a few things to do in Stockholm

stockholm guide
For all the other cities, I recommended the city passes, but I really would not for Stockholm – it’s a lot more expensive than anywhere else and also does not include public transport (you have to add and pay for that), and quiet a few museums/sihtseeing destinations are actually for free.

Sightseeing

Stockholm Almgreen

Almgreen


One of my favourite museums was definetly Stiftelsen KA Almgreen Sidenväveri & Museum, an old traditional weaving mill where they even show you how it was done and you can look at all the different devices and fabrics. So in case you enjoy handmade goods, that might be interesting for you.
Kungliga Slottet Stockholm

Kungliga Slottet


The Kungliga Slottet (royal castle) has a few different parts you can explore, from the treasury, to the reception rooms and a museum. Personally I think the recpetion rooms are most interesting and they also had a special exhibit on wedding dresses – I assume there is always a special exhibition worth checking out.
Royal Library Stockholm Bird

Lil’ bird at the royal library.


Public Library Stockholm

Public Library


The royal library and the public library are both worth having a look at for the architecture (from the outside and from the inside), the latter has a fantastic main round room that really looks like a dream library.
The Historiska Museum is free for everyone and as the name suggests all about history – and perfectly currated. It’s very innovative and yet has the feel of travelling back in time to it.
Stockholm Naturhistoriska Riksmuseum

Dino Babes

Another free museum is the Naturhistoriska Riksmuseet with all the bones, insects and animals.
Abba Museum Stockholm

ABBA Museum


The ABBA Museum on the other hand is rather experience, but it’s also quite an experience. Besides the interective part it also features a lot of costumes and information.
The way to Engelbrektskyrkan is quite beautiful, as is the area, it’s not that far from busy city life, but very calm. The church itself is quite pretty, however keep the opening hours in mind, it closes rather early.
You can also visit, well look at, that is, the of flat where Astrid Lindgren wrote her stories (Dalagatan 46), apparently only authorised people can look at the rooms, but I really hope they will open it for the public one day.

Cafés
If you’re looking for vegan snacks and lunch, Koloni is the place to go. They have a few cafés throughout the city and they both have a lovely atmosphere and great food.
Café Kladdkakan is very central and quite cosy. They also have a big selection of snacks, but I really enjoyed the kadammom bullar.

vaxholm café kaffehörnan stockholm sweden

Kaffehörnan


In Vaxholm Kaffehörnan & Annat Gott Vaxholm is very beautiful, I had a lovely chat with the owner about photography, Sweden and Munich and there was the cutest dog as well!

Shopping

Stockholm si fi nerd sf bokhandeln

SF Bokhandeln


Since I posted about retro shops in Scandinavia (and therefore Stockholm) already, I onlly actually have one shop left to mention, the amazing SF Bokhandeln, the Swedish Nerd/Geek Bookstore with all the merch you could want. I think they have more books and DVDs than the Malmö shop, but a little less merch. It’s a fantastic store with a great atmosphere.

Walks, Trips and Parks

Rosendals Stockholm

Rosendals


To get to Rosendals garden and castle (more like a villa tbh) you can, depending on your location, take the ferry or cross the bridge. The whole “island” is quite lovely to walk around and especially the gardens and the area around the castle are worth checking out.
vaxholm stockholm sweden

Vaxholm


Like in Oslo you can take a bus to a suburb and Vaxholm is probably one of the most famous ones. It ahs all those small chlicheé swedish houses and it really is very cute. It has both a cost and the loveliness of a small town, I’d highly recommend going there for an afternoon.
Stockholm Castle Drottingholm

Drottingholm

You can also spend half a day at Drottingholm, have a look at the beautiful castle and if it’s sunny (warm) enough just sit at the water and enjoy the sun and view. It’s so beautiful and calming. On of the guards there asked me where I got my bag, so I told her, when I came back she had found the website and was about to order one for herself.

That was everything I had about my journey in April. I really hope you enjoyed it and got something out of it.

a few things to do in Malmö

Malmö Guide
Malmö is the perfect city to discover by walking, for me personally it’s also the perfect size for a city (similar to Augsburg in a way). People are incredibly nice and in the first half hour alone two people randomly started talking to me (one about my Star Wars jacket which was quite fun and a girl from Sightsavers who called me a queen for travelling alone). My time was interrupted by rain, but Malmö is one of these cities beautiful no matter the weather.

Malmö Haven

Station AreaMalmö

Sightseeing

Malmöhus Malmö

Malmöhus


Snake Malmö Malmöhus

Snake


Malmöhus is the castle of Malmö (hence the name), but you can not only have a look at some royal reliquia, but it’s also a fantastic museum the top floors are reserved for art and historic objects, there also is a exhibit on the history of Malmö that is decorated with lots of historic items. It really is a great museum when it comes to making history interesting for everyone. They also have a selection of natural history pieces and living animals (which is somewhat weird, because they are stored in the basement, however they mainly have animals that enjoy the darkness).
St. Petri Church Malmö

St. Petri


St. Petri Church is really beautiful, very light and not to cluttered.
Another beautiful place is St. Gertrud where you can walk around in the yard, enjoy the lovely houses and disvover something new behind every corner.

Cafés

Café Bagaget Malmö

Café Bagaget


Café Bagaget is across the street from the hostel I stayed at (an amazing hostel!). The Café is colourful and cosy, everything they sell is made and served with love and the kanelbullar are delicious.
While I’m pretty sure Coffee Factory is a chain, the café in Malmö is so cute. The interior is filled with books and random chairs that do not really match.

Shopping
If you’re looking for vegetarian and vegan food I can highly recommend Astrid och Aprona. Not only does the store look adorable from the outside, it also offers a vast selection of vegan/vegetarian food and fruit.

SF Bokhandeln Tardis Malmö

SF Bokhandeln Tardis


SF Bokhandeln is nerd heaven. They have a few shops in Sweden and while I think Gothenburg (Göteburg) is the biggest, the one in Malmö is pretty big too and I think has a bigger selection than the one in Stockholm. And they have a tardis! Besides that they also have everything from books to funkos and merchandise.

Walks, Trips and Parks

Half-Timber House Malmö

Half-Timber House


It’s lovely to discover the city centre by walking around – you can look at all the 19th century houses, the half-timber houses, Lilla Torg and the townhall.
Gamla Graveyard Malmö

Gamla Graveyard


I’ve talked about graveyards before and Gamla Graveyard is a another beautiful one. It’s the old graveyard (gamla = old) and they do not bury people there anymore as far as I know, but instead there are a lot of flowers and even a small river.

Plidannsparken Pavillion

Plidannsparken


Plidannsparken is close to the opera and very large. I enjoyed walking around a lot and there are tons of people jogging and walking their dogs. It seems to be pretty popular among natives, too. The park is centered around a small lake and there is a round tower you can see from every place in the park. You should definitely check out Margaretenpavillion as well, it’s beautiful and there are lovely flower beds all around.

Have you been to Malmö yet? If so, what did you like most?

Kanelbullar & Cake | a bit of a Scandinavian food diary

scaninavian food diary
Yeah… food diaries. Personaly while I enjoy watching/reading about what people eat, but I’m pretty bad taking a picture of every single meal I have. Also, I mainly photograph food at cafés, so basically all of it is building a base for my diabetes. Nevertheless I wanted to share a few photos of kanelbullar, coffee and tarts.

Vintage and Retro shopping Guide for Scandinavia

Retro Shopping Guide Scandinavia
I love thrift and Vintage shopping, but it’s always a bit difficult to find a good shop in (an unknown) town, so I wanted to tell you about a few cool store I found on the way. However I found no shop at all in Copenhagen, so if you know good ones, please go ahead and let me know.
I have to mention that I discovered Vintage, even 20s-50s to be alot cheaper in Scandinavia than in Germany. And I’m not talking about saving 5-10 €, but Germany being about 5-10 times as expensive. In Stockholm I got a cupcake dream dress from the 50s for the converted price of 26 € for which I would have paid 200+ € here in Munich, I’m sure.

Amsterdam has a lot of Vintage shops, most of them are more focused on 80s/90s fashion however (and not on the cheap side either). So, for me personally, it’s more for accessoires. But: there are some reproduction shops, more expensive than second hand, but at least they sell some swing dresses. Nevertheless I want to share some shops I think have a great selection.

Juffrow Splinter Amsterdam

Juffrow Splinter


On Negen Straatjes you find quite a bit of old/kitchy/retro stuff, Juffrow Splinter has quite the selection when it comes to nic-nac and things you really don’t need.
The Fantasy Shop Chimera (Damstraat 7) has a lot of Asian stuff on the top floor and besides fairy and magical things a few repro dresses, e.g. Hell Bunny. It’s a very magical place and not only worth a visit due to the clothes, but due to the aura and decor.
Personally I considered the reproduction shop I ♥ Vintage (Prinsengracht 201) a bit too expensive for just getting something while travelling, but it is a beautiful shop with a small-ish, but very well-chosen selection.
Both Marbles Vintage (Staalstraat 30, Ferdinand Bolstraat 28, Haarlemmerdijk 64) and Bis Vintage (Sint Antoniesbreestraat 25-A) are your typical thrift shops. They have a lot to offer and even though most of it is random stuff from the 70s-2000s, you might find a 50s gem in between. Since all of them are rather central/close to sightseeing attractions, you can definetly check them out.
1953 Retro & Chic Amsterdam

1953 Retro & Chic


Now to a favourite of mine, even though I did not get anything: 1953 Retro & Chic (Staalstraat 2 – Instagram) is a beautiful store with things dating back to the Victorian time (and of course, the 50s, too). They sell quite a bit lingerie – of course, it’s not cheap, the quality seemed pretty high.
Laura Dols Amsterdam

Laura Dols


Finding a large shop in Amsterdam is always a surprise – they look small from the outside, but you can go up- and downstairs and towards the rear house at Laura Dols (Wolvenstraat 7 – Instagram). It’s a large Vintage shop with clothing from most eras and downstairs there’s a grand selection of “prom” dresses (fancy, evening, cocktail, bridesmaids, wedding dresses), but they also sell lots of accessoires (like my lovely beret).

Even though it’s smaller than Copenhagen, Malmö has more Vintage shops. Well, I did not find any in Copenhagen, so that was pretty easy. Still, Malmö has some very cute shops, most of them in the same era, so perfect for a Vintage trasure hunting afternoon.

Beyond Retro Malmö

Beyond Retro

Beyond Retro


Beyond Retro (8 Claesgatan – Instagram) has a big outlet in Malmö were prices are really okay. I got a dress for (converted) about 20€. The great thing is that the outlet offers a lot of stuff without being stuffed. There’s lots of space to get a good look at the clothes and besides vintage things they also offer amazing upcycled things.
Love Street Vintage Malmö

Love Street Vintage


Love Street Vintage (Kärleksgatan 5 – Instagram) is the opposite: it’s a very small shop, but so cute! It’s real Vintage, slightly dark and has that fancy aura good ols Vintage shops have.
Famous Ape Malmö

Famous Ape


If you want Reproduction and Vintage, Famous Ape (Davidshalsgatan 9 – Instagram) is the place for you. The lower floor is filled with Vintage dresses, novelty shorts, shoes and sports wear. The ground floor is very clean, hipstery repro, both floor have very selected pieces and both floors fit their content so well.
Liebling Malmö

Liebling


Liebling ( Davidshallstorg 8 – Instagram) sells mainly Reproduction, but the entire shop seems to be in the wrong decade. It has a very midcentury feel to it. To me personally it felt like I should have a Latte Macchiato and a Crossiant while browsing – very cosy!

Oslo‘s Grünerlokka is the Hipster and therefore Vintage/Repro area, it’s very cute and has quite a bit to offer. There are other shops too in different areas, but I can really recommend Oslo for Vintage shoppers.

Manillusion Oslo

Manillusion


Markveien in Grünerlokka is the place for Vintage shopping. There are both retro cafés and shops, like Manillusion (Markveien 38 – Instagram) – it’s not cheap, but they offer a lot of big and small retro brands and have a great selection. The shop also looks like what retro dreams are made of.
Frøken Dianas Salonger Oslo

Frøken Dianas Salonger


Frøken Dianas Salonger Oslo

Frøken Dianas Salonger (also slightly sad I did not get the blouse)


Walking down towards the Alkerselva you pass the fabulous Frøken Dianes Salonger (Markveien 56 – Instagram), probably one of the most beautifully designed shops, it has this very real Vintage flair to it. They offer both Vintage (so many blouses!) and repro, everything with a femme fatale/diva vibe to it. The staff is very friendly and the shop is worth a visit for the interior design alone.
UFF Oslo

UFF


UFF Oslo

UFF


UFF (Karl Johans gate 5 – Instagram) has two shops in Oslo, but I liked the one on Karl Johans Gate better than the one even closer to Central Station (however they are only 5-10 minutes apart). The shops are both on the cheaper side and more like thrift stores. However, the things they sell date back far into the last century and the conditions of the pieces are pretty good as well.

Stockholm has a great selection of Vintage stores. Most of them are pretty small, but with a surprisingly good selection, even dating back to the 20s.

Old Touch Stockholm

Old Touch


Old Touch Stockholm

Old Touch


Old Touch (Upplandsgatan 43 – Instagram) is a fantastic Vintage store, that really deserves the name Vintage store, they main focus is on 20s-50s clothing in light colours. It’s a dream (or lots of dreams) in pink, white and yellow – including beautiful lingerie and prom dresses. The prices are really low and the staff is so friendly (but attention! Opposed to most shops in Scandinavia they only accept cash). There are at least three more Vintage shops in the street/very near by, so definetly have a look at the beauty that is Old Touch.
The brand Daisy Dapper (Katarina Bangata 33 – Instagram) might be known to those of you who enjoy reproduction dresses, but they also sell Hell Bunny, Collectif and other brands. Daisy Dapper also offers quite the range of brooches (erstwilder!), tights, accessoires and home decor.
Engströms Trikåaffär (Scheelegatan 5) is not really a Vintage/Repro shop, but the interior is amazing, the shop offers a lot of stuff (socks, lingerie etc). It’s more than 100 years old and they still sell their things via the counter, not on hanging rails.

I just love the way you can browse in Vintage/Retro shops and they do not have the fast fashion “just buy” feel H&M and Co have (want to write about that topic soon as well).
I hope I could help you a little or provide an insight in the shops I checked out. What is your favoutire shop in Sweden, Norwegen, Denmark or the Netherlands?

what I got in Scandinavia

scandinavia finds haul what i got
AS you know I travelled almost all of April, I was home for only about three/four days, so now a lot of the upcoming content will be from those travels through Scandinavia (+ the Netherlands). However it might take some time to go through the pictures and edit them. The easiest is showing you my shopping finds. I did not get a lot of things for me and some of them were needed (adapter, gloves…) or wanted for some time, so here goes…

Amsterdam Finds
Amsterdam I wanted to get into E.A. Poe by reading the Penguin Little Black Classic Tell Tale Heart, which I found at Waterstones, and I hope to follow up with something more than just short stories, because for me it had a certain appeal, but I wasn’t that much into it. However I am very much into my Laura Dols Beret, it is so very lovely and now I want to wear berets every day and in every colour imaginable. I was planning to visit the Nintje shop and there I got the Miffy Plush and Pin, because I think both things are just so cute. Of course, the Plush wears a Netherland themed dress and the brushes remind me of the popularity of painters in Amsterdam. Especially since there are adorable Miffy postcards, were the little bunny looks at beautiful paintings. Tony’s Chocolonely was sort of an impulse buy, I got some for my grandpa and later on found out they fight against slavery in Chocolate production. Also, my landlord in Amsterdam let me try some of the Salted Caramel Seasalt chocolate which was delicious. The packaging reminds me a lot of Willy Wonka’s chocolate, too.

Haarlem Finds
Haarlem On the day in Haarlem I got myself a few postcards (see below, as well as he postcards I got in Amsterdam), a book about the Teylers Museum and a small collection of fossils. However, I will write about the museum and it’s perks very soon.

Amsterdam Postcards

Copenhagen Finds
Copenhagen If there is a Disney store, I have to visit it at least once and even though most European Disney stores are very focused on kids. I saw the cutest little Pumba Tsum Tsum, I am actully looking for an Ewok Tsum, but I only found this cutie. Since it was pretty cold, I got myself a scarf on sale. It’s very soft and warm, really a good purchase. Another thing that was inevitable was a charger I got at Photografica. I took the wrong charger for my camera with me, so I had to get something to charge it and that was the thing I got, luckily it can also charge phones and basically everything you could charge. At the Glypotothek I got a new uni pin fine line pen because mine was out of ink and a postcard with a painting by Dahl. At the museum of Natural History I found a cute Ammonit. As a last little thing at the Disney store I got a fantastic Alice cup. The girl at the store was wonderfully friendly and we talked about dresses and cosplay and everything.

Malmö Dress
Malmö One of the first things I did in Malmö was visit Beyond Retro’s Outlet which had a fantastic selection and I got this gingham dress with a sailor collar. I guess it’s a 70s/80s does 40s with the collar and the fabric, especially since it does not have any stains etc and the seams are finished with an overlocker.

Oslo Finds
Oslo Going to Natural History Museums is one of my favourite things to do and there I found a dinosaur coin which is one of the cutest things ever. Then, once more I got something I had to buy, because of the cold: gloves, adorable gloves. At Holmenkollen I saw the Norway patch and thought to myself did you not want to decorate your suitcase with patches? Well, I only got one in Norway, but it’s really cute.

Oslo Dress
At UFF, a second hand store I found this Sandy nightgown (that’s what I call it, because it reminds me a lot of Grease and Doris Day). I assume it’s late 60s/early 70s, the fabric is very high quality and the cut is rather chaste. Well, it is adorable and I want to have all the sleepovers now.

Oslo Postcards

Stokholm Finds
Stockholm If you have been to Stockholm and are somewhat of a nerd, you know about SF Bokhandeln where I found Shakespeare’s Star Wars, a book I heard about just a couple of weeks before and was very interested to read. And it was fantastic, so I want to read all six books now. At Drottingholm I found a crown pin of which some of the earnings go to kids in need. The Erstwilder beehive brooch was on my mind for quite some time, it’s part of the Junebugs & Erstwilder collab and since I love both the Junebugs and bees I really wanted to get the brooch anyway. I was very happy to find it at Daisy Dapper, because the collection was rather hard to get online (and I was too lazy to order online). I also got socks at Engström, a small but full shop in the city and I considered those socks very very cute. Lastly I got a pin of this Swedish horse to put on my denim jacket. It’s just so lovely in colour and design, I had to get it.

Stockholm Dress
One of my best pieces was this Old Touch 50s dress, which did not even cost 30 € (converted from Swedish krona). It looks like a pink prom cupcake dream and when I first tried it on it was a too small, however I went back to the shop and bought it anyway the next day, discovering later on it had seams that were added by a later owner (as were the straps, I think) and without a bra it fits well enough. There is a little rip in the back (they told me in store), but it’s easy to fix and I really look forward to wearing it.

Souvenirs
Lastly I wanted to give you an overview over the things I got for friends and family, I found beautiful little goodies in every city, not only tourist-y stuff, but also in Vintage/Second Hand Shops.

I was really surprised to find Vintage Dress for very little money, as midcentury pieces are barely affordable in Germany. So, I am incredibly happy about finding Vintage goodies at a good price.

what’s in my carry on bag

what's in my travel bag
I try to pack very lightly, so some of the things that I carry around when I’m at home stayed here. Nevertheless, I’m overly cautious, so I overpack no matter what. These are the thing I carry around with me when having a stroll through the Scandinavian cities – on the train/plane/bus I will have my 3Ds and a deo with me, for sure. Sunglasses depend on the day, but I am not your avarage sunglass person (meaning, I just wear sunglasses sporadically and it has almost nothing to do with the weather – same goes from umbrellas to be honest).

what's in my travel bag

what's in my travel bag

Calendar & Pen I always carry around a calendar, just to note down both appointments and if things come to mind in general. My bullet journal usually stays at home and just the things for the particular day are written down, because I usually just use the bullet journal for planning ahead.

Snack While I tend not to have a bottle of water on me and rather go to a café or only have the bottle on particular days, I almost always have a snack with me – be it those fantastic vegan gummi bears (I try to eat mainly vegan on this trip) or chocolate. Not only for when I’m a bit hungry, but also when I get dizzy.

Phone & Headphones That one is quite obvious, even though I am not always on my phone, I sometimes need some music when I get a bit anxious because there are so many people – also when I get lost I want my phone to tell me where to go (you don’t always meet people you can communicate with, people at all, or people you are comfortable with).

Power Bank This one ties in with the last one and especially goes with the finding the way home. Here in Munich I usually only charge my phone every two days, but I really don’t want to be stranded somewhere without the possiblity to communicate with people at home/find the way to the flat/hostel.

Hand Sanitizer I like to have my hands clean and while I do not always use hand sanitizer at home sometimes I do and if am strolling around all day, I guess I want to have clean hands even when I can’t wash them at the moment.

Tissues Sticky fingers, cleaning things, cold…

Comb On of my main pet peeves comes to show when my fringe is out of order. I really, really dislike the hair being messy, so when I feel like my fringe is weird, I have to comb and fix it.

Purse That one s pretty obvious of course, I have my money on hand, probably my debit card and id – sure, when I am on the way to the airport/station I will have my passport and credit card with me.

Guidebook When I am in a city I have never been to, I want to have a map on me and a guide to tell me where I could go next and what I want to visit in general. That goes for shopping especially, because finding museums/sights is pretty easy compared to finding that little shop.

Kindle When I am on the train or in a café I like to pick up a good book and preferably enjoy the sun, a cup of coffee and a the story. It took the kindle with me, because it’s a lot lighter than any book and I cannot afford to carry around hundreds of books neither in my bag nor luggage. However I’m pretty sure I will buy a book or two in the cties I visit.

Camera & Remote Release Probably the most important thing when visiting a new city is a camera and if I want to take a few outfit shots, I will have the remote on me.

Cosmetic Stuff I have my little Star Wars Bag with me in which I carry around the things below.

what's in my travel bag

Sewing Kit & Bobbypin I have this kit with me all the time and when I’m travelling with friends they always need something from the kit. Though when I travel on my own, I have the feeling that this might come in handy no matter what. Also, a bobbypin when my hair is really unruly is usually kept within the kit.

Powder Puff Even though I decided no to take my beautiful powder box with me, I took the puff with me, if stil removes access oil and does a good job.

Tampons Pretty obvious as well, no matter if I need tham, you want to be on the safe side – or help someone else out.

Lipstick As a person who always wears lipstick, that particular lipstick is always with me and even though most of lipsticks tend to stay on my lips during the whole day, I want to have it with me.

Handcream When my best friend gave me this small tube, I was really happy, because it is sooo handy. I do not want to carry around a big tube of hand cream just to use it once a day, so I have this one on me and refill it at home.

Perfume While I do not always wear perfume, sometimes I just want to smell nice and this one is my all time favourite.

Glitter This has been in my bag forever, because why not?

What do you carry around with you on city trips?
