GAMLA ORANGERIET STOCKHOLM
I have a thing for glass houses. Villa Augustus in Dordrecht, Babylonstoren in Cape Town, Gamla Orangeriet in Stockholm: all places with a super good vibe. Gamla Orangeriet was on my wish list for some time already, but since it’s located somewhat outside of the center I didn’t make it last time. I took the bus from the center to the North of Stockholm, close to the University (but you can also go with a bike, or even better by car). From there it’s a short walk to the botanical garden which is a stunning place to visit. You’ll see fruit (apple trees), vegetables (artichokes are so beautiful), flowers (sunflowers were in full bloom and lotuses in the pond) and plants. There’s a lake and two botanical gardens inside a green house.
And then there’s Gamla Orangeriet: a cafe in a glass house with a large terrace with a view over the garden. An unique place. It’s open from 11am in the morning and it stays open for lunch and drinks later on, but it closes for dinner because then it’s a popular location for events and weddings. You can order the food inside and I’ve tried one of their delicious sandwiches with gravad lax. It was actually quite a hard decision because the cakes were looking really good as well: they told me to go for the cheesecake next time. The juices are home made too and are a good refreshing drink during hot summer days.
Gamla Orangeriet is a great place to go to. If you’re with your girl/boyfriend, your family or even with your children. Everyone will love it!
