Where to stay in Stockholm for the first time: Gamla Stan

Gamla-Stan-stockholm-vieille-ville-visite

Gamla Stan, literally ‘Old Town’ in Swedish, is Europe’s oldest and best-preserved medieval city centre.

Prepare to fall in love with its narrow, winding streets, each lined with colourful buildings housing cafés, bars and shops!

gamla-stan-dormir-stockholm-quartier

The main square, Stortorget, is one of the city’s most photographed spots, and hosts Christmas markets every winter.

Gamla Stan is also home to the Royal Palace, where you should see the changing of the guard at least once during your stay.

palais-royal-garde-stockholm

Admission to the palace is charged, but two of its museums, the Royal Armoury and the Royal Coin Cabinet, are free and offer a treasure trove of interesting exhibits!

Now for the bad news: accommodation, food and drink are never cheap in the Swedish capital, but Gamla Stan is the most expensive area; if you come in summer, you’ll have to contend with hordes of tourists.

If you’re ready to splash out or just want to be in the centre, Gamla Stan is a great place to stay in Stockholm.

Things to see and do in Gamla Stan :

– The Royal Palace

– Swedish Parliament

– (in winter) Christmas market on Stortorget square

– The Nobel Museum

– Get lost in the narrow cobbled streets

Where to stay in Stockholm with your family: Djurgården

Djurgården-visiter-stockholm

Djurgården is the greenest of all Stockholm’s islands, and it is perfect for dreamy walks that will make you forget you’re in a capital!

It’s also home to Skansen, a living museum with old-fashioned shops and Scandinavian animals, as well as several other of the city’s best museums.

skansen-musee-stockholm (2)

The ferry from Slussen will drop you off in front of Gröna Lund, an amusement park that offers live music (sometimes with big names) and dance parties throughout the summer.

Families and museum-goers are therefore invited to choose this part of Stockholm as their holiday destination, although the choice of accommodation is limited.

Nearby Skeppsholmen, a small island with more than its fair share of museums, offers a better choice of hotels and hostels, and you can easily catch the ferry from there to Djurgården.

Things to see and do in Djurgarden:

– Skansen, the world’s oldest open-air museum

– Gröna Lund amusement park

– Cycle around the island

– ABBA Museum

– Take a stroll through the avenues of the Royal Park.

Kungsholmen: Stockholm’s cheapest district

Kungsholmen-quartier-loger-stockholm

Stockholm-plage-kayak-quartier

In summer, it’s the ideal place to go kayaking or to visit the smedsuddsbadet and Fredhällsbadet. In the latter case, you may see experienced swimmers jumping off the rocks into the crystal-clear the crystal-clear waters of the lake below!
