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

We stayed at the Hotel Skeppsholmen, so we found ourselves on the island quite a bit. I have a feeling if we'd stayed elsewhere, though, we might not have visited. There were a few other sites on the island - the little Kastellet (which I walked around - quaint); the Modern Art Museum (didn't visit) and a few other things.... More

I had considered staying on Skeppsholmen, since everyone who reviewed the hotel here said the walk was insignificant. I found the location to be out of the way. It is a lovely island, but quite remote from the rest of the Stockholm and the Hop-on-hop-off boat is not be be counted on as they are few and far between. If... More

Why is this attraction ranked so high? We took a stroll in Skeppsholmen and found it incredibly boring and a waste of time. There was not much to do, except for a few small museums. Unless you're visiting the museums, don't bother coming here. The Kastellet is best viewed from the water with a boat tour.
