Sergels torg, 111 57 Stockholm, Sweden
Crispy, thin, and buttery, and served with a side of homemade whipped cream and lingonberry jam—this is how the Swedes do waffles. You can find these almost anywhere in the country where they serve fika—a word, no, institution involving coffee,...
Sergelgatan 29, 111 57 Stockholm, Sweden
Hötorgshallen is set next to an outdoor market through a nondescript set of doors and is down a set of narrow, dull gray escalators that make you think you're going into the Underground. You emerge, however, in a well-lit, well-stocked,...
Skånegatan 79, 116 35 Stockholm, Sweden
Let's face it, Stockholm is three things for travelers: It's cold. It's expensive. And it's home to some of the most gorgeous human specimens on this dear planet of ours. I may have found the perfect place to remedy these issues, should they be...
Adolf Fredriks kyrkogata 10, 111 37 Stockholm, Sweden
Sun streams through the big windows on the third floor of the church, setting the gold detail on the walls and ceilings aglow. The atmosphere is reserved; antique chandeliers and mirrors provide an elegant, refined setting. But even though I’m in...
Zinkens Väg, 118 42 Stockholm, Sweden

Götgatan 49-51, 116 21 Stockholm, Sweden
When I got into Stockholm to meet my friends, they were staying at Hotel Scandic Malmen and it served as a central location for our crazy times and my first visit to Sweden. This hotel was a great home-away-from-home with a funky lobby to top it...
Sockenvägen, 122 33 Stockholm, Sweden
As soon as I heard that a cemetery was one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites in Stockholm – I had to go visit. Really? A cemetery as a UNESCO World Heritage site – what in the world could make it so special? As soon as I walked into the cemetery...
Located a mere 45 minutes from Stockholm via ferry, the Royal Domain of Drottningholm provides an opportunity to visit one of the finest examples of 18th-century northern European architecture and garden design. The ensemble of palace, gardens,...
Kyrkogatan 1, 647 30 Mariefred, Sweden
Despite being only an hour from Stockholm, I had never heard of Mariefred prior to my visit. Home to Gripsholm Slott (Castle), originally built by the father of modern Sweden, Gustav Vasa, Mariefred makes you slow down and enjoy the inviting...
Mariehamn, Åland Islands
“Åland has a long maritime history so you want to try to get out on a boat if you can. I like to take visitors on the Galaesen Albanus, a replica of a wooden 1904 ship that cruises the archipelago. If you go out on a 4-hour route or longer, they...
