Things to do

Gay and Lesbian Stockholm

Sweden has a reputation for being open-minded and welcoming and every part of it is true for the Stockholm LGBT scene. A vibrant, fun and easily accessible city awaits everyone in Stockholm, no matter who you are. Come and join us!

Stockholm is often regarded as one of the world’s most beautiful and sophisticated cities but don’t get fooled by the look of it. Underneath the surface lies a bustling and inclusive LGBT scene. The highlight of the year is the Stockholm Pride Festival, when the city turns into one big party. Thousands of people migrate to Stockholm to take part in the festivities.

In general, Stockholm is a hotspot for entertainment and it is all very gay-friendly. Restaurants, bars and nightclubs – you will find them everywhere. Not to forget, Stockholm has a rich cultural heritage to explore as well as a contemporary side in terms of design and architecture. Also, there are plenty of things to do just a few miles outside of the city center, in the magnificent 30,000-island Stockholm archipelago. Stockholm definitely has something for everyone and welcomes everyone, no matter who you are!
