Hornstulls Markand

Soak up the sun, try out new food trucks and shop vintage at this rather special market, organised by a city initiative which focuses on creating a happier city. Open at the weekends from mid-April through to September.

Nobel Museum

An award-winning museum of award-winning ideas, this is a space dedicated to courage and creativity. Hosting both permanent and temporary thematic exhibitions, the most notable event held here is, of course, the Nobel Prize dinner. While a seat at the event is pretty much a non-runner for civilians, the museum cafeteria serves up a pretty great consolation prize, selling whatever last year’s dessert was so that punters can at least get a taste of the evening.

Obaren

Sweden is one of the world’s largest exporters of music, so catching a concert while in Stockholm is a must. Located inside a restaurant in the Sturegallerian, this rock-focused bar hosts free performances from local and international talent every Tuesday. The space is intimate and it’s usually a full house.

Grona Lund

Who says amusement parks are just for children? This sophisticated take on a the traditional theme park is bedecked with waterfront bars and restaurants. Come summer, it also has one of the best musical lineups around. See incredible local artists including Sabina Ddumba, Sandro Cavazza, Silvana Imam and Molly Sandén alongside international acts, all included in the price of your admission ticket.

National Museum

Reopening in the autumn of 2018, architecture enthusiasts will want to add the National Museum to their to do list. Sweden’s largest art museum is home to a collection spanning from the 16th century to the present and showcases over 16,000 works ranging from Rembrandt to Goya and Degas. If one museum excursion just isn’t sufficient, there are a large number of state-owned museums, including the fantastic Moderna Museet (admission is free).

Långholmsbadet

If you visit Stockholm in the summer (and the weather is good), there’s nothing better than taking a dip then spending the afternoon lounging in the sun. Stop by a local supermarket, prepare a picnic and take a lesson in relaxation. We’re headed for the beach area on the inner-city island of Långholmen.

Fotografiska

Set directly on the waterfront, Fotografiska is something of an institution. Aside from the prestigious photographs and prints it houses, it also boasts fantastic views of the city and the amusement park Gröna Lund. With a collection that changes on average every three to four months, exhibitions are often heralded as “eye-opening”.
