The capital of Scandinavia and nicknamed Venice of the north Stockholm has a lot to live up to and it doesn’t disappoint. The cold crisp winters and vibrant summers means Stockholm offers it’s inhabitants and visiting tourists something different no matter the season. The city center itself is built no fewer then 14 Islands and has numerous parks and forests near by, meaning to escape from the hustle and bustle of city life is only a short jog away.

For a day long adventure Stockholms world famous archipelago which connects the city to the Baltic sea is a spectacular boat trip all year round especially in the summer. If you want to experience the Swedish culture the city has more then its fair share to offer in terms fashion and architecture.

I’m a member of local London run crew, Run Dem Crew, and on a mission to run a sub three marathon. For me, the sheer size of London is the best thing, there’s always somewhere new to run.

Brioche

Anders Szalkai

“My favourite coffee shop and bakery is Brioche, located at Alviks Torg in Stockholm. Brioche is right by my job at Runner’s World, but that’s not why it’s my favourite, but because they are baking all their amazing bread on-site, and since bread is my one big weakness I am happy to have Brioche just down the stairs.”

A visit at Brioche is a great way to finish a run in the woods along the water by Alvik.

Eriksdalsbadet

Åsa Lundström

“Stockholm’s unique is the access to water and nature in all directions from the city center. Being a triathlete, having perfect swimming conditions right next to stunning running conditions is a privilege.”

Following the Sickla canal from the swimming pool towards the city center.

It’s a great option to get quality run efforts done, or even get to know new friends while your stretching.

Hammarby sjöstad

  • Work Out

Åsa Lundström

“Hammarby sjöstad allows for a fun and inspiring run between the buildings and along scenic water canals, only a block away from the capital city pulse. Only a few more km’s further up the canal, your urban surroundings transform into Scandinavian wilderness where all you can hear are yourself and the birds on your run.”

Hammarbybacken

  • Work Out

Anders Szalkai

“On the outskirts Stockholm you find an alpine ski-slope very near the city. In the winters you can go skiing, but that’s not why I’m there. I love to take on the grueling climb the hill offers. The slope is really tough but still not too steep so you can run all the way up, and the reward is a stunning view of Stockholm when you reach the top.”

If you can run up the hill without building lactic acid, then you know that you are in great shape.

“ Kvarnen is a restaurant on Tjärhovsgatan. The restaurant basically looks just like it did back in 1908, and they serve Swedish husmanskost. They also have a bar that’s perfect for after work Drinks.”

Lisa’s bakery and Café

  • Hang Out

Åsa Lundström

“As close to an aunts kitchen as you can get. Familiar atmosphere, the smell of freshly baked cinnamon buns and classic black coffee. The epic way to do a Swedish “fika”, a mandatory cornerstone to experience the Swedish culture, and a perfect way to take a deep breath, relax a bit and feel like home.”

Olympic Stadium

  • Work Out

Anders Szalkai

“Stockholm Olympic Stadium was the arena for the Olympic games of 1912 and is absolutely my favourite place to train. The atmosphere in the arena is amazing and It’s a unique possibility that anyone can gain access to the stadium and run on the same track as many Olympic legends.”

Crossing the finish line as winner of the Stockholm Marathon and hearing the cheers of the crowd in the arena was an amazing feeling that I will always carry with me.

Stora Blecktornsparken

  • Hang Out

Fotografiska

  • Hang Out

Linn Eklund

“If I have a few hours to spare and want to get as much inspiration as possible I recommend jumping on a bike and riding down towards Södermalm to experience  Fotografiska. I always start of in their shop to see what souvenirs I’m going to bring home with me this time.”

Hagaparken

  • Work Out

Linn Eklund

“As many of you know I love love love to run. There is no better way to clear the head than to take a run in Hagaparken. Especially during the summer, in the sunset around eight a clock in the evening. And if you’re lucky you might spot princess Victoria and prince Daniel aswell.”    

Lottas vintage

  • Hang Out

Linn Eklund

“This is my secret treasure, that’s not so secret anymore. It’s my favorite store in Stockholm! And I always leave the store with at least (!) one overfull shopping bag. You have to go visit this store if you like vintage!”

Pom and Flora

  • Hang Out

Linn Eklund

“I guess this is no surprise! I love the breakfasts at Pom and if I could I would eat it all day every day. My favorites are the 50/50-bowl and the avocado and egg sandwich.”

Riche

  • Go Out

Anders Szalkai

“In my twenties the combined bar, restaurant and night club Riche became one of my favourite places to go, and even if my visits aren’t as frequent nowadays I still love it. It has a relaxed atmosphere and the crowd is varied, and if you’re lucky you can spot one or two celebrities.”

When you have finished your delicious three-course dinner or just a simple starter, you can easily move over to the bar to continue your evening.
