Getting about

Stockholm has efficiency sorted, meaning buses, underground trains, commuter trains, ferry lines (in Greater Stockholm) and trams all run smoothly, make exploring easy-peasy. You’ll also be going green – the buses use eco-friendly fuels like ethanol to keep things commendably clean. The city is split into three zones and getting a zone ticket is good for several trips within a 75 to 120 minute time period. Just remember that you can’t pay cash for tickets on buses in Stockholm, so your best bet is to get a prepaid ticket from a station or a newsagent kiosk.

More than IKEA and meatballs

Stockholm suburb Skärholmen has the largest IKEA in the world. But if you’re looking for meatballs, we suggest Meatballs for the People, which has at least 14 types of ‘balls, including elk, beef and salmon versions. For food on the go download the StreetKäk App to track down the food trucks. You’ll be rewarded with Pad Thai, schnitzels and everything in-between. Coffee-lovers will be in heaven; Sweden is one of the world’s top 10 coffee-consuming countries. They’re especially keen on fika – the art of social coffee breaking with a sweet treat. Get involved.

Nightlife

The Swedes love to party. For jazz, funk and soul head to Fasching, and in the summer, when the sun stays up till 10pm, check out open-air entertainment venue Under Bron, which moves inside during winter. If you wanna get fancy make like a VIP at Cafe Opera – it’s the first place the celebs head to in their limos to mingle over champagne, and under chandeliers. Schnapps, or aquavit served ice-cold is a great way to start your night in a typically Swedish way, especially if it comes with a smörgåsbord – a plate of everything from herring to smoked reindeer.

What to do in Stockholm for 3 days

Soap and bubbles at the Tom Tits Experiment

There’s a daily soap and bubble show at the Tom Tits Experiment! And, no… it’s not what you’re probably imagining. This is Sweden’s biggest science center, where young and old can get an interactive education in physics, math, technology, geography and illusions. Get a chance to hold your brain, power flashing lights via kinetic energy on a special bike, try the digital climbing wall (!) to improve your memory and muscles, and seriously... do not miss that soap and bubble show.

Take a Djurgården canal cruise

Get into a greener side of Stockholm by taking a cool Djurgården canal cruise, leaving from Strömkajen. The Djurgården canal was built by hand back in 1832 and a cruise along its waters will show you some of Stockholm’s most famous and impressive sights. See the Grand Palace - one of the world’s most famous, and a few of the city’s 57 bridges. Learn the history of the city and the Djurgården canal from a guide and on the way back, see the Stockholm skyline from a whole new angle.

Sunken warships and 18th-century Sweden

The impressive Vasa Museum offers nautical fans the chance to stand on a resurrected warship which capsized and sank nearby in 1628 and spent 333 long years on the seabed. Alternatively the open-air historical museum of Skansen is a great way to help you get to grips with Swedish life, past and present. Walk through Sweden as it was in the 1900s and don’t miss lunch at the restaurant, where everything on the menu is prepared and cooked in the old tried-and-tested traditional way.

Hop-on Hop-off Bus and Boat

Stockholm’s a rather expensive city, so it makes sense to do it smart. And using the Hop-on Hop-off boats and buses to get around between attractions is one of the smartest decisions you’ll make here. Grab a sightseeing boat and see the city highlights like the Royal Palace, Vasa Museum, and Gröna Lund amusement park, from the water. The Hop-on Hop-off Bus gets you access to and from 25 different stops on the green Hop-on Hop-off buses and red City Sightseeing Worldwide buses.
