Stockholm Guesthouse listing city beaches,

Rålambshovsparken on Kungsholmen is a popular park for activities during the summer, with a great view over Riddarfjärden, City Hall and Gamla Stan. People come here to play soccer, boules, beach volleyball or brännboll, or take part in an aerobics session, but also to swim and sunbathe or meet with friends.
Young people prefer Rålambshovsparken, while families with children prefer the nearby Smedsuddsbadet.

Smedsuddsbadet is a favourite for families and its sandy beach and snack stands.

Tantolunden is a large park by Årstaviken on the island of Södermalm. Its location close to the restaurants and cafés of Hornstull, Mariatorget and SoFo has made the area a popular meeting place for Stockholmers. People of all ages meet here for swimming and picnics in the summer.

The idyllic island Långholmen is a popular spot, narrow beaches and several large rocks offer good swimming for the experienced.

Brunnsviksbadet, a swimming beach in Frescati Hage at Brunnsviken in the Ekoparken park. There are also charming inlets and beaches near Haga Park for experienced swimmers. Walk or take the subway to the Universitetet station.

skansen_midsommar_2014

Midsummer (20-22 june) is one of Sweden’s biggest holidays and most cherished traditions. The summer solstice is celebrated with family and friends. Visitors can experience a traditional Midsummer’s Eve at the Skansen Open-air Museum – download the preliminary programme for Skansens Midsummer 2014 – but there are also celebrations with dancing and music in Stockholm’s major parks, for example Vasaparken and Tantolunden.
Many Stockholmers leave the city to visit the archipelago or countryside homes to meet friends and families, eat pickled herring and new potatoes washed down with schnapps and beer. As this is a major holiday, many stores, restaurants and attractions are closed or close early. Stockholm Guesthouse still have available holiday homes such as apartments and bed & breakfast accommodations.
