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.

Take any trip on lake Malaran. If you are into wikings, go to Birka. All trips are good, the one to Birka including the tour on the Island is excellent. A must for all wiking fans.

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...
