Walks in Stockholm
Click on images to enlarge
A. Stockholm city walk, 5-15 km (3-9 mi)
Then we walk either straight back, over the bridges and Riddarholmen, to Kungsholmen and the Town Hall - or, we make a detour and do the medieval Old City, incl. the Royal Castle and other sights.
B. Coastal walk, 10 km (6mi)
Then we continue our walk by passenger ferry across the water to the suburb and island Lidingö.
We get off at Dalénum, now a new and exclusive housing development - then, and now a part of Swedish industrial history, AGA gas was produced here.
We walk along the shore, on paths - not on roads, to famous Millesgården, the artist home built in 1908 by sculptor Carl Milles, with beutiful views over the water and Stockholm. Your choice if you want to stop and see the museum and artworks - and coffee, of course!
Admission fees 2019: adults: 150 SEK, students: 120 SEK, >18y free
By metro and by foot, allow ~4hrs (2x4 km)
If the House is open for visitors - depending on the day of the week and time of the year - we can have a look at the House from the inside. There is also a shop with antiquities and bric-a-brac.
In the summertime we will have lunch/coffee in the garden, at Sturehof's slotts cafe'. In winter, the cafe is open only on week-ends.
For those interested in pottery, you can visit the pottery by the waterfront.
If it's warm day you can go for a swim in the lake Mälaren - or just dip your feet from the low wooden jetty.
