Stockholm has a world-leading design scene, picture-book palaces and an enviable berth in the waters of an idyllic archipelago – so to say that it’s an easy city to fall for sounds a little trite. But it’s more than looks that grace this place (even if a dedicated Beauty Council does oversee the architectural developments). There’s also a crop of new restaurants that has brought variety to a once one-dimensional food scene. In the hotel industry too, recent openings have upstaged the staid options, while the shops teem with Swedish-made goods. Join the Monocle’s editors for a tour of their finest finds and discover what to do within the eminently admirable Swedish capital.
The Monocle Travel Guide series reveals their favourite places in each city they cover, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best spots for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks to get you away from the crowds and their favourite places to eat everything be it tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
