Join a 3 hour guided walking tour in Stockholm's Gamla Stan: The Old Town. There will be a maximum of 8 people so it's always an intimate experience led by an expert local guide. 

Meet your guide at Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm. Stortorget is the central point from which runs Köpmangatan, the oldest street in Stockholm from the fourteenth century.

Gamla Stan with its unique character is one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm; we created this tour for well-traveled European enthusiasts interested not only in Stockholm's history but also want to know more of its modern setting. 

The narrow winding cobblestone streets, with their buildings in so many different shades of gold, give Gamla Stan its unique character. Even now cellar vaults and frescoes from the Middle Ages can be found behind the visible facades, and on snowy winter days, the district feels like something from a storybook.

During your three-hour guided walk, you'll see several beautiful churches and museums in Gamla Stan, including Stockholm Cathedral and the Nobel Museum. You'll learn about the Royal Palace, the largest of the attractions in the district, and one of the largest palaces in the world with over 600 rooms. The parade of soldiers and the daily changing of the guard is always a high note between our clients. 

We make sure that you do not miss the Riddarholmen Church; a royal burial church that was built as a Franciscan monastery for the so-called Grey Brother monks in the thirteenth century.

Along the way see the narrowest alley in Gamla Stan, only 90 centimeters wide at its narrowest point and discover restaurants, cafés, bars, and places to shop from your local guide. 

Enjoy amazing views of the skyline across the water to see the domineering City Hall on another island. End your Stockholm Old Town tour with notes of this historical city, rooted in its relationship with nature, but thriving and alive today.
