If it is something that we love in Stockholm is that despite being a capital city, it is easy to find a nice park where you can have lunch or rest in the months when the weather allows it.
Therefore, here we tell you about the best parks in Stockholm to enjoy your visit in the city.
Located in the exclusive district of Östermalm, this park is one of the most central in the city. Since 1869, it is a public space, and in 1878, the Royal Library was built there. In addition, there is a playground to enjoy with the little ones.
Undoubtedly, the King’s Garden is one the most visited parks in the city, since it is not only located in the heart of Stockholm, but also offer multiple options. In addition to having a coffee or tasting something of the local cuisine, you can enjoy the different activities that take place during the summer, such as concerts and fairs. During the winter, the state mounts a free skating rink, where you can even rent skates if you do not bring your own.
The Island of Djurgården is one of the most beautiful islands of the city, and is ideal for a walk on the shores of the Baltic Sea or to go from one end to the other with a bike, that you can rent in different places. There you will find parks, embassies and other institutions, as well as the most visited museums in the country: the Skansen open-air museum and the Vasa Museum, the warship that sank within minutes of its maiden voyage.
Vitabergsparken is located on the island of Södermalm, in the area better known as the SOFO in Stockholm. That is, the blocks South of Folkungagatan. In this park you can enjoy the wonderful views of the city, and a picnic in one of the most atmospheric areas of the city.
