Since I’ve been to Sweden again in December I’d just love to share my experience and spots that I really loved. It is a quick guide on how to spend a weekend in the second biggest city in Sweden and still be able to get ahold of the vibe and structure of the city. Where to find the best bars for an apertif, spots to lunch in, shops to spend all your money and beautiful parks.
Delicious freshly baked treats at Da Matteo. They have a few locations already – pick one and be amazed – best cinnamon buns there.
Grab a burger and some drinks at Stockyard Buger Joint, right off Kungsportsavenyen.
Go to veggie heaven at LEGBG, because sometimes you can’t beat avo on toast.
Take a seat in the courtyard at chic wine bar Kafé Magasinet, order a drink and sit back for a spot of people-watching.
At Scandic Rubinen for really nice interior, impeccable breakfast and perfect location to walk everywhere.
Head to Ted & Teresa, for a beautiful store that’ll have you wondering why you only came there with carry on luggage.
Browse through Haga Hem, if you’re also looking for some amazing interior pieces.
Don’t forget Grandpa Vallgatan, you’ll definitely pick something to take home.
Walk by the shopping center Nordstan, even if you don’t wanna walk in, their shop windows alone are worth a visit.
Of course I could go on and on, since I’m a big fan of swedish fashion and sense of aesthetics -you’ll find all the labels there: from Acne Studios, Arket, Designtorget to Marimekko and Weekday.
At Da Matteo – as you need the perfect coffee to go with the perfect cinnamon buns.
It’s all right there in the name: Rosenkaféet – it literally means “Rose Café” and in summertime it’s surrounded by a stunning garden of roses.
CHECK OUT THE BOTANICAL GARDEN
You’ll find it right in the middle of town – it’s amazingly calming and you should definitely pay Palmshuset a visit.
Had the best time with my girl Julia!
