The best time to visit is during the summer when temperatures are at their highest. Spend your afternoons wandering the cobbled streets of the old town, explore the city’s cultural history at the many museums and galleries, or prepare for a night of velvet ropes in the glamorous Stureplan district.

Whether you’re a couple seeking a romantic break or a hipster searching for the coolest art and nightlife, a city break in Stockholm will not disappoint. Spend your days exploring the museums and quirky cafes in the old town, then get dressed up and head out for some celebrity-spotting in glamorous Stureplan.

Start your city break in Stockholm roaming the cobblestone lanes of the old town, Gamla Stan. Spend a day taking in the medieval architecture, or venture down the side alleys to find quaint restaurants and boutiques that aren’t flooded by tourists. You’ll be surprised at what quirky treasures you can pick up.

Bibliotekstan is the best place to go in Stockholm for luxury fashion and design. Here you’ll find a range of high-end Swedish and international labels. For more affordable shopping, head to Ahelens City department store, or the trendy district of Normallam. This lively neighbourhood has a cool mix of clothing chains and restaurants. 

Take a unique look at the city’s history and culture at the Skansen open-air museum and zoo. One of the most popular tourist attractions in Stockholm, this interactive museum treats you to reassembled historical buildings, replica towns and staff dressed in period costume.

Coffee drinking is a big part of the Swedish culture. Go for a fika (coffee break) at one of Stockholm’s many cafes. From cosy and traditional to contemporary and creative, there are a number of different places in Stockholm to enjoy a latte and slice of carrot cake. 

Visited by business people, models and celebrities, Stureplan is the best place to go in Stockholm to experience the high-profile nightlife. Expect exclusive clubs, long lines and selective entry. For a more relaxed evening out, head to the trendy Sodermalam area where you’ll find cosy pubs, friendly bars and a laidback vibe.
