Saturday October 6, starting at 11.00 in Kungsträdgården.
Time for step 2 in my “Things to do” guide. I promised you yesterday that I would give you my favorite places and tell you what you don´t want to miss and today I can present a must do for a sunny day. I personally love to watch people (in the non freaky way). I love how people lights up during spring and summer and it´s like watching people melting after a long and dark winter. So my tip for today is Kungsträdgården. In the centre of Stockholm lays this fab place where people of all ages are playing street chess, eating ice-cream or just enjoying life watching people stroll by.
Kungsträdgården is a place we’re festivals, markets and other happenings takes place all year around. Stockholm Pride for example was held in Kungsträdgården last year. In summer there are several music festivals you can take part in free of charge. If you visit this place in the winter you shouldn´t miss the opportunity to do some ice-skating in this truly beautiful and romantic spot in the middle of the city.
You shouldn´t do this if: Just the thought of people everywhere gives you a rash.
You should do this if: You dare to ask a stranger out on a date.
Bundle up and let’s see those mad Ice Queen skills!

Scandinavia’s largest Pride festival is to take place between the 1st – 7th August. Haven’t booked a ticket yet? Then it’s about time you act!
This year’s Pride will take place in the very centre of Stockholm: the beautiful Kungsträdgården park as well as Sergels torg square with the Culture House just next to it, will host this year’s festival.
Another new exciting development is the scrapping of the entrance fee. Kungsträdgården is to be open to each and every one of those who which to participate. And as the Pride theme for 2011 is “openness” we think that’s a lovely development.
Great parties, interesting political seminars, meeting the love of your life – everything happens at the Stockholm Pride! Now book that ticket! For places to stay, click here.
