Stockholm’s Subway Art - Private Walking Tour

The Stockholm subway system is one of a kind! Of 100 stations, 94 have been decorated by local and international artists. On our Stockholm’s Subway Art Private Walking Tour, we go underground searching for subterranean masterpieces.

The story about the tour

Are you looking for Stockholm’s best-hidden treasure? Look no further; we know of just the thing! How about the art that lies beneath Stockholm’s streets and makes the world’s longest art exhibition? Imagine one hundred stations, each with original artwork on the platform, walls, or waiting halls. Ok, let’s get it right – not all of it is underground. On our Stockholm’s Subway Art Private Walking Tour, we’ll have a closer look at the subway system of Stockholm and why it’s one of a kind.

Kungsträdgården, Central Station, Fridhemsplan, Odenplan.. the stations are many and impressive. We’ll make several stops to admire the extensive collection of styles and art forms and celebrate the skilful craftspeople who stand behind the decorations.

It is said that pictures convey a thousand words. Does that mean that art conveys millions? By travelling from stop to stop and artwork to artwork, we’ll not only show you the beautiful art hidden in plain sight, but we’ll also mix it up with stories of the many aspects of Swedish society and culture, often serving as the inspiration for the artwork.

Having explored stations and decorations, we end the tour back in the city centre feeling amazed by what we have seen – murals, tilework, mosaics, sculptures and more. When something has been completed by more than 150 different artists – can it be anything other than unique?
