We asked our own Stockholm bloggers about their favorite independent Stockholm blogs & websites. Here’s a list of their tips in alphabetical 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 blog is Lola Akinmade Åkerström, who is a well-known Stockholm-based travel writer and photographer.
Sthlmfood.com (in Swedish – translation here) started as an Instagram account in 2014 by Rebecca Brage, with the aim of spreading restaurant inspiration in Stockholm. It quickly became Stockholm’s largest account in its category. Their goal is to guide you to the best food in town, no matter what you are looking for. A coffee break, a quick snack, budget meal, or a fancy restaurant for a special occasion? They have tips for them all!
On Sweden Tips you will find local events and the latest additions to the city. You can read about recommendations for short trips over a weekend, and also much longer visits, including an entire summer vacation. It’s written by an expat family that’s been living in Sweden for the past 10 years.
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 staying up-to-date!
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, this is the site to visit!
