Stadsbiblioteket - Things To Do in Stockholm - LikeALocal Guide

Why locals love it?

Stockholms Stadsbibliotek is the largest public library in Sweden with more than half a million books in over 100 languages. Besides being a temple of literature and an inspiring place to work and study, it’s a pleasant inner city refuge when the Stockholm winds are biting.

Why you should visit it

Designed by celebrated Swedish architect Gunnar Asplund, Stadsbiblioteket is one of Stockholm’s most notable icons. Step inside to discover the real masterpiece – a stunning panorama of books spanning the cylindrical walls.

Special tip

While it’s unlikely you’ll have much reason to stick around (you have a city to conquer, after all), it’s still a sight to be seen.
