One of the best ways to experience Stockholm is to walk it. You could easily set out in a different direction every day for an entire week to explore something new and exciting in the Swedish capital. Gamla Stan deserves a full day of exploring on foot, as does Djurgarden, by way of Strandvagen, where everyone who’s anyone can be seen walking on a sunny Stockholm day.
Spend an afternoon strolling down the pedestrian shopping street, Drottninggatan, or get up early one morning and set a course from sophisticated Stureplan to Bohemian Sodermalm.
Another good way to explore Stockholm is by bicycle. Stockholm is safe for cyclists, and you’ll cover more ground pedaling than you would walking.
