The lift up to the cafe floor was fast and the cafe had nice seats all around to enjoy the view. Although the very top level were fenced up and it got in the way of taking a nice panorama, the cafe below is definitely a great place to just chill and see Stockholm in its entirety.

After reading other reviews on trip advisor we hired bikes and cycled out to Kaknas television Tower. Plenty of parking spaces for cars and bikes and the tower is impressive from underneath. Guy serving in the really big shop was very helpful and nice and lots of souvenirs at more reasonable prices. Views from the Tower itself were brilliant, we... More

With bus 69 (f.e. from Tunnelbana station Centralen) easy accessible 155m high tower offers fantastic view over whole Stockholm and surroundings. A must for every visitor (same as Vasamuseet).

What an awesome experience. We used our Stockholm card to pay the entrance fee and then whisked to the 30 th floor in a super fast lift. The view from the top was breathtaking. There were informative photo sheets giving the names of important buildings and attractions. There is coffee and cake place on this level and a restaurant further... More

The Kaknas can offer some nice views on a sunny day but it is fenced round, fencing is square of approx 3cm sq. I am lucky my compact super zoom camera lens just fits in the squares so I was able to take some nice photo's. Take the bus 69k it takes you straight outside or 69 with a short... More

Why not coins like other Stockholm park automats accept... so couldn't pay. But going up anyway, that's Stockholm city's lost that they didn't get any... More

We walked to the tower (lovely walk along the water and then through green parkland) but you can get bus 69. I thought the view was worth the entrance fee of circa Gbp 5. You can hold your camera through the holes in the cage to get some great photos. You see more of the archipelago from this position then... More

In the past, before there were lots of other ways to view the city from above, this was a very nice spot to visit as a tourist or even as a person living in Stockholm. Nowadays there are so many other options, that it seems a waste of money and time to go especially to Kaknastornet to check out the... More

Ended up coming here late afternoon as most other museums/attractions have already closed. Entrance fee was 50SEK which is relatively cheap compared to other attractions. It is a shame that I visited in autumn – a time when Sweden starts to get cold and daylight hours are short. It gets very cold and windy at the observation deck, and I... More

For 50kr you can go to the lower observation deck, from there you can take the stairs to the upper observation deck, up here you get 360 degree views of the city, unfortunately the upper desk is surrounded by a cage so photo's will contain a ugly fence. There is also a cafe at the top but I didn't try... More
