If your time in the endlessly fascinating city of Stockholm is limited, you need to know where to go. Hop in your rental car and drive to these three enchanting neighborhoods.
The sightseeing center of Stockholm lies on the peninsula known as Gamla Stan, in the very heart of the city. Here’s where you’ll find colorful townhouse façades, the spectacular Royal Palace, and Sweden’s parliament buildings. The Nobel Museum is a fascinating stop for anyone interested in the prize given to the world’s great thinkers.
The area just below Gamla Stan is densely populated, colorful and exciting. Prepare to get wonderfully lost in this maze of streets, which is all part of the fun. The eastern half of the island, Katarina-Sofia, is home to the State Museum, a photography gallery, and a number of scenic churches. Hornstull, on the western edge of Södermalm, is known for its vintage shops and modern nightlife.
Entertainment and escapism awaits on the island of Djurgården, a parkland with great views of the city center. Come here with the family to enjoy the zoo and museum of Skansen, or to learn about children’s literature in the Junibacken Museum. There’s also an attraction dedicated to ABBA, an amusement park, and the royal home of Prince Eugen.
