  • With a central location and outdoor cafés, this park is one of the most popular hangouts and meeting places in Stockholm. No wonder it hosts open-air concerts and events during the summer months. We j...  more »

  • Lovely place by all means! People music kids water cozy environment some time. One of best places to go in lovely Stockholm.
  • Good central park. There are often live events here all year around. When I visited the Japanese cherry trees were in full bloom. At the northern end of the park are 2 double long rows of flowering cherry trees. The city of Stockholm has planted thousands all over the city. The largest group of these trees can be found here. During the day when the cherries are in bloom this part of the park is very crowded. The trees form two avenues on either side of a pond. The edge of the park here is lined with small cafés​ serving a variety of food. All the eateries offer blankets for outside sitting and most have a small number of seats inside too. The rest of the park flows down at the southern end to the Baltic Sea bordered by the Opera House on one side and offices on the other. At the weekend the rest of the park also gets busy. The park is about 8 minutes walk from the central station and is also served by a metro line too.
  • Beautiful park in the center of the city. Looks out to the water, has lots of events in the summer (food fair) and winter (ice skating). Lovely little water fountain in the middle, short but popular stretch of cherry blossom trees, and nice little restaurant/bar/food vendors around.
  • Great place to stop at during your city stroll and relax for a while. The bistro in the park offers nice food for reasonable prices.
  • Lots of benches to sit at, relatively calm for being in the middle of everywhere and lots of events all around the year. Often go here to eat my lunch during summer, always a few spots free, even during lunch hours.
