The city is beautiful, don't get me wrong, but travelling around the waterways you cant help but think Amsterdam and Copenhagen are still the kings of the canal cities.

This is a must do for the visitor and gives the scale of Stockholm from the water. The boat tours leave hourly from near the Grand Hotel. The boat tour is very informative and you get to see the city from another perspective. The audio guide is in many languages or if you just want to chill out you can... More

I don't think canals is the right word to call it. Amsterdam's ones are canals. Venice's ones are canals. Stockholm's one seems more like a river that pass across the city. I'm sorry but I didn't feel it so special :-/

With the colourful buildings, canals and boats in harbour, Stockholm is a lovely city to wander around for a few days. At least one boat trip is a must!

The canals are fantastic and gives Stockholm a real nice touch. They are surrounding the islands Stockholm are built upon so you cannot miss them.

A great well priced way to visit the islands that make up Stockholm. An ideal way to find out more about the culture and people of this beautiful city.

The other best way to enjoy Stockholm is to have boat trip to see canals around Stockholm. I fell in love with this city when I do this boat trip after having previous 2 days enjoying the city itself by walking. We took boat tour from the end of Strombon Bridge (in front of the Royal Palace that facing the... More

Really enjoyed this trip. It goes past some of the nice waterfront and then along the park which is quite a contrast. It gives you a very good idea of which places you wold like to visit. I recommend it.

We took the Grand Canal boat cruise. It is a 50 minute ride that allows you to see sites of Stockholm that you could not see from a water vantage point.
