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.

Lovely to walk over to here from the old town, or even better, take the boat from Slussen. Fantastic view of the old town and Sodermalm, lovely autumnal trees and peaceful walk along the quayside to get away from the hustle and bustle.

Went here in october and it was really beautiful with the autumn colours and everything. The views are beautiful, you can see the royal palace and parliament house from the island. Went also to the modern museum, that is located on the island.

Even if you just go to the Moderna Museet, you can't go wrong. The National Museum along the way is closed for renovation so be sure to check if they still have the temporary exhibit elsewhere.

After spending the day shopping and dining with friends on one of the busiest weekends I have ever encountered in Stockholm it was so nice just to walk the 10 min. out to Skeppsholmen and it is like you left Stockholm for the countryside. I have stayed here a couple of times now both for leisure and work and it... More

This is a small beautiful island, one of the 14 islands of Stockholm city. It's a nice place for a quiet walk or a quick tour by bicycle. It communicate through a bridge with Kastellholmen, one of the smallest islands of Stockholm, on which you will find a small castle (Kastellet). When accessing to Skeppsholmen, you will be able to...

We were here in the early fall, so there is no telling what the summertime brings, but this place is a beautiful oasis within walking distance from the old city. Home to the expectedly off-beat Modern.
