefs and a huge influx of cultures and tastes from most parts of the planet, you get a city that makes foodies very, very happy.
In Stockholm you'll find international, Michelin starred, fine dining restaurants, amazing fast food, super yummy chocolate and toffee, great sandwiches, fantastic food markets and always something good to go with the food.
Beer? We're pretty much world leading experts. Schnapps? The best. Wine? Well, we import all of it, but we know how to pair it and to drink it. Coffee – we consume more coffee than any other country on this planet. Except for Finland. But who goes there, right?
