Narrow alleys, iconic sites, and tales of a bygone era – trace in the footsteps of medieval Stockholm on our Stockholm Old Town Private Walking Tour! From the Royal Palace to Riddarholmen Church – history is in the air!
The story about the tour
Travel back in time to the days when Stockholm was what we today call “The Old Town.” Merchants selling goods from their shops or on squares, horse hooves clanking on the cobbled streets and the shouting of “Look up!” as the toilet contents came flying out the window (at least they warned you!). Stockholm’s Gamla stan, or the Old Town as it’s said in English, is filled, even today, with traces from medieval times and we want to give you an exclusive viewing of it all. On our private walking tour of Stockholm’s Old Town, we’ll trace in the footsteps of the original location of the city while hearing exciting stories of this postcard-perfect area of the city.
By Stockholm’s Royal Palace learn about the Swedish Royal Family and the former gym owner who became a prince. Around the corner awaits the main square, Stortorget, where tales of horrible (and bloody) times will be unveiled. Meandering your way from alleyway to square, we’ll pass the narrowest alley in Stockholm, the most famous statues and even taste some delicious hand-made candy (yum!).
Before we finish, we’ll visit a second island, Riddarholmen (The Island of Nobility) where noble palaces and one of the oldest buildings in Stockholm, the Riddarholmen Church, surround the square dedicated to the founder of the city. The island of Riddarholmen is one of our favourites offering an impeccable view of Stockholm’s lakeside waterfront. It’ll give you goosebumps or empty the remaining space on your camera! And there you have it, Stockholm’s Old Town, the perfect introduction to the city and an excellent start for continuing sightseeing on your own.
Please note: The majority of this tour takes place in areas where you will have to walk on cobblestones. We suggest wearing comfortable shoes.
