Where to run in Stockholm?

February 19, 2018 • 1 min read

Do you like to go running on your vacation? Stockholm is an excellent city to go for a run in. Here’s where to go for a run in Stockholm. 

Combining workout and sightseeing is like music to our ears (or should we say muscles) – we love to go running in a new city. It’s a great way to get to know the nearest area (and perhaps find some things to check out later?). If you’re staying at a hotel in central Stockholm, you have a couple of options to choose between. Our favorite, since we love to look at stuff while we run, is the route around the bay Riddarfjärden in central Stockholm. Being approx. 7 kilometers / 4 miles long, the route around the area called Riddarfjärden offers a view of three city districts: Kungsholmen, Södermalm and Gamla stan (Old Town). Amazing, huh? Below is the approximate route. Expect to meet locals on their way to work, tourists by the City Hall and to see a big glimpse of what daily life looks like in Stockholm. What else could you want for your run in Stockholm?
