Words by Emma Foreman

Stockholm is undeniably the design capital of the world, so wrap up warm and prepare for a winter injection of Scandi cool. Spend your days exploring the archipelago; whether you stop for a ‘fika’ in the trendy Södermalm district, or soak up the capital’s history in the Gamla Stan old town, prepare to be seduced by this design and innovation focused city. 

Nobis Hotel

The Nobis Hotel is the epitome of Scandinavian chic; where contemporary design meets the traditional 19th century style of the house. It’s also home to one of the most breath-taking hotel bars in the whole city. 

Hornstulls market

If spending hours searching for hidden treasures in a vintage market is your idea of heaven, then Hornstulls street market is a must-visit. Spend a Sunday strolling along the waterfront stopping off at the many antique stalls, food trucks and independent designers selling their own creations.

Södra Teatern

Set on a hill, overlooking the entire city, you need to spend at least one of your evenings enjoying the incredible views at Södra Teatern.
