  • We have booked the SkyView 3 months ago! Well yesterday, on my birthday, we were finally in Stockholm and were looking forward to the ride with SkyView. However on arrival is only a small paper note in English at the reception door that "SkyView IS closed due to maintenance". No eMail or information previously, nothing! But has conceded the money - and now we can see how we get it back. A nerve without peers! Not only the expenses, tickets to the SkyView and the loss of time. Here the customer with feet is performed. This is the very last!

  • We didn't book for this beforehand but once we got there were advised of a short wait - we were lucky as it could have been a lot longer. We were advised the whole experience would last 30 minutes, bu...  more »
  • Being outside the city the viw is not to be missed. If you then add a gloomy day then you can safely choose to do something else. Having 2 young daughters and the Stockholm pass which gives free access, I decided to check it out. The neighborhood is definitely nice architectural point of view, with the ice stadium and the one covered in football. Book because it is a few places you may lose hours and around there is only one huge shopping center.

  • Great views! Wait for a clear day but be warned that the sun can heat up the clear globe somewhat. We ended up waiting longer for free spaces than the length of the ride itself so you can save time if you pre-book a desired time slot.
  • The view is great but the ride is not so exiting and it's expensive. I prefer the Stadshuset tower to this.
  • We walke through the hole city to be there and they tell us we have to wait 4h because people has reservate... so we can' t go in -_-
  • While it seems like a great idea the Skyview is not as impressive as you'd expect. Firstly its right out of Stockholm in a more industrial/office style area. To make matters worse the set it up so you look away from Stockholm city center for the entire journey up and down. It was fun but for the price they charge I don't think its worth it you can get much better views of the city for free from the Monteliusvagen.
  • Super duper exciting. The world's biggest spherical building for skyview.
