Staying at the Grand Hôtel makes it easy to enjoy Stockholm. Literally in the heart of the city, you have a handful of the city’s most exquisite attractions right at your feet. On one side you will find the Royal Palace and the Old Town, whilst on the other the exclusive Strandvägen Boulevard and the Royal Game Park. The Opera House, National Museum, Royal National Theatre and Museum of Modern Art are all a stone’s throw away, as are Stockholm’s best shopping streets and choice of nightclubs, bars and restaurants. In fact, Grand Hôtel’s own restaurants: the Cadier Bar, the Veranda and Mathias Dahlgren, are among the top dining establishments in town. Whether you are venturing in the vicinity of Grand Hôtel or Stockholm at large, we want you to enjoy our beautiful town to the fullest.
Take a walk or catch a tram along Strandvägen to the Royal Djurgården national city park, a calm island oasis close to the city centre and home to several of the city’s top museums and attractions. Here, a visit to Junibacken is a must when travelling with children. Indeed this interactive storybook world of Astrid Lindgren is truly a delightful place to visit for anyone – young or old – who has read Pippi Longstocking, Emil in Lönnebergas, or stories by other Nordic children’s writers such as the Moomin novels by Tove Jansson.
At lunch time, stroll across the park for a bite to eat in the sun at Villa Godthem. Originally the home of legendary opera singer Carl Johan Uddman, this beautiful old villa with its lush garden has served as a restaurant since 1897, nowadays with updated versions of Swedish classics on the menu. The restaurant’s signature dish is the plank steak or fish, cooked on oak planks with a thin layer of virgin white cedar wood to enhance the flavour.
After lunch, head over to the Gröna Lund amusement park, for entertainment and attractions for the whole family, from roller-coasters, a fun house and merry-go-rounds to the highest carrousel in the world. With roots dating back to 1880s, the park is a true piece of Stockholm history. If the family is still feeling peckish after all the candy floss and hotdogs, then head back to the Grand Hôtel for an early evening hamburger at the Cadier Bar.
Hop on a ferry at Nybrokajen for a scenic boat trip to Arkipelag, an international venue for art and good food, privately funded by the founders of Babybjörn. Beautifully set on Värmdö in the Stockholm Archipelago, it is just 20 minutes from the city centre. Take in the exhibition and eat a delectable lunch on-site, inside or out, with magnificent sea views as your backdrop. Arkipelag’s menu takes inspiration from the current exhibition and is sourced from local, ecological producers.
After lunch, enjoy the boat ride back to Nybrokajen and then stroll over to the Hallywyl Museum, the former home of Count and Countess Walther and Wilhelmina von Hallwyl, and today one of Stockholm’s most eccentric and engaging cultural Institutions. This palatial residence was built as a winter home for the immensely rich couple, completed in 1898. Sip a drink in the exquisite inner courtyard, while admiring the fine architecture and clientele.
Eat dinner at Konstnärsbaren (The artists’ bar), or KB as it is known by the locals. Founded in 1931, the restaurant is located just around the corner from Sweden’s main stage, the Royal Dramatic Theatre, and various other cultural institutions. A favourite watering hole of the cultural elite, KB is also a stronghold of Swedish home cooking. Still decorated with the original art work and furniture, there are some real gems to be seen – ask to see the private dining room upstairs before you leave.
