Top 5 Views over Stockholm
Spread over 14 islands and surrounded by water, Stockholm is undeniably beautiful. There are pretty postcard views at every turn, whether cruising along the archipelago by boat or wandering through cobblestone backstreets. That being said, I would recommend getting up high to see this beautiful city from above. With few high-rise buildings, the skyline is only pierced with medieval church spires.
Skinnarviksberget is a naturally high hilltop in the centre of Stockholm with beautiful views over Gamla Stan. During the summer months it is buzzing with people who congregate here for picnics and sunset drinks under the open sky.
The best views over the Stockholm can be found atop the City Hall Tower which offers 360 degree views of the city. From up here you'll get the quintessential shot of the Old Town surrounded by water.
A walk along the Västerbron bridge provides panoramic views over and the Mälaren lake with the city of Stockholm in the distance. On a clear day you can see as far as Gamla Stan.
The City Hall is one of the most iconic and recognisable silhouettes in the city. Climbing atop the bell tower and entering the gold-adorned hall are must-do attractions for any visitor, but the best view of this architectural delight can be found on the water's edge on the island of Gamla Stan.
For a drink with a view, head to the slick outdoor cocktail bar Eriks Gondolen. On a balmy summer evening there is no better place to be than sipping on a chilled glass of rosé whilst watching the sun sink below the city's church spires.
