Ride in an external elevator along the outside of the largest spherical building in the world at Skyview. Enjoy panoramic views of Stockholm as the car rises up to 130 m (425 ft) above sea level. Two spherical gondolas, each holding 16 people, operate on parallel tracks, with trips about every ten minutes. Tours sell out, especially on weekends and during the summer, so advance tickets are advised. The Ericsson Globe building houses the national indoor arena of Sweden.

  • Not your usual viewpoint, located a bit outside the city centre, glass capsules take you on top of the arena and offer a splendid view. Quite expensive though.  more »
  • Came in from Solna Station to Globen stop (took around 15 minutes). It is a short 3-4 minute walk from the station. It is right beside a mall. Its a good place to have lunch/tea before going on the sk...  more »
  • The Skyview offers great views of Stockholm, you can see for miles in every direction and there are pictures in the car pointing out where certain landmarks are which is helpful. I'd recommend checkin...  more »

  • 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.
