Vacation rentals in Stockholm
The Swedish capital Stockholm, which has been built on several islands and has grown together over centuries to become a modern metropolis, has the right holiday accommodation for every taste and budget. No matter whether you are looking for a romantic apartment for two, a holiday apartment with a view of the water or a family-friendly vacation rental in the countryside. You'll find what you're looking for in Stockholm. The most lively part of Stockholm is the city centre, where you can choose between Gamla Stan, a city island completely surrounded by water, the Norrmalm district with its numerous bars or the Katarina-Sofia cultural district. Regardless of your choice, you benefit from short distances to attractions such as the ABBA Museum, the National Museum and the Vasa Museum. An ordinary vacation rental is too normal for you? Then a floating vacation rental is certainly the right thing for you. You will find what you are looking for on the shore of the island of Skeppsholmen, close to the city centre, where some of the ships that have been converted into holiday apartments are anchored. More Scandinavia is not possible!
Holidays in Stockholm
Travelers and Activities
Stockholm offers not only holiday accommodation for every taste, but also attractions where young and old get their money's worth. While plant lovers are drawn to the Berguis Garden, for example, which attracts a variety of plants from all over the world, adventurous holidaymakers look forward to a detour to Gröna Lund's leisure time. Besides roller coasters like the Jetline, the Insane and the Twister you can expect other exciting attractions like the Flygande Mattan and the ghost train. Also on the cultural side there are some pearls waiting in Stockholm like the State Historical Museum and the Vasa Museum, where everything revolves around the legendary ship "Vasa", which was not even floatable due to its weight. For lovers of archaeology, a boat trip to the medieval trading centre Birka, which is not accessible by car, is also obligatory. And those who want to see all the big sights of Stockholm from the water can book the royal canal tour that leads you through the city centre as well as through the royal national city park Djurgården. If you like it a little more active, you can go on an individual sightseeing tour in a canoe together with your children. An absolute highlight for the little guests is the regular Stockholm ghost tour. Stroll along the side of a sinister journeyman through the winding alleys and fathom the darkest secrets of Stockholm in the light of torches.
Stockholm is often called the Venice of the North: Built on 14 islands connected by 57 bridges.
Things to know
The event season will start in Stockholm on 30 April with a highlight. The big Walpurgis Night begins on the grounds of the Skansen Open Air Museum, where spring is welcomed with dance and music. The tour continues in June with the Stockholm Marathon, the national holiday accompanied by royal splendour, and Sweden's most important festival, Midsummer's Day. The rest of the summer is also anything but boring thanks to events such as the Stockholm Jazz Festival in July and the Cultural Festival in August.Best travel time
The best period for a trip to Stockholm is the short but warm summer. From mid-June to the end of August, up to 10 hours of sunshine and temperatures beyond the 20 degree mark provide ideal conditions for sightseeing and a dip in the cool water of the numerous bathing areas. Those who want to enjoy their sightseeing tour outside the holiday season can book their vacation rental for the cooler but still sunny low season in May and September.

For every music fan, the ABBA Museum is a must! With the optional audio guide you can even have the story of the Swedish band told to you personally by the band members! Numerous famous and lesser-known exhibits, such as instruments, costumes and paintings, bring the splendour of the 70s back to life. Sing karaoke or just listen to the popular hits.

A very nice Christmas tradition is the Lucia festival, which is celebrated in Stockholm in the St. Nikolai every year. One day in December a girl carries a wreath of candles on her head into the church, she sings and the whole church is brightly lit by candlelight. A particularly moving procession, in which you will particularly enjoy the choral music and the atmosphere.5th visit to the Nobel Museum
