INTERVIEW WITH FELIX HERNGREN

We met up with the Swedish director, actor and comedian Felix Herngren to ask him about his favorite spots in Stockholm!

What’s the best thing about living in Stockholm?

The best thing about Stockholm is the people! Stockholm people are maybe not the most impulsive and social individuals but when you get to know them, it’s a deeper friendship!

Do you have any "hidden spots” in Stockholm that you would like to share with us?

If you enjoy the outdoors, visit the Hellasgården recreation area. Now during the winter there is ice skating, cross-country skiing, and a swimming hole cut out of the ice. There’s also bike and walking paths and fishing. It’s perfect when you want to get out of the city. Takes about 20 minutes from downtown Stockholm!

If you could only choose one place in Stockholm for dinner. Where would you go?
Milles at strandvägen is one of my favourites!

What activities (museums + restaurants etc) would you recommend for someone who just have 1 day in Stockholm ?
Take a long walk along the quays! It’s the best way to see the city. Along Nybrokajen, Skeppsholmen and Norr Mälarstrand. Don’t miss it!

What’s the most nostalgic place in Stockholm for you?
Djurgården! ... Skansen, Gröna Lund, Junibacken and Vasa Museum. It was my childhood playground, where I biked many many miles...

What do you miss in Stockholm?
My wonderful Uncle Gustaf who lives in Lechen, Switzerland. I hope he moves back to Stockholm soon.
