How to get to Sweden?

How to get to Sweden? We found some great flight options with flights within Europe with KLM, one of our favorite airlines based in Amsterdam, with some pretty good return-flight deals starting from around €99 to Copenhagen (neighboring city of Malmö and Danish capital) and to Stockholm.

The Royal Dutch Airline KLM makes the direct connection possible via a daily flight from Amsterdam to both Stockholm and Copenhagen (DK) and vice versa. You fly with KLM in a comfortable plane directly to one of the most beautiful cities in Europe.

Gay-friendly Hotels in Southern Sweden

During our trips to Stockholm, we were able to stay in two different hotels: the Hotel HOBO and the Hotel Skeppsholmen. You can find our review videos here. Our Hotel in Malmö will be the Ohboy hotell, a bike hotel which we cannot wait to test for you! After Malmö Pride, Southern Sweden is waiting for us and our 5-days road trip. First accommodation on our five-day tour will be Grand Hôtel Mölle in Kullaberg. Our second hotel is located in Helsingborg called The Vault Hotel. After a longer trip through the southern part of Sweden’s Skåne, we will arrive at the east coast of Sweden stayting at the Karnelund Krog & Rum in Simrishamn. Last bu not least, our plan is to visit Kivik and to stay at the Kiviks Hotell. Knwoing about Sweden’s LGBTQ+ friendliness, we are excited to test the accommodations giving you a detailed feedback about their gay-friendliness. But of course, until then, you can check out some of the hotels and accommodation on the suggested websites below:

How LGBTQ+ & Gay-friendly is Sweden?

So gay-friendly is Sweden! Although this is, as usual, a very difficult question to answer. But following the LGBTQ+ rights by law and the common feedback from the local community in the Scandinavian country, Sweden can be considered to be one of the most LGBTQ+ and gay-friendly countries in the world. Already since 2009, Sweden legalized same-sex marriage countrywide making Sweden the 7th country in the world with marriage equality. Additional to that, the country has banned any kind of discrimination based on sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression since 1987. Good to know: Same sex couples can adopt children already since 2003, and lesbian couples have had equal access to IVF and assisted insemination since 2005. Furthermore, Sweden became the first country in the world to allow transgender people to legally change their sex, provided free hormone therapy, and an equal age of consent. Transgenderism was declassified as an illness in 2017. Sweden was ranked in the annual Gay Travel Index to be the top LGBTQ+ friendly country yet again. Our experiences in Stockholm have been unexceptionally posivite: Holding hands in public, giving each other a kiss or checking in a hotel asking for a double bedwe never faced any difficultiesand were thereby able to fully enjoy our trip to the Swedish capital city.
