The second stop on the Dunesi summer tour is Stockholm. A city of pure pleasure, from museums and palaces, medieval cobbled streets and architecture to globally recognised cuisine, Stockholm has everything we could possibly wish for. It is no wonder that the people of Stockholm are considered to be a happy bunch.
Stay at…… The Grand Hotel.
The Grand Hotel in Stockholm oozes luxury from its waterfront location overlooking the Grand Palace and Gamla Stan (The Old Town). It has been home to celebrities and glittering society events for well over 100 years - it truly is rich in tradition and history. We are absolutely delighted to announce that the latest Dunesi resort wear collection can be found in the hotel's boutique. The style doesn’t stop there – Stockholm has design and style in its DNA, retro boutiques, vintage shops and upmarket designer stores, from fashion to furniture, we like to think that Stockholm is a little like Dunesi… stylish with something for everyone!
Fika at…… Vetekatten
Coffee and cake or Fika as the coffee break is known is big news in Sweden - consumption of coffee is higher here than practically every other nation, coming second only to Finland. Vetekatten established 90 years ago has a long line of bakers who specialise in creating the perfect pastry to have for Fika and while away some time catching up with friends.
Shop at …... Dunesi at The Grand Hotel (obviously)
If we put our shameless self-promotion to one side we recommend that you also head to Gotgatan for a serious amount of boutiques lining the street with everything from high street to designer names. The side streets are also home to some of the best record shops in Stockholm, not to mention the hipster bars and cafes where you can stop for a bite.
Sight see at ….. Stockholm Archepelago
The Stockholm archipelago is overflowing with culture and history, join one of the boats sailing around the islands and visit Viking graves or the maritime museum. Hike or bike along the clifftop nature trails and stop for a picnic and admire the view.
Dine at….. Rolfs Kok
Rolfs Kok launched in 2003 and soon firmly established as a favourite on the Stockholm foodie scene. The diverse menu is described as modern, Nordic and adventurous. We recommend the oysters with horseradish and the to die for chocolate truffle.
Party at….. Sodra Teatern
Variety is the spice of life and Sodra Teatern is home to a complex of bars and nightlife. Head to the rooftop champagne bar to admire the skyline views meanwhile you’ll find gig, club and karaoke nights at Bar Sodra. Once again as seems to be the theme with this city – there is something for everyone.
