I'm going to be in Sweden (Angelholm, and then Stockholm) from June 1-14 to visit my wife's family.

Any Swedish Whalers out there?

I was in Stockholm about three years ago for a week on business. I looked, and even took a boat-tour of the city and peered into marinas but only saw a couple. The downtown area is quite full of older, wooden fishing vessels that appear to have been converted to private use. They are very picturesque lined up along the mooring walls of the city.

I recommend staying at the Radisson SAS Strand Hotel, which puts you right downtown along the water near the museums/Castle and within walking distance to the old part of the city. (An absolute must-see and something that should be explored (only on foot). There is a great little road there which is so narrow at one point, you can stretch your arms and touch the buildings on either side. Talk about human traffic jams!)

There is an excellent restaurant, Grand Nacionale, that I highly recommend for great food and nice atmosphere. There is also an upscale club/modern / minimalist restaurant that I have a matchbook from, but can't remember the name offhand (and the batteries are dead on my palm pilot this afternoon!). I'll look that up for you.

Hey Buckda, Thanks for the info. We'll be staying at my sister-in-law's house in Stockholm. I've been there many times before, just looking for something to do with Whalers this trip if possible.

Next to Copenhagen, Stockholm is one of my favorite cities in Europe. I think the Stockholm archipelago has several thousand islands. I've fished for salmon right in the middle of the city, between the islands with the castle and the other with the parliament. Shallow river type water. Could see them but no bites. Amazing!

Should have read closer. My bad...and boy, am I jealous of you for having been out on that water in a private boat. I agree....Stockholm is one of my all-time favorite European cities as well. The scenery there is specatcular (both nature and the good looking young women in the clubs).
