We booked "Christmas Old Town Walking Tour" for Saturday 02/01/16. Lydie, our guide, was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable and made the tour really interesting, fun and enjoyable. We learned a lot for the history and traditions of the city. A couple of surprises during the tour added fun to the overall experience. Highly recommend it to future visitors.

Staying in Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen

Neighborhood Profile
Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting: take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest) alleys, which will make you feel like you’ve travelled back in time. This neighborhood offers a great combination of historical buildings and traditional Swedish restaurants.
