    How to find Råsunda stadium

    by Calcio Written Dec 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Swedish national stadium is situated outside Stockholm, in Solna. Easiest to get there from the city is to take the metro, blue line, against Akalla. Get off at Solna centrum, and you’ll exit the metro right outside the stadium’s south stands.

    By car: From the south, just follow “Essinge-leden” against Solna. DON’T go into Stockholm, as you will have trouble to find out again…
    Drive against Solna centrum, and you’ll see the stadium after a while. There aren’t too many parking-places around the stadium, but you should be able to find something, just follow the P-signs. Be sure to pay for the parking though, in the machines, as it seems like the community tries to fix the budget every year by ticketing football-spectator’s cars…

  • Gardes Loppet (Vintage car show in Stockholm)

    by Mariajoy Written Aug 24, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    On our little cycle round the Djurgarden we came across this vintage car show. Lots of Swedes proudly displaying their collectors cars and motorbikes... all shiny and gleaming! This event takes place on the first Sunday in June at the Sodra Djurgarden. It includes a parade, a race and a classic car exhibition.

    Horse and Carriage Ride

    by wadekorzan Updated Jun 12, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    For something different, you could take a horse and carriage ride through Stockholm's old town, the "Gamla Stan". The ride is guided and lasts for about 45 minutes.

    Price: 90 Swedish Krone. They also have "family tickets": 2 adults and 2 children : 200 Swedish Krone

    Rent a bicycle

    by wadekorzan Updated Jun 3, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I did a ton of walking around Stockholm as I think this is the best way to get around to really see alot. However, it is nice to rent a bike for a couple of hours or even for a day because you can cover alot more ground than by foot. There is a very convenient bicycle rental place just at the entrance to the Royal Garden (Djurgarden). It is located on the right just as you cross the bridge called Djurgardsbron when you go into the Royal Garden. They also rent roller blades, canoes, and kayaks. Bikes are a great way to explore the extensive Royal Garden with all of its attractions.

    Price of a bicycle for a whole day was about 250 Swedish Krone, but you can also rent by the hour.

    The Tvärbanan tram line

    by vec Written Feb 27, 2004

    4 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    My favourite among the public transportation in Stockholm is the Tvärbanan tram line, running from Alvik to Sickla Udde, passing by Liljeholmen, Gullmarsplan and the Globe Arena.

    With this tram line you will get some good view over Stockholm, especially from the bridges near Alvik. From there the view is stunning.

    The travel pass for subway and busses are also valid on the tram line. Daytime it's a train in each direction every 10 minute. Just remember that you have to press a button when you want to leave on the next station, else the driver might not stop.

    Djug?rden Ferries

    by yooperprof Written Jan 6, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Take advantage of the Djug?rden ferries. They leave from the pier in front of the Grand Hotel, and the quay at Karl Johan?s Torg on Gamla Stan, and go directly to Djug?rten and its attractions: the Tivoli amusement park, the Vasa Ship museum, and the Skansen outdoor museum.

    Bicycles in Winter!

    by yooperprof Updated Jan 5, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Hand to the Stockholmers - they do not give up riding their bikes just because it's winter and there's a little snow on the ground! But there's probably a story behind this bicycle, which I discovered while on an afternoon walk around Riddarholmen. It seems to have been suddenly abandoned here. Perhaps it was stolen "on a lark" and taken for a joy ride. I hope it was able to find its way back to its proper home.

    Probably the cheapest way to get to Stockholm City. But there are several stops before City. For prices and timetables look at the website (in english).
