The Swedes are a businesslike bunch by and large but in a city as varied as Stockholm you can find many romantic things to do if you look. Get above it all with a ride on the Katarinahissen. Once at the top you'll enjoy a magnificent view of the city. The Hallwylska Museum is a private palace with an extensive collection of fine art and antiques donated to the Swedish state in 1920. Hellasgarden is a park not far from central Stockholm where you can walk the paths that run along the marsh and lakes or through a leafy birch forest and over open fields. If you're interested in exploring the city's lovely waterways, take one of the various cruises organized by Stromma. Cedergrenska Tornet was built over 100 years ago and its garden has trees from all over the world. It's perfect for a lovely walk with a beautiful view. Or invent your own itinerary of romantic things to do amid the charming neighborhoods of Stockholm.
