Kungsholmen: District guide

Kungsholmen is primarily a residential island, where you'll have a great opportunity to mix with the locals. Lots of lively restaurants, bars and cafés are found here, especially along Hantverkargatan and Fleminggatan. Kungsholmen is home to the most prominent building of the Stockholm skyline, the City Hall. If you get the chance, don’t miss climbing the tower to be amazed by the incredible view.

The walk along the tree-lined quay on Norrmälarstrand offers unparalleled views of Södermalm and boats sailing on the lake. If you continue pass the City Hall you can actually stroll around the whole island, along the water. It´s a popular track for locals, and is often either finished or started with a brunch in one of the many cafés in the area.

During summer, there are a couple of nice places to go for a swim on the island, for instance in the big green area of Rålambshovsparken. For a true exotic experience we recommend a swim from the rocks of Fredhällsbadet.
