Stockholm Archipelago II - Spring 2013

Day trip to Grinda

Safety first!

Stockholm Archipelago - Spring 2013

Hiking on Rindö and Värmdö

Skogskyrkogården - Spring 2013

Skogskyrkogården (Forest Cemetery) is an UNESCO World Heritage Site about 20minutes south of central Stockholm on the metro. 

Dogs on a leash are most welcome to walk around the grounds.  And Greta Garbo is buried here, too.


Stockholm in Spring

Yes, Spring.  Really.

On the grounds of Drottningholm Castle, there are two islands in a large pond that are off-leash areas.  The Castle can be reached by metro + bus or a boat in the summers from the city centre.

Malmö - February 2013

On the way home from Copenhagen, we stopped to see friend in Malmö, Sweden just over the Öresund Bridge.  

The northern part of Riberborgsstranden, centrally located and overlooking the bridge,  is off-leash for dogs, and there is a dog beach for the summer months, too.

Copenhagen - February 2013


Copenhagen is very dog-friendly.  Although a Nordic country, Denmark is more continental than Norway and Sweden and I found dogs were allowed in more places than at home in Sweden.

I googled 'dog-friendly Copenhagen' and found a few places that take dogs, including Sommersko og Cafe, Zoo Bar i Kronprisengade, Den Blå Hund, Optimist Cafe, Amalie
Cafe Retro on Knadbrøgade  - but we didn't visit these, so I can't vouch for them.

We did eat at Cafe Norden and Cafe Europa, both on Amargertorv. Both are lovely, and Cafe Norden is particuarly famous for their desserts. 

Plus, Nyhaven has outdoor seating year-round with heaters.
