Stockholm Itinerary suggestions

I have 2 and half days in stockholm (but not continues days, as I am there for official workshop). So based on that I have prepared a itinerary to see around places in stockholm.

Request for comments and suggestions on the same. Also, for the below itinerary I am not going to buy Stockholm pass as it is not cost effective. Hope it is right?

Day 1 (06/09 Saturday) - Reaching stockholm Arlanda airport by 13:30hrs and guess will check in at hotel & settle down around evening 17:00hrs. Explore by WALK

1) Monteliusvägen
2) Explore Gamla Stan by night

Dinner (Veg) - Suggestions please? Budget place.

Day 2 (07/09 Sunday) - Full day dedicated to sightseeing. Explore by WALK

1) City Hall (110 SEK)
2) Royal Palace (FREE)

Lunch (Veg) - Suggestions please? Budget place.

3) Explore Gamla Stan (FREE)
4) Nobel Museum (120 SEK)
5) Katarina Viewing Platform (FREE)
6) Evert Taubes Terrass (FREE)

Dinner (Veg) - Suggestions please? Budget place.

Day 3 (10/09 Wednesday) - Start the trip from 11AM. Explore by public transport. Will buy 24 hour pass (125 SEK)

Lunch at Hermans (Dagens rätt)

1) Vasa Museum (130 SEK)
2) Skansen (125 SEK)
3) Explore Stockholm best subway stations - Kungsträdgården, Solna Centrum, and T-Centralen & few more if time permits. Will buy a 24 hour pass. How to buy 24 hours pass? Is there a cost effective to way to get it?

Dinner (Veg) - Suggestions please? Budget place.

Check that your planned visit to the Vasa does not coincide with a cruise ship arriving in port, because if it does there will be massive queues through the morning. Faced with lines around the building, I changed my plans and visited Skansen first then returned to Vasa after lunch and found it very quiet.

For your transport, you may want to get a SL Access card and load your 24 hr pass on it. Here is information on some of the locations where you can do this (including T-Centralen)
We bought ours at the airport and just loaded money on it (for us it was more cost effective). We added money as needed to our card at various locations (7-11, Nybroplan bus stop, etc.). It might make a difference where you are staying. In addition, I had the SL app on my phone and used it to purchase single tickets just before leaving the hotel, for our final ride to the train station - it was easy.

For budget food, we had breakfast included at our hotel and found plenty of places for an inexpensive sandwich (or cake) and coffee for lunch - max $10/each. Then we spent $30-$40 each for dinner, which included food and something to drink. So we could have spent less by skipping beer or wine.

We also really enjoyed Skansen and the Vasa and the Nordic Museums, which are all very close, but you won’t have time to visit them all on the same day.

hi nathan,

all the restaurants on my map are vegetarian or vegetarian friendly (it's for our upcoming family trip to stockholm, it's a hodge podge of places for kids, shops, museums, etc.).

i can't vouch for them as i haven't been yet, but all came recommended from one trusted source or another!

If you are walking Monteliusvägen, then you might want to go to Falafelbaren for dinner. There is not much seating but is a nice neighborhood park down the street if you can't get seating out front. This was directly across from my hotel and was excellent and reasonably priced. It's just a walk down the hill from the path a few blocks to Hornsgatan when near the opposite end from Slussen.

I really liked Skansen.
