If you take a boat tour on Lake Malaren go to the oldest City in Sweden Sigtuna City founded in 980 This little village now is a very popular place to spend a half day in neat little shops and stores with a old church and pioneer cemetery. Great area for walking around and neat little eateries and even a... More

Nothing beats the stunning view of this beautiful lake with all the islands. Just love it. Visit by boat and by land. It's amazing.

We went to Drottningen Castle on the ferry round trip and enjoyed the entire journey. While views from the city might seem like enough to appreciate it, watching as you pass from city to suburb to countryside adds so much more. Our hotel (Malardrottningen) was on the lake so we got to appreciate its many moods, calm and windy.

We took the bus to Drottingham Palace and returned via Lake Malaren. From our location the bus was direct and much faster and, scenic in its own way. The boat ride back required a much longer wait, much longer ride, but we had a nice day and it was very scenic. I think most tourists take the boat both ways,... More

It pretty much surrounds Stockholm, so it is nearly impossible not to catch glimpses of it when you walk the city. There are tons of private boats, as well as commercial ferries and cruise lines that will take you to various islands, or through the canals. And the Swedes are proud to boast that the water is clean enough to... More

Took boat from Royal Palace returning to City via Lake Malaren sights. Lovely to enjoy the sights from the water, but the weather conditions made it difficult to stand on deck and take in the views. Cruise boat was comfortable and the hot drinks offered were very welcome. Better when the day is smiling.
