The dry, hot Stockholm weather means there is currently a ban on using portable barbecues in the open air, putting a dampener on a staple of the Swedish summer. But fear not: there are some special spots where grilling is still permitted. We've picked out five of the best locations in the Swedish capital.

Edited to add: Please note that Stockholm on July 25th updated its fire ban to include ALL fires, including safe spots built by the council and private gardens. No barbecues are allowed due to the high risk of wildfires.

There are however some specially built locations where you can still enjoy a barbecue in the sunshine.
