Whenever you are in Stockholm get to the waters edge. Whether it's skating in winter, swimming at the little beaches or sitting on the warm rocks with a picnic in Summer. The views around and across Mälaren are stunning!

We took a steamboat cruise on Lake Malaren. What a lovely way to see this lake. Just love the old buildings and boat life on the edge of the water.

Really scenic and beautiful, sometimes it is hard to tell if you are on the coast of the lake or the sea. You can see its scenery best by taking the boat trip to Drottningholm.

Its a great place to visit and spend a summer day with food and beer on the banks. A lake ride will do you good, and its quite cheap. See the City ...partly.... from the boat.

After touring the city it would be a nice idea to stop and take a look at the lake. Maybe grab a coffee and sit near by to watch the glass like or to think about what you've seen for the day.

I really enjoyed this trip into wild nature. A big, big lake, very peaceful, where you can just walk around or ride a bike. Perfect for kids. Relaxing and smooth.

This lake very easy to reach via hop on, hop off boats or serveral other water services. If arriving from downtown Stockholm have to go through a lock.

Malardrotningen Hotel /Yacht would be fun for kids, although cabins are small and you would need multiple cabins if you have more than two people in your party.
