Valkommen till Stockholm!
That means “Welcome to Stockholm”, and we’re sure you’re already glad you came. With a city centre that sprawls across islands and more than 30 percent of its area made up of waterways, a trip to the “Venice of the North” is one you’ll always remember. From structures straight out of a period film to a meticulously restored shipwreck, this city is always reminding you of its historic (and aquatic) ties.
But rest easy, landlubbers. You don’t need to rely on water taxis to get around (though you can)—one of Wotif’s Stockholm car hire deals will do the trick.
This city has been around for a while, and it has the architecture to prove it. Park your Stockholm car rental in Old Town and get around on your own two feet. Visit the Riddarholmskyrkan, built in the 13th century as a monastery. It’s big, it’s beautiful and it’s the final resting place of several famous Swedish kings. Remember when Sweden was a military superpower? Neither do we, but these guys do.
After getting medieval for a while, head about 5km east to the Vasa Museum. This massive building was constructed around the restored wreck of the Swedish warship Vasa, which capsized on its maiden voyage in 1624. She’s been partially re-rigged and is pretty darn impressive, if we do say so ourselves.
Just because you booked car hire in Stockholm doesn’t mean you have to stay there. Road trips don’t get much more epic than the 550km drive southwest to Helsingborg, which sits on the edge of the Oresund Strait. Wave across the water to Denmark, then visit the 14th-century Karnan tower.
Wotif is your one-stop shop for the Stockholm holidays dreams are made of. We’ll get you the best airfares and hotels at the lowest prices, so you’ve got more cash left over to spend on the fun stuff. And hey, why not tell your boss you need an extra week? Book Berlin hotels through Wotif and beat feet for Germany. There’s a beer stein there with your name on it!
