Stockholm for young people

Most Popular

Young people have somewhat different requirements than children – and Stockholm has much to offer this age group. Here are some tips for activities for young people; hopefully, they’ll let their parents join them.
Picknick i Stockholm

RÅLAMBSHOVSPARKEN

The triangular park, called “Rålis” by the locals, is framed by Västerbron, Rålambshovsleden with Kungsholmen’s city silhouette and Riddarfjärden’s shimmering water. The park consists of a great lawn leading down toward the beach, an excellent spot for sunbathing or a picnic. Rålambshovsparken has dedicated spaces for playing boule, beach volleyball, skateboarding. Or how about some good old-fashioned stickball? In the summertime, movies are shown on a large screen and there are both restaurants and cafés – and this doesn’t even include all that Kungsholmen has to offer.

Address: Rålambshovsparken, Stockholm

GRÖNA LUND

Gröna Lund on Djurgården is a magical world where the impossible is made possible. Old is made young; small is made big; up is down, and down up. Gröna Lund is packed with attractions for people of all ages, those who are scared and those brave. There are pentathlons for the strong (and not-so- strong), lotteries, dancing, shows, kids’ entertainment, and concerts. The Djurgården Ferry docks at the entrance of Gröna Lund but you can also go by bus, commuter train or simply stroll along Strandvägen to Djurgården.

KULTURHUSET

At Sergels torg, in the middle of Stockholm you’ll find the arts center Kulturhuset – a veritable bookshelf filled with culture. Kulturhuset also houses Stadsteatern, which always has exciting new performances in an intimate setting (it housed Sweden’s parliament for some years while its buildings were renovated). Kulturhuset is a living environment, constantly full of motion and always boasting new exhibits. Kulturhuset has multiple restaurants and cafés with a view to Sergels torg and the Sergel Fountain with its beloved and simultaneously intensely disliked “pin” – the sculpture Kristallvertikalaccent.
