Did you know there is a coffee tram in Stockholm? The best way to experience the city either for locals or tourists — you can find The Djurgården Line during weekends from early April until mid-December, daily during July and August. They run trams different eras, this one is the famous Fikatåget from 1949.
I saw the tram a couple of times before during summer and always wondered who or where to catch it. Saturday I was celebrating my birthday and during a walk in Östermalm I saw the train stopped in front of Norrmalmstorg. A unique way to experience the traditional Swedish Fika, you pay only 35 sek adult/ 20 sek youth price. Hot drinks costs 25sek and pastries 30sek. You can also get a sandwich or ice cream, depends of your mood.
For many years, The Djurgården line has been a highly appreciated feature of Stockholm's transport. What is the background of this success? Probably a combination of a feeling for heritage, the sound and smell of riding the old trams, you do feel like going back in time while sitting and having a coffee.
The Djurgården Line was inaugurated on 1991. The line is 3,200 meters long and runs between Norrmalmstorg in central Stockholm and Waldemarsudde on Djurgården.
