The sun is shining, the water is shining and summer is in the air. It's a perfect time to visit Stockholm and discover the hidden gems you might miss.
Eva Kalling-Hansson, General Manager at Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, is a true Stockholmer and knows where its secret gems are. Here she shares her tips to help you discover Stockholm in a new way and create unforgettable memories.
"Picnicking on the scenic Djurgården is one of my favorite things to do. It's a cozy and relaxed way to spend the day. Buy something to eat and drink, whether it's oyster and champagne or sausage with bread, then take the tram and find your favorite spot on this green island. Just watch out for the cheeky ducks that are always looking for forgotten or neglected treats."
"Gamla Stan is one of Stockholm's main attractions filled with history, sights, attractions, restaurants, cafes, bars and shopping. If you want a different kind of tour, try the roof top tour and get a great view of Old Town and Stockholm from above. This is definitely something for those who are not afraid of heights!"
"In the Bibliotekstan district, just minutes away from the Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, is Stockholm's center for fashion and luxury. Here you'll find excellent shopping with Scandinavian and international brands such as Acne, Rodebjer, Other Stories and Marc by Marc Jacobs. Don’t forget to stop by the Semper Espresso Bar for good quality coffee."
"Leave the inner city for a while and visit Artipelag - a great place for art and culture. You can easily get there by bus or boat from Nybrokajen, just outside the hotel. Here you can see exhibitions, concerts, enjoy tasty food and buy beautiful home furnishings from their shop. You can’t leave without taking a walk in nature and enjoying the magnificent views, or just sitting on the rocks and eating homemade ice cream."
"Welcome to the Paradise! I strongly recommend everyone to go here, who likes organic, healthy and sustainable food. Here you can stroll around and find new favorites among the shelves."
When staying at Radisson Blu Strand Hotel, which is centrally located in the heart of Stockholm and overlooking the waters of Nybroviken, you are close to subway, trams, buses, boats, and just minutes from Stureplan, Kungsträdgården and Central Station.
