Skyview Stockholm: our complete guide + map

skyview stockholm

Would you like to visit Stockholm’s Skyview? Wondering how to get there ? Where can you buy your tickets ? You’ve come to the right place!

The Skyview in Stockholm offers you an exceptional opportunity to discover the Swedish capital from a unique vantage point.

We’ve provided all the practical information you need to make your visit easier (prices, visiting time, opening days and opening hours)….

Where to get some height in Stockholm?

The Stockholm Skyview is one of the highest points in Stockholm, and an activity we recommend when visiting the city.

Inaugurated in 2010, it offers a unique opportunity to admire the city from the top of the Ericsson Globe, the world’s largest spherical building.

Visitors board a glass gondola that glides along the curve of the Globe, rising to 130 metres above sea level. From this exceptional vantage point, you can contemplate sweeping panoramic views of Stockholm, from the bustling city center to the peaceful waters of the archipelago.

How to get there ? (+ map)

Skyview is located in the Johanneshov district of southern Stockholm. It’s easily accessible by public transport, with the metro taking the green line at T-Centralen to the Globen stop (around 20 minutes from the city center), or by car, with parking available nearby.

Once there, you won’t want to miss this impressive white dome and its gondolas!

Course of your visit

The whole experience, including the ascent, time at the top and descent, usually takes around 45 minutes. A museum included in the ticket explains in detail the creation of the Skyview.

Our tips for your visit

  • Best time to visit: For the clearest views, opt for a visit on a sunny day. Early morning or late afternoon often offer softer light for photography. Don’t forget the sunset!
  • Weather considerations: Skyview works in most weather conditions, but visibility may be affected by heavy fog or snow.

Our opinion: a family activity

This is undoubtedly one of our best views of Stockholm. From the top of the Ericsson Globe, the 360-degree view reveals not only the expanse of the city, but also the harmony between urbanism and the surrounding nature. From above, it’s a very green city!

Skyview is an adventure for all ages. The safety and comfort of the glass gondola mean that even the youngest or most reluctant climbers can enjoy the ride without worry (even those suffering from vertigo). It’s a fun way to appreciate the city from a unique perspective, making it an educational and entertaining experience for children.

Where to sleep in Stockholm?

To get the most out of your stay, we recommend the Norrmalm and Östermalm districts. These districts are located right in the center of Stockholm, so you can easily reach the main points of interest without spending too much time outside, in case of very cold weather.

For smaller budgets, the Södermalm district may be a good alternative. We advise you to book in advance, as accommodation quickly fills up in high season.

Coup de coeur ♥

Hotel Birger Jarl: Noormalm district (the best area to sleep in, in our opinion): the hotel’s location is perfect for visiting central Stockholm on foot. In a beautiful, completely renovated building, our accommodation was spacious with a mini fridge and carefully decorated, excellent value for money where you’ll feel right at home. We would definitely go back. (with breakfast)

We spent 5 weeks in Sweden, so if you’re looking for ideas of things to see in Sweden, we’ve put together an article with around 20 must-see places in Sweden, some of which are completely unusual. Our map will help you find your way around.

We wish you an excellent trip to Stockholm – don’t miss the Skansen open-air museum (a small concentrate of Sweden) and a cruise on theStockholm archipelago!

Feel free to leave us a quick note or 5 stars below, to tell us if you’re planning this trip, to ask any questions you may have, here or on Instagram, we’ll get back to you with great pleasure.
