Stockholm may not be on your radar when it comes to fine chocolatiers but that will change as soon as you get your hands on the melt-in-your-mouth delicious chocolate the city has to offer. Swedes love sweet stuff and this is reflected in plenty of great places offering everything from your run-of-the-mill milk chocolate to fantastical combinations that you never could have dreamed of.
With three locations in the city, Chokladfabriken (The Chocolate Factory) has made its mark with Stockholm’s chocolate-lovers. Serving everything from hot chocolate to chocolate cake to intricate small bites of chocolate, this spot is considered the go-to place by Stockholm’s chocolate connoisseurs.
Going strong since 1926, this high-end chocolatier is a family-owned enterprise where everything is made on premises. Many of the old recipes are still in production (including those that have attracted royalty for nearly 100 years) with exciting new flavours added into the mix.
Award-winning Handgjort (handmade) makes everything from sublime pralines to wedding cakes to desserts for the famed Nobel Dinner. This makes its slightly off-the-beaten-track location worth the trek.
If it’s ecological chocolate you’re looking for, Pralinhuset (Pralin House) is the place for you. With flavours like chilli, saffron, and wasabi in the mix, this place is where to go to discover the unusual. Owners Mieneke and Günter Bea also cater to those with allergies.
Pralinhuset. Drottninggatan 112, Stockholm, Sweden. +46 8 31 59 30
NK (Nordiska Kompaniet) is Stockholm’s premier department store and its in-house chocolatier is known for its signature mint chocolates as well as more than 70 other varieties, including lime and champagne.
Appointed the Royal House Warrant in chocolate, Ejes Choklad has been in operation since 1923. All the chocolate here is made on premises, with no preservatives or additives. The company takes pride in using only the finest ingredients.

We are proud that, for more than a decade, millions like you have trusted our award-winning recommendations by people who deeply understand what makes certain places and communities so special.
Increasingly we believe the world needs more meaningful, real-life connections between curious travellers keen to explore the world in a more responsible way.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day.
