Skeppsholmen, Stockholm
(4.5/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Though it was traditionally valued solely for its strategic location, Skeppsholmen today showcases a number of art museums and cultural events. Situated at the Baltic Sea entrance to Stockholm, the site reveals a number of older buildings from the island's days as a military center. Military presence on the island is scarce now, and the area is much more attractive to tourists for its art scene and green spaces. Here you can visit the Museum of Modern Art, Swedish Museum of Architecture, East-Asian Museum, and Teater Galeasen. Experience the island by going for a stroll, having a picnic, taking in views of the city's old town, or attending the popular Stockholm Jazz Festival. Plan to see Skeppsholmen and other attractions that appeal to you using our Stockholm trip itinerary builder.

  • For a walk in the quiet, in front of the old town (ideal for photography) or the amusement park, cultural with the Museum of modern art, maritime with many boats docked, very nice for these bars at the edge of the water and the Sunday brunch at the excellent hotel Skeppsholmen

  • We went for a walk to the Skeppsholmen and Fort Holmen. And the two island which can be reached only via the small bridge, is still very natural. It has, several buildings on the island, but you can take a leisurely stroll on the banks of Skeppsholmen and enjoy the nature. On the other side of the sea, you can see then again other districts (Södermalm, Gamla Stan, Djurgården, etc). Also, there are many beautiful boats for the marvel at. The ideal place for a Saturday stroll in the autumn.
