Hi, may I get the bus route no.538 from Marsta Station to Arland Airport ? Is easy to find the bus stop?
Need advice on easy-going sightseeing June 16 – 23 – that is, without much going actually :), have a bit of a problem walking long distances.
Staying in Regeringsgatan, close to Hötorget. I normally take SL access card for the whole period, it covers most transport means.
So far, I am planning
• Drottningholm by boat (at least one way, does it make sense to return by bus+train ?)
• Tram 7 to Skansen the day before Midsommar
• Cruise to Haga (it’s the shortest cruise), maybe an archipelago cruise with lunch another day?
• How do I get to a public beach, if there is any?
I got this as nearest – is it really fit for swimming? Any place to change, WC etc?
Is it already warm enough to bathe? Surely some compatriots are famous for walrus-bathing, but I do not go to such extremes :)
Looked up Drottningholm Palace and found out this:
Closed 4–11 June, due to the Royal wedding.
Take a note if you are heading there
By the way, since I am planning a trip later in June, has anyone tried the boat + entrance fare?
Then, I didn't really get what they mean by "Departs from: Stadshusbron"?
Does one exactly jump the bridge?!
Hi, can anyone tell me from Central Station if I do not take the Arlanda Express, taxi, and Flybussarana? Have any other transport....to Arlanda Airport..?

Hi all, I have a trip coming up in April where I will be traveling from the U.S. to Copenhagen (2 days) to the Norway in a Nutshell Tour then to Stockholm. I will have 4 days and 3 nights in Stockholm and think it's TOO much. Do you have any suggestions for day trips from Stockholm or things to do along the way?
Cruise ship is coming into Nynashamn in August. What I'm looking for is public transport from the docks into Stockholm. I think it's about an hour and there are excursions that do a lot or a little. Not sure which way I will go with it but would like to know if I have the option of doing it on my own or if I need the excursion just to get to town. The cost for a ride each way via Holland America is about60 US. Also like to know what I don't want to miss in Stockholm. Thanks in advance for the guidance!
I am looking for a place to buy dolls dressed in the native costume of Smaland province. Any suggestions?
Any creative ideas what one can do on a winter Sunday day in Stockholm? The problem is it’s Sunday January 06. Most everything is closed on Sunday in Stockholm, as far as I could see on my previous visits, and what isn’t will certainly be on Epiphany day. Another problem is that I have already been to most tourist attractions like Royal Palace, City Hall, Skansen, the faraway museum site next to Kaknes tower and even the wooden houses in Sodermalm. What’s even worse, I am not particularly keen on spending a fortune on anything. I was contemplating on Centralbadet – I like their interior, and I like swimming; but I don’t like baths, and not the entrance fee either. And by the way, where does one eat on Sunday? Is café Petite France still in life? Their site definitely isn’t.
Still in doubt about the transport means from Arlanda to Stockholm. The train doesn't seem an option - about 40 minutes, and quite a headache about the tickets. I've used Flygbussarna 2 - 3 years ago. It took us over an hour to get to the Cityterminalen (on the site - about 40 minutes, though) Anyone has any experience with Swebuss? The started the line a couple of months ago, I heard.
I'am flying next week to Sweden for the new years anniversary and i would like to make some new friends before i get there , i tied to search for a social websites but what i found was helpless so i wonder if there is anyone who knows any useful way to make friends in Stockholm . thank you
its my first time traveling to Europe i would like to spend the new year's anniversary in Stockholm and i got the Schengen Visa from the Maltese embassy my question is, can i travel directly to Sweden without entering Malta ? cause some people told me if i don't enter Malta they may not allow me to enter Sweden ???
I usually buy a weekly card, but not sure if it makes sense for 5 days. Does anyone know if a single ticket actually exists these days?
Does it make sense to go to Drottningholm in winter? It's open December 31 - January 6. I hope everything is functioning? Especially cafe, because I've got to feed something to my system every three hours.
Read another thread and on a whim booked Un ballo in maschera in Kunliga Operan night January 4. Got a couple of questions: 1) Is it allowed to come with a backpack? It’s really small and light, Travel Blue make, it’s my ‘lady’s bag’. 2) Is it OK to come in jeans? There is no way to wear a skirt in winter. 3) There is a wardrobe for 30 SEK – does one bring coins? Are there normally long queues? Can one leave winter boots there, too – in a plastic bag? 4) There must a WC somewhere? Apparently paid extra – does one bring any small change? 5) Is it allowed to take pictures during the intervals? 6) How early should one come before the performance to have time for everything? 7) I bought the ticket via Internet, do I need to bring and ID with me? Many thanks
Hi, I will be in Stockholm January 03 – 07, booked in Comfort hotel in Kungsbrun 1. The last time I was in Stockholm I took a bus (I guess 353) to Marsta, then changed to the train. That was cheap but VERY long. I understand SL introduce now a direct train from the Central Station to Arlanda since December 7? I am trying to figure out the total cost: SL Access card for 7 days = 300 SEK (I understand it will bring me to Arlanda, and Drottninghom, too? No zones?) That’s better than SL Access for 3 days = 230 SEK + Flygbuss 200 SEK = 430 SEK, I guess But they told me something about a ‘tax’ from the airport to the train – anyone knows what that means? Because there’s no SL card for 5 days, so I’ll have 7 days = 300 SEK + passage 60 x 2 = 420 SEK (the same!) One the one hand, the train is faster, while a Flygbuss may sit in the traffic. On the other hand, I spent about an hour last time in the airport trying to locate a ‘pressbyra’ to fill my Access card, with luggage and winter coat in hand! Would appreciate good advice!
Me and a small group of English friends are coming over to stockholm on the 22nd of November for the Swedish house mafia gig at the friends arena, we are staying in Stockholm on the 23rd for a evening/night out in the city, we are all into alot of dance music and was wondering what are some of the more dance music orientated clubs in Stockholm, i have read alot about strict guidelines to age, dresscode ect , I am 21, some of friends are 22, 24 , does that really restrict which clubs are available ? Any help would be appreciated!
My new wife and I will be spending the above 5 nights as part of our honeymoon in Stockholm this New Year. As most guides advise to avoid Stockholm at this time of year due to the cold, we have some questions that a local may be able to answer. 1) Is 5 days too long to spend in Stockholm, especially at this time of year? 2) Outside of Stockholm, what place in Sweden would be worth visiting for a day at this time of year? Is there any place outside Stockholm with a great Christmas market or historic site? 3) We know Pucinni's La bohème and Verdi' Un Ballo in Maschera are on at this time, what other music highlights would there be at this time of year? 4) Where would be the best place in Stockholm to celebrate the New Year? (We're staying in the Sheraton) 5) Is there any "off the beaten track" place you'd suggest visiting, or thing you'd suggest doing, while we're in Stockholm? 6) We love walks and history. Is there any place that would be great in this respect - palaces, castles, gardens, etc - or would it be too cold? Tack så mycket/Thanks a million
Hi, I'll be in Stockholm 01.01-07.01.2013 and I'll celebrate my birthday there. Who knows a nice restaurant with local dishes and resonable prices? May be not in the center or somewhere not far? May be in Upsala, because we plan to visit Upsala also. Thanks in advance.
Hi, Need advice about Midsommar week June 2013 I am planning to book the flights in advance, while they are relatively inexpensive. Does it make sense to stay for Sunday, and leave on Monday, are there any festivities worth seeing? The point is Monday is a working day, and they want me to be in the office…
I have recently booked a hotel room on Sunday, 12.08.2012 through www.hostelbookers.com, to stay with Belman Vandrarhem for two days in Stockholm, check-in date being 17.08.2012. The confirmation clearly stated that I can refund 48 hours before my arrival. I emailed someone in Belman to ask about the reception hours and he replied me almost immediately. Something came up and I need to delay my trip to Sweden. I tried to cancel this booking by sending them an e-mail on Monday, 13.08.2012. I received no replies. I sent a twitter message to Hostelbookers to ask if this is the right approach to cancel your bookings, and no replies. Sent another two or three, still no replies. In an act of desperation, I rang Stockholm from London on Tuesday, 14.08.2012, only to find out the guy who answered the phone was very bad in English and a really slow person who speaks in a voice that you almost can't hear. If you wanna know what I'm referring to, it's like talking to Consuela from Family guy. I'm running out of time to cancel the booking because the deadline is on the 15.08.12 which is today. I asked my friend who is Swedish to ring the hostel and speak to him in Swedish to cancel the booking. My friend came back to me saying that the guy was being really slow and he said he was checking if he could cancel it. The next morning at 10am (London time), 15.08.12, I rang the hostel again from London. I spoke to the same guy, with his same slow English and slow Consuela voice, spent 6 minutes trying to give him a simple series of number like 54545---only to have him saying that I am late and that the deadline was midnight 00:00!!!!!!! Of course I wasn't happy and I told him we have rang twice and I have sent an e-mail to cancel blablabla. He gave me an attitude and hang up on me saying he's too busy. The thing is this hostel i.e. Belman Vandrarhem is a small hostel in a very shady area of Stockholm. I'm wondering if there is anything I could do to get my money back from him. I have all the evidences of the previous communications and even the time. The only thing I'm missing is the name of the employee. However, my Swedish friend assured me that he is not the employee, but the owner of this annoying Consuela hostel. Can anyone advise me how to go about this? E-mails is out of the questions and so are phones (he starts rejecting my calls) and he totally ignores my e-mail. I have spammed him about 6-7 times expressing my dissapointment because I had to pay for his incompetencies. I am thinking of going there when I'm in Stockholm next week and talk to him directly. Do you think this can be dangerous since I'm a small Asian female and my Swedish friend (male) told me this area of Stockholm is shady? Also, if he is the owner of that annoying hostel then how can you file a complaint against a manager? Thank you so much in advance.
Help can u please tell us the best way to travel from Stockholm to Helsingbrog, what is the best travel arrangements.. thank you
I have read some horror stories about taxi rates from the airport to the city. Are there any "legitimate" taxi companies which service the airport, and of so, approximately what should the rate be to the Grand Hotel? Do taxis use meters or is it a negotiated rate? Should one reserve a taxi ahead of time, or are there plenty of taxis at the terminal? I'm arriving there on August 15. Carl
