Are there any cafés at Centralstationen in Stockholm? Do they work at night?

How does a traveller go about toilets? I don’t remember seeing any in the city last time I was there, though it was long ago.

There's a lot of cafés and restaurants there. Don't know if they're open at night though. There is toilets at the station, just follow the signs.

I was able to go to the toilet at the Cityterminalen, walking distance from the Central station.

There is a very nice toilet at the NK Shopping Mall. I paid SEK 10 to use the toilet, but it was worth it! It was very very clean and very pretty inside---

With regards to the cafés, there are a lot of places to eat at the Central station. I was able to go to an internet café where I paid SEK 29 for a cup of coffee plus free use of the internet. I thought it was cheap.

There are zillions of coffee places some are open very late. There are official public toilets and then there are toilet in any hotel bar and restaurants as well as local cafe's and pubs. Just behave as you are a regular customer and you can easily use any of those.

Thank you!

Hope they can change a 500 note - my bank has no smaller !

There are several cafés at the Central station but they close around 22.00 - sometimes earlier. Ritazza in the central hall is one that is open a bit longer than some others. Then there are burger bars, O'Reilly's Boston sports bar etc.

Yes, Sweden does have an issue with public toilets. There are too few and those existing are rarely staffed but just "huts" where you need change. The one in the Central station IS staffed but cost you a whopping ten crowns these days if my memory serves me right. But do as already proposed and visit a hotel lobby or so - Swedish teenagers use McDonalds :)))

Good point, Sjalen,
McDonald's is quite popular here for the same reason :)

Travel Tips for Stockholm

Fun Jump

You can find this at Kungstrådgarden. Most of the times you can only see kids are playing it but don't be ashamed to try it, we always have that child's part inside all of us right?! 50SEK for 5 mins.

Tre Kronor

by Pieter11

A thing you will see often during a visit to Sweden is the national symbol: Tre Kronor. This litterly means Three Crowns. It points to the period of the Union of Kalmar. In the year 1397 this union was started. It united Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Denmark was the centre of this Union. It took 125 years before the Union ended and Sweden got back its independancy, but still this period has an important influence on the country.

The Royal Palace of Sweden is still named after this period: Tre Kronor.

This symbol is also added on top of the tower of the Cityhall.

The Swedish national Icehockey team is still called Tre Kronor by the public, and all national sportteam carry the Three Crowns on their shirts.

In the very centre of Stockholm, at Hotorget, you find The Concert
Hall, house of the Royal Stockholm Phillarmonic Orchestra. In front of it,
the sculptor Carl Milles created the famous Orpheus fountain.

The Royal Palaces

The history of Stockholm
The Royal Palaces

On the island "Stockholmen", where freshwater from Mälaren flows out into the salt Baltic Sea, there has been a fortification of some kind since the 11th century. On that location several castles have been erected.

Tre kronor

The Castle "Tre Kronor" got its name from the sign of three golden crowns, on the top of one of the towers, put there by king Johan III in late 15th century. The buildings from the Middle Age was a bit outdated and they were not representative for this Swedish era of greatness. Architect Nicodemus Tessin was given the task to rebuild the castle and he had a church and new castle building ready by 1697. At the same time as Karl XI was laying lit-de-parade (he just died), fire broke out and demolished all of the old buildings and also part of the new castle.

The fire was a disaster, not only for the buildings, but maybe even more the artefacts in the castle. A large part of the royal collections, like art, the National archives, the Royal library (one of the finer in Europe in that time) and other priceless things, were destroyed. The sign Tre Kronor was lost in the fire. Today that symbol is on the top of the tower of the City hall (and also on the costumes of the beloved national ice hockey team)

A Stockholm Christmas

by yooperprof

Christmas is a big deal in Stockholm. Holiday concerts abound, and candles burn (or glow electrically) from almost every window. Christmas markets sprout around the city, and cafes and restaurants offer Glugwein, a warmed, sweeted punch-like wine. If you have the good fortune to be in Stockholm - or anywhere in "the North" - for Christmas, you'll realize what a good idea it is to have a major festival of light and rebirth immediately after the winter solstice. This tall Christmas tree stands on Skeppsbrokajen in Gamla Stan. It's especially beautiful when illuminated at night - which is most of the time here.
