Stockholm City Transportation

Stockholm City TransportationYou can easily walk from one island to another, though the bus, t-bana, and ferry provide transportation as well.


The easiest way to get around this city is by walking. It takes about 25 minutes to get across the city on foot.

T-bana, Bus and Ferry

If you don't want to walk, then the quickest way around town is via the metro or T-bana (which runs off of three lines). Buses are less direct. Ferries are perfect for getting to the central islands. The Stromma Kanabolaget ferries operate between Nybroplan and Djurgarden. They run daily mid-May through mid-August and weekends and holidays from April through mid-May and from mid-August to September.

Stockholm has an extensive network of bicycle paths. While city kiosks provide free maps of all cycle routes, it's almost unnecessary (and a bit comical) to use them. The maps, hard to decipher, could double as Jackson Pollack paintings and are difficult to follow. Djurgardsbrons Sjocafe, by the bridge to Djurgarden, rents wheels. Cykel & Mopeduthyrningen, by the OK-Q8 gas station, rents both city bikes and mountain bikes.
