Apartments in Sweden

Spacious apartments in the capital city

In Stockholm there are modernly equipped holiday apartments with TV and free WLAN, which are the ideal starting point for an extensive sightseeing programme. A apartment in the old town is only a few hundred metres away from the royal castle and the shopping street Drottninggatan. Anyone who appreciates the exclusive atmosphere of a noble district can book a holiday apartment in the Östermalm district. Close to a holiday apartment in Gärdet, holidaymakers can leave the city atmosphere in the surrounding parks behind them for some time.

Holiday in the idyll of southern Sweden

If you want to experience the untouched nature of Sweden and the traditional lifestyle of its inhabitants, you can book a vacation rental in Småland. In the nostalgic country house style of the region, a vacation rental near Västervik or Hylte offers many possibilities for sporting activities due to its proximity to the water. A garden surrounded by meadows and woods with terrace, garden furniture and barbecue ensures that individual travellers can fully enjoy the unspoilt nature of the region.

Holidays on the picturesque coast

Holidaymakers who want to combine a stay in nature with sightseeing in the city will feel at home in a vacation rental in the Gothenburg archipelago. Spacious modern accommodation is suitable for larger groups, a nostalgic small cottage with garden is ideal for families and couples. A vacation rental in Torsland or Küngalv is only a few hundred metres from the rocky coast. The bright interior design and a wooden terrace with sea view exude typical Swedish cosiness.

Holidays in Sweden

Location and orientation

Scandinavian country with important cities

Sweden is mainly located on the Scandinavian peninsula between the North Sea and the Baltic Sea and borders Norway, Finland and Denmark. In addition to the mainland, the national territory includes thousands of islands, including Gotland and Öland. Of the approximately 9.9 million inhabitants, almost 912,000 live in the metropolis of Stockholm, about 573,000 in the second largest city, Gothenburg, an important economic centre.

Protected landscapes with varied nature

The country is topographically divided into southern and central Sweden, also known as Götaland and Svealand, and northern Sweden or Norrland. While the landscape of the north bordering Denmark is characterised by mountain ranges up to two thousand metres high, fjords and lakes, white sandy beaches and archipelagos, rivers and wooded plains dominate in the southern and central part of the country.

The fairytale worlds and childcare facilities in the branches of the Ikea furniture store were named after the popular southern Swedish holiday region of Småland.

Travelers and Activities

Sweden for nature lovers

In 1909 Sweden was the first country in Europe to declare a landscape a national park. Today there are 29 national parks and countless nature reserves in Sweden. For nature lovers, Sweden offers many opportunities for a relaxing holiday due to its sparsely populated and largely untouched countryside. The dense network of hiking trails also makes the remote areas of the country accessible to active holidaymakers.

Sweden for people interested in culture

The capital Stockholm awaits holidaymakers with some of the most beautiful sights in Europe. The Old Town is home to the Royal Palace, the Cathedral and numerous palaces and medieval houses. A little outside Stockholm, the baroque Drottningholm Castle with its Kina Slott Pavilion, built in the Chinese style, awaits its visitors with an exceptionally sumptuous interior decor. Fans of modern architecture will enjoy a stroll through the Gärdet district with its countless villas and houses in the style of functionalism.

Sweden for families

If you want to discover Sweden's traditional culture in a child-friendly way, Småland is the place to spend exciting days with your family. In Vimmerby, world-famous fairy tales come to life in the Astrid Lindgren Värld adventure park. The High Chaparral amusement park awaits families with wild west shows and attractions around cowboys and Indians. In the glass kingdom, visitors watch glassblowers at work and admire extraordinary works of art. Idyllic lakes invite you to swim and kayak. Children can collect blueberries and wild strawberries in the woods.

Top 5 travel tips

1. discover the culture and history of Sweden

At the Nordiska Museum in Stockholm, visitors can expect almost two million exhibits that trace the everyday life and culture of the country from the Middle Ages to the modern age. The collection includes fashion, traditional costumes and folk art, toys, jewellery and fully furnished rooms from several centuries. The magnificent building on the island of Djurgården, adorned with innumerable small pointed towers, is an impressive example of Northern European Renaissance architecture.

2. culinary delights as a unique concept

In the trendy star restaurant Ekstedt in Stockholm the team around the renowned chef Niklas Ekstedt creates Scandinavian dishes in a modern interpretation. In the kitchen only traditional cooking methods over open fire are used. The guests enjoy carefully processed ingredients from predominantly local production in a sophisticatedly designed and wooden rustic setting.

3. experience Swedish fairy tales first hand

If you visit Stockholm with children, you will experience the famous stories of Astrid Lindgren in an inspiring way. At Junibacken Museum at Djurgården, a colourful fairytale procession takes families through lavishly designed fairytale settings and enables encounters with famous figures such as Ronja the Robber's Daughter and Pipi the Longstocking. Special exhibitions, theatre performances, a restaurant with a beautiful view and a large bookshop ensure that children and adults spend an unforgettable day.

4th Renaissance architecture for young and old

Kalmar Castle in the town of the same name is considered one of the most beautiful Renaissance buildings in northern Europe. The complex from the early 16th century towers impressively on a peninsula and is a popular excursion destination. A lavishly designed museum with changing themed exhibitions, a castle lounge with creative activities and a historical wardrobe also offer a varied cultural programme for children.

5. fascinating insights into shipping

The Maritiman Ship Museum in the centre of Gothenburg is an adventure park that traces the history of seafaring in a fascinating way on around twenty ships. The historic ships lie on the banks of the Göta älv and can be visited on guided tours or on their own. Highlights of the museum are the streamlined submarine Nordkaperen and the destroyer Småland, which was built in the early fifties.
