I really,  really enjoy walking in cities. It’s just the best way to get to know a place. And Stockholm is a handy city – if you’re in the inner city (”innanför tullarna”) you can use your feet to explore. Good shoes is a must, of course. And you’ll need some pit stops. And – don’t do the whole city in one day.

Here, I give you a list of my favourite areas for walking and exploring. As is the case with this web site – it will grow. The list will get longer over time. So, keep coming back, I have lived forty years as a Stockholmer and have plenty to tell.

Let’s start with Djurgården and more particularly, Skansen.
