Stockholm Sweden

winter around djurgården

January 23, 2016

There are no busy streets or large old houses on Djurgården island, wchich I usually love so much, but somehow it is still one of my favourite places in Stockholm. I used to end up there from time to time, taking a tram no 7, or a small ferry from Södermalm, or just simply on foot, as it was a perfect end to a stroll around Östermalm. I enjoyed Wednesday evenings at Nordiska Museet on the island, when they had a free entry there, of course I visited Skansen and Vasamuseet too, and sometimes when the weather was nice I just went to the end of the tram line, and sat by the water where it was so lovely and quiet, as most of the people stayed around the Tivoli park and museums. And when the winter came, I loved visiting Djurgården as much as in the summer. Last time I told you about walking across frozen lakes, surrounded by forests. That time is was a bit to the south, around Nacka island, but it turned out that Djurgården was a perfect spot for such walks too. Just as the temperatures got low enough, the waters around the island froze and you could have some lovely winter strolls, admiring the impressive museum buildings in the distance.
