Housing by international architects -  and frontrunner in climate initiatives

Sweden's Prime Minister Stefan Löfven has pledged that Sweden will be Europe’s most sustainable country. In Stockholm you will see how authorities and stakeholders in the construction industry have worked towards a more climate friendly environment or the last 10-12 years, from mobility to energy and waste solutions. A genuine housing boom has taken place in at least eight urban areas around the centre, with 6-8,000 people relocating to these districts each month. 

Examples of what you can see and learn about in Stockholm:


  • Urban development and residential building in the new areas, including Norra Djurgårdsstaden, an environmentally-friendly urban district with world-class credentials

  • Climate-friendly building: residential buildings manufactured from wood (including high-rise)

  • Flood protection and city planning: transformation of sluices from busy traffic hubs to recreational urban spaces

  • Infrastructure and mobility: Stockholm Central Station

  • Hammerby Sjöstad, from green roofs to rainwater harvesting

  • Residential building projects by international star architects such as BIG and OMA, meet the developer behind

  • Guided tours from leading Swedish architectural studios, for example Windgårdhs and VERA arkitekter


Number of days: 2-3 days 

Note: We also arrange trips to Stockholm by train, for example on the night train.


Stockholm can also be combined with 2 days in Helsinki, for example.

You sail from Stockholm in the evening and arrive in Helsinki early on the following morning.
