If you’re an active researcher, you’ve probably discovered that Stockholm has a lot of “best views”. One of them is called Fåfängan – the most astonishing one according to me.
Fåfängan is located southeast of the city, and you can get here easily with a ten-minute straight walk from Slussen. It’s not hard to miss from a distance, there are trees and flags in a square surrounding the top.
Wooden stairs will take you upward, and soon you’ll witness the Stockholm skyline, the island Djurgården, rooftops, and cruising boats arriving and departing. In the summer the best way to experience the top is by bringing your own picnic or bottle of wine and choose a favourite spot on the cliffs. During the cold months though the best way is to visit the café, where they offer gluten free brunch every Saturday and Sunday! (book on their website).
