6 Top Tourist Attractions in Sweden

Tags :

Category : Europe , Sweden

The Nordic country of Sweden is a rich cultural destination with breathtaking scenery. Progressive and peaceful, Sweden’s long history provides plenty of incredible landmarks, architecture, and museums to choose from. Most visitors who come to Sweden start their trip in Stockholm, the country’s largest city and its capital. There is no question that Stockholm’s attractions are world class, but don’t forget to explore the other amazing spots throughout the country. These top tourist attractions in Sweden include historic towns, national parks and bucket list items you won’t want to miss.

16. Sarek National Park

Sarek National Park

 

One of the oldest national parks in Europe is Sarek National Park, which is located in Jokkmokk in Swedish Lapland. The park is a must-visit destination for hikers and mountaineers, because it is home to six of Sweden’s major mountains. In total, Sarek National Park is home to more than 200 peaks and over 100 glaciers. Gorgeous mountain peeks, miles of hiking and tremendous natural beauty make Sarek one of the most incredible places in Sweden.

15. Uppsala Domkyrka

Uppsala Domkyrka

 

There is plenty of great architecture in the university city of Uppsala, but one attraction stands out: The Domkyrka. The Domkyrka, or cathedral, dominates the city’s skyline and is also the largest church in all of Scandinavia. As the seat of the Church of Sweden, it is also the final resting place for many Swedish royals. The cathedral dates back to the 13th century, and its three gothic spires are truly breathtaking.

14. Vasa Museum

Vasa Museum

 

The Vasa Museum, or Vasamuseet, is located in the Djurgården, a vast royal park in the Östermalm district of Stockholm. While Sweden’s capital city is home to plenty of excellent museums, the Vasa Museum is often cited as one of the best. The start exhibition at the Vasa Museum is Vasa herself, a wholly preserved Swedish warship from the 17th century. Vasa was pulled from the water in 1961 and meticulously restored, and it offers incredible insight into marine life and industry in the 17th century.

13. Oresund Bridge

Oresund Bridge

 

The Öresundsbron, or Oresund Bridge, is one of the most important bridges in Europe. This bridge connects Sweden and Denmark at one of the busiest border crossings. Oresund Bridge is the longest combined road and rail bridge on the continent, and it stretches from the Swedish city of Malmö across to the Danish city of Copenhagen. You can drive over the bridge, but you can also take a bus or train to cross between the border and venture out for a day trip to Denmark.

12. Are Ski Resort

Are Ski Resort

 

The Are Ski Resort is located in the region of Jämtland. Are is one of Sweden’s top winter sports destinations, and it boasts over 100 slopes and more than 40 ski lifts. There are three major ski areas to choose from: Björnen, the High Zone and Duved-Tegefjäll. Björnen is ideal for families, boasting longer slopes. The High Zone is the busiest with the most runs, and Duved-Tegefjäll is less crowded and offers opportunities to ski off piste.

11. Gammelstad Church Town

Gammelstad Church Town

 

Just outside of the city of Lulea, in Sweden’s Lapland region, is the old church town of Gammelstad. Also known as Gammelstads kyrkstad, this collection of structures dates back to the 15th century. The highlight is the old stone church, which is surrounded by more than 400 wooden houses. The simple houses are all red and white, and they were used by countryside residents who came into town for church services or events. This unusual attraction shows the communal spirit and country lifestyle that dominates in the remote parts of Sweden.

10. Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan

 

If you only have a day or two to explore the capital city of Stockholm, make sure you spent it in the area of Gamla Stan. This is the old town, and it offers beautiful waterfront views as well as countless historically significant landmarks and attractions. While visiting Gamla Stan, you can admire the 17th century Royal Palace, which is home to the King of Sweden. Or, you could tour the Stockholm Cathedral, see the House of Nobility and explore the collections and exhibits at the Museum of Medieval Stockholm.

9. Kalmar Castle

Kalmar Castle

 

Dating back to the early 11th century, Kalmar is one of the oldest cities in all of Sweden. Kalmar Castle was constructed in 1160, but it is remarkably well preserved. The castle overlooks the Kalmar Strait, and the waterfront views make it look spectacular from afar. In addition to its aesthetic appeal, Kalmar Castle is historically significant. It was in Kalmar Castle that Denmark, Norway and Sweden joined forces in the 14th century, and it is also the site of a major 17th century battle.

8. Lund Domkyrka

Lund Domkyrka

 

The university city of Lund, in Scania, is more than 1,000 years old. One of its oldest and most impressive structures that still stands is the Lund Domkyrka, or the Lund Cathedral. Built in 1103, the cathedral is the second oldest in the Nordic area. It is constructed from sandstone, and the entrance is formed by two stunning and oversized brass doors. Twice a day, the cathedral’s astronomical clock puts on quite a show that is worth checking out.

7. Jokkmokk Winter Market

Jokkmokk Winter Market

 

The small town of Jokkmokk in Swedish Lapland comes alive every February thanks to the Jokkmokk Winter Market. The hosts are the indigenous Sámi people, but tourists from throughout Sweden and even around the world come for this incredible occasion. For three wonderful days, you can expect folk dancing, reindeer racing, traditional costumes and lots of vendors. You can buy souvenirs and soak up the incredible culture that bright color and vibrancy to the cold days of February.

6. Visby

Visby

 

The largest island in Sweden is Gotland, and the island’s capital is the town of Visby. This spot is a common vacation destination for Swedish residents on the mainland, because Visby boasts so much medieval architecture. The city’s 13th century ringwall still stands, and you can tour the 13th century church called Sankta Maria Kyrka, which is still in use to this day. Visby is packed with old church ruins, art galleries, museums and plenty of opportunities to enjoy traditional Swedish cuisine.

5. Ales Stenar

Ales Stenar

 

In the city of Ystad, in Southern Sweden, is Ales Stenar. This monument is known as the Stonehenge of Sweden, and it is easy to understand the comparison. Ales Stenar is an enormous stone ship created by 59 large sandstone boulders. The monument dates back to the Nordic Iron Age, which is approximately 600 AD and even before the Viking Age. Opt for a guided tour of Ales Stenar so you can get some history and context when admiring the incredible stone monument in Ystad.

4. Drottningholm Palace

Drottningholm Palace

 

Although Sweden is home to countless castles and palaces, one of the most famous is found in Lovö island in the center of Lake Mälaren. Drottningholm Palace was constructed in the 16th century, and it is now a residence of the Swedish Royal Family. However, much of the palace and its grounds are open to the public. The baroque and English gardens, in particular, are immensely popular. The Chinese Pavilion in the gardens is beautiful, and it is considered to be one of Sweden’s top architectural attractions.

3. Abisko National Park

Abisko National Park

In the Lapland region of Northern Sweden, you’ll find the Abisko National Park. It is one of the northernmost parks in the country, and it is home to the Abisko Scientific Research Station. If you’re visiting the park, you’ll likely be interested in doing some hiking. The famous Kungsleden hiking trail is nearly 500 km (300 miles) long, and it starts right from Abisko. In the winter, there are also opportunities for skiing and snowboarding. Be on the lookout for wildlife that includes moose, reindeer and bears.

2. Stockholm archipelago

Stockholm archipelago

 

Just minutes from the capital city of Stockholm, you’ll arrive at the Stockholm Archipelago. This is a staggering collection of more than 30,000 islands, some of which are large and inhabited and others that are mere rocks in the water. The archipelago is known for excellent sailing, incredible scenery and for being a retreat for many writers and artists in Scandinavia. If you want to stroll on a sandy beach or kayak in crystal clear water, but still be just a short distance from Stockholm, then the archipelago is absolutely worth visiting.

1. Icehotel

#1 of Tourist Attractions In Sweden

The small village of Jukkasjärvi in Northern Sweden is home to the incredible Icehotel. Every year, the entire hotel is rebuilt using snow and ice blocks taken from the nearby Torne River. The Icehotel is always under freezing temperature to ensure stability. Even the bar is carved from ice, and the glasses themselves are made from ice! Furs, animal skins and high-quality sleeping bags ensure comfortable temperatures for guests, and you can only stay in the Icehotel between December and April of each year.

10 Best Places to Visit in Sweden

Tags :

Category : Europe , Sweden

Sweden is famous around the world for lots of things: Saab and Volvo automobiles, the music group ABBA, pickled herring and the DIY megastore IKEA. It is equally as famous for its stunning scenery, picturesque fishing villages, being the land of reindeer and endless summer sun. Sweden is filled with colorful wooden buildings, traditional huts, stone fortresses and cathedrals, and some pretty innovative contemporary architecture. Whether it’s hiking trails or art museums you’re looking for, Sweden has it. An overview of the best places to visit in Sweden:

10. Kosterhavet National Park

Kosterhavet National Park

 

Sweden has lots of coastline, no doubt about that, but the best place to observe marine line under protected circumstances is Kosterhavet National Park. Kosterhavet, which borders Norway, is the country’s first marine national park. With 6,000 species of marine life, the park is home to several species that can’t be found anywhere else in Sweden. The park is centered around the shores and sea of the Koster Islands. Kosterhavet’s coral reefs make it popular with snorkelers and divers, while landlubbers can enjoy quaint fishing villages waiting to be turned into picture postcards.

9. Marstrand

Marstrand

 

Marstrand, a city since 1200, is known for two things: sailing and an old fortress. This seaside community, located on an island in western Sweden, hosts the annual Match Cup Sweden, an important sailing competition. It also is home to the 17th century Carlsten Fortress, a majestic stone structure that guards the city. Visitors describe Marstrand, which makes a good day trip from Gothenburg, as a “Kodak moment” so be prepared to take lots of pictures of the ornate, pastel-colored historic buildings that line cobblestone streets. Other “don’t miss” attractions include the Strandverket Art Museum, the restored Pater Noster Lighthouse, and scenic hiking trails.

8. Malmo 

Malmo

 

Something old, something new is perhaps the best way to describe Malmo, a medieval historic city with a landscape that’s studded with modern, contemporary buildings. Sweden’s third largest city has a marvelous Old Town (Gamla Stoden) with three main squares: Stortoget, Lilla Torg and Gustav Adolfs Torg. Old Town is also where you’ll find the castle Malmohus Slott. This multicultural city, with 150 ethnicities, is linked via Oresund Bridge to Denmark. A must-see “new” attraction is the Turning Torso, an architectural masterpiece that twists more than 190 meters (600 feet) into the sky, making it Sweden’s most talked about building.

7. Ystad

Ystad

 

Ystad, a coastal town in southern Sweden, is sure to draw sleuths and murder mystery fans. Noted author Henning Mankell set his Kurt Wallender detective novels in Ystad and the surrounding area. Notable buildings you’ll find used in his books include Greyfriars Abbey, one of Sweden’s best preserved medieval monasteries, and the Church of the Virgin Mary, a large medieval church; both are outstanding examples of Gothic Hansa architecture. A walking tour over cobblestone streets also will take you past picturesque pastel-colored half-timbered buildings. A walk on the town’s pretty sandy beaches is called for, too. East of Ystad is the megalithic monument of Ales Stenar, consisting of 59 large boulders forming a stone ship.

6. Stockholm archipelago

Stockholm archipelago

 

If you’re into island hopping, then touring the Stockholm archipelago could be just your cup of akavit. Obviously, you won’t have time to visit every island since there are 30,000 of them – big rocks jutting up from the sea count here. Ferries serve major points in the archipelago, beginning with a 10-minute boat ride from Stockholm. Visit a World War I fortress at Starofortet or Vaxholm, the “capital” of the archipelago with its ornate buildings and a history of herring fishing. Indulge yourself at a spa in Nacka, the closest to Stockholm and accessible by motor vehicle.

5. Uppsala

Uppsala

 

Uppsala, located 70 km (44 miles) north of Stockholm, is the religious center of Sweden, and has been since the 12th century. Prior to Christianity, Uppsala was known for idols of Norse gods. The Uppsala Cathedral, seat of the archbishop of Sweden, is the largest cathedral in Scandinavia. Education is important here, too, with Uppsala University, which was founded in 1477, making it one of the oldest colleges in Scandinavia. The Fyris River runs through the city, with the medieval section located west of the river. Both the cathedral and Uppsala Castle dominate the skyline here. Eighteenth century botanist Carl Linnaeus lived in Uppsala, so check out the botanical garden next to the castle.

4. Swedish Lapland

Swedish Lapland

 

If it’s wilderness adventure you’re seeking, there’s no better place to visit in Sweden than Swedish Lapland. Located in the far north above the Arctic Circle where summer shines around the clock. Lapland is for canoers, hikers and viewers of wildlife. Swedish Lapland is inhabited by the hardy, indigenous Sami. Who live in massive forests and barren tundra. A good way to experience the region is to drive the 359-km (223-mile) long Wilderness Way from the canoeing center at Stromsund to the terminus at Vilhelmina, a church town, via Fatmomakke, where you’ll see traditional wooden huts. Winter visitors can buy reindeer hides at Jokkmokk, the center of Sami life.

 

3. Gothenburg 

Gothenburg

 

Gothenburg, located on Sweden’s west coast, is a green city dotted with numerous parks of all sizes. Many of the parks date back to the 19th century, including Kungsparken, a park that circles the canal that rings around the city center., If you’re more interested in amusement parks, head to Liseberg, which has more rides than any amusement park in Scandinavia. The largest port city in Scandinavia, Gothenburg also boasts the region’s largest film festival as well as numerous music festivals throughout the year. Hungry? Try a haga bulle, a large cinnamon roll at Haga, a district known for its picturesque wooden houses.
WHERE TO STAY IN GOTHENBURG?

 

2. Gotland 

Gotland

 

As Sweden’s largest island, surrounded totally by the Baltic Sea, you’d think fishing would be the island’s main industry. Not so. Agriculture, tourism and information technology are among the top industries. The island is one of Sweden’s most popular tourist destinations; sun seekers like it because it has more sunlight during the year than any other place in Sweden. Visby, the only city on the island, is a beautiful walled Hanseatic town which has preserved most of its townscape and historic buildings. There are also around 100 medieval churches and countless prehistoric sites on the island.

1. Stockholm

#1 of Best Places To Visit In Sweden

 

Stockholm, a pretty city set on 14 islands, has a lot going for it as Sweden’s capital and the largest city in Scandinavia. Founded in the 13th century, Stockholm is where the annual Nobel Prizes are given out. The Vasa Museum, dedicated to a 17th century warship that sank on its maiden voyage, is Scandinavia’s most visited museum. Stockholm is easier on your budget than other Nordic cities, offering free admission to 15 museums, including the Swedish History, Medieval Museum, Royal Armoury and Skokloster Castle. You also won’t want to miss the Royal Palace, Modern Art Museum and City Hall.

TOP 10 things to do in Stockholm, Sweden

Category : Sweden , Visit Europe

streets Stockholm

1. Gamla Stan (Old Town)

Stockholm’s Old Town dates back to the 1200 Century and is packed with many quaint cafes, bars, restaurants, trinket shops and endless cobblestone alleyways. For any new visitors to the city of Stockholm, Gamla Stan is a perfect starting point to get a feel for the city and its history. In many ways, the Old Town is an open-air museum in itself. If you have time to explore deeper, be sure to stop inside the Stockholm Cathedral and Royal Palace – both giving a clear insight into different aspects of Swedish history and culture.

Vasa Museum

2. Vasa Museum

The Vasa Museum is home to the incredible Vasa Ship, intended to be the pride and joy of the Swedish imperial fleet, but as it happened sank in its first voyage in 1628. Then in 1961, an enormous operation began to recover the wreckage that stands today inside the Vasa museum for onlookers to observe and educate themselves on naval history. With more than one million visitors per year to the Vasa, this is Sweden’s most visited museum.

Hours: Open Daily 10am-5pm (Wednesdays 10am-8pm, September-May), 8.30am-6pm, June-August
Admission: Adults SEK 130, Under 18s free
Address: Galärvarvsvägen, 1411521 Stockholm
Official site: www.vasamuseet.se

Stockholm 5

3. The Royal Palace

Whilst you’re in Gamla Stan, be sure to head to the Royal Palace – once the official residence of the King of Sweden. Nowadays the Royal family live elsewhere on an outlying island protected by UNESCO World Heritage listing, but a visit to the official Royal Palace is still a must.

Hours: Open Daily 10am-5pm
Admission: Adults SEK150, Under 18’s SEK75
Location: Gamla Stan
Official site: www.kungahuset.se

 

Skansen Museum

4. Skansen Open Air Museum

As the world’s first open-air museum, Skansen remains a favourite for visitors to the city of Stockholm. There are over 150 different buildings to explore and a great range of Swedish cuisine as well!

Hours: Open daily
Admission: Adults SEK100-150, under 15s SEK60, infants free (prices & opening times vary with season)
Address: Djurgårdsslätten 49-51, 11521 Stockholm
Official site: www.skansen.se

Stockholm gold room

5. The City Hall

As one of Stockholm’s most iconic buildings, the City Hall has as beautiful an interior as it does on the exterior. Be sure to stop by and take a short tour of the building… just don’t miss the Gold Room! Inside you’ll find no less than 18 million gold mosaic tiles.

Hours: Open daily – guided tours only
Admission: Adults SEK70-100, Under 17s SEK20-40, Under 12s free (seasonal prices)
Address: Ragnar Östbergs Plan 1, 11220 Stockholm
Official site: www.stadshuset.se/stadshuset

fotografiska 2

6. Fotografskia Museum

Another world first, the Fotografskia museum is mouthful for English-speakers but inside its a feast for the eyes. The exhibition is one of the most celebrated photographic displays in the world and is certainly worth a visit for any photography enthusiast.

Hours: Open daily Sunday-Wednesday 9am-9pm, Thursday-Saturday 9am-11pm
Admission: Adults SEK110
Address: Stadsgårdshamnen 22, 11645 Stockholm
Official site: www.fotografiska.eu

 djurgarden sweden

 7. Djurgården

Tourists and locals alike make their way here, particularly in the warmer months. This area is also home to the Skansen open museum and the newly opened ABBA Museum. If you’re visiting Stockholm in the summer, you will easily pass a day here riding through the endless gardens and stopping by numerous cafes and restaurants.

Official site: www.visitdjurgarden.se

 

Stockholm water

8. Stockholm Port

One of the most pleasant ways to enjoy Stockholm is by boat, so be sure to head down to the Port during your visit and travel between islands. Experiencing Stockholm from the water will also allow you to see the city from another point of view – travelling under some of the many bridges and people-watching from the water.

 

ABBA museum

9. ABBA Museum

Having only opened in May of 2013, the ABBA Museum has (understandably) become one of the cities’ main attractions. For any crazed fan, this is a dream come true. However if you even just enjoyed a song or two, its a great insight into the incredible rise of one of the world’s most successful pop groups. The museum also has a strong interactive theme, with the opportunity to even speak to an ABBA member should the phone ring!

Hours: Open daily: Mon-Tue 10-18; Wed – Fri: 10 – 20; Sat – Sun: 10-18
Admission: Adults SEK 195
Address: Djurgårdsvägen 68
Official site: www.abbathemuseum.com

 

Stockholm 4

10. Up & Coming: SOFO Design District

Finally, if you want to get a more local feel for the city, head over to the cities’ most up-and-coming design area; Sofo. Aptly named after its’ NYC inspiration, Sofo is a unique area with some of the cities’ best undiscovered boutiques and concept stores.
