In less than a year since the SkyView opened, more than a hundred thousand people visited it, which an impressive number, knowing that the elevator can carry only 32 people at a time. The views from the top of the Globe over the whole city of Stockholm are magnificient.

The Ericsson Globe is located at the Globentorget 2. Globen T-bana subway and train station is just outside the main entrance.


Lots of people want to get on the top of the Globe, so better prepare yourself for waiting in a queue. Also, prepare about 130 SEK of money for the entrance.
