Hornstull’s Marknad is an outdoor street market situated in the western part of the Stockholm borough Södermalm. In favorable weather conditions the market stretches along the water in Hornstull. In case of rain the market will move up under the bridge (Liljeholmsbron) which connects Södermalm to some of the southern suburbs. Expect to find a variety of vintage, second-hand, food, art and everything else that comes with a proper street market.
The Sunday market has, in a short period of time, become one of Stockholm’s favorite Sunday activities; a natural spot to meet up with your friends, grab some food and coffee, browse the market and enjoy a day out and a day off.
Open 11-17 every Sunday May-Sep, except midsummer (June 23)

Design in all its glory but what happens when design goes wrong?
The Vasa Museum has opened again after being closed for renovations and a newly built extension of the museum building! The Vasa is the only preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world, and a unique art treasure. More than 95 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.
The 69 meter-long warship Vasa sank on its maiden voyage in the middle of Stockholm in 1628, and was salvaged 333 years later in 1961.
Today the Vasa Museum is the most visited museum in Scandinavia, with over one million visitors a year. www.vasamuseet.se/en/

We are so excited! ABBA The Museum will open in Stockholm on the 7th of May.
Have you ever seen the Northern Lights? Nordic colors and shapes was what inspired the Swedish designer Owe Sandström while making these fabulous outfits for ABBA and one can certainly see the resemblance with the Nordic night sky. This picture was taken after the tour started in Edmonton Canada in 1979. The band wore white outfits specially made for each one of them. In common for all were that all garments had blue or silver stripes somewhere on them. To see more of ABBA’s fantastic stage clothes visit ABBA The Museum.
