      Large group of people visiting a festival

      Stockholm Jul 4, 2016 at 11:02 AM

      There is maybe 10 or even 20 people of us visiting Stockholm beer festival at begining of October. It seems to take place at place called Nacka strand. The closest hotel seems to be Park in Radisson, but many of us would like to stay cheap. Most people would like us to stay together anyway. How can I make sure we wont stay in very hard place to get. Of course Gamla stan would be nice, or nearby, but it wont get any cheaper at there. I might contact hotel and ask for group pricesm if I would just know good location. Not too hard to get to festival.

    • Vegetarian dishes in Swedish cuisine?

      Sweden Jun 16, 2016 at 5:21 AM

      Hello, I'm a vegetarian, who from time to time eats fish as well, and my question is about the vegetarian dishes in the Swedish cuisine. Are there any?

       

      Some years ago I was in Spain, and - the trip was great, but - it was a pain to find any restaurants with vegetarian dishes. It was in Spain that I started eating fish, to be able to get enough nutrients. Back then I said, that I won't ever again go on a trip without knowing what I will able to eat. I know that Sweden has a lot of fish related dishes, I even want to try one or two (like their local Fish&Chips - goo.gl/nCrsJz), but I don't want to make fish the basic ingredient for my meals.

      What chances do I have to get a proper vegetarian meal from time to time in (central) Sweden (Dalarna region - https://goo.gl/VNO6eZ)?

    • Road trip in Sweden?

      Sweden Jun 2, 2016 at 11:58 AM

      Hey,

      I'm thinking about getting to Sweden for some days in the near future, but my goal is to organize a roadtrip where the main focus is on "meeting" some traditional Swedish stuff (like the professions in this article story.visitsweden.com/meet-t..., which was the starting point of this whole journey-idea). Usually I'm not curious about the stuff that is shown to the tourists. (I consider myself more a traveler than a tourist - yeah, I'm one of those people.) What I really would like is to get a glimpse into the everyday life of some more traditional regions, to get a feel of the real Sweden.

      Is here anyone who could point me in the right directions? :)

      Traveling onwards

      Stockholm May 23, 2016 at 3:18 PM

      Ed and I plan on visiting Stockholm this summer and will be continuing on to Copenhagen and then Amsterdam.
      I'm looking and getting quite confused about booking rail vs flights.

      I've looked at booking my flights between Tallinn and Stockholm on SAS.
      I've never flown them before - some input on them would be helpful. Good? Bad? I take it they're a basic no frills carrier such as our Easy Jet or Jet Blue.
      Pricing was cheap at around $65.00/pp including 1 checked in bag and 1 small carry on.

      I've figured out that flight time between Stockholm and Copenhagen is relatively cheap and much quicker on paper.
      By the time you figure in arrival pre-check in time, security, etc., figures out to be about the same as rail.
      I'm getting a price of $67.00 one way between the two points on June 20th on Scandinavian Rail with a train travel duration of 04hr 21mins...does this sound correct?
      Am I looking in the right place? best website for booking direct? I know to stay away from RailEurope.com.
      Same applies for travel between Copenhagen and Amsterdam on June 22nd.

      Finally, as I will be taking train between Sweden & Denmark then on to the Netherlands, on to Belgium and finally to France, would an Eurorail pass be more economical and to my benefit?

      Thanks in advance,
      Homer (and Ed)

      Hi there,

      We're planning a trip to London from Malmo, by train and we're just wondering if, in light of recent border checks being re-introduced, there will be any checks until Brussels ?

      Would it be the same case by car as well ?

      From what I'm reading checks have only been introduced when travelling back to Sweden. Is that correct ?

      Thanks.

    • Additional Transportation?

      Hönö Apr 19, 2016 at 1:54 PM

      Good Evening. I am from the US and plan on going to the island in the Summer for an event. I am traveling alone and will not have a car. I believe from Gothenberg Central I would take a bus to get to Lilla Varholmen. From there I will take a ferry. What I am trying to figure out - is when I get to Lilla Varholmen is this right where the ferry is? Also can I just board the ferry without a car? Also once I get to Hono island are there taxis?
      Thank you for your help. I am a solo traveler for this event so any help would be helpful. Thank you!

      Denmark and Sweden holiday

      Sweden Feb 16, 2016 at 11:57 AM

      Hi everybody,
      I'm currently planning our holiday for Sweden and Denmark and have a few questions. Our idea is to travel in mid-May as Germany has some rather long Pentecost holidays this year (starting 14 May, returning 29 May). We will probably fly into Copenhagen (unless Malmö or Gothenburg are better options) and will then stay there for 3 days before going on to see some friends in Hörby in Sweden.
      We thought about renting a car, but does that make sense at all given the traffic and the strict controls between Denmark and Sweden (due to the refugee crisis)? Would travelling around Hörby be possible without a car? I'm sure our friends could take us around for a day, but we don't want to be too much of a nuisance to them. Also, is it easy / possible to take a rental car from Denmark to Sweden and vice versa?
      That said, we thought about going down to Ystad and taking the ferry to Bornholm for a day - does that make any sense or is that way too much for one day? Our guidebook seems to be of the opinion that you could easily spend a full holiday on Bornholm.
      Another idea was to go camping at least a few times - are the majority of campgrounds open in mid-May? My impression from the guidebook was that everything starts rather late, at least in Sweden.
      Last, but not least, which daytrips or jaunts would you recommend for a few days in the area of Hörby/Lund? Any off-the-beaten path sights to visit (landscape, cute villages, old towns)? How far away should we venture - is driving on Swedish roads fast or do you need to plan quite a while to get from A to B?
      I'll post this question with an addition in the Denmark forum as well as I'd be grateful for any tips about that as well.
      Thanks in advance,
      Golo

      Stockholm to Helsinki Ferry

      Stockholm Feb 6, 2016 at 11:37 PM

      We are an active couple in our fifties so we like the shows and some dancing but wouldn't describe ourselves as 'party people'. We would like a niceish cabin without going over the top and a nice dinner setting with good food (obviously!) We have no objection to children but would probably like to dine in a more adult setting.
      I have done so much research on the two ferries that do this overnight trip. I think I'm over doing it. In the end i like the Silja Symphony boat better with its promenade but I like the dinner option better on the Viking cruise! :/
      What I like about the dinner option on Viking is the Food Garden option with a window view. This looks a bit more up market with round tables and table cloths. Also I like the idea of buffet for starters and dessert and ala carte for mains. The fact drinks are not included is fine. We are not big drinkers so are happy to purchase a couple of wines.
      The cabin selections on the Viking are more limited on the upper end. We don't want a suite but like a deluxe type room with sea view. On the Viking the options are the suite which is very expensive and next is the LXB Seaside Premium 12 square metres. Which would be ok.
      On the Silja the Deluxe seaside is 14sq and looks a bit more roomy and better appointed. There are limited photos.
      Don't even get me started on what dining time to choose! ha ha Some say early and be on deck for sunset and that best island views are 3 hours into cruise. I thought exiting the harbour would be good to see too. A 5 o'clock seating for dinner is as soon as you arrive and seems too rushed for us.
      I am presuming you can't request a room mid ship (in case of bad weather as I'm not a great sailor) or any room for that matter. Seems like that is pot luck. Unlike cruise ships where they charge more for same cabins midship and on preferred quiet floors.
      So any help/advice/opinion is very much welcomed.
