Reimersholme is one of the smallest islands that makes up the city center of Stockholm. It is so serene, green and romantic that it is easy to forget that it is a part of Sweden’s capital. If you, like me, are in love with islands and nature, then Reimersholme should be high up on your list of places to visit.
It feels like a little village and it’s just over 1km to walk along the beautiful shoreline, and each season has its special charm. In the spring, I love to sit down on a park bench and just listen to the birds; in the summer, the willow trees along the shore look their prettiest; in autumn, the colours of the leaves are very dramatic and in winter, a part of the water gets covered in ice and on a sunny day the waves make the most crisp, mesmerizing sound when little pieces of ice hit each other.
To get there, you can take bus 54 from the central station and go to the final stop – Reimersholme. The ride takes about 25 minutes and is quite enjoyable. If you pay attention, you will see Rålambshovsparken and the tiny island Långholmen from above towards the end of the ride.
