Experience the magic of Stockholm through the eyes of The Green Guide

Your personal Stockholm guide for a memorable and exciting city expedition. 

Who am I ? 

I am Stefan, or the green guide as they call me. 

Welcome to Stockholm, my beloved city! But let me share a little secret with you—I was born in Västerås, a charming town just 94 km from this vibrant capital. My love affair with Stockholm began when I was a mere five years old, and the memories of that day remain etched in my heart.

After completing my education, I embarked on a thrilling journey as a tour guide that took me far and wide across Europe and Asia. For 25 incredible years, I roamed the globe, sharing the beauty of different cultures and places with fellow travelers. However, when I turned 49, I decided to make Stockholm my permanent home, drawn back to the city that had captured my heart as a child.

In my free time, you'll often find me exploring new destinations, sometimes with dear friends, and other times reveling in the freedom of solo travel. I have an insatiable appetite for knowledge and love to dive into the pages of a good book. Museums are my playground, and discovering new restaurants is a delightful adventure. Dining with others is a sacred ritual for me, a moment of camaraderie where we exchange not only tastes and aromas but also stories, interests, and memories.

Now, let me be your guide to this incredible city, Stockholm. I can't wait to meet you and share with you the magic and wonder of this place I call home. Together, we'll embark on an unforgettable journey filled with culture, history, and delicious discoveries. Welcome to Stockholm—I look forward to our adventure together!

Stockholm Bucket List

Gamla Stan

Gamla Stan, the Old Town, is one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded 1252. 

Vasa Museum

The Vasa is the best-preserved seventeenth-century ship in the world and a unique art treasure. More than 98 percent of the ship is original, and it is decorated with hundreds of carved sculptures.


Skansen is a favorite both among Stockholmers and visitors passing through, and it’s a perfect family outing. The oldest open-air museum in the world, with animals native to Scandinavia, a children's petting zoo, and two indoor aquariums.

Picnic at Södermalm

Vita Bergen, commonly known as Vitabergsparken, is a popular picnic hangout located on Southern Södermalm. The park’s high elevation makes it a great viewpoint of Södermalm on a sunny summer’s day.

Walk along the water

This is a really nice coastal walk not too far from the heart of the city. Vinterviken is in the south of Stockholm and easily reached by public transport, or if you have a car there’s free parking. There’s a gorgeous big cafe called Winterviken with lots of outdoor seating.

Fotografiska museum

A vibrant place for photography, food experiences, inspiration and events. We show photography and visual art from all over the world, from the most well-known photographers to the new generation of image creators. At Fotografiska, everyone is welcome.

Eat a cinnamon roll

The average Swede eats 316 cinnamon buns per year! In Sweden, 'fika' is an essential part of everyday life. In fact, it's so sacred that two coffee breaks per day are an unwritten rule in many Swedish workplaces. And, while newcomers to Sweden are often sceptical about fika at first, many end up admitting that some of the best ideas are hatched on fika breaks.

Sing in Abba Museum

ABBA The Museum is more than a museum. Naturally, the members’ costumes, gold records, original items, memorabilia, and much, much more are here. But at this museum you are an important part of the experience! We simply want you to experience the feeling of being the 5th ABBA member.
