Best Places to Visit in Sweden

Swedish West Coast
Sweden’s west coast stretches from Gothenburg up to the border with Norway. Along the coast feast on some of the world’s best seafood, spot seals from a kayak, have a floating sauna and soak in a seaweed bath at a spa.
Explore the city of Gothenburg on your visit to West Sweden. Gothenburg’s attractions, cultural sights and museums are within walking distance of each other and most are paired with excellent restaurants and cafés.
Sweden’s first marine national park and a great place for a family holiday with all its above and below water activities. The park encompasses some 390 square kilometres of unique island and marine environment, including the car-free Koster islands.
Fjällbacka is a small fishing village in Tanum municipality, northern Bohuslän. The place takes its name from the large mountain called Fjället, which overlooks the village. The old part of the village with its picturesque archipelago buildings lies at the foot of the mountain by the sea, while the more recently built part is located in the fields further inland. Fjällbacka archipelago lies just off the coast, and far out to the west are Väderöarna.

Skåne
Hiking in Skåne, the southernmost part of Sweden, attracts seasoned trekkers and amateur hikers from all over the world. Pack your bag, lace up your boots and trek the Scandinavian wilderness with its old virgin forests, rocky coastlines and pastoral landscapes. Walk the coastal sections for dramatic contrasts between rocky shores, sandy beaches and the open sea, or hike the hillsides of mid-Skåne with lush green beech forests, fascinating rock formations and abundant flora and fauna. If you want that sense of remote seclusion, the lakes in north-east Skåne are surrounded by deep virgin forests and historic sites. 
Gallery of Moderna Museet Malmö
Sweden has a new modern art museum: on Boxing Day, Stockholm’s Moderna Museet opened their second branch, housed in the old Rooseum building in Malmö, (which, before it was converted, was a derelict power station). Ostensibly inspired by the Tate model, the new venue – complete with a turbine hall and signature font – currently offers a selection from the permanent collection in Stockholm as well as two temporary exhibitions: Luc Tuymans and Astrid Svangren.

The gallery also has a school room or children’s room that seems to have been well used. The main exhibition space, in a former turbine hall at an upper level, was busy despite it being a morning mid week and as I left a large party of what I took to be recent immigrants to Sweden of lots of different ages and countries of origin arrived with a teacher presumably as part of their induction course into the language and life of the city. As I say, the gallery has a really good and really strong community feel.

The architecture is good too. Clever and sophisticated. The main space is a large open top-lit hall – the guide book says the ceiling height is 11 metres – so there would seem to be a lot of options about what can be shown and how. The hall is on an upper level running parallel to the street and across the street frontage is a two-storey range which includes offices, services and so on along the ground level and a second, narrower, exhibition space with a lower ceiling height on the first floor.
