Best Things To Do on Weekends

Gamla Stan

Stockholm is a popular weekend getaway destination in Europe - especially in the summer months. One of the city's top attractions is Gamla Stan (Old Town). History buffs booking cheap flights to Stockholm will be in heaven! The streets look like a postcard from the medieval times, and there's plenty to see around each corner.

If you can, try to plan your flights to Stockholm around Christmas. You can attend the Christmas Market that looks like something out of a fairytale! Other notable attractions in Old Town include the Stockholm Cathedral, the Nobel Museum, and the Royal Palace.

Vasa Museum

The Vasa Museum is one of the top reasons people decide to book tickets to Stockholm. The battleship sank on its maiden voyage in 1628, and hundreds of years later the Swedes launched an operation to salvage the wreck from the depths of the ocean. In the museum, you can watch a movie of the ship's history and marvel at the ancient relic. For families with young children buying return flights to Stockholm, entrance to the museum is free for anyone under 18 years of age.

Grona Lund

Grona Lund is one of the best things to do on the weekend for travellers booking flights to Stockholm. The amusement park has a range of rides for all ages as well a hair-raising rollercoaster. If you're buying an airfare to Stockholm for travel in the summer months, you can also attend one of rock and pop concerts held on the grounds.

Explore Stockholm's Subway Art

Some of the most popular stations are Stadion, T-Centralen, Universitetet Station, Hallonbergen, Radhuset and Morby Centrum.
