Skeppsholmen, Stockholm

4.6
#4 of 14 in Nature in Stockholm
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.

  • Great small and quiet island where we can go for a walk or just to breed and feel the nature. You can walk over the bridge or come by ferry. It's just a cool place to wander around. There is an informal boat museum along the wharf that is really interesting and completely free. Even if you are not interested boats, the small descriptions of the how each one has been restored and their history as a working or pleasure boat will grip you.
  • Quiet a lovely place in the heart of old city Stockholm!!
  • We enjoyed very much staying here. Beautiful place!
