Stockholm from the Inside out

My best friend is coming on Friday and she'll be here for 10 days. What should we see/do that's non-obvious? Already got things like a boat trip in the archipelago, the Vasa Museum, the view of the Old Town and Södermalm from City Hall on the list, but would appreciate any suggestions for out-of-the-way things to see and do.

Blow up the German embassy! Do Stockholm like it's 1975.

There's a very nice café on Fjällgatan with a beautiful view of the water, the Finland ferries and Djurgården.

Hmm... how about "Systembolaget" at Regeringsgatan (or any other large one)? A store for alcoholic beverages only, and the inability to buy them anywhere else, made an australian colleague of mine fashinated enugh to declare it a tourist attraction.

Evening picnic at Långholmen (Or skinnaviksparken) for super sunset views (+ possibility of bathing at Långoholmen)

I would take her on a boat trip to Fjäderholmarna. Have some dinner at the restaurant, sit and watch the sun set from the cliffs, maybe take a bath.

Glasshuset at Medborgeplatsen for 3 scoops, then 1/2-1 hour people watching from the steps or a nearby bench at Medborgeplatsen.

Also good for rainy days (or as in my case old grandmothers who don't walk far) - take one of those sightseeing busses. Plus the parliament has free guided tours in English and is more interesting than I thought it would be.

Skokloster Castle! I's a bit of a trip but absolutely worth it. A castle frozen in time since the owner died in the late 1700, contains the worlds largest collection of muskets..

Not to forget the Gold Room at the Historiska Museet( a really good collection of Viking gold among other things)

Afternoon/evening route: Begin at the boat café by Djurgårdsbron, walk beside Galärparken and the jettys on your way to Vasa museum, view Stockholm from any high Gröna Lund attraction, take the ferry to Slussen, have a beer at Debaser and take the the Katarina elevator up to Södra Teatern and Mosebacketerassen to get the late views and mingle with people there, or later on at Medborgarplatsen.
