This is a haven! Even if you don't borrow any books. It's so nice to come here, read a paper and just get away from the buzz in Stockholm. Very beautiful building.

Nothing unusual here. The architecture is somewhat famous but, maybe because it was snowing, I didn't feel the need to do other than walk through.

Massive public library. Great to look around and check the great selection of books. Easy access close to Odenplan tube.

This is an actual library, not a tourist attraction, so be prepared to enjoy the space and admire the architecture, browse nice books and warm up.

This place shows up on TripAdvisor as a great place to visit as a tourist. My expectations were however not met. I'd recommend skipping this place for sure if you're just an out-of-town visitor. PS. I don't doubt (and cannot judge) its worth as a...More

I love this library so much that I even got married there! The atmosphere is magical, I love to just take few books and sit for hours and read. Great and helpful stuff and cozy coffeshop downstairs! Just a place to be alone!

If you’re in the area, you should stop by. Unique library with a nice view. Not a lot to actually do here, but if you like books and libraries- worth a peek!

We went to the city library to observe and admire its neat architectural design. Beautiful Swedish design.

Wonderful building. We visited briefly en route to the nearby Hard Rock Cafe and there was a performance on inside so we didn't stay long. The main round room is really atmospheric.

combination of a central location, tranquility, and
beautiful buildings – housing sophisticated bars and
eateries – that makes this neighborhood Stockholm’s
most sought-after place to live. If walking through
this area makes you feel like walking through a fairy
tale or picture book it’s no surprise, as it’s
