Bus Stop
“Modern Art Museum (Moderna Museet) collects, preserves, shares and exhibits modern and contemporary art. It opened in 1958, when modern art from the early 20th century and photography from 1840 and onwards was moved from the Nationalmuseum into a former navy drill hall on Skeppsholmen in Stockholm. The current building was completed in 1998, adjoining the old museum premises, and is designed by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Moderna Museet also opened in Malmö in 2009. Moderna Museet is one of Europe’s leading museums of modern and contemporary art. Our vision is to continue to work in the open and experimental spirit for which Moderna Museet has always been known. The presence of the art and the artists is our key concern, along with our dialogue with an actively participating audience. By developing this interaction, we build a Museum for the future.”

Cocktail Bar
“104 meters above the ground, at the top of Skrapan on Södermalm you will find Himlen. The restaurant has Stockholm’s best views as well as great food and drinks. The dining room is located on the 25th floor, with a slightly calmer atmosphere than the cocktail bar above. On the 26th floor you will find ”Grill & Cocktail”. In an urban, vibrant environment with Stockholm’s best view, you eat and drink well.”
