SkyView, Stockholm

2.9
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.

  • Great attraction. Offers great views of the city. Takes about 2 minutes to ride to the top of the sphere and then you stay there for a bit and then back down. Total time roughly 20 minutes.  more »
  • We all did go up this contraption to have a view of Stockholm town from the top. It was an experience no doubt but the view was not that great for the price we paid. But all world tours have such attr...  more »
  • This is not very far of the city centre and you can get there easily with metro. Go there with friends or your family. I'm sure everyone will love the view, even those who are afarid of hights.  more »

  • Amazing view, but this ride to enjoy the view is quite short and expensive. On a sunny day this glass box gets a little hot. Also experienced 1.5 hr waiting. Good is that the service is good, the glass box is not overcrowded and nice video introduction is very informative.
  • Fun experience with nice views over the city. The introduction movie gives a good representation about what happend there with the four stadiums in one place!
  • You cant see as much as expected, like the Canals/ Water and point out the individual highlights, but it is definitely nice up there and you get some good Pictures.
  • There's nothing mind blowing for the price - the views from the top can be seen from a variety of other (free) places around the city. An intro video with trivia about the arenas was interesting and well made but the ride itself was short and unmemorable - would be better with an augmented reality glass instead of regular glass so you could tap the location you're looking at and get more info about it. As it is, it was just a high view that's easily beaten by other views around Stockholm. One good thing is that capacity is limited so no fear of it being crowded in the gondola - it's easy to talk and move around and see everything.
  • Good view, good place for families and ppl does not look for crazy stuff
