StockholmSubwaystoRy #95 – Brommaplan
Stockholm Subway with stoRy touRs
Hello everyone! We are back to our Stockholm Subway StoRy after a short break over the Easter time and we continue toady with Brommaplan. Let’s see what it has to offer!
Today’s station is located in the Bromma neighborhood, in the western part of the Swedish capital. Brommaplan is an important point in the area: where besides the subway station, there is an important bus hub and various stores.
Since 1944 there was the Ängbybanan tram service passing by here. But the subway station itself was opened in October 1952. Nowadays it severs the green lines: T17 and T19 in the subway system. Brommaplan is followed by Åkeshov westbound and Abrahamsberg eastbound.
Brommaplan subway station is an outside station with one large platform, two tracks along side it and only one entrance hall. The distance to Slussen, in central Stockholm, is of about 10 km. The artistic decorations here were made by both Berndt Helleberg (1969) and Peter Svedberg (1996).
This is the station that you should get off at if you want to see the wonderful Drottningholm Palace, the official residence for the King and Queen of Sweden. And also one of the Swedish entries on the UNESCO’s World Heritage list. The Palace is reachable by bus from here in about 10 minutes.
