We had taken the boat to and from the Drottningholmen. The journey was beautiful and the views excellent. In fact the ride itself is far better that the palace which we visited. But the 2 way journey was well worth it.

Lake Malaren is a vast lake in pristine condition. Every imaginable water based activity is available here. Best is the the availabilty of long slow boat trips. (fast boat trips are available too). Worst is the presence of mosquitoes in summertime; make sure you bring something to repel them!

We took a boat ride on Lake Malarian going to Drottningholm Palace (home to the Swedish Royal family). Approximately one hour boat ride each way. The scenery was lovely and we enjoyed looking at homes and some businesses that were along the shoreline. It was a lovely few hours & I recommend a boat ride on Lake Malaren.

We opted for a day in Mariefred; travelling there by train from Stockholm Centralstation to Laggesta, from where a short bus journey will deposit you in this delightful place. The town (more like an overgrown village really) has a wealth of appealing wooden houses; a properly dominant church; a restored narrow-gauge steam railway; plenty of eating and drinking spots, plus...

I stayed on a boat hotel on Lake Malaren. From the boat I could see the City Hall and Slussen. I was staying at Riddarholm which is the east end of Lake Malaren. Its a large and beautiful lake and worth a visit.

Visit and enjoy the beauty that is Lake Malaren. Near the historical part of Stockholm, take time out to relax and enjoy the views or take a boat trip. You will be impressed especially on a clear day.

Our hotel was on this lake. Right near by was an explanatory where you could see and watch all the boats go by and see many of the sights around.
