I really like going to live performances here. The sound is allright but the interior is really old and nice. It's a cozy arena.

Not a bad seat in the house and even on the warm day that we had, was still cool inside. Bar prices are a bit steep but then this is Stockholm

Went to see dress rehearsal of POTO - excellent. Theatre with good seating, sound and view (unless you are on wings or behind a small pillar). They have a crowded classic bar and a recently built modern one. Go there by tram or bus - limited parking. Plenty of toilets downstairs in modern part (where there a smaller stage as... More

I went to see a musical called Kristina från Duvemåla and I enjoyed the venue. They have a lot more toilets for women than most places and the food was excellent in the restaurant. Nice architecture and the big stage is a lot bigger than you might think. The only downside is that the seats, they are very hard to... More

We went here to see the new musical featuring e.g. Peter Jöback. The sound seems to be great from all the seats and the show itself was magnificent in this circus-like building. The place also houses a restaurant. The best way to get here if you are in Gamla Stan (Old City) is to take the boat that goes with... More

Beautiful Circus building with history and tradition. Nowadays used mostly for concerts and shows. Worth a visit! Conveniently located on Djurgården, which is probably on your to do list while in Stockholm.

For medium size concerts and certain shows this is a great venue. It is a Stockholm Classic but not outdated, and if you're passing it by as a tourist, it might be worth just to stick your head in.

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
