Hello Goldstei,

Globen arena isn't very far from the city centre of Stockholm. Is has its own "t-bana" station, that's Stockholms underground train. From there you get directly to the city centre. If you're staying at that hotel at skeppargatan you'd take the T19 train (green line) direction Hässelby strand from Globen station to T-Centralen (the central station). At T-Centralen you'd change into the T 13 train (red line) direction Ropsten and get out at Karlaplan, which should be the closest station to your hotel. My hotel isn't too far from yours, so we'll probably meet :-)

Hi Goldstei, just saw your post. I will be in Stockholm for the concert. We will arrive on 8/7. My husband has the info about hotel location & getting to the venue. Let me know if you still need info on locations/hotels/etc., & I will see if he knows what you need, & get back to you. (I don't even remember the name of the hotel we are staying at!)

Would you like to meet up sometime before the concert?

Hi,

Thanks for the transport info. As one of the post-ees pointed out it's an easy trip using public transport as one line goes right near the venue.

I'd be up for a meetup, but I don't know the area at all. Is there someone willing to organize things who either knows the area or is willing to spend the time/trouble (I'm just trying to get to the plane on time!!).

Cheers,

Bob G.

Is anyone up for a meet-up in Stockholm after the concert?
Or maybe a meet-up before the concert? - For those of us who have to catch an early plane/train the next morning.

Hartmut, thank you for your effort; I know nothing about the area, but if there is some way I can help (by doing something online, etc.), please let me know. . .

Me neither ... :)

Thanks. - I simply plan to use Google Earth / Maps to find a restaurant in the inner city - somewhere near the subway stations T-Centralen, Hötorget, Radmansgatan, and Odenplan. These are only about 10 minutes away from the concert venue (station Globen, line 19).

Subway map: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Stock ... ro_map.png

Maybe someone with local knowledge can suggest a restaurant.

I haven't been dining in that particular neighbourhood of Stockholm before, so no guarantee but I found Restaurant Pelikan looked nice and not too expensive on their website (www.pelikan.se). Lots of wood and candles. And the famous swedish köttbullar (meatballs) on the menu. It's located "near" the underground station Skanstull, which is "ours" to go to Globen, but I guess it's a little walk of approx. 5-10 minutes? to this station. From there, the Globe statium is just 2 stops to go.

Directly located inside the Globe Stadium are several bars and restaraunts as well, so maybe this would be a possibility too?

Would be nice to meet you all before the concert :)

Looks quite good. Thanks.

Or what about Café 60? - Sveavägen 60, in the inner city, in the vicinity of the subway stations Radmansgatan and Hötorget that lead directly to the concert venue. - However, I also know this café only from its website (http://cafe60.se). (And yes, they also have köttbullars.)

Both the restaurant and the cafe seem to be okay for a meet-up in the afternoon before the concert.

Gee, wonderful, Hartmut, that's a good suggestion. I like Cafè 60 and would rather opt for that.
What does everyone else think??

My flight starts in a few hours so I'll talk to you again when I'm up there in the high North :-)

Maybe it's best if we used a time window, as we did in Salzburg. Let's say between 16 and 18 o'clock? - That way nobody needs to feel rushed during his/her sightseeing.

Of course, this only really works if we are at least a handful of people. Otherwise we would need more precise timings. - So: How many will be there?

Cafe 60 sounds good to me (of course, so would anything else, because what do I know?!)

You can count me & my husband in for whatever time everyone likes.
