“Nice views of the city”
Reviewed 27 October 2013

For 50kr you can go to the lower observation deck, from there you can take the stairs to the upper observation deck, up here you get 360 degree views of the city, unfortunately the upper desk is surrounded by a cage so photo's will contain a ugly fence. There is also a cafe at the top but I didn't try the food.

I think if you are in Stockholm for more than just a few days, it's worth going to this tower and its observation deck. Preferably do it at the end of your trip, so you could be able to recognize the sights that you see from there. By the way, keep in mind that it's generally super-windy at that elevation, so dress up for colder conditions compared to the ground. Last but not least, sunset would be a good choice of visit time.

“Not a must see”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

I see this structure afar from the Skansen. It really is just a stick with an odd shape, but other than that, nothing too special about it.

“Great value activity in Stockholm with a killer view”
Reviewed 23 September 2013

Kaknästornet is really easy to get to. Just take the 69K bus which will drop you off at the door of the tower (we got on the bus at Djurgården Brygge but i think the route goes through centrum as well to Sergels Torg). It is a short bus ride - 10 minutes max,

The tower is great value at 50 SEK for 1 adult, which is cheap considering most museums in Stockholm are 100 to 150 SEK!

I would recommend visiting the tower on a clear day as you obviously get the best views of the city and surrounding area. You do not see as much of the archipelago as I thought - but the view facing away from town is still fantastic.

There is an inside viewing area with cafe and bar, a separate restaurant on the lower viewing deck, and an outside viewing deck on the upper floor. The outside area is caged off so you will need to put your camera through the grate to take the best shots.

I ate in the cafe: a sandwich and large glass of wine. Cost came to about 150 SEK (mainly because of the wine). The food was nice, made better by the view.

On a clear day, I would definitely recommend making the effort to go to the tower for an hour.
