24 Hours in...Stockholm

Stockholm City Guide
Stockholm was the second part of our honeymoon, and has always been on my travel to-do list, and as I’m married to someone who doesn’t exactly like lying on a beach, it was the perfect city to hang out in. Armed with the Wallpaper Guide (I highly recommend these travel guides) and our trainers, we set off ready to explore, and so this is my next post in my travel series, 24 hours in…Stockholm City Guide
Stay
If you are looking for a chic and cool hotel you should definitely stay at the Miss Clara (read my review on it here). It’s Scandi-minimalist bedrooms will have you getting your instagram on as soon as you enter. The hotel also has a bar and restaurant where all the locals seem to hang out amongst the hotel guests.

Eat
There are so many good places to eat, and as we were only there for a day and a half, our list doesn’t really do the city much justice! For breakfast we ate at the hotel (you would if there was a waffle maker with waffles on tap). For lunch, we went to Phil’s Burgers, a small chain with branches dotted about over the city. It got mentioned a fair few times to me on Twitter when I asked people for recommendations, and I have to say it was pretty darn tasty - the fries were some of the best I’ve had and come with the most tastiest of sauces.

Dinner-wise, on our first night we decided to stay in and order room service. I know what you’re thinking but the pizzeria next to our hotel was booked up and they happened to be connected to the hotel and offered room service, which is a genius idea! The pizza was amazing and I would definitely recommend paying them a visit if you’re in the city.

On our last night, we decided to ‘push the boat out’ and have dinner at Sturehof. A stockholm institution having been around for 120 years. The menu is Swedish/French with a focus on fish and seafood so this is the place to get your herring on. I’m a huge fan of Swedish food, so we had a few plates to share, including their ‘handful of prawns’ which as you can see, was more than a handful.

See
There is SO much to do and see in Stockholm, so make sure you bring comfy shoes! When we first arrived, we headed to Gamla Stan (old town) which was so beautiful to walk around and look at the old buildings and streets, some of which date back to the 13th century. It’s easy to get lost on the island as the maze of streets are so fun to explore. 

Djurgärden island is home to most of the museums in the city. It’s also home to the Botanical Gardens which are worth the walk around. The views were beautiful and even though it rained the whole time we were there, it would be my top pick of places to have a wander around.

If you’re into going for some drinks I recommend starting with cocktails at The Nobis Hotel. It's a little swanky, but it does a great Espresso Martini and is brilliant for people watching.
