Top Places To Visit

We set out for City Hall which can be reached from metro station Rådhuset on blue line towards Akalla/Hjulsta. You have to walk approx. 500 meters to Hantverkargatan 1 to reach City Hall. According to their website “City Hall of Stockholm is one of Sweden’s most fascinating and impressive buildings! You can visit the City Hall on a guided tour all year round. Since the venues can only be visited together with a guide, there are no general opening hours.” We reached City Hall just before one of the guided tours began. So were taken around the inside of the city hall with a lot of information about the building, its heritage, architect etc. It was truly amazing experience to be standing at the ‘blue hall’ where Nobel banquets are held every year. Then walk through the chambers where city council meets or the ‘golden hall’ which is made of gold. Well, some pictures again… After breath taking views outside the City Hall and other overwhelming information it was time to move towards our next destination, Drottningholm Palace.

We took blue line towards Akalla/Hjulsta and alighted at Fridhemsplan. Then took green line towards Åkeshov/Hässelby Strand and alighted at Brommaplan. From Brommaplan you can take bus 176 towards Stenhamra or bus 177 towards Ekerö, Skärvik and alight at Drottningholm. As per the official website “The Drottningholm Palace is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. It is the most well-preserved royal castle built in the 1600s in Sweden and at the same time is representative of all European architecture for the period.” When we reached the visitor center we were told that we had missed the guided tour and the next tour was scheduled about 2 hours later. Since we had the Stockholm card we could go around the palace and its garden. The royal garden is called Chinese pavilion which is open during summers but we could go around it. In summer and autumn, place seemed to be a very nice spot for day long excursion with loved ones. The place was so beautiful that eyes and heart wanted to soak it for some more time but the brain pushed us into a bus that was leaving. At Brommaplan we spotted a McDonalds’ and decided to have an American lunch. After lunch we took the green line towards Skarpnäck/Farsta strand/Hagsätra and alighted at T-Centralen to go to our next destination Djurgården.

Gripsholm Castle is Sweden's one of the most finest historical monument which was built by King Gustav Vasa in 1537 and later extended by Gustav III. Its not very much located in Stockholm, infact it is approximately 70 Kms away from the city. The best part of this castle is that, it is not in the middle of the crowded city, and you get to explore the actual countryside Sweden. Here are few easy steps to follow in order to reach Gripsholm Castle: 1. Catch a 10:35 AM train from Stockholm Central, reach Laggesta Station at 11:20 AM 2. catch a bus going to Mariefred Village at 11: 41 AM and 3. within next 15 minutes get down at the Mariefred Village Bus Station. You can easily see the Castle Top towards your right hand side. Start walking on the grass following the criss cross lane. Walk for 5 minutes, cross the railway track and here you are (Check out the first picture). You will find a magnificent Castle standing right in front of you.
