This pocket-sized guide to walking in and around Stockholm is designed for short-break walking holidays using public transport. Although all the walks described are easy, even "non-walkers" will want to stroll in and around the city, so will find the large-scale city plans, descriptions of the sights, and recommendations for things to do useful.
There are 8 walks in the city center and outskirts, another 3 in the forests and national parks, plus several other walk suggestions for which a map may be downloaded free on the web. All the walks are easily accessed by public transport. There are also three excursions to enjoy.
Whether walking or taking a day trip, the suggested restaurants in and around Stockholm will help users find the best local cuisine. For each restaurant there is a photograph of the décor and one of their dishes, plus sample menu, price guide, opening times, and a recipe for one of their specialties.
Other sections include: planning your trip, logistics on arrival, local markets and specialties, glossary of local food terms, and a restaurant mini-vocabulary. A special feature is the emphasis on natural local foods suitable for those with food intolerances. All recipes have been made by the authors and are known to "work."
11 walks; 3 excursions; large-scale city plans for the walks; area maps for the excursions. Free online update service with specific route change information on Sunflower Books' website, maintained daily.
