We are excited that StockholmLGBT invited us back to Gay Stockholm in the near future and shared with us some exciting gay travel news about Stockholm. For us, Stockholm really is one of the best LGBTQ+ and gay vacation destinations not only in Europe but worldwide. Even though we won’t go back to Stockholm this summer, but instead, will be exploring the World Pride co-hosting city of Malmö, we wanna share Stockholm Gay Travel News in our “Ode to Joy, to Stockholm”. Definitely some great reasons to go back to Sweden!
Gay-owned Karnelund Krog & Rum – our gay couple hotel and restaurant review. Close your eyes and imagine yourself on a Swedish farm with apple trees full of juice apples surrounded by a wide golden cornfield. That is how we can describe the Scania landscape and that’s where we spent our last night. But not just somewhere. We stayed in a gay couple owned and operated farm hotel with southern Swedish charm and welcoming atmosphere. Gay couple Janne and Peter converted the historic cottage and buildings into a quaint hotel and restaurant.
Kivik’s gay Cake Cowboy. The third stop on our 5-days road trip around South Sweden was Kivik, a locality in Österlen, the southeastern part of Scania (Skåne). This picturesque village with its small harbor is simply perfect to take long walks, enjoy some of the cider the region is famous for and enjoy some freshly caught seafood by sunset. But Kivik is even more. It is home to a very special person of the LGBTQ+ community who has his own story of pride, acceptance and gay life to tell. Yes, we are talking about the Cake Cowboy Markus Lundqvist, a gay chocolatier who settled down in Kivik and opened up his shop. The gay-owned so-called Chocolate Saloon & Grocery offers delicious sweets and pastries as well as everything you need for daily life including rainbow flags, pins, and stickers.
SWEDEN: The Scandinavian country Sweden is a dream destination for us. Why? Well, it offers everything we need for a perfect vacation from beautiful nature, stunning views to a broad variety of organic and locally sourced cuisine. We got super excited about the offer to join forces with the National Tourism Board of Skåne, also known as Scania, to show you the gay-friendly side of Southern Sweden. And by writing that, we are most definitely not exaggerating.
