Stockholm in 72 hours
If you're staying over the weekend or you have several days to spend in Stockholm, you should take the opportunity to spend half a day on a trip to Millesgården or Drottningholm Palace, or head out into Stockholm’s amazing archipelago.
Millesgården is the artist's home of artist Carl Milles with his beautiful well-known works set on the terraces and in fountains.
Drottningholm Palace is Sweden's best preserved royal palace constructed in the seventeenth century, the permanent residence of the royal family and one of Stockholm's three World Heritage Sites. Together with the exotic pleasure palace the Chinese Pavilion, the palace theater and the grand palace park, Drottningholm constitutes a unique whole. The boats from the turn of the last century are a nice way to get to Drottningholm. The boat trip along Lake Mälaren takes an hour. Why not combine the boat trip with lunch on board?
As wonderful as Stockholm is, many people miss its most unique feature – the magnificent archipelago. If you have time you should take the opportunity to get out to the Stockholm Archipelago with its 30,000 islands and magnificent unique natural environment. Make a half-day or day trip. Half an hour by boat is sufficient to reach Fjäderholmarna, the closest island.
Welcome to Stockholm – the Capital of Scandinavia!
