Unique large lake that literally butts up to the Baltic Sea, with Copenhagen intertwined with innumerable bridges. A really beautiful view on a beautiful day. But- in the ( long) winter it’s frozen and all off the pleasure motor craft and sailboats have to be...More

This is a lovely lake in Stockholm which is huge but well worth seeing. There is a lot going on with boat trips from both sides available without booking if you don't need to set off at a given time. Well worth visiting.

Its great way to enjoy the archipelago especially if you have Stockholm pass (its free), it is on the way to Drottningholm Palace so if you are going there then you will pass the lake

The boat ride from the Baltic sea side of Stockholm to the Lake Malaren is exciting. The travel through the lock where the water level drops is exciting.

They say that this water is so clean you can drink it but I would not drink water from any lake this close to a city. Nevertheless this is a beautiful lake and very calm waters.

This place is lovely. I visited it from Västerås (which is an equally nice place to visit from Stockholm in a day). It would be perfect to have a boat and sail around. There’s loads to see. Beautiful lake to spend a warm, sunny day.

Great place to unwind in the afternoon when all you want a quiet place to sit and relax. Nice park beside the freeway at Gamla Stan.

Malardrotningen Hotel /Yacht would be fun for kids, although cabins are small and you would need multiple cabins if you have more than two people in your party.
