business trip end of May

Hello,

I will be travelling to Stockholm next week (May 25 - June 1st), I am going to stay in Stockholm but will be working in Kista. This is my first time to Stockholm and was wondering if there were any big events happening during this time (I had a really hard time finding a hotel with rooms available)? Also, is there a Metro card I could buy or a multi-transport pass that I can buy for the 7 day trip to get around, I don't want to take a taxi everyday.

Thanks in advance for any feedback

29th of May is a public holiday in Sweden, many Swedes likes to make it in to a long weekend so maybe that's why hotels are booked out. Can't see that there any major trade fairs going on.

For public transportation the SL Access Card is good value for money, valid for metro, commuter trains, buses and boats/ferries:

7 days card is 300 SEK.

@remohame There will be a "heavy metal music festival" at Gärdet on May 30. Metallica, Slayer and some other bands will play. Looks like the site is in Swedish only.

Don't know how many people that will visit it, but they can take 50 000 visitors.

@MrTheTraveller: how on earth could I forget that! :-) That will for sure have an impact on the hotel situation, thanks for pointing it out.

Also the Stockholm marathon on the 31st will sure fill the hotels.
