We asked our Stockholm Spotters about the best blogs in their city. Here’s a list of our favorite Stockholm blogs. In random order!
Slow Travel Stockholm
Slow Travel Stockholm “encourages people to resist “Fast” Travel – the frustratingly frequent habit of speeding through all the best known landmarks of a city in 24 or 48 hours – then leaving again.”
Spotted by Locals of course wholeheartedly recommends traveling slow, and we’ve promoted the Slow Travel network (Berlin & Stockholm) a lot in the past! The lady who manages this fine Stockholm blog about all things Stockholm you can do slow, Lola Akinmade Åkerström, is a well known Stockholm based travel writer and excellent photographer.
As a city guide, View Stockholm is great if you are interested in the many aspects this city has to offer. There is a summary to See and do, looking for accommodation and great tips on locally hyped shopping areas. The blog is written by Stockholmers and expats from the U.K, Netherlands, Spain and Italy that have been converted to real locals over the last years, and they all have their own angle of expertise and writing style!
Visit Stockholm is a blog that is provided by Stockholm City and because of that, it is very much up-to-date with the latest additions to the city. If you want to know all about the latest new restaurants, bars, or, perhaps you need to find out more about getting around, wi-fi spots, airport information and ferries and cruise ships, this is the site to visit!
The Local Sweden
The Local Sweden is an international network of websites with local news in the English language. The network started in Stockholm, and they are obviously very strong there. An excellent website for non-Swedish speaking locals in Stockholm to stay up-to-date!
On Sweden Tips you will find local events, latest additions to the city. You can read about recommendations for short trips over a weekend, and also much longer visits, including a whole summer vacation. It’s written by an expat family living in Sweden for the past 10 years and knowing all ins and outs as Stockholm as one of the high lights.
