Skeppsholmen is an island really close to the main island connected with the very famous bridge Skeppsholmsbron aka the crown bridge that you can see on Stockholm postcards. In skeppsholmen there are museums like Moderna museet, church, and a ship-hostel. It's a really nice place for a stroll.

It is a bit off the beaten track for tourists and "natives" of Stockholm but it´s an island right in the middle of Stockholm perfect for strolling, biking and just take in the beautiful views of the capital!

This is a great place to go out for a walk around in the golden winter light either between museums or just to stretch your legs.

This is where the locals seem to go for a walk, with plenty to see and some nice views... the modern art museum is also located here.

One could arrive here with bus-65 from central station. There are three museums here: The Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities (Östasiatiska museet), Modern Museum (Moderna Museet) and Swedish Museum of Architecture (Arkitekturmuseet). There is a spectacular view of the old town and the Royal palace in front of the Museum of Far Eastern Antiquities. There is a smaller island connect... More

It's a 5 minute walk from north Gamla Stan to Skeppsholmen, eventhough it might be windy you have to go there, even if it's for only 5 minutes. From Skeppsholmen you have a great view of Gamla Stan and the christmas tree (in december). If you don't want to walk too far you can also just go to the beginning... More

A beautiful small island where many Stockholmers chill on warm summer days. There is also the very good Modern Art Museum on the island plus a very nice hotel if you'd like to stay overnight. I also like Hjertan, a restaurant on the Östermalm side of the island. Fun little terrace on the summer time.

I was fortunate enough to stay on the island so I had several opportunities to wander around. It is extremely tranquil with outstanding scenery & views of the other islands.
