Description

Skeppsholmen is one of the 24,000 islets and skerries, the highest in the Stockholm Archipelago. The Bergrummet complex of the 18th century originally played a military function, and has now been converted into museums and cultural emporiums.The island is accessible by road bridge from mainland Stockholm and is also linked by foot bridges to neighboring islets. The week-long Stockholm Jazz Festival also takes place every July on the island, and for anyone in search of a break from the day, there is a floating youth hostel. The recreational amenities on Backwater Island include pubs, a spa and an upmarket hotel.
