Join a TV audience

See how they make TV in the Swedish capital

If you’d like to do something that most tourists never even consider, much less do, why not see a TV show as it’s being taped?

The studio floor-manager will let you know when it’s time to applaud anyway. Ordinarily, it doesn’t cost anything to join the audience, but you do need a reservation.

Some programs may have an age limit, so ask when you call. Even if you choose not to join an audience, a visit to the TV4 studios’ restaurant might be fun. They have good food, prepared of course by TV cooks, and who knows? You may end up sitting next to a Swedish TV star reporter!
