Vacationing in Stockholm with your teens

If you’re visiting Stockholm with teenagers (vacations with teenagers and their parents being notoriously smooth affairs), there are a number of options. Whether your kids are foodies, adventure seekers or art lovers, we reckon there’s something here for them.

ART

The Snösätra Graffiti Wall of Fame is a good way to experience some contemporary art outside a gallery or museum. The Snösatra Graffiti Wall is one of Europe’s largest graffiti exhibitions.

For cinema buffs, the Bio Rio Cinema is a must-see. Located in the Hornstull district, this cinema dates back to the 1940s, and its vintage feel and international selection of movies make it the ideal location to spend a rainy Stockholm day.

THRILLS

For thrill-seekers, the Grona Lund Amusement park is top of the list.  You can easily sink a whole day into the 130 year-old amusement park set on the island of Djurgarden. Special mention goes to the ‘Insane’ ride; a vertical spinning roller coaster where each seat rotates on its own axis – a truly dizzying experience.

FOOD

Stockholm has much to offer. The city’s food halls cater to all tastes and desires, such as the Hötorgshallen and the Östermalmshallen. The latter includes Lisa’s Fisk, a favourite to sample traditional Swedish fish stew.

If you feel like trying something more sophisticated, afternoon tea at the Grand Hotel Veranda is a good option (but remember the dress code is smart casual).

For a more original setting, go to the Rosendals garden café on Djurgarden island for lunch and coffee in a botanical garden surrounding.
