    Motorway E4

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Aug 5, 2007

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Our hotel was on a half-way from Stockholm to airport Arlanda. These were 12 kilometers on motorway E4. When we went on our evening excursion to the city, we flew by these 12 kilometers very quickly. I have missed a turn to the city centre. We continued driving, expecting to see the following index. However in 5-10 minutes we understood, that the city appeared behind us.

    We were very surprised by such small sizes of Stockholm. After huge Moscow this city seemed to us simply tiny!

  • 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.

    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.

    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.

    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…

    How to find Söderstadion

    by Calcio Written Dec 15, 2004

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Situated in the south parts of Stockholm, just beside the famous ice hockey- and concert-stadium Globen. Easiest is to go there with the metro, green line. Go against Farsta, and get off at Gullmarsplan. Then you’re almost there, easy to find by foot.
    By car…? Well, try to… eh… Take the metro! If not, there is at least a parking-garage close to Globen, so parking should be no problem.

    For the best view inside the stadium, try go get a ticket for one of the long sides. From the away-section you won’t see anything at all, so stay out of there!

    Connections with the airport

    by jorgec25 Written Aug 9, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The connection between Stockholm Central Station and Arlanda airport can be made in two different ways:

    The quick way, using Arlanda Express (over 200 SEK one way)that takes about 20 minutes to complete the journey.

    The cheaper way, using the commuter train to Märsta (last stop), and the the Bus to terminal 5 in Arlanda. This journey will take one hour in whole, and the buses are synchronized with the train, and the bus stop is just outside the train station. Both the train and the bus are included in the daily or 3 day tickets (see my subway link for additional info on this tickets)

    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

    Cycling around Stockholm

    by polardabar Written Nov 20, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bicycles are a common way of transportation in Stockholm & all around Sweden [well, all around northern Europe in fact] & a lot of people practice it. There are bicycle routes all around the city & all the roads, street lights & road crossings are adapted for cycling! Take care when crossing the road because even if there's no cars or people, there might be a bike coming - and there might be a mess... ;)

    Taking a bike around the city & using it for sightseeing is also a great idea! You can stop everywhere you want, choose your tempo & still be on time. Be sure it's warm enough though, because the weather could give you some trouble...

    Bike Rental

    by Sjalen Updated Aug 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In 2007, Stockholm introduced a bike rental system similar to that in for instance Copenhagen, where you can lease a bike for a day. A day in this case means three hours, otherwise you have to rent another one, but you can still see a lot in that time and if you get a season card (see below) it is easy to just change bike. You need to buy a card to be able to use them as there is an electonic locker system. This card can be bought at SL public transport centres OR by the company in the link below. A day card is SEK 25 and you can also buy a season card which can be useful if you plan to cycle a lot (currently SEK 200 so it's still a bargain). The bike centres are open 6.00-18.00 from April to October. Find bikes at:

    Norrmalm/City:
    Klarabergsgatan 50 (close to the Central station)
    Norrmalmstorg 9
    Drottninggatan
    Birger Jarlsgatan 12 9
    Klarabergsgatan 56

    Old Town:
    Munkbroleden
    Skeppsbrokajen

    Kungsholmen:
    Drottningholmsv. 13
    S:t Göransgatan 143
    Fleminggatan 4-6

    Vasastan:
    Odenplan mot S:t Eriksgatan 15
    Odenplan mot Sveavägen 15
    S:t Eriksplan 6C 12
    Torsgatan / Vasaparken 6
    Sveavägen 110

    Södermalm:
    Götgatan 45
    Hornsgatan 140
    Renstiernas gata 18
    Folkungagatan 134
    Mariatorget 7
    Södermalmstorg
    Ringvägen 54 9
    Ringvägen 111 (and several other Ringvägen addresses)
    Götgatan 71 9

    Östermalm:
    Valhallavägen / Grev Turegatan by the Stadion
    Valhallavägen at Tekniska Högskolan

    There are more addresses but these are the ones easiest to find for tourists. There is also the traditional bike rental place in Stora Nygatan in the Old Town as shown in the picture.

    Cruise in style

    by Sjalen Written Aug 28, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    This is how busy it gets in the shipping line to central Stockholm on summer afternoons! The left ship is the scheduled ferry to Estonia but the right one is a Costa cruise ship and cruising has been the first way that many have seen Stockholm. Most arrive at Stockholm's Stadsgårdskajen quay where you are right in the city centre. Others are in the Free Harbour ("Frihamnen") which still means you get to sail all the way through the archipelago and end up in Stockholm. Yet other cruise liners pick the cheaper alternative of Nynäshamn, an hour south of Stockholm by regular commuter train (www.sl.se). Amongst companies I see in the city year after year are as already said Costa, but also MSC, Princess, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean, SilverLine and others depending on season.
