Have come here on a regular basis for years. Perfect location in the old town. Close to several pubs and restaurants. And very close to my new favourite restaurant Kagges next door. Excellent breakfast!

to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central

take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
