Where to Stay

While in Stockholm you can stay at Villa Dagmar, which is a 70-room hotel. It is the first sibling property of the ultra-luxe Hotel Diplomat. Its refined properties are evident in the brightly, light-filled interiors, jewel-toned velvet armchairs, and antique wallpapers.

Inside this food hall, you’ll find merchants, including Lisa Elmqvist, a fishmonger to the royal family, and artisanal cheese maker Arla Unika. You can enjoy your lunch at the Bageri Ingrid bakery that snakes down the block. You can get a steamy cup of split-pea soup, thick squares of fudgy apple cakes, and warm vanilla-and-cardamom burns. All these are served through a takeout window.
