Family friendly travelling in Stockholm

Sweden’s glamorous capital has a way of making everyone feel welcome. Stockholm reviews often mention the city’s friendly atmosphere and safe streets, which make it particularly suited to a family vacation. Although it is not the cheapest holiday destination, this is more than made up for by the range of family activities on offer—from swimming at one of the many beaches spread across the city’s harbors to discovering the hidden delights of the Toy Museum.

Things to see in Stockholm

Trade and tourism in Stockholm revolve around the water and no trip is complete without a visit to the islets of Sӧdermalm and Kungsholmen. A canal tour is a great way to explore the city center with kids, while the numerous beaches will offer a chance to cool off and expend some excess energy. There is also a good range of family-friendly museums, with interactive child-focused exhibits. A firm favorite is the Junibacken literary museum, a bookshop which has now transformed into a literary emporium. Fans of Pippi Longstocking will love a visit here, as much of the museum is dedicated to the author Astrid Lundgren. Kids and the young at heart will be able to fill an entire day at the Skansen Open Air Museum. Located on the beautiful island of Djurgarden, this family attraction combines a zoo, a play village, and a museum dedicated to traditional Swedish handicrafts.

Family-friendly hotels in Stockholm

Family-friendly hotels in Stockholm usually have extras such as high chairs and baby-changing facilities provided as standard. Prices tend to be high but this is more than matched by the level of service offered. Some kid-friendly hotels in Stockholm offer family rooms with multiple beds, giving an affordable option for those traveling with children. There are parks and playgrounds across the city, so most central hotels are within walking distance of somewhere the kids can play. For extended family vacations in Stockholm, it is possible to sublet apartments and houses, providing facilities for preparing family meals and relaxed evenings playing games or watching TV.

Where to stay in Stockholm

Families on vacation in Sweden have a large number of family-friendly hotels in Stockholm to choose from. The Sӧdermalm area is a great place to stay if you’re looking for a laid-back holiday as its affordable family-friendly hotels are within walking distance of the transport and toy museums. The main attractions for children are clustered in the slightly more upmarket Ӧstermalm district. There are a number of comfortable family hotels here, conveniently located for the Skansen Open Air Museum and the Grona Lund Amusement Park. For a more beach-oriented vacation, book into a hotel on the island of Kungsholmen—home to the kid-friendly Smuddsbaddet beach.

How to get to Stockholm

Stockholm is very well connected, with four large international airports as well as a busy port offering regular ferries to destinations across Europe. The airports are all connected to the city center by regular buses and Stockholm’s Arlanda Airport also has a high-speed train link into the capital. For domestic flights, Bromma Airport is a good bet as it is small, easy to navigate, and very close to the city center. For international options, the best airport is Arlanda—the largest airport in Sweden. Train travel to Stockholm is also a fast and reliable option, with good connections offered from Germany.
