Whether wandering the cobbled streets of Stockholm's "Old City" Gamla Stan, or hanging out in the hip southern island Södermalm, Sweden's capital has a lot to offer from fashion and design to unbeatable museums and excellent cuisine.

With the Scandinavian diet hailed as one of the healthiest in the world, there's naturally an abundance of healthy restaurants in Stockholm to choose from. So if you're heading to Stockholm this summer or planning your winter getaway, we've rounded up our favourites to add to your 'go-to' list.
