The LGBT guide to Stockholm

Narrow streets meet open minds. Gay and lesbian life in Stockholm is like the city itself: easily accessible, hugely fun, highly varied and warm and welcoming.


Fjäderholmarna springs to life during the warm summer months. The small Island, only a 20-minute boat trip from downtown Stockholm, is a popular destination for people who want a sample taste of the Stockholm Archipelago, but don’t have the time to explore further out. Visit one of the excellent restaurants, take a peek into one of the artisan studios and shops or simply take a swim in Mälaren from the cliffs at Fjäderholmarnas bad.

Boats to Fjäderholmarna depart from Slussen and Nybroplan, and the season last from the 29th of April to the 3rd of September.
