Walking in Stockholm

Joseph Hollick

The nicest way to explore the centre of Stockholm is to walk. It takes about 25 minutes to cross central Stockholm on foot. And above that walking is a good solution to orientate within Stockholm's initially confusing centre. For bigger distances you should use the means of the very comprehensive system of public transport.

Stockholm's Lokaltrafik (SL) operates a large system of buses and trains (including underground) reaching well out of the city centre. In the SL-Center inside T-Centralen you can get timetables, informations and a useful transport map (35kr). Opening Hours: Mon - Fri 6am - 11.15pm, Sat and Sun 7am - 11.15pm).

Quickest of the transport systems is the underground (T-bana or Tunnelbana), which is based on three main lines. Buses can be less direct due to the nature of Stockholm's islands and central pedestrianization. Ferries also link some of the central islands.

If you travel more than only a few lines, you should buy a pass or a strip of twenty transferable SL Rabatt Kuponger (ticket coupons) or day-ticket for one or more days.

Taxis can be hailed in the street or booked on Tel. 08 - 15 00 00 (then it costs 25kr extra to get you up).
