Stockholm is a city filled with natural hills and heights, but it’s also a city filled with tall buildings and on top of many of them: rooftop bars. Here’s a list of 3 rooftop bars in Stockholm with an unbelievable view. 

1. Urban Deli, Sveavägen 44
If rooftops in particular are your cup of tea, you’ll love Urban Deli on Sveavägen 44, you’ll be right among them, up in the sky. Urban Deli is a Swedish chain of concept: the Urban Deli’s consists of a restaurant, a food store and market hall. The Urban Deli on Sveavägen is the newest addition, and they have gotten very popular due to the rooftop bar on the 9th floor, open during the summer months. The rooftop bar is built like a sculpture park with different seating areas, and offers a 360-degree over the rooftops in the area of Vasastan/Hötorget. Urban Deli 9th floor have simple food for sales and a standard range of beverages. Be here on time, this bar is a regular after work-hangout for the stockholmers! Perhaps it’s the genuine and relaxed feeling up here that makes it so popular.

2. Scandic Continental, The Capital, Vasagatan 22
With an astonishing view over the City Hall, Södermalm and Riddarfjärden, rooftop bar The Capital in hotel Scandic Continental (Vasagatan 22) quickly became a success when it opened in April 2016. Scandic is the biggest hotel chain in the Nordic countries, with over over 230 hotels spread across seven countries. Scandic Continental re-opened in 2016 after a huge renovation (well, in fact it was a complete demolition and new building raised). Continental’s rooftop bar is open for everyone and has room for approx. 100 people and have sun from morning til’ evening. If you’re here on vacation, grab a seat early on and don’t let it go! The view from here is unbeatable.

3. Champagnebaren, Södra Teatern, Mosebacke Torg 1-3
Located on the hill of Mosebacke, Södermalm, you’ll find Södra Teatern with three (!) marvelous bars with a view. The best? Champagnebaren (the Champagne bar) is located on floor 7 and is the highest positioned bar in Södra Teatern. Champagnebaren is only open to the public during the summer, and has views over Gamla stan (the Old Town) and the north of Stockholm. This rooftop bar is quite small, if you happen to come when it’s full you can always head down to Mosebacketerrassen (Mosebacke Terrace), a huge yard where 2000 people can fit. From here, you won’t have a corresponding view to Champagnebaren, but it’s absolutely qualified for looking out over Stockholm. PS. If it get’s chilly, the inside bar Södra Bar has two bars with amazing views over the city.
