Kaknästornet

Viewpoint in Östermalm & Ladugårdsgärdet

A handy landmark for navigating this part of town, the 155m-tall Kaknästornet is the automatic operations centre for radio and TV broadcasting in Sweden. Opened in 1967, it’s among the tallest buildings in Scandinavia. There’s a small visitor centre (mainly a gift shop) on the ground floor and an elevator up to the observation deck, restaurant and cafe near the top, from where there are stellar views of the city and archipelago.
