    Hi everyone!

    I’m in Stockholm this weekend and looking for any restaurant/bar/activity recommendations you may have! Just going for the weekend so don’t have a huge amount of time.

    I would be unfriended by several friends if I didn’t suggest the ABBA museum!

    That goes without saying! I’ll probably also see the Vasa and the usual touristy things. But looking for those hidden gems you don’t find in guide books or online!

    Shame it’s just the weekend, but if you had more time, I’d suggest a boat trip to one of the islands in the archipelago, especially in the summer. I went to Gällnö recently and it was lovely.

    In Stockholm itself, I liked cinnamon buns at Vette-Katten and open sandwiches at Skeppsbro Bakery. You should absolutely try one of the smorgasbord restaurants, but not at the Grand. We went there, the views were stunning, but the food was nothing special. Out of restaurants, I liked Bistro Bestick, Frantzen and Nomad (for atmosphere and simple food).

    You should also try Pontus in the Air (Amex Plat&Centurion concept) at Arlanda.

    We also went one morning to a residential area in Kungsholmen and had coffee&buns with the locals at Wilmer Kaffesbar.

    This museum is in central Stockholm and has a lovely bar & restaurant in the museum courtyard in the summer. A hidden gem.

    Sturehof restaurant is also very good. Always busy so need to book.

    The whole point of asking here is so I can get actual recommendations from people! I’m perfectly capable of googling ‘stockholm recommendations’ myself but I’m trying to find those hidden gems you don’t normally find!

    Thanks to everyone who has actually provided some actual suggestions 😉
