Out and About

LuxeGetaways - - Solo Travel -

Eat­ing and sleep­ing is great, but Stock­holm hon­estly has a lot to of­fer just about any type of trav­eler. One of my fa­vorite things to do in a new city is to visit their strange (and of­ten a bit bizarre) mu­se­ums, which is why my first stop was the new-ish ABBA Mu­seum [Djurgårdsvä­gen 68 | +46 8 121 328 60], which is now one of the top at­trac­tions in town.

Whether or not you are a fan of the mu­sic, I find it hard to be­lieve any­one would not en­joy singing along to “Danc­ing Queen” in a pri­vate record­ing booth, or danc­ing with holo­grams of the mu­si­cians them­selves on stage. It is fun, kitschy and a must-do ac­tiv­ity in Stock­holm. The ABBA Mu­seum is also close to sev­eral other mu­se­ums, in­clud­ing the al­ways-pop­u­lar Vasa Mu­seum [Galär­varvsvä­gen 14 | +46 8 519 548 00]. Here you will find the only (al­most fully in­tact) 17th cen­tury ship that has ever been sal­vaged, and it is a sur­pris­ingly fun ex­pe­ri­ence. Stock­holm has a lot to of­fer first-time vis­i­tors. But if you only have a few days, make sure to get out there and ex­pe­ri­ence as much of it as you can, and of course, vow to re­turn and see even more of this col­or­ful and fun city as soon as pos­si­ble.
