Soon in the morning, choosing a restaurant to walk along it or at night, it is always a pleasure to go for a promenade by this lake. Just sit in the backyard of the city hall facing it under the sun of May (it is even better by this time because not so much tourists ). It is really an... More

We were staying in Stockholm and did the great boat trip called Under the Bridges of Stockholm which takes you from the Baltic through lock gates and into Lake Malaren. The lake is considerably larger than the part we saw on this trip but what we did see from the boat was very interesting as the tour had a running... More

Our hotel was in Kungsholmen, right across the street from a park that bordered the lake so we spent a lot of time walking around alongside the water. There are wonderful running trails along the lake with views of the other islands and tourist attractions, including the City Hall, the Gamla Stan (old city) and Bromma. There are many places...

Lake Malaren extends to the west of Stockholm. You cross it if you visit the world heritage sites of Drottningholm or Birka further out. Birka is a Viking settlement on the island of Björkö. If you choose to visit - best way is to catch a boat operated by Strömma, in front of the City Hall. It is a full... More

Birka was one of the few known towns or cities of the Vikings and is on a beautiful island in Lake Malaren. The Vikings traded with much of Eurasia. Recreated Viking vessels and a town built according to experimental archaeologists, in the traditional forms, and with traditional tools is splendid -- as is the museum The boat trip from Stockholm...

When you walk around in Stockholm and the Old Town you Always have lake Malaren next to you. Yesterday there was a regatta on Riddarfjärden. Nice to see. The water is the nice glue of the different parts and islands of Stockholm.

The fact that Stockholm, wether it be the Baltic or Lake Mälaren, is surrounded, almost submerged into water, gives the town its magic. Almost everywhere you turn you will find loads of water and in the summer these are filled with the local's yachts. Just to sit around the different lakesides is a great enjoyment and the opportunity to take... More
