Public ferries

by Paulo_Pinto

Can we visit the islands near Stockolm ( Brika, Grinda, Vaxholl etc ) by public boats instead of tourist boats ?

Waxholmsbolaget is the carrier that offers island hopping: http://www.waxholmsbolaget.se/skargardstrafik_/en/batluff.aspx - but I guess they're a bit of a tourist boat.

I haven't seen any local traffic other than the ferry between Slussen and Djurgården.

De nada :)

Also, I think Strömma is the one carrier going to Birka but I'm not 100% sure.

Re: Public ferries

Waxholmsbolaget IS a public boat, it's just that they run touristy steam ships in summer (and those are also popular with locals because they are lovely). Commuters take quicker boats between their homes (or summer houses where they live during the summer) and work in the city.

You will find Waxholmsbolaget boat schedules in the SL public transport information www.sl.se even if the boats have their own commuter cards and fees.

It gets worse to Birka which is in Lake Mälaren rather than in the archipelago even if some commute to islands there too. The boats are run by Strömma which is a more touristy company, and moreover, they have a deal when it comes to Birka so they have guides on board and are the only ones to do this run from Stockholm itself.

There is a smaller boat (also Strömma) from one of the Mälar islands too (Adelsö) which is less touristy but still full of history buffs going to Birka. This also means that you have to get all the way to Adelsö first which is a bit of a trek from Stockholm. Adelsö has the remains of the Birka king's fortress which is why there is a boat between the two (see my Ekerö page).

Travel Tips for Stockholm

Sightseeing by boat

by HORSCHECK

Stockholm is built on 14 islands, therefore several boat companies offer all kind of sightseeing tours by boat. Most tours are multilingual and the boats leave from Stromkajen (by the Grand Hotel) or from the Nybrokajen.

Drottningholm Palace...

by CandS

Visit Drottningholm Palace (the residence of the Swedish Royal Family), and while you are there make sure you take a guided tour of the Palace Theatre...it is the definate highlight! We had a special tour since we were the only ones there that day and it was fabulous! It's amazing to know the stories behind these old places...

I really loved this palace, it was one of my favourites in all of the European cities we visited. It was a little way out of Stockholm but worth the trip.

At the time it costed 50 KR for adults but with the Stockholm card it is free...

"Tre kronor"

by Kuznetsov_Sergey

The symbol of Sweden "Tre kronor" - an image of three crowns is the arms of the Sweden. It became its major national symbol. The main Royal palace in Stockholm, the most popular Swedish beer and a national team of Sweden refers "Tre kronor".

Three crowns appeared in the Swedish heraldry in the middle of the XIV century and, possibly, symbolized three bible Magi. King Magnus Ericson who approved the arms officially, considered three crowns as an illustration to his title - 'The King of Sweden, Norway and Skone".

Stroll along the waterside and bring your pic-nic.

In the early summer night (when it's sunny) nothing could be better than to enjoy Stockholm sunset on any of the west shores of the city, for example:

- Gälarparken and the walk to the tivoli ferry (on Djurgården)

- Skeppsholmen and Kastellholmen (the two islands opposite the Castle)

- Riddarholmen (island connected by bridge from Gamla stan, the Old Town)

- Långholmen (the park island north of the south part of the city, Södermalm)

Short of time but want to see the Archipelago?
A miniature version you'll find only 20 minutes by boat from Slussen or Nybrokajen to Fjäderholmarna. Fish restaurant, marine museum, cliffs, views.

Escalator culture

by Sjalen

Stockholm people are often in a hurry, trying to be efficient with their time. This is why you find everyone standing to the right in escalators, leaving the left side to those who want to WALK up. This is taken quite seriously and at rush hour, you may even find yourself being shouted at if you don't respect this rule and stand in the way of people.
