From gazing at art to dining on a plant-based brunch, there's no shortage of places to go and things to do around Stockholm. Here are six of our favorite ways to share the time together.
November 7, 2019
Take in the sights at Artipelag. For the art connoisseur, head to Artipelag for a day of exhibitions, a walking trail, and a delicious lunch buffet. Currently, on display are the Italian artist and designer Piero Fornasetti's Inside Out Outside In and Jan Håfström’s The White Bus. Once you've finished exploring the museum, grab a bite at Artipelag Restaurant and take in the gorgeous views from the top of Baggensfjärden. Follow your meal with a walk along the Eco Trail, and be sure to check out the outdoor Sculpture in Nature exhibit!
