Guidebook Updates for Sweden

When we learn of critical changes to the information in our guidebooks on Sweden, we post them here. (Of course, it’s still smart to reconfirm critical transportation and sightseeing details locally.) Armed with a Rick Steves guidebook and these late-breaking updates, you’re set for a great trip!


  • Söderportsgården is no longer renting rooms, although its popular Söderportcafé music café is still operating.



  • The city’s tourist information office is now located across the street from the main train station (at Kungsgatan 59).
  • The Hemköp grocery store is no longer located in the Åhléns department store; it’s now at Dragarbruunsgatan 50 (between the train station and Stora Torget).


  • The House of Emigrants no longer offers genealogical research services, but some of their databases are available to the public (the museum and its exhibits, however, are still open).
