A medieval old town, salvaged 1600s warship, scenic ferry ride and skipping a museum line, what’s better?! Nothing! Our Stockholm Old Town & Vasa Museum Private Walking Tour is a guaranteed WOW experience coming right up!
The story about the tour
The must-sees of Stockholm, you ask? We’ll show them to you! It’s no secret that the Old Town and the Vasa Museum are two of the top attractions in Stockholm, but how you experience them is a little different! On our Stockholm’s Old Town & Vasa Museum Private Walking Tour, we check out the hidden gems of these city favourites all in one go.
We’ll start in the oldest part of Stockholm, the Old Town, where a city was founded once upon a time, 1252, to be exact. Follow your private guide through the narrow streets and over the cobblestone paths to discover the Royal Palace, the Stockholm Cathedral, and the main square Stortorget with its colourful buildings, frequently seen on Instagram. Once you’ve scouted all the must-see spots, jump on board one of the public ferries and let it take you across the harbour to the island of Djurgården. One of the most awe-striking attractions on this island is the Vasa Museum.
Arriving at the Vasa Museum, skip the line and enter directly inside to see the giant warship that has made it into history books – it will be no surprise why! With your guide, learn all about the most well-preserved ship in the world, the Vasa ship, including when she was built, why she sank and how she was salvaged. On this all-in-one walking tour, you will see Stockholm from the water – a sight for sore eyes – and visit not one but two islands in the inner city. We typically end this tour inside the Vasa Museum after a short guided tour, so you may continue to enjoy the many great exhibits on your own. After all, we recommend you stay on the island and visit neighbouring museums – you’ll be glad you did!
