The story about the tour
Can you imagine a cultural theme park revolving around the theme of Sweden? Where turning the corner leads you to a farm in the north of Sweden, past a rune stone and Market Square, and another turn of a corner leads you to a manor from central Sweden. A couple paces further and you’ve arrived at a large amphitheatre with a fantastic view of the harbour. It is crowded? It must be Tuesday! See the merry Swedes in their natural habitat – the habitat of loving to sing at Sing-a-long at this outdoor venue that is! Now you have the perfect idea of Skansen!
Hear stories from the past to the present as we introduce you to Artur Hazelieus, founder extraordinaire of this beautifully unique park and museum. Not only that, but he also founded The Nordic Museum located around the corner, the queen bee of the impressive architecture we drove past to get onto and off the island. Wondering what that street is with all the grand palace-like buildings was? That’s Strandvägen – Stockholm’s most exclusive address.
In additional to stretching our legs walking around Skansen, we’ll take you around town showing you the highlights of the Swedish capital. Known for her 14 islands and 57 bridges, Stockholm is nothing short of picturesque, and we’ll make sure you see it all (and snap some photos too!). The Diplomat Town, Royal Dramatic Theatre, the King’s Garden, Stockholm City Hall and Parliament – we’ll be able to see a lot in a short amount of time.
Your private driver and guide will make sure that you’re well looked after, getting you well acquainted with the city centre. Hopefully, after 4 hours together, you’ll love Stockholm just as much as we do!
Please note: There is about 1 km walking distance inside the museum.
