With its postcard-perfect waterfronts, spice-rack-hued medieval buildings and abundant parks, woodland trails and things to do both outside and indoors, Stockholm is a place that craves to be explored on foot. The fun-size nature of the city makes that fairly easy; most of the popular attractions, restaurants and districts are reachable within a 20 to 40 minute walk from the city centre. Those opting for public transport will find it ruthlessly efficient, while high-speed wifi is widely available if you happen to get lost. The biggest impact on any trip to Stockholm is likely to be its highly varied seasonal temperatures and shifting daylight patterns. Read on for our guide to making the most of this Nordic beauty, whenever you choose to show up.
