“We received a wonderfully warm welcome from Bengt when we arrived at his and Gunilla’s fabulous apartment in the heart of Gamla Stan. We were delighted to make this characterful and comfortable apartment our home for four nights. It was light, airy and spacious as well as being in the most perfect location for our first visit to Stockholm. Gunilla and Bengt were very generous and hospitable and we look forward to reciprocating in NZ next year.”
Where is it?
The old medieval town center of Stockholm (Gamla Stan) is full of interesting sites, museums and busy restaurants and cafes.
its buzzing with life during days but also magic during evenings when you can stroll the alleys and look up into the apartments and see old panels and roofs inside the apartments. Stockholm has around 80 museums and lots of good music at the Opera, Berwald hall and the Concert hall.
All Swedes are quite friendly and god at speaking english so you can ask for tips anywhere and to anyone.
We recommend you to take the Stockholm Ghost Walk in Old Town since its both interesting, scary and great fun!
Museums in Gamla Stan: The Royal Palace, the Nobel Museum, Museum of Medieval Stockholm. All museums are in Swedish and English.
Some museums of interest at Djurgården (available by ferry five minutes away from our flat) could be the famous ABBA museum which is great fun and interactive. The museum of Wasa: Swedens biggest failure in medieval time since the ship sank after only five minutes at sea! The Viking museum. Skansen outdoor museum. The museum of Liqour and many more.
Its also nice to take a roundtrip by the sightseeing boat and look at Stockholm from the water.
Five minutes walk to Södermalm which is the home to all Swedish hipsters. Look cool and stay trendy!
