"Excellent tour. Our guide was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. The tour took us to various corners of the Old Town which we would have been unlikely to find otherwise or to understand what we were seeing. Highly recommended." - pbarkley, TripAdvisor-user.
Dare to time travel to an age when lords and ladies rode their horses through the narrow, cobbled streets, shopkeepers shouted out the daily deals from their doorways and animals hopped from rooftop to rooftop (well, only in the beginning perhaps!). Entering into the Old Town is like stepping back in time and having the city’s living history unfold around you.
In our very personal opinion, the Old Town of Stockholm is the ideal place to start your visit to this beautiful capital, especially if you want to get to know the Swedes (we’re not only Vikings you know!) and a bit about the city's long, fascinating history. If you’re looking for a short and sweet introduction to the historical centre of Stockholm, this tour is the perfect walking tour for you.
We begin at the exceptionally photogenic main square, Stortorget, in the heart of the Old Town (trust us, get your cameras ready!). At the Royal Palace, we will give you insight into how a gym owner and a reality tv-star became real-life royalty. While sampling a piece of a traditional candy cane, you will experience the result of the Swedes’ creative innovation skills. A quick look at the statue of Saint George and the Dragon, followed by the narrowest alley in Stockholm and a walk between old noble palaces, you’re now an expert of Stockholm's Old Town.
We end our walking tour of the Old Town on the island of Riddarholmen (“The Island of Nobility”), known for stunning views of the lakeside of Stockholm and the oldest building in town, proudly watching over the island for centuries. Now your Stockholm Old Town Walk is complete - what a treat!
Please note: The majority of this tour takes place in areas where you will have to walk on cobblestones. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes.
