Meet Stockholm on the silver screen

null

The Film Guide to Stockholm is a new subsite to visitstockholm for visiting movielovers and cineasts. Meet Stockholm on the silver screen, and walk in the footsteps of Ingmar Bergman, The Girl with the Dragon tattoo, Ingrid Bergman, Greta Garbo and more.

In conjunction with the Cannes Film Festival, the City of Stockholm is launching “the Film Guide to Stockholm” on the official tourist site: www.visitstockholm.com/film. The idea behind the new subsite is to meet the growing travel trend based on interest. The subsite is the first step towards a Fiction Tourism offer in the Stockholm region, for which Stieg Larsson’s Millennium Trilogy has already laid the groundwork.

“By visialising film on visitstockholm.com we are strengthening the link between the film and the destination. Visitors are no longer satisfied with just seeing a movie or television series, they want to experience the real settings,” says Roger Mogert, (S) Vice Mayor of Stockholm, Commissioner of the City Planning and Culture Division, and Chairman of Filmregion Stockholm-Mälardalen.

Stockholm Business Region, with its subsidiaries Stockholm Business Region Development and Stockholm Visitors Board,  is the official investment and tourism promotion agency for the Stockholm region.  Stockholm is one of Europe’s most dynamic sustainable regions. Stockholm Business Region is fully owned by the City of Stockholm. Our common brand is Stockholm – The Capital of Scandinavia.
