We visited twice in the late winter afternoon, after dark - fascinating. Many great idiosyncratic shops with fascinating (but expensive) crafts for sale, and a lot of interesting cafes and restaurants (but also some very tacky ones selling "Swedish" goods that are probably made in Asia. Narrow streets, interesting side streets, and never far from the water.

I went here on two occasions, walking round with my sister on a Sunday afternoon, it was really pretty and a good day out. The place is very quaint with cobbled streets. It actually only occupied us for about 2 and a half hours even with stopping for coffee and cake in a lovely cafe. It's a must do though... More

Even on a cold day in February the old winding streets of Gamla Stan made for a fun excursion. Six-year old son in tow, we walked from our hotel and all along the streets taking in the exteriors of the Kung's Palace, the Nobel Museum, the Parliament building and many others. The little coffee shops and boutiques are on the... More

Definitely one of Stockholm's must-see attractions. Try to steer clear of Stora Nygatan, the main street, during summer. It gets overcrowded and there are lots of great streets to explore elsewhere in the island.

While the modern and fashionable parts of Stockholm are all well and good for Scandi-chic and Ikea themed interiors, a trip to Stockholm would not be complete without a wander around the old town. We were staying in Kungsgarten which is more of a shopping area but the walk over the bridge to the old town is a pleasant one... More

Back lanes, alleys, small paths, cafes make it for oldtown. Nice chillout area and decents cafes everywhere (for those photo enthusiast). They have many sourvenirs store in the main alleys. But if you go to the small lanes, you'll find gold! Antique store, record store(WIN! so many records you dont want to leave the store), figures store (mainly selling DISNEY... More

This is worth doing at the end of the day. In the winter the free tour is at 4pm and takes about 90 minutes so you can squeeze it in before dinner (which is eaten earlier than you would expect). Great guide but dress up twice as warm as you think you need to be-its freezing. Ok so the old... More
