This is Stockholm
Modernity meets tranquility. Trend-setting restaurants and vibrant nightclubs next to idyllic archipelago. Welcome to a city where it is easy to breathe – and to feel your pulse.
Humlegården is a green oasis a stone’s throw from nightclub mecca Stureplan, in the middle of the exclusive Östermalm district.
Here you can see businessmen in suits eating brownbag lunches on the grass when it’s warm and sunny, but also lots of young families and dog owners. In the beginning the park was a royal garden established by Johan III, who grew fruit, spices and hops. “Humlan” has been a public park and a popular spot to relax since 1869. The park includes a large playground area, a skateboard ramp, Spybars summer club and Floras Kulle, a summer café. A statue of the flower king Carl Linnaeus stands in the middle of the park, and the National Library of Sweden is right next to Stureplan.
