Stockholm has a reputation for being one of the least car dependent cities in Europe, and the city centre is easy to get around using buses, underground trains, trams, and indeed better still, ferries.
Outside the city, there are plenty of options to explore by car, but the cost is prohibitive.
There also some great train routes, including on the Stockholm suburban network, which operate to some superb coastal or inland forested areas.
Do I need a car in Stockholm? Verdict – a car is certainly useful outside the city, but by no means needed.
