Spending Money 3 day trip

Heading to Stockholm at the end of September. Will be there for 3 full days. Flights and accommodation already paid for. Just need an idea on how much people would recommend taking for spending money. Planning a fairly chilled time. Maybe a few sights, but mainly need money for food and drink. Also, how easy is it to withdraw money in ATMs when there...or should I take money with me?

Thanks in advance!

ATM's work fine, just bring a small amount of cash. Credit cards are very widely used. As for costs: a lunch in the city would be ca 100 SEK, fast food maybe 50-60, coffee ca 30 and dinner from ca 200 for one course incl beer. In a not too fancy place that is. Beer in a pub starts at ca 35 in simple places, ca 65 in nice joints.

So incl a little for small items and extra it would come to ca 500-700 a day. A very rough idea.

Also make sure you have a 4 digit pin for debit/credit cards. Also you may be asked for ID when making purchases on stores over a certain value.

Hope this helps.
