Tyresta Nationalpark

Reviewed By J1Walkabout - Tyreso, Sweden

The national park and nature reserve actually span areas in the municipalities of Haninge and Tyresö. The main buildings (museum, visitors' centre etc) are at Tyresta Village in Haninge (buss 807 or 809 from Gullmarsplan in central Stockholm.). If you follow part of the long-distance trail Sörmlandsleden for about 10 km you can get to Nyfors in Tyresö and catch a different bus back to civilisation (873 or 813) Or vice versa, of course!
There are lots of other shorter trails to follow - and a little café at Tyresta By if you didn't bring a picnic. Our favourite walk starts at Nyfors, to go round the area affected by the big forest fire in 1999. (Buy a map at Tyresta - or they may be available at the municipal offices or Libraries in Tyresö or Haninge) Fascinating how the forest and stones were affected and are now recovering...

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.

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.

The back story, history, dedication and most of all the exhibits are astonishing and so well laid out! To do it justice allow 3 hours or more to look around at the ship, stories of those people on board and the dedication of one man against all odds that searched and found the remains. The lessons learnt about the preservation of the ship and timber are fascinating and help us salvage and preserve similar ship wrecks to this day. More than just a history lesson!

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?

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.

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.

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.

WoW What a Beautiful Clean Vibrant place... Had a lovely walk around for over four hours with plenty to see and look at the culture of Sweden... I would highly recommend a vista's if you haven't been before

Great scenery and place of Swedish Naval /military historical interest. Recommend a visit for the interested. Not much to do except for enjoying the grest natural scenery, the hotel and café in the garden. Although it deepens your sense of its historical importance.

Tattby Naturreservat

Reviewed By ProTraveller - Stockholm

I go jogging here a couple of times a week and meet many others who use the trails for jogging and montain-biking so it is rather popular. This weekend however, we went on a family picnic and stopped by the beach at Erstaviksbadet. Granted the water was too cold to go for a swim the grounds where very neat and nice and we had a great time out with the family. Do not expect conveniences so bring food and drinks etc. whatever you need for your walk, workout or day at the beach. I hear you can get ice-cream and coffee during the summer season but have not yet witnessed this myself.
