Stockholm Favourites, part 1

1 Comment

Hej allihopa!

During my time in Stockholm I’ve been around the city quite a lot and discovered some really awesome places here. Now I thought I’d share some of my favourite spots with you lovely readers. Here we go!

For lunch

K25 (Hötorget)

K25 located on Kungsgatan could be described as an upscale food court. The idea is to offer quality food in a nice atmosphere – but fast. They have eleven restaurants serving everything from Italian and American till Asian food. K25 is an especially good pick for a group with different tastes – everyone can just order from the restaurant they prefer and still enjoy the meal together.

Falafelbaren (Mariatorget)

I’m a big fan of falafel and this place on Hornsgatan serves really good one. Everything on the menu is vegetarian and the prices are relatively cheap. The place is quite tiny though so be prepared that it can get crowded sometimes!

For the best view

Katarinahissen (Slussen)

Katarinahissen, or the Katarina Elevator, is a passenger lift on the north-side of Södermalm. The lift itself has been out of service since 2010 but you can still access the lift’s balcony which offers great views over the city. To reach the place, head to Mosebacke torg or walk up the stairs from Slussen.

For shopping

Beyond Retro (Zinkensdamm, Medborgarplatsen, Hötorget)

Stockholm of course has all the biggest chain stores but for something more unique I’d recommend heading to Beyond Retro. They are a British vintage retailer and Sweden is the only country to have their shop outside of UK.  You can make some really good finds here and at least I could spend hours just flicking through the racks. There are three shops in Stockholm: on Brännkyrkagatan near Zinkensdamm, on Åsögatan in the SoFo area and on Drottningsgatan in the city centre.

Let’s continue the list next week with more focus on night life.

Until then,
