I was so excited to finally visit, but I wanted to make sure I visited Stockholm like a local and not waste any time on boring tourist sites. As luck would have it I had the coolest Swedish clients just before visiting and they gave us the lowdown on what we should do for a short three day trip.
The rumours are true, Sweden is expensive! We ate breakfast at our airbnb everyday to save a few pennies and, um, then for the rest of the day blew our budget.
Stockholm is a series of islands linked by bridges and we stayed on Soderalm. I don’t want to say hipster because that would be a disservice but it was the coolest downtown, stylish neighbourhood full of bars, restaurants and boutiques but also a real life area where people lived. Peering into people’s homes and beautiful interior design was pretty fun,
Here were my 7 highlights:
I’m not sure how we managed to snag a table here as there’s normally a 2-3 week waiting list so do book ahead before you arrive if you fancy a visit. It’s beautiful, atmospheric and tasty. This restaurant is surrounded by lots of boutiques, restaurants and bars.
