From here starts Sweden as a organized (more or less) state. City is today almost same size as it was founded in 970 by Erik Segersäll, who installed him as a first king of Sweden and as a head of church. Boat trip took 2,5 h to Sigtuna, there we had 3 h time and then back to Stockholm. Worth... More

This is a lovely lake. You can get a 50min return steam ship trip West up the lake from outside City Hall to the summer residence of the Kings & Queens of Sweden Drottningham Castle.

It is a great place to go on sunny Sunday morning. You can take a tour, Birka is a great choice and with meal and a drink enjoy the nice surroundings. The lake is the biggest and you are pretty much surrounded by the city. Take a nice camera with you :) Nice way, different way to see Stockholm.

Lake Mälaren is located in the center of Stockholm, where you basically can see the city's business while chilling out by the lake. To see the lake at its best, go to Stadshuset's garden or Monteliusvägen. The view is just wonderful.
