Museum of Spirits

The Museum of Spirits, situated on the Stockholm island of Djurgården, is full of surprises. Our main focus is on alcoholic beverages: from drinks in the bar to beer on our pier, and through to the entertaining exhibitions about everything from distilling to how tastes and drinks affect us. Not to mention A Spicy Chirstams, our current exhibition that explores the typical Swedish holiday drinks and spices. Even our art exhibit, with works from the legendary Absolut Art Collection, centers around a bottle. Entrance to the museum including a sampler with four Swedish beverages: 270 SEK. Entrance without sampler: 130 SEK.

Take a swim

The waterways of Stockholm are not only beautiful to look at, they are so clean and clear you can take a dip right in the middle of town. There are not a lot of cities in the world that can make that claim! There are several lovely beaches to bask on and cliffs to jump from around the city. Here are a few examples: Smedsuddsbadet This swimming beach at Rålambshov Park Beach is popular with families. Sun-worshipping Stockholmers choose neighboring Rålambshov Park instead. Långholmens bad Narrow beaches and several large rocks offer good swimming for the experienced. The green island of Långholmen is a popular destination for swimmers. Brunnsviksbadet A swimming beach in Frescati Hage at Brunnsviken in the Ekoparken park. There are also charming inlets and beaches near Haga Park for experienced swimmers.

Stockholm Subway Stations

Riding the subway or tunnelbana in Stockholm is truly a unique experience. Since 1950 artists have worked to turn the city’s underground system into a big art installation. Out of the 100 subway stations, over 90 are decorated with sculptures, paintings, mosaics, and cave-like features. A good way to see them is to buy either a 24 hour-ticket or a single journey ticket, which is valid for 75 minutes. Tickets are available through the SL app, ticket machines and ticket booths at the stations, and Pressbyråns. Another tip is to visit them by the color of the lines. The most impressive ones are on the blue line. So, get your camera ready, watch out for the commuters and be prepared to be amazed by the art works displayed on the walls. Here are our TOP10 stations not to be missed while in the Swedish capital: 1. Solna Centrum (Blue line) 2. Stadion (Red line) 3. Tekniska Högskolan (Red line) 4. Kungsträdgården (Blue line) 5.
