Indie Movie Theater
“This little cinema (BIO RIO) in Hornstull (40 min walk or 2 stops away with the tube) is my favourite cinema in the city. They will show the independent movies as well as the blockbusters. The cinema is old and very beautiful, if you want you can eat your dinner and drink a glass of wine while watching the movie (this you have to pre book). This place is perfect to come to for a drink while watching the sunset over the water, before you watch your movie (or just come for the drink, the dinner you should eat somewhere else though).”

Store
“Without a doubt the BEST ice cream in town. What just looks like a hole in the wall is Stockholms best home-made-ice -cream-place. No seating but located just by the water on the Island of Kungsholmen, so you can grab your icecream and have a seat on one of the piers. Expect a line, but it is worth the while!”
