Finally summer has come to Stockholm! Time to spend more time outside, eating, listening to music and enjoy all the events taking place in the city this time of year. Here’s three things you can do in Stockholm in June.
See what Stockholm’s food scene has to offer at Smaka på Stockholm (A taste of Stockholm)
Smaka på Stockholm is one of the world’s biggest food festivals and it gathers both gastronomes and chefs to eat and talk about food. From the 1st to 6th of June, Kungsträdgården will turn into a mecka for food. 13 of the best food trucks in the city will park here, as well as some of the best restaurants in Stockholm – Farang, Den Gyldene Freden, Burger & Lobster and Bun Meat Bun to mention a few. The opening hours are 11.00 – 23.00 all days except the 6th of June. No entrance fee, so what are you waiting for?
Zara Larsson at Gröna Lund
In only a few years, she has become one of Sweden’s most famous artists and music exports – of course we’re talking about the cool Zara Larsson! On the 1st of June, she’s taking over the stage at Stockholm’s one and only amusement park, Gröna Lund. Sing along to hits such as “Lush life” and “I would like” for only SEK 115 (before 18.00).
Cheer at the participants at the Stockholm Marathon
For the 39th time, thousands of participants are going to run through the 42,195 meters that make Stockholm Marathon. The route passes landmarks such as The Royal Palace, City Hall and Royal Dramatic Theatre. During the marathon the city usually turns into a folk fest, with people cheering the participants along the route. Why don’t you join them?
