Stockholm skating fun for all the family
First up, the Independent tells me, is the Kungstradgarden ice rink, which has been in operation since 1962. If you've got your own skates, then great as use of the enclosure is free of charge but to hire a pair costs Skr40 (£3.40) for an hour, which isn't particularly expensive so either way, you're in luck!
If, however, organised skating isn't your bag and you'd much rather take your chances with nature, then if the weather's being kind, the chances of the waterways freezing over are pretty good. Imagine how magical it would be to skate around on a frozen pond, rather than a big block of manmade ice? I'm seriously considering booking my ticket to Stockholm right this very second.
And once you're done with all the skating, it's possible that you might be very cold and in need of something hot and tasty to eat and drink. Luckily, Stockholm has a plethora of cafes to visit and website Stockholm Town lists just a few. According to the web page, Saturnus is one of the best places to go and is a favourite for those looking to buy big lattes and cinnamon roles.
