Gondolen is a suspended structure dating back to 1935! 11 floors up with incredible views - a must visit in Stockholm.

A Sßdermalm classic, this one a gourmet French restaurant in a setting that will stun the most jaded of locals. Suspended beneath a pedestrian overpass above the channel that divides Sßdermalm from the island of Gamla Stan, the structure dates back to 1935, and the 1940s interior attests to that. But when you’re whisked up about 11 floors and your view is of the open seas, gorgeous Lake Malar and downtown Stockholm twinkling in the winter night, you are right at home. The main restaurant is pricey, the more modest “Kitchen” cheaper, but order a whiskey sour at the glass-walled bar, soak up the view and you won’t mind what you pay for your meal.
