Lay of the Land

Gamla Stan: Eye-catching storefronts and authentic restaurants are set alongside 1500’s architecture on this medieval harbor island.

Norrmalm: Here you’ll find a concrete grid of 19th-century buildings occupied by creative offices and the central train station.

Östermalm: This part of the city center is full of luxury boutiques, of-the-moment bars, and venerable food halls.

Södermalm: A formerly working-class neighborhood, Södermalm is now gentrified but still replete with old-school cafés and shawarma stands.

Djurgården/Skeppsholmen: These verdant islands are home to acres of woods and gardens, in addition to a few lovely museums.

Getting Around

Taxi Stockholm and Taxi 020 are the most reliable cabs to hail. A Stockholm Card includes unlimited rides on buses and subways.
