Smoking in Sweden

Smoking in Swedish bars and restaurants has been banned since 2005. A new outdoor smoking ban in certain public places, including playgrounds and train station platforms, has taken effect since July 2019. The new ban, includes e-cigarettes.

According to “Tobaksr√∂kning, daglig” Smoking in Sweden is at a very low prevalence; only 11% of the total Swedish population (8% of men and 10% of women) smoked daily in 2016. Around another 10% smoke occasionally.

According to the new law, the goal is to make the Scandinavian country smoke-free by 2025.

Fishing rules in Sweden

Swedish citizens may fish without a licence in public waters. Foreign citizens may fish without a licence in those waters as long as they use hand gear.

The basic rules of the Right of Public Access always apply: show consideration, don’t disturb, and don’t destroy.

Fishing is prohibited within 100 meters of stationary fishing gear, including fish farms. Fishing with nets, trolling (with or without motor), tip-up fishing and the like are not permitted without a license.

Sport fishing without a licence is allowed in certain private waters along the coasts and in Sweden‚Äôs five largest lakes‚ÄĒthe V√§nern, the V√§ttern, the M√§laren, the Hj√§lmaren and the Storsj√∂n (in J√§mtland).

The Swedish coastlines, rivers and its largest lakes, such as Vänern and Vättern, boast excellent salmon and trout fishing. Just as the waters in downtown Stockholm which are teeming with premium salmon and sea trout.

Swedens alcohol policy

Processed with VSCO with hb2 preset

In most Swedish municipalities (Kommuner) it is strictly forbidden to drink any alcohol in public. Getting caught could lead to a fine of 500 SEK (ca. 50 Euro). But in many cases the police confiscates your drink and simply pours it out.

Sweden is pretty strict when it comes to accessing alcohol. One has to be at the legal age of 18 to be allowed drinking any alcohol. Buying beer or wine in a restaurant, pub or night club in Sweden one has to be 18, too; same if you want buy a low percentage beer/cider (<3.5%) in a supermarket.

Shopping at Systembolaget often leads to the cashier requesting to see your ID to verify your age ‚Äď unless you look older than, say, thirty. The cashiers have to check everyones‚Äô ID if they believe that a customer could possibly be age 20 or lower. So, yes, if you‚Äôre older than that and you get asked to show your ID, you may take it as a compliment ūüėé

Systembolaget is a government owned chain of alcohol stores in Sweden. It is the ONLY retail store allowed to sell alcoholic beverages that contain more than 3.5% alcohol. The main motive is to minimize alcohol-related problems by selling alcohol in a responsible way, without any profit motive.

Darf man in Schweden Alkohol trinken?

Schweden ist sehr streng, wenn es um den Zugang zu Alkohol geht. Man muss 18 Jahre alt sein, um Alkohol trinken zu d√ľrfen. Um in einem Restaurant, Pub oder Nachtclub in Schweden Bier oder Wein zu kaufen, muss man ebenfalls 18 Jahre alt sein. Gleiches gilt, wenn Sie in Superm√§rkten nur einen geringen Prozentsatz Bier / Apfelwein (<3,5%) kaufen m√∂chten.

Wenn Sie im Systembolaget (staatliches Gesch√§ft f√ľr alkoholische Getr√§nke) einkaufen gehen, verlangt die Kassiererin in der Regel einen Blick auf Ihren Personalausweis, um Ihr Alter zu √ľberpr√ľfen – es sei denn, Sie sehen √§lter aus als beispielsweise drei√üig. Die Kassierer m√ľssen den Personalausweis aller Personen √ľberpr√ľfen, wenn sie der Meinung sind, dass ein Kunde m√∂glicherweise 20 Jahre oder j√ľnger sein k√∂nnte. Wenn Sie √§lter als 20 sind und aufgefordert werden, Ihren Ausweis vorzuzeigen, k√∂nnen Sie dies als Kompliment betrachten ūüėČ

In den meisten schwedischen Gemeinden ist es verboten, in der √Ėffentlichkeit Alkohol zu trinken. Wenn Sie dabei erwischt werden, m√ľssen Sie eine Geldstrafe von 500 SEK (ca. 50 Euro) zahlen. Aber in vielen F√§llen beschlagnahmt die Polizei einfach das Getr√§nk und sch√ľttet es aus.

Alkohol am Steuer? Wer mehr als 0,2 Promille im Blut hat muss mit saftigen Strafen rechnen. Ab 0,3 Promille wird der F√ľhrerschein direkt von der Polizei f√ľr zwei bis zw√∂lf Monate eingezogen.

Stockholm Hotel Guide: Grand Hotel Saltsjöbaden

Today I am introducing to you the Grand Hotel Saltjöbaden, located in the beautiful Archipelago, just a 30 minute trainride from downtown Stockholm.

The hotel dates back to the late nineteenth century when the Wallenberg family had the hotel built with the idea of a Swedish Riviera. Since then the hotel has been visited by royalty and movie stars alike, as well as guests enjoying their holidays and attending conferences.

We had the honour to stay in the Frank Sinatra Suite. On 10 May 1953 Frank Sinatra and Ava Gardner checked in to this suite, which was later named after the famous musician. A spacious 100 square metres, spread over three floors, with magnificent views of the harbour and the archipelago gave us an unforgettable experience.
The first floor offers generous natural light from the large windows. With both a lounge suite and dining area, it is perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The second floor has a walk-in closet and spacious bathroom with private jacuzzi. The bedroom on the top floor of the suite features a fabulous view of the marina.

The grand Spa at offers you a peaceful experience in a calm environment. You can take a swim in the 15-metre pool, perfect for a workout. After your swim, you can relax in the jacuzzi and you will find a steam and dry sauna.

The restaurant is perfect for summer dining out on the terrace.

In total I would say the Grand Hotel Saltjöbaden is the Top Hotel of the Archipelago and one of the best in Stockholm.

√Ėffentliche Verkehrsmittel in Stockholm

√Ėffentliche Verkehrsmittel in Stockholm oder SL, ist f√ľr Busse, U-Bahnen, Nahverkehrsz√ľge, Stra√üenbahnen und bestimmte F√§hren im Gro√üraum Stockholm verantwortlich. Die U-Bahn ist der einfachste Weg, in der Stadt herumzukommen. Tickets k√∂nnen in SL-Centern, an U-Bahn-Kassen, an Zeitungskiosken, per SMS oder √ľber die SL-App erworben werden. In Stockholm ist es nicht m√∂glich, Tickets in den Bussen bar zu bezahlen. Wenn man w√§hrend einer Kontrolle (welche sehr selten sind) kein g√ľltiges Ticket vorzeigen kann, wird eine Strafgeb√ľhr von 1200 SEK f√§llig. Ein Einzelfahrschein ist 75 Minuten g√ľltig und kostet 44 SEK (31 SEK, wenn Sie stattdessen eine Prepaid-SL-Karte verwenden). Es ist auch m√∂glich, 24-Stunden-, 72-Stunden- und 30-Tage-Tickets zu kaufen. Ein Elternteil mit einem Kinderwagen kann im Bus kostenlos fahren.¬†

Die Stockholmer ihre U-Bahn Stationen auch die längste Galerie der Welt. daher mein Tipp eine 24 Stunden Karte kaufen, die U-Bahn Kunst betrachten und mit der Fähre die Inseln erkunden.

Nofo Hotel: Södermalm

The hotel is build in a courtyard style where the bar is located in the middle. The rooms all have unique designs and interior. I stayed in the Brooklyn room, which had a hip and modern design to it. There can be a parallel drawn between Brooklyn and Södermalm which is where the hotel is located at. Both locations are associated with hipster, artistry and cool vibe, which is the overwhelming feeling I got. I stayed for one night during summer and it was cosy. I had a great time discovering the area and taking long walks. Since Södermalm is one of my favourite places in Stockholm, the NOFO Hotel has a great location and you can walk to (Gamla Stan) in 15 minutes). For the price and location you get a pretty good deal.

Grand Hotel: creme de la creme

If you’re ever seen those videos of celebrities being hunted by photographers and adoring fans, as they make their escape into a fancy hotel. The grand hotel makes you feel like you are that special person, its quite remarkable how fancy interior, brick and mudd can change your outlook on yourself and what’s possible. There is a privacy policy in place at the hotel, which means you can’t take pictures or videos in public areas through out the hotel. There is an overflow of luxury that breaths through the hotel, from the minute you walk in, to when you lie your head down at night smelling of Bottega Veneta. It’s pretty challenging to pick one feature that I liked the most, since there is so much to rave about but I have to say the spa area was spectacular and this hotel is nothing short of the creme de la creme of hotels.
