A central part of the Stockholm's skyline

Kaknästornet is a TV tower located at Gärdet in the Royal National City Park. The name Kaknäs comes from the medieval name for the south-eastern part of Stockholm, the area called Östermalm/Ladugårdsgärdet today.

The tower is a major hub of Swedish television, radio and satellite broadcasts. Kaknästornet was finished in 1967 and designed by architect Bengt Lindroos. The building is 155 metres high – or 170 metres with the top antenna included. Kaknästornet is one of the highest buildings in the Nordic countries.

Today the tower is owned by the National Swedish broadcasting company Teracom.

Please note! The tower used to be open to the public, with an information centre, gift shop, restaurant and café, but in 2018 it was permanently closed to the public.
