Brunch in Stockholm – What’s open and what’s closed this summer?

Open or closed this summer?

Open or closed this summer?

I tried and tried and tried to find a place to enjoy brunch last Sunday. Unfortunately most restaurants in Stockholm either shut down completely during the summer, or they stop serving brunch. Crazy considering summer is prime time for tourism.

Lost in Stockholm has a nice little post about which restaurants are closed this summer and The Stockholm Tourist also has a list of Michelin star restaurants that are closed during the summer.

Inspired by them, here’s my list of Brunch restaurants that are open this summer! (as well as a list of places that are closed, with re-opening dates) Read the rest of this entry »

A Non-Traditional Midsummer

Midsummer sunset

Midsummer sunset

Let’s get one thing straight from the start. I’m not Swedish, I just happen to live in Stockholm. I’m from Finland. My boyfriend is from Australia. Midsummer is part of my culture and my boy friend has embraced it with open arms.

 

Having said that, we don’t spend midsummer dancing around a maypole pretending to be small frogs. We’ve got our own traditions that involve Champagne and BBQ. No sill allowed!
