AN ARTISTIC GUIDE TO STOCKHOLM

We love our hometown, this is where we live, eat, love and find inspiration. There are countless things to do in Stockholm, this time around we would like to share our favourite art galleries!

Where art meets nature

ARTIPELAG

Artipelagstigen 1, Gustavsberg

Situated in Stockholm's breath-taking archipelago, Artipelag is the ultimate destination for those who seek to be inspired by a unique combination of nature, architecture and art. Although Artipelag is located outside Stockholm it’s easily accessible, with busses and boats departing regularly from Stockholm city.

Upon arrival, you are immediately greeted with an astounding 54 acres of authentic Swedish nature. Why not begin your visit with a walk along the beautiful wide wooden footpath? A tranquil walk that showcases Artipelag's picture-perfect surroundings.

Once inside the main building, guests are greeted with a crackling fireplace, the original rock on which the building rests, and the water which surrounds and frames the site. Explore the exhibitions in the art gallery, or take a seat and enjoy a classic Swedish "fika" in the Café whilst gazing out at the striking surroundings!
