Stockholm is a green capital in many aspects - the city is filled with parks but has also been awarded the European Green Capital Award.
Not only can you both swim in and drink the water surrounding the inner-city (it might be an acquired taste though…), 98% of Swedish waste is recycled and reused as a form of energy. In other words, they take the garbage seriously. Same goes for the environment, don’t be too shocked if you see cyclists riding through snowstorms during the winter. There’s a reason why the Swedes have the expression: there is no such thing as bad clothing, only bad weather.
The tour takes you from the (some parts of the year) cherry-blossomed Kungsträdgården to the green lung of Stockholm, Djurgården, the former royal hunting grounds, dating back to the 1700’s.
In between, you will walk through the world’s first National City Park, Ekoparken. Located on the island of Skeppsholmen, they will also introduce you to Stockholm's archipelago and the two bodies of water that surround the city.
Soon enough, you will have realized what makes Stockholm a role model for other European cities. Time to go green on the Stockholm Green Capital tour!
