From stately apartment buildings built to look like mini palaces to the Royal Palace itself, we hit the many royal hotspots of the city during our Royal Stockholm Private Bike Tour. Paddle to metal; there’s a lot to see!
The story about the tour
Biking through the city on our Royal Stockholm Private Bike Tour, we’ll check out all things royal in Stockholm. There’s more than just The Royal Palace! Get ready for hours of palaces, priests and pomp.
Zooming through the city centre, we’ll pass the grand stages of the Royal Opera and the Royal Dramatic Theatre, where we find another kind of Swedish royalty… ever heard of the Skarsgård family? From Vikings to Thor to Tarzan, the Skarsgårds are taking over the performing arts scene. Need we say more? Arriving on the island of Djurgården, royalty awaits at the Vasa Museum. Commissioned by probably the most famous warrior king of Swedish history, the Vasa warship sank on her maiden voyage. How far did she get? About 1.3 km, sinking only 120 metres from shore.
Back to the bikes, and we’re off again, down the boulevard Strandvägen, lined with buildings that look like mini palaces themselves. What does this bring us to? The Old Town and The Royal Palace, of course! The former home of the Royal Family, now everyday office invites you to her splendid halls with many tales to tell, ranging from fires to royal bedside ruling and warrior kings to fancy state dinners. You’re sure to be entertained!
After our visit, we continue around the corner to the second oldest building in the city, the Stockholm Cathedral. A place of weddings, coronations and exquisite art, we pop our heads inside to say hello to the statue of St. George and the Dragon. Since we’re on a bike, we’ll zoom over the cobbles to the island of Riddarholmen or The Island of Nobility. Greeted by the stunning Riddarholmen Church, the final resting ground of many royals, our tour draws toward a close as we pedal our way across bridges back to our last royal stop and end of the tour. We’re back on the island of Kungsholmen… The King’s Island! Hours of biking through Royal Stockholm could not have gone any quicker.
