This is an unique museum all about spirits.

With a focus on the Swedish people’s bittersweet relationship to alcohol, the museum exhibitions will take you on an unforgettable journey from pain to pleasure, from park bench to cocktail party, based on art, scenery, experience, scents, and tastes… Rarely has an afternoon soaked in alcohol yielded so many wise insights.

A good idea to explore Stockholm is from a boat, a kayak or canoe and enjoy the city  from the water.

This is an exciting experience and a great way to get some exercise too. Boats can be rented near the Djurgarden Bridge and the gentle waters of the SDjurgaden canal are ideal for  a boat trip.

Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is a newly-opened craft brewery with its own restaurant, situated by the shore in Hammarby Sjöstad in Stockholm. The brewery is a collaboration between Carlsberg Sweden, Brooklyn Brewery and free investors, but will not be making any Brooklyn beer. Instead, Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is a creator of small scale Swedish craft beer, with something to offer for both connoisseurs, beer enthusiasts, and curious amateurs. The restaurant serves food that has been adapted to both the season and what is currently on tap.

Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is situated in the historical Luma factory, facing Hammarby Lake with a view of southern Södermalm. The outdoor patio is open all summer on Wednesday-Sunday, with plenty of space for happy holiday makers and curious Stockholmers.

For visitors eager to learn more about beer and brewing, Nya Carnegiebryggeriet offers guided tours around the brewery on Saturdays and Sundays between 1pm and 4 pm. The tours are free and cannot be booked in advance.

The easiest way to access Nya Carnegiebryggeriet is by bus 22B to Luma, by free-of-charge ferry from Barnängsbryggan or with the boat M/S Emelie from Nybrokajen.

This is much more than a museum. It is a meeting place with tasting rooms, restaurant, bar and a shop. It also houses the Absolut Art Collection. www.spritmuseum.se
