Some of you might think, going on holiday in the north during winter is crazy – but the winter can be very nice.
When I think about Stockholm, I remember immediately Karlsson-on-the-Roof. Maybe to most of you Pippi Longstocking comes to mind first – well maybe just if you think about Sweden For me Karlsson was a hero of my childhood and finally I was in Stockholm. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to take a tour on the rooftops of Gambla Stan (the district where Karlsson lives) – the winter has drawbacks, too – and Karlsson didn’t come down the roof, either
Instead of Karlsson I met another sweet little boy – Järnpojken. He is the smallest sculpture of Stockholm and to can be found in the backyard of Kyrka Finska (Finnish Church) in Gambla Stan. Don’t forget to bring him sweets – for good luck By the way, if you want to buy souvenirs in Stockholm that’s almost exclusively possible in Gambla Stan
Stockholm is a paradise for musseum enthusiasts! The museums grow like mushrooms … I anyway didn’t visit one – I simply was unable to decide I wanted to go to Junibacken – the tale museum – highly recommended not just for kids Unfortunately, it was closed for renovation untill February 12 – a day after my departure
Another must see is Stockholms Tunnelbanen – well actually you have to explore the Metro in any city But in Stockholm you’ll discover fascinating designed stations. I particularly enjoyed Solna Centrum and Kungsträdgarden.
Last but not least a few tips for fashionistas I could enjoy our favorite Ladurée macarons in Stockholm Stockholm has great shopping opportunities. In February, many stores still have SALE and at NK many luxury items are up to 70% discount. NK is comparable to the KaDeWe, Alsterhaus or Galeries Lafayette where I found some great deals
