Hall of Fame – “Welcome to my home town” Stockholm Arlanda Airport

 

 

 

 

 

Welcome to Stockholm! 100 billboard pictures of famous faces greet you when arriving at Arlanda Airport; ABBA, Bjorn Borg, The King & Queen of Sweden, Greta Garbo etc. Maybe a good idea for other International Airports  or  Central Train Stations?

 

“The Stockholm Hall of Fame was established in 2005 as part of an effort to make Stockholm Arlanda Airport more welcoming. Stockholm Arlanda is the gateway to Stockholm and Sweden and therefore the first impression many of the approximately six million travellers from abroad, who land here annually, get of our country. By letting celebrities, future stars and everyday heroes from the Stockholm Region wish them welcome, foreign visitors get a positive beginning to their stay in the city, and returning Swedes hopefully feel just a little bit proud of their capital city.

Here, the Royal Family and the first Swedish astronaut in space hang side by side with the guy from the Valhalla grill.” [Swedavia Swedish Airports]
