Took the elevator to the top to view the panorama of Stockholm and its surrounding islands which look to be covered with forests. Could see the Baltic sea and the cruise ships going to Finland. There is a souvenir shop and a restaurant.

The tower provides some great panoramic views of the city. After the Eiffel tower, we were glad that the tower wasn't as crowded and there were hardly any lines to get in. The gift shop downstairs is a little pricey but has some good choices for souvenirs There is a cafe at the top which serves drinks and pastries/cakes. We... More

We went there by bicycle, so passed another nice part of Stockholm. Very nice view from the tower. And then we went over a nice part of the Skansen Island

The building itself is ugly. The cafe is dirty and dusty and the food looks sad and tired as if it sat on the fridge shelf for at least a day or two. The panorama is ok, but there are better views of Stockholm to be admired and there is no need to go outside town like with this one.... More

We came to Kaknas first thing in the morning! We took the 69 bus from city center - T-Centralen (bus comes every 10 minutes) and got off right by the tower! We were the first ones there and it was empty!- a beautiful peaceful experience! Originally we were going to go to SkyView but I am very happy we picked... More

I wanted to see Stockholm as much as I could and what would be better way to do that than go somewhere high. So I was between Kaknästornet and SkyView and decided to visit the first one - SkyView is farther away from harbour (on foot 7,9 km, Kaknästornet 3,0 km), it costs more (145 SEK vs 55 SEK adult...

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).
