Where to eat

A classic café serving lots of Swedish treats for breakfast. Try the egg and fish roe sandwich on rasin bread.

Stroll through the gardens at Rosendals and stop for lunck or fika (afternoon tea) in one of the glasshouses.

This is a little apple orchard/factory and garden outside of Stockholm in the Archipelago - on an island called Ekero. If you have a car I recommend a drive out this way for lunch amongst the apple trees one sunny day.

Great spot for lunch on a sunny day down on the water in the middle of Stockholm. Made up of a myriad of gardens and wooden benches.
Norrmälarstrand 64


Oaxen Slip And Oaxen Krog

Go to Oaxen Slip for a modern Swedish a la carte dinner - go to Oaxen Krog for the more elaborate degustation dinner. Delicious.
Beckholmsvägen 26

A Stockholm institution serving classic Swedish fare. Try the signature toast skagen for entrée (prawns on toast) or the meatballs with lingonberry jam for main.

Where to stay

Prince Van Orangien at Oaxen Slip

Linked to the Oaxen Slip & Krog Restaurants - stay in a restored boat as hotel. Great Gatsby-esque glamour.

A guest house in the Archipelago

Most Stockholmers retreat to a 'summer house' during the warmer months somewhere on the sprawling archipelago. For the authentic Swedish experience, you can't go past a classic timber house by the lake. I recommend staying with Birgitta and Lars-Olof here:


Best galleries

Nestled in the Swedish forest on the water's edge, this art gallery is outside of Stockholm but definitely worth the visit. Walk through the forest up to the gallery and stay for lunch. Artipelagstigen 1

I went to Millesgarden to see the Josef Frank exhibition and fell in love with the sculpture gardens. Just outside of Stockholm on your way out to the Archipelago - this place is definitely worth a visit. A great place to stop for lunch also!

Where to buy homewares

Svenskt Tenn

Absolutely fell in love with everything Svenskt Tenn! Their print archive and furniture collection has defined Sweden - there is a little piece of Svenskt Tenn in every Swedish home. A dreamy store that is not to be missed!
