Stockholm – the most stylish city I’ve ever had the pleasure of visiting. Here are 10 things I think you should do when you visit.

1. Catch the sunset if you can.

In the five days I was in Stockholm, we were only to see the sunset once. So if you are blessed with clear skies while you’re there, do take a few moments to soak in the sunset.

2. Sip a latte at Drop Coffee, rated the 3rd best coffee shop in the world.

They didn’t have soy milk or almond milk (usually how I drink my latte), but they did have ‘oat milk’ which I thoroughly enjoyed. 🙂

3. Take a burger break at Vigarda Barbeque.

I got the original burger (expecting, you know – an original cheeseburger), and to my surprise, I’m blessed with a lump of delicious pulled pork sandwiched in-between a perfectly grilled beef mound and toasted bun. Yum.

4. Do get a Swedish hotdog in the street.

’cause it’s damn good.

5. Walk the bridge over to Sodermalm to soak in this view at night.

There is water everywhere in Stockholm, and the lights reflecting off of that water is always absolutely magical.

6. Take the metro whenever you can.

Traveler-friendly – there aren’t too many trains going in completely different directions, most stations notify of you how long until the next train comes, and the trains are clean plus have padded seats.

…and because cabs are WAY TOO EXPENSIVE.

7. Dance ’til you drop.

If you’re in town for the weekend, do go out and dance ’til you drop. Most Stockholm locals don’t go out late during the week, and many bars close at 1 AM.

Check out Berns (multi-floor nightclub) and Trädgården (multi-floor club under a bridge).

8. Go shopping, anywhere.

Stockholm is home to some of the best shopping in the world. The design is minimal, well-fitted, tailored and overall sleek.

My favorite area to shop was in the neighborhood of Ostermalm – a bit on the pricier end, but if you’re used to paying foreign prices on Swedish designer items, you’ll be glad to find that the Swedish brands you love are much cheaper in Stockholm.

9. Explore Gamla Stan, the old town in Stockholm.

Complete with cobblestone streets, beautifully bright buildings contrasted against a usually grey sky – this neighborhood has a Scandinavian charm that you’ll love.

10. Eat at Nook in Sodermalm.

Started by a Swede and a Korean, this restaurant combines Swedish cuisine with Korean flavors. I’m not always a fan of fusion, but this place was awesome.

i agree, stockholm is so stylish. i am so sad i didn’t know about drop when i went! did you visit rosendal tradgard when you were there? wandering through the rose gardens and eating in the greenhouse cafe was one of my favorite parts of my time in the city.

I plan on visiting here in the summer, and am definitely going to try a few of these things on the list, like visit Gamla Stan- it looks like such a charming little town. Also the food is amazing so I must try it while I’m there- those burgers look to die for haha.

I’m definitely saving this post because Stockholm is one of the places I really, REALLY want to visit in my lifetime. I’ve been to a few other European countries so far, but I definitely plan on hitting Sweden at some point…hopefully sooner rather than later!
