    Tatort Stockholm

    September 10, 2019 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Auf Schienen durchqueren wir in nur 4 Stunden Südschweden und erreichen Mittags Stockholm. Wir haben nur wenige Stunden Zeit bis unser Schiff in Richtung Estland ablegt. Zunächst genießen wir Fischsuppe und weitere Köstlichkeiten in einem Fressgässle, in dem viele Köstlichkeiten angeboten werden. Dann schlendern wir durch die auf einer Art Insel befindliche Innenstadt mit wunderschönen Häusern und Gassen vorbei an den königlichen Palästen.
    Wir werden Zeuge wie ein Mann von 2 Polizisten mit Hilfe von Tränengas überwältigt wird. Ein freundlicher Mitarbeiter gewährt uns als Unruhe entsteht sofort Schutz in seinem Geschäft.
    Später stoßen wir auf einen ganzen Trupp von schwer bewaffneten Polizisten. Es handelt sich, wie uns sofort versichert wird, nur um eine Filmszene und wir sollen keine Angst haben
    Insgesamt gefällt uns Stockholm und dessen freundliche Bewohner gut auch wenn wir wissen, dass auch hier echte und fiktive Kriminalität statt findet.
    Bei der Schiffahrt von Stockholm bis ins offene Meer passieren wir hunderte von kleinen oft bewohnten Inseln. Es bietet sich uns der Blick auf eine einzigartige Inselwelt, die wie aus dem Bilderbuch wirkt.
    Vom Schiff fahren sind wir alle begeistert und wir bekommen einen Eindruck wie eine Kreuzfahrt ist. Es gibt Spielzimmer, mehrere Restaurants, einen Veranstaltungssaal und Geschäfte an Bord.

    Gamla Stan / Djurgården, Sweden

    May 5, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Day 2:

    Today we went to this amazing coffee shop called Johan & Nyström. Their pour overs were some of the best we've had and the cardamom bullè was out of this world! We made our way north to Gamla Stan and all of the buildings were so old they didn't even seem real. It was fascinating to touch the original brick of buildings that were built before America was even a country. We found ourselves going down every street to be sure we didn't miss anything, and were awestruck at every turn.

    We continued our walking tour on to Djurgården, which is basically a vacation island owned by the royal family. There are open parks, forest land, an amusement park, museums, and a zoo. We visited one of the museums that we had researched earlier, Vasamuseet. The museum contains a ship that set sail in 1628, sank on its maiden voyage, and was recovered in the early 60s (Note: when Danielle's grandparents visited Sweden, Vasa had recently been recovered, and was being salvaged in a temporary shipyard). We were baffled at the incredible size of the ship and the intricate details all over.

    We would have liked to continue our walk around Djurgården and go to the zoo called Skansen, but we were exhausted and had to walk all the way back home to Södermalm. Next time :) We made our own twist on Swedish meatballs for dinner, showered, and now in true, exciting married couple fashion... bed time.

    Tomorrow, we plan to take the train to Västerås to visit with Danielle's family!

    Godnatt!

    Stockholm - food

    September 16, 2015 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The Swedes make some delicious sweet food. They also invented cinnamon buns (kanelbulle), though they mar them with cardamon, and they're everywhere, even mini-packs from the supermarket :D
    I think I might get diabetes if I lived here though =/

    Stockholm - Old Town / game shop

    September 16, 2015 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The old town of Stockholm, on the island of Gamla Stan, consists of many narrow curving cobbled streets and tons of interesting little shops on the bottom floor of 3-4 story buildings. It makes it feel quite rustic (and maybe a little crowded) but it is all very clean and bright, too. Very pleasant!

    Among the little shops I discovered an amazing games/geeky-stuff shop. They even have an entire wall of Zelda stuff! I would definitely frequent this place if I lived here.

    Gamla stan

    September 20, 2016 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 16 °C

    Ok, we love Stockholm. The city is gorgeous people are friendly but not intrusive and its easy to walk everywhere. After breakfast we started our trek to Gamla Stan. We are two islands south of Gamla Stan and it took about 45 mins to get there. The entire walk we passedadorable shops and cafes with outdoor seating that provide pillows and blankets. Mom fell in love with each one. We passed a trendier neighbourhood with lots of clothing shops... We popped into a few.. And promptly got escorted out for looking like bums. Mom saw a big bird... Adding this becasuse there will be a picture. The amount of bikers here is amazing; almost no cars. Can easily cross main streets because there will be so few cars, however we both almost got run over by the bikers during rush hours. Typically they have their own roads , but sometimes you have to cross their path... Remember to look both ways!Read more

    Storkyrkan

    August 12, 2017 in Sweden ⋅ ⛅ 15 °C

    Stockholm cathedral, officially St. Nicholas Church from the 13th century. The altar piece is silver and ebony and even more striking than the pictures. The spherical candle holder represents the world and really caught my attention as excellent design and symbolism. If you can't tell, the organ extends beyond the pillars into the space over the side aisles.Read more
