When to go

In winter, the city gets just five hours of daylight, but is magical under a blanket of snow. Summer brings jubilant scenes of schnapps and seafood, though July can be quiet as locals head to their summer-island homes and many restaurants close.

Tales from our travels

Getting there

  • Planes

    Arlanda airport is 40km from the centre. From there, Flygbussarna and Swebus both connect with the city centre in 45 minutes. If you end up flying into Skavsta airport, a bus into Stockholm takes 90 minutes.
  • Trains

    The Arlanda Express train takes you into Stockholm Central station in a snappy 20 minutes. From here you can access Stockholm’s underground, the Tunnelbana; the city’s very walkable, though, so you may not need it.
  • Automobiles

    Taxis are readily available. A car is only an advantage if you want to leave the city centre. Otherwise, you can reach everything on two feet or two wheels.
  • Taxis

    You can hail cabs on the street; taxi's aren't cheap but they do, handily, accept payment by debit and credit card (including AmEx).
