Summer is here, Stockholm offers countless possibilities for a nice walk along the water. But how about walking along a canal in the green? Here is a suggestion that takes about 30 minutes to walk: Djurgårdsbrunnskanalen is - as you could guess - a canal on the island of Djurgården. You can for take bus number 69 from the city center, get out at station Djurgårdsbrunn and then either cross the bridge and walk along Prins Carls väg or stay on the same side and walk along Prins Bertils väg. Both ways will take you along the beautiful canal, surrounded by trees. It is very calm and seems far away from the city. If you walk on Prins Carls väg, you can chose to continue straight ahead or go to the right after a while and walk the beautiful Kärleksstig. If you walk along Prins Bertils väg, cross the bridge Lilla Sjötullsbron and continue on the left on Prins Carls väg which takes you to the far right end of the island of Djurgården. You can even see the island of Fjärderholmarna. Take a coffee in the garden of Café Blockhusporten and enjoy the view (and sometimes even the cruiseships passing by). You can then either take the bus number 69 at Blockhusudden (right in front of the café) back to the city center or continue the road along the water to walk back to the city center. It takes about one hour to Gröna Lund. Or my favourite way of getting back to the city: Take the SL-boat of the line 80 (included in the SL-public transport-ticket) that leaves from the station Blockhusudden about every 30 minutes and brings you back to Allmänna Gränd (where you find the museums and Gröna Lund) or Nybroplan.
And if you ask yourself if you can also take a boat and drive through this canal: Yes, try the Music Tour of Sightseeing Ride!
Let me know how you liked the walk!
