Revision as of 21:05, 10 May 2011

Kungsholmen is in Stockholm.

Contents

Get in

See

Stadshuset (City hall) at sunset
  • The Stockholm City Hall (Stadshuset), Hantverkargatan 1 (T T-Centralen) [1]. The city hall, where the Nobel Prize Banquet takes place every year, is an imposing brick building in the city centre. Guided tours are held daily, and allow you to see the impressive halls used for the Nobel festivities, the Blue Hall and the Golden Hall. The tower offers a great view of the Old Town and can be climbed (optionally, a lift can take you half the way). To avoid congestion and crowding, you have to get tickets in advance.


Do

  • The largest beach in inner-city Stockholm is the child-friendly Smedsuddsbadet (T Fridhemsplan), next to the Rålambshovsparken Park.
  • Fredhällsbadet (T Kristineberg) is a rocky beach on western Kungsholmen.

Buy

  • Västermalmsgallerian, Sankt Eriksgatan 45 (T Fridhemsplan) [2]. Open M-F 10AM-7PM, Sa 10AM-5PM, Su 11AM-5PM. Opened in 2002, Västermalmsgallerian on Kungsholmen is good-looking but relatively small.
  • Vilse i Garderoben, Hantverkargatan 59, second hand store.

Eat

Cafes

  • Cafe Fix, Sankt Eriksgatan 35. Stockholm's oldest coffee shop. 25SEK for coffee, 5SEK for refill. Nice food.

Budget

Mid-range

  • Mäster Anders, Pipersgatan 1 (T-Rådhuset), +46 8 654 20 01. French and Swedish cuisine with an emphasis on grilled meats. Mains 145-295SEK.
  • Kungsholmen, Norr Mälarstrand, kajplats 464 (T Rådhuset). Maybe on the expensive side of what constitutes mid-range, but this refined food court concept in a beautiful Kungsholmen quay location offers large portions of really tasty food in a variety of styles. Mains 175-260SEK.

Splurge

  • Lux, Primusgatan 116 (Lilla Essingen, bus 1), +46 8 619 01 90 [3]. Open Tu-Fr 11:30AM-2PM, 5-11PM, Sa 5-11PM. In a waterside location on one of Stockholm’s smaller islands, Lux offers both a relaxed atmosphere and some very good modern cooking. Mains 315-345SEK, tasting menu 940SEK.

Drink

  • Dovas, S:t Eriksgatan 53 A. Cheap beer, 30SEK for a 500ml bottle of Norrlands Guld or another local ale. There is a nightclub opposite which most of the young locals seem to disappear into when this place closes.
  • Theodoras, S:t Eriksgatan 53 B. Located about 10 metres further down the street, with the same owner, it is basically a quieter copy of its brother, Dovas.
  • Nivå 22, Fridhemsgatan 17. Very popular place in Stockholm, particularly in winter time as the upper deck is considered outside, and smoking is allowed.
  • Trädgården (The Garden), Fleminggatan 2-4 (T Rådhuset) [4]. A popular summer club, probably owing much to the fact that half of the club (including one dance floor) is situated outdoors, since Swedes love to spend as much of their brief summers as possible outdoors.

Sleep

Budget

  • STF Fridhemsplan, Sankt Eriksgatan 20, [5] (info@fridhemsplan.se). One of the largest and most modern hostels in Stockholm. Doubles from 625 SEK.

Mid-range

  • Connect Hotel City, Ahlströmergatan 41, [6]. The cheapest rooms are very small and windowless. From around 1,000 SEK for a double.
  • Marriott Kungsholmen, Ralambshovsleden 50 (T: Thorildsplan), +46 8 4413100 (fax: +46 8 4413199), [7]. Rooms with internet, aircon, coffee maker, ironing board, fridge and safe. The hotel has a fitness centre and a restaurant with local and international cuisine. Expensive parking at 295 SEK. Around 1,200 SEK for a double.
  • First Hotel Amaranten, Kungsholmsgatan 31 (T: Rådhuset), +46 8 6925280 (, fax: +46 8 6504050), [8]. Rooms with internet. Around 1,300 SEK for a double.
  • Aldoria, [9].
