Langholmen, Stockholm

4.3
#1 of 6 in Beaches in Stockholm
Favored by Stockholmers and visitors alike, Langholmen is a popular recreational spot that offers much needed respite from the big city bustle. In the past, this now lush retreat was rocky and barren and best known for its prison, which was turned into a popular hostel and museum in 1898--check in and you will find out what it is like to sleep in a prison cell. Several small sandy beaches provide opportunities for swimming and kayaking. The island is also home to one of the city's oldest shipyards and a small museum dedicated to Carl Michael Bellman, an important 18th-century Swedish musician and songwriter. Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Stockholm trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

  • Come to the Christmas market. Originally, it is an island with a prison, but it is very interesting to renovate the museum and the hotel at that time though it is dull.

  • Cosy part of Stockholm with channels and many fine old wooden boats. A caravan camping is also in close proximity to city, good. A large part of Långholmen consists of well preserved buildings of the prison, which today consists of the hostels. Much trails in the lush terrain where you can walk or bike, jog. Calm and cosy. There is also a prison museum and an Inn, as well as a bath. Is rental of kayaks.
