  • As the Moderna Museet is free admission to the general exhibits, it makes it great afternoon stop after a busy day. The exhibits were intriguing and thought provoking. Unfortunately our visit occurred while the exterior was under construction, but there are some interesting sculpture gardens worth visiting as well that are located outside the museum.
  • I enjoy modern art but this one was out of my understanding. Spent too much time wandering around trying to find something that would meet my expectation. At least I was lucky with good weather and had an amazing view outside the cafeteria.
  • Brilliant art and also brilliant brunch buffet! If you're visiting Stockholm and on a budget I'd highly recommend the weekend buffet brunch. 225SEK for hot and cold options, plus dessert (you can go back for more- but the plates are big!). The view is lovely and really relaxed atmosphere. Not pretentious!
  • Used to really like spending the day studying in the cafe here; saving up all of my lunch budget for the week to buy a big lunch and coffee and study in an inspirational location. Now they've removed the power points and it's impossible. I'll probably never eat there again.
  • Great art gallery. I was transfixed by some of the 20 century classics on display. Great shop too. Went free on Friday evening (6-8pm free entry on Fridays).

Where to stay in Stockholm

Glitzy Stockholm provides an abundance of high-end four-star hotels and international chains that come with a reputation of being pricey and feature a distinguished Scandinavian design. You can save yourself a little money by searching out the discounts these hotels often offer. If you're looking for something more affordable, consider the medium-priced hotels north of the Old Town. The least-expensive options lie near Central Station. Since offerings tend to be more affordable the farther you go from the city center, you'll serve yourself well to find a spot near public transport.
