Bus 65 can take you from TCentralen to this area. It is lovely and as if made for a long nature walk along the water. A must do when visit Stockholm, a must do when you live in it. Museums, a church, bridges, boats... everything is there for a pleasant afternoon. And it is of course even better in summer...

Peaceful island that occupies central spot in harbour. A nice stroll or bike ride to it or around it. Very interesting to see the boats moored up around this and the linked island.

Really pleasant island, to visit by bike or on foot, with a good view of the royal palace and of Gamla stan.

Skeppsholmen is great for a little stroll, there are some cafes, restaurants, museums and green areas all surrounded by water. The hotel Skeppsholmen is a lovely place to eat.. Or just take a Swedish "fika" (cup of coffee) outside on their terrace.

Beautiful little island. You cannot enter the castle, but it is fun to walk around the outside and get the lay of the land and watch the ferries coming and going.

I was a bit worried about staying on Skeppsholmen as I didn't know how far it was from other places in the city. However, it is very accessible and takes approximately 15 - 20 minutes to walk into the heart of Gamla Stan. Lovely island with gorgeous buildings and home to the museum of modern art. Path along the waterside... More

The walk up to the hill on which the castle sits gives wonderful views over Stockholm, but I would imagine the views from the top of the castle are even better, however it isn't open to the public.

It's small, it's an easy walk, and it's gorgeous. There are attractions - the world class modern art museum, the fantastic meals at Hotel Skeppsholmen - and it's easy to get to and from; you can walk here from downtown or take the #65 or the Hop on Hop Off, then take a ferry to Gamla Stan or Djurgården.

Skeppsholmen is a beautiful little part of Stockholm that is easily accessible by ferry or slightly more difficult to get too by tram. It hold several small museums, most notably the Moderna Museet. If you plan on seeing the museums that are there, it is a great place to walk around and explore. Without any other reason to go, however,... More
