Spa guide to Stockholm

Publish date: 10 November 2023

Treat your mind and body to a day or weekend at a relaxing spa. Here are some of Stockholm's best.

Swedes are generally considered health-conscious and nature-loving, and Stockholm offers a broad selection of spa and fitness facilities in the city center and the archipelago. Try different types of hot and cold baths, have a refreshing spa treatment, or get a classic Swedish massage.

In central Stockholm, you'll find two of the city's oldest public baths; Centralbadet and Sturebadet. Both feature stylish swimming pool areas and offer various treatments and massages. Several hotels have some form of day spa facility, like Downtown Camper's The Nest and Selma City Spa at Clarion Sign in the blocks closest to T-Centralen, and Nordic Spa & Fitness at Grand Hôtel.

Most people associate spas with serene surroundings, away from the busy goings on of city life. It's no surprise then that most facilities are located in Stockholm's outskirts and beyond. Hotell Havsbaden, for example, is located in idyllic Grisslehamn north of Stockholm. Ellery Beach House, while closer to downtown Stockholm, is located at Lindingö Island's most eastern point. Yasuragi and Skepparholmen are tucked away in a quiet corner of Nacka.
