Artipelag

Artipelag is an international venue for art, good food, events and activities – beautifully set on Varmdo in the Stockholm Archipelago, just 20 minutes from the city centre. The name Artipelag is a combination of Art, Activities, and Archipelago. It says a lot about what we can offer, but it does not tell it all. Our intention has been to create a destination of high international quality – with boundary-crossing art exhibits, inspiring activities, and good food. Getting here is easy; whether by bus, car or boat. There are 350 parking spaces, a pier for passenger boats from Stockholm City, a long guest marina for visiting private boats and public bus service daily.

Interesting huge slab of concrete in a beautiful archipelago setting. No permanent collection so read up on the current exhibition when deciding if you want to go. Some people love the architecture and how it integrates with the location, I’m not totally convinced. The genuine (wooden) boardwalk leading to the butiksingången is long and gets very slippery in rain, and there’s just a slacky rope to hold on to.

Hamn

Reviewed By Gunilla K - Stockholm, Sweden

Fine location, dont miss the restaurant, but quite small as museum. A bit overpriced as well. OK, the museum covers a small event in the swedish history in the 18th century but why not fill in the bigger picture?

Vasa Museum

The Vasa ship capsized and sank in Stockholm 1628. After 333 years on the sea bed the mighty warship was salvaged and the voyage could continue. Today Vasa is the world's only preserved 17th century ship and the most visited museum in Scandinavia.

Reviewed By Irish M - Zug, Switzerland

Was in town on a work trip and had a few hours with a co-worker to do something local. Some of the local folks we met with said we should check out the Vasa, told us about how it was raised a couple decades ago and the controversial sinking... sounded mildly interesting.
Going inside and seeing it was an overwhelming and awesome experience for me, though. I don’t think I’ve ever seen anything at that scale. I’ve seen historic or replica ships in harbors that look like the old ‘pirate’ish ships from that era, but this just blew my mind. It’s hard to put into words, but if you’re in town you should definitely make it a point to go see the Vasa. Chances are you’ve never seen anything like it even if you think you have.

Yasuragi Day Spa

Reviewed By Norma7610 - Stockholm, Sweden

Beautiful Japanese inspired hotel, the rums are cozy an charming, very comfortable. The breakfast buffet is very good with some Japanese food but all the European breakfast as well.
The best thing is the spa, it's gorgeous with a big swimming pool if you want to exercise and an amazing relax area in Japanese style were you can disconnect and dream away. A little on the expensive side but maybe you're worth it;-)

Millesgarden

Welcome to Millesgården - an oasis just 15 minutes from downtown Stockholm. Millesgården is an artist home, a vast sculpture park with flower beds and Fountains, art gallery, restaurant, antique collection and a museum shop.

Reviewed By StockholmKindaGuy - Atlanta

I was already familiar with the work of Carl Milles, a favorite sculptor of mine. Many of his sculptures adorn the Cranbrook educational community near Detroit, where he taught for 20 years. Like Cranbrook, Millesgården offers a beautiful environment to showcase his most important works, having once been his home and studio. There's approximately 200 to see.
The park has this magical and enchanting quality about it that reminded me of the "Lord of the Rings" movies. It made for an enjoyable walk. I was pleasantly surprised to see works by Marshall Fredericks, a Michigan sculptor famous for his "Spirit of Detroit' sculpture, who studied under Milles.
In addition to the Sculpture Park, you can also view Milles' home and studio, complete with molds, as well as the beautiful home of his assistant Anne, with furniture designed by Josef Frank. There's also a gallery with temporary Exhibitions.

There's a lot to see, so give yourself enough time. By the time you finish your visit, you should have a good understanding of this important artist's life. I would advise going on a sunny day if possible. There's a cafe/restaurant on the grounds, as well as a nice gift shop. I picked up a beautiful book on Millisgården.
Adult Admission is 150 SEK. You can easily reach Millesgården using public transportation. It's short walk from the bus/tram stop.
If you're in Stockholm, this is a must do.

Mycket skoj över förväntan blev mycket skratt och adrenalinpåslag. Det uppskattas. Kanske inte att rekommendera för de med höjdskräck dock tummas det inte på säkerheten.

Saltsjobadens Friluftsbad

Reviewed By PD3S

Schitteren badhuis uit 1925 op hetzelfde eiland waas de KSSS is gevestigd. Mooi oud houten gebouw dat enige jaren geleden gerestaureerd is. Het is voor ons nu in juli nog veel te koud om te gaan zwemmen maar uit de foto's blijkt dat de Zweden hier niet mee zitten. Toch was het zwembad nu leeg...

Stockholm Old Town

The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

Reviewed By Keggfish - Perth, Western Australia

Wonderful old town with fantastic architecture, beautifully preserved and looked after. Unfortunately, as with many tourist spots, the main streets are chock-a-block of shops flogging evrything possible to tourists, but get in the back streets and things quickly change. Just a lovely experience, especially in the cool of winter. Fantastic tasteful christmas lights.

Kaatach

Reviewed By Anna B - Tyreso, Sweden

Big inside and outside area for the kids to play in. Inside there are cars to sit in and drive around a mini village (my daughter's favorite) as well as a small climbing area and climbing frame with slides.
Outside there is a small Tivoli (some rides included in the entrance ticket, some not) and a lot of climbing frames, trampolines, a labyrinth, boat area and more.
The cafe has ok food for a decent price, also alternatives for the most common allgergies (milk/egg/gluten as well as pork and vegan alternatives)
Entrance is 120 sek for kids, adults enter without fee. Easy to reach with bus from Tyresö Centrum.

Barnkulan

Reviewed By challan - Ljungskile, Sweden

Blev väldigt överraskad när jag hittade till detta lekland i lite mindre storlek. Det finns hoppborg, rutschkana, klätterställning och mycket leksaker.
Det finns även ett litet café med både kaffebröd och lättare smårätter. Barnen som är 5 och 6 år tyckte detta var väldigt bra!
