With so many options out there this Travel guide was a great way to narrow things down. The hotel we chose was in an excelent location for sight seeing on foot with the kids. Also they offered a babysitting service! We never really considered babysitting services while on vacation before but we dicided to take advantage of the option and we were able to catch a late show! Thank you @bebevoyage!!!

This Travel Guide came in super handy on our trip! We let our kids choose 1 thing from the "things to do" section everyday. They loved being able have a say in the days activities. My wife and I appreciated all the detailed tips about the public transport and the shopping areas. Even though we did the must do "touristy" things we were able to eat at quirky, off the beaten path, restaurants. We really felt like we were living like locals in a strange city.

Having this guide was a lifesaver! Knowing that our 5 year old is a picky eater my partner and I had come to terms with the fact that most of our meals would be at big fast food Chains also found at home. We decided to to try a couple of spots recommended in the Travel Guide and to our pleasant surprise our boy loved them! We were able to indulge our inner foodie and never once had to visit the golden arches of McDonalds the entire week we were there. We also are very grateful to have discovered a bunch of parks thanks to the guide. It turned out to be the highlight of our trip! We will definitely be using the guide on our next trip!

Why Bébé Voyage Loves Stockholm

Sweden is a paradise for families, and Stockholm one of the world’s top destinations when traveling with kids. Almost everything is child-friendly and accessible with a pram. Even if you do find yourself having to navigate a flight of stairs, many a passer-by will gladly help. Public facilities all have electric doors making entering and exiting a breeze; restaurants are mostly spacious and offer highchairs for children and a place to park the pram.

What is there not to love about Stockholm? Stockholm is a city on the water. Despite the extensive suburbs stretching out to the north and south of the city, the defining feature of the city is the intersection of the huge Lake Mälaren with the Baltic Sea. What to see in Stockholm depends largely on the weather and the season, but the options are extensive.

The oldest part of Stockholm, Gamla Stan, the small island straddling the huge lake Mälaren and the Baltic Sea, is one of the best preserved medieval city centers in Europe. This is probably because Stockholm is one of the few European capitals who has not seen a war for five hundred years. Its cobbled and winding streets make for a pleasant walk and the many cafes make for a nice break. Watch for the changing of the guards, every day at noon. During summer, the guards are often on horseback, which makes it a bit of an extra show.

After the changing of the guards, take the small ferry across the bay to the Djurgården island. This is where you will find Skansen, world-renowned outdoor museum of Swedish folklore, housed in historic buildings which have been moved here. It also doubles as a zoo. The island is also home to both the Vasa Museum, where a ship built during the 17th century that sank into the mud of the Stockholm estaturary is preserved, and the Nordiska Museet, a museum of ethnography that focuses on the lives of people centuries ago. Close by is Junibacken, a must-see for anyone with kids, a storybook interactive museum with exhibits from the treasury of Swedish children’s picture books, and a ride in homage to Astrid Lindgren, of Pippi Longstocking fame.

The city has several hotels with a well-deserved reputation for great service, including the Grand Hotel, generally considered the best hotel in Sweden. But for the visitor, boutique hotels are more interesting.

If you are a large family, short term rentals make for an economical alternative to hotels. As a family, you are probably best off renting a house or family apartment, which will take you some distance outside the city center. If you rent an apartment, stay on the islands closest to the center (Kungsholmen or Södermalm).
