Idyllic archipelago town with many well-preserved wooden houses from the turn of the last century painted in the archipelago’s typical delicate pastel tones. Vaxholm has numerous charming restaurants, cafés, and shops. Waxholm Hotel, with its great views of the fortress and harbor, is a classic choice for lunch or dinner, or, why not a Christmas Buffet. Vaxholm is easily accessible year round, by Waxholmsbolagets boat traffic or by bus. If you take the bus, the trip is covered by Stockholm's public transport service.
