Choose your desired departure time, and meet your guide in Stortorget, the main square of Stockholm Old Town (Gamla Stan) to start your private walking tour.
Founded in the 13th century, the Old Town consists of cobbled streets and squares lined with brightly painted 17th- and 18th-century town houses, churches, and monuments.
Wander around Stortorget, and stop at the Nobel Museum, an institution dedicated to the world’s most prestigious prize. Hear about the prize’s founder, Alfred Nobel, the Swedish scientist who invented dynamite and bequeathed his fortune to fund the award.
Then, delve into the surrounding streets to see more landmarks. Swing by the 18th-century, baroque-style Royal Palace, the official home of Sweden’s king, and stride along Mårten Trotzig Gränd, Stockholm’s narrowest alleyway.
Continue around other famous sights, listening as your guide reveals anecdotes about their history and secrets. Hear how a French noble rose to become Sweden’s king, how a commoner became Stockholm’s executioner, and how the city was once mistaken for a rural village.
Lastly, stroll around the pretty lanes of Riddarholmen island, admiring the beautiful views from here over Lake Malaren, Sweden’s third-biggest lake.
Your 90-minute tour concludes in the Old Town when your guide departs.
