471 51 Klädesholmen, Sweden
Sweden’s ties to the sea are obvious and infiltrate every part of the travel experience, from food to culture. One area that had remained untouched was the hotel industry, until now. Located on tiny Herring Island (Klädesholmen) is a very unique...
Slussgatan 1, 411 06 Göteborg, Sweden
If I only had one day in Gothenburg, I would spend the afternoon at the harbor. Maybe first dinner aboard the Barque Viking, which after a number of resurrections is now a hotel and restaurant. Afterwards, the Gothenburg Opera is a sight to see....
Lilla Varvsgatan 14, 211 15 Malmö, Sweden
A new Swedish pop music group perhaps? Not quite. On my road trip through Southern Sweden, an architect friend of mine insisted we stop in Malmö to see Santiago Calatrava’s building, the Turning Torso, which was modeled after his own human form...
Höör Municipality, Sweden
When you need to get out, but you are not sure where to go, that is the precise moment to remember that it’s not about the destination, it’s about the drive. Visions of rambling hills, populated with quaint, artful farmhouses like this one are an...
Södermalm, Stockholm, Sweden
Södermalm is a beautiful area right on the water, connected to the surrounding mainland by bridges. It’s one of the most popular areas of Stockholm, with tons of history, where you can find the most bars and restaurants in town. If you happen to...
Galärvarvsvägen 14, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
Located on the island of Djurgården, this purpose-built maritime museum is an extraordinary sight: It houses the massive warship Vasa, which sank just minutes after launching on its maiden voyage in 1628. Raised from the harbor in 1961,...
Djurgårdsslätten 49-51, 115 21 Stockholm, Sweden
Skansen is the world’s oldest open-air museum. It was founded in 1891 to preserve and spotlight Swedish culture—from traditional artisans at work and period Nordic lifestyles to barns with farm animals and a zoo with Nordic wildlife such as...
Karlavägen 32, 114 31 Stockholm, Sweden
Humlegården, a large and popular park in Stockholm’s pricey Östermalm area, is also a favorite hangout spot for skateboarders. Beyond sunbathers that swarm its green grass at the first sign of sunlight, the park also has a playground, a small...
Stortorget 20, 111 29 Stockholm, Sweden
A bowl of hot chocolate topped with a cloud of whipped cream and paired with a slice of dessert is the perfect compliment to the cold of Swedish afternoons, and Chokladkoppen in Gamla Stan Stockholm is a wonderful locale in which to enjoy this...
271 78 Löderup, Sweden
Ales Stenar is a rock formation (in the shape of a ship, roughly) that sits atop a ridge on the coast of southern Sweden. There have been many comparisons to Stonehenge but there are no other connections other than they both have standing stones...
271 77 Sandhammaren, Sweden
Sandhammeren is arguably southern Sweden's most beautiful beach. Pack a picnic and a hat and enjoy the fine white sand beach contrasted by the bluest waters. It was relatively quiet when we visited. I'd recommend accessing the beach through the...
107 70 Stockholm, Sweden
The Royal Palace located in the center of Stockholm and is a must visit. The grand structure is impressive just to walk by but when you enter into the palace it is amazing to see how royalty lived with the grand rooms, intricate art and furniture,...
Karl XII:s torg 9, 111 47 Stockholm, Sweden
While walking through the streets of Stockholm we landed on a great park/promenade that had street performers, live music, kids playing, fountains and opened up to the water. While we were walking we noticed a sandwich shop in the middle of the...
