Strolls around Stockholm

Monteliusvägen

This walking path sits high up on the cliffs of Södermalm and offers magnificent views of Old Town, Riddarholmen, City Hall and Lake Mälaren, especially at sunrise and sunset.

The City Hall Gardens

One of the country’s leading examples of national romanticism in architecture, the gardens behind the City Hall (Stadshuset) building shuts out the noise of the city and are filled with sculptures and water views that create a unique atmosphere. Afterwards, you can continue your walk westwards along the shore.

The Royal Palace

There are great views around the Royal Palace. Not only is this Palace (one of the largest in Europe) itself stunning, but the views of the city and its reflection in the water is priceless.

Drottningholm Palace

Make a day trip to Sweden’s most preserved royal palaces and the permanent residence of the royal family. Take a walk around the romantic Baroque garden and visit the Chinese Pavilion along the way. (Don’t miss out on the waffles with jam and cream in the café!)

Djurgården

In any season Djurgården is a calm oasis, and taking a stroll along the canals and gardens is breathtaking. There are also many scenic cafes and restaurants along the paths.

Gamla Stan

The old city is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. As one of the largest medieval city centres in Europe, Gamla stan has a storybook atmosphere, with cobbled stones paths, and streets lined with cafes, bars, restaurants, places to shop.  Make sure not to miss Riddarholmen and the Riddarholmen Church.

 

Activities

Ice skating in the middle of the city with your Valentine is a great idea, especially after a romantic dinner.
