Stockholm, the Capital City of Sweden is gorgeous in every season, but when I visited Stockholm in the Autumn month October, I had the pleasure of meeting beautiful autumn colors and the coziness of hot chocolates, cold weather, and lovely happy people.
Although it was rainy, grey and cold most of the time, Stockholm has a vibe which makes your day shiny, no matter what weather will be on the cards.
Stockholm, city of islands, bridges, and water
Stockholm is located in and around water and build on 14 islands and connected by 57 bridges which give this amazing city a romantic atmosphere. Make sure you do a boat tour to Discover Stockholm from the water! No.. this is not only for old people, in fact, this is for everyone a great opportunity to enjoy Stockholm from the waterside. You can just sit and relax and enjoy all the beautiful cozy little houses along the water and Stockholm’s wonderful historical buildings from a different view.

Stockholm has a combination of very modern and very historical buildings, architecture and art. It offers lots of cultures and many very inspiring, unique and great food concepts, restaurants, cafes, and shops.
My trip to Stockholm
When I ( Jo ) was still working in the Travel Industry, I had the opportunity to visit Stockholm for 2 nights on a Travel Familiarization in collaboration with the Dutch Touroperor De Jong Intra and Clarion Sign Hote Stockholm by the Choice Hotel Group.
My accommodation at the Clarion Sign Hotel Stockholm, a hop on hop off bus and a boat trip through Stockholm where complementary and I booked my plane tickets really cheap with Ryan Air, one of Europe`s biggest low-cost airlines.
Wander through the small streets of Stockholm
Back on land, just wander through the small cobblestone streets and explore the old buildings in the Gamla Stan, The Old Town or take the ( hop on hop of ) Stockholm bus. They also offer a combo ticket with Stockholm boat and Stockholm bus, which gives you the best opportunity to discover Stockholm in both ways.
Where to Stay in Stockholm
Clarion Sign Hotel Stockholm
The Clarion Sign Hotel is a 4-star hotel with really good references in the middle of Stockholm. It`s located close to the subway station, 5 minutes walk from the Stockholm Central train station ( where most buses from and to Stockholm airport stop as well ) and 10-minute walk from Stockholm City Centre where you can shop until you drop on Swedish design ( not only Ikea! 😉 )
In the Hotel Area are also different shops, restaurants, and cafes. If you want to get some coffee and cafe inspiration, you are in the right city 😉
The cozy rooms at the Clarion Sigh Hotel are light and modern with wi-fi, and a really comfy bed to relax in after a day of discovering everything Stockholm has to offer.
The next morning when you are having your breakfast, you will be in for a treat!
I was too busy with indulging myself in all the delicious food they offer for breakfast, that I completely forgot to take pictures! But believe me, when you are in Sweden and they offer fresh salmon for brekky, you know you are in the right place.
But believe me, when you are in Sweden and they offer fresh salmon for brekky, you know you are going to have the best and freshest Salmon on the menu.
If you are a bit of an active person in the morning, they also offer a gym, fitness center and even a jogging track. You can jump in the rooftop pool to cool down after your work out and enjoy the beautiful views from there.
