Sweden Vacation Rentals

From the sophisticated and stunning city of Stockholm to the medieval towns that harken back to the Viking Age, Sweden is a land of endless opportunities and unrestrained natural beauty. Whether you want to explore all that this Scandinavian jewel has to offer or simply journey around the popular Central region, a Sweden vacation rental is the perfect way to experience the wonders of this Nordic country.

Located at the mouth of Lake Mälaren and marking the beginning of the Stockholm archipelago, the capital city is overflowing with dramatic architecture that combines historical features with modern structures. Grand buildings such as the Drottningholm Palace and Riddarholm Church are surrounded by cobblestone squares, Renaissance structures, beautiful bridges, and glass and steel skyscrapers to create a stunning setting all the way to the Baltic Sea. Besides sightseeing, this magnificent city is also teeming with attractions that simply cannot be missed.

Guests of Stockholm vacation rentals who have an affinity for museums will certainly have their hands full with the many art, architecture, and history options. Some of the best to consider include the Museum of Architecture, the National Museum of Art, and the Museum of Medieval Stockholm. Walking through the Gamla Stan, or the Old Town, at night is perfect for soaking in the “city between the bridges,” while a stop by Skansen and the world’s oldest open-air museum offers a telling look at life in the countryside.

A region where the Sweden of old comes to life, Varmland is home to Lake Vänern, the third largest inland sea in Europe. While boating and fishing are popular on the waterfront, guests of Varmland vacation rentals can also enjoy hiking, skiing, and sightseeing in the rolling hill country and mountains of the area. Along the shore lies lovely Karlstad, where the Göta River and the Göta Canal flow freely and the smaller Lake Vättern offers picturesque views, and the surrounding area features a variety of quaint villages that rekindle the glory of the 16th century.

Although visitors will certainly want to explore many of the towns in Central Sweden, one that should be at the top of every itinerary and cannot be simply glossed over is Uppsala. Featuring the largest cathedral in Scandinavia, Uppsala Domkyrka, guests of Central Sweden vacation rentals can appreciate this stunning Gothic structure or simply soak in the atmosphere of this great university city. The Museum Gustavianum is another popular attraction that features the Augsburg Art Cabinet, archeological exhibitions, and an Anatomical Theatre.

The outdoor delights and historic architecture of this stunning country offer a well-rounded vacation for anyone who chooses to heed the call of Scandinavia. To experience a memorable getaway in a charming village, in bustling Stockholm, or any other town that appeals to your senses, book your Sweden vacation home rental today.
