What to do in Stockholm

Explore Millesgården

Beautiful terraces, fountains and stairways adorn this property, but it is the exceptional sculptures in the garden that make it worth the visit. Overlooking the waters of Värtan, sculptor Carl Milles decided in 1906 it was the perfect place to build his house and make a space for his and his wife’s work.

Wander the streets of Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan is the old part of the city and is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. Not only is it one of the most impressive medieval centres in Europe, the cobbled streets are full of shops and cafes. The churches of Gamla Stan are among the largest in the world. Stockholm Cathedral is a good starting point.

Socialise at Icebar Stockholm

As the first permanent ice bar in the world, Icebar Stockholm is made entirely of frozen water from the Torne River in northern Sweden. The only things that aren't made of ice are the beverages and the staff. Be sure to wrap up warm before entering, unless you want to become part of the furniture.
