Stockholm is the capital city of Sweden. It consists of 14 islands, which are connected by bridges, and the city is located on the Baltic Sea in Mälersee.
In the old town - called "Gamla stan" - medieval buildings and facilities still stand and can be admired today. With an Avis hire car, you can easily and conveniently explore Stockholm and experience everything it has to offer.
For your first stop, be sure to arrive close to the Royal Palace and visit Vasa Museum. Then take a break in one of the many cafes and take a "Fikapaus" (or coffee break), which is a Swedish tradition.
We have Avis locations in multiple areas in and around Stockholm to make life as easy as possible for you. We’re located in the central city area, at the airport and outside the city as well.
When you arrive at one of the three airports serving Stockholm - Arlanda, Bromma and Flugahen Nykoping / Stockholm Skavsta airport - you can go directly to one of our car rental offices and pick up your vehicle.
Your onward journey from the airport is easy with an Avis rental car and you can easily drive on to your destination.
You will find many shops in the fields of NK on Hamngatan, and the Åhléns city near Sergel Square is a popular shopping town. If you’d prefer to stay on an island with less water nearby, we recommend the trendy district of Södermalm which offers both vintage shops and art galleries. You’ll also find two of the best viewpoints in the whole of Stockholm at Fjällgatan and Monteliusvägen.
With your Avis rental car you can easily get away from the shopping streets and explore the island of Djurgården. Travel a bit further and you will discover the Grona Lund amusement park, Skansen, the Rosendal Castle to visit – and yes, The Winner Takes It All when you Take A Chance on visiting the ABBA Museum!
