The Ericsson Globe is a Stockholm landmark and is technically the world’s largest spherical building.  Now you experience the globe in a new way by riding Skyview – two pods which travel to the top and back. The journey is over quite quickly, but the view is stunning.  Make sure you go on a clear day though to get the best out of your trip. This is an extract from our free Stockholm City Guide.

Skyview has been very popular since it was opened in 2010. In its first year it had 160,000 travellers and as such, booking ahead is recommended.  You can book tickets here but another option is to ride for free with the Stockholm Pass.
