Owner description: The Old Town, unsurprisingly, is the oldest part of Stockholm. It's certainly the tourist's go-to destination, but that doesn’t detract from its architectural and otherwise urban beauty.

to walk thru the old town in stockholm is to gain the experience of life in stockholm. with its cobblestones and quaint attractions it is a place to get lost in and explore.

"Gamla stan" or the old town is the oldest part of Stockholm with cute small streets and cooble stones. It is well worth a stroll for an hour or so but if you are looking for something less touristy I wouldn't recommend eating food here as most restaurants and cafes are slightly overpriced and not that great. There are of course exceptions but overall I would recommend for a walk starting by the castle and walking through gamla stan towards the "riksdag"

Great area to walk around just to sightsee- obviously a bit touristy but we had two good evening meals there and it was good fun just poking around what was a really manageable area

Stockholm is really beautiful and it's worth a visit, but beware! As my father and I left City Hall, we stopped by the bridge to take pictures. Three individuals pretending to be tourist stopped "to take pictures", as one of them opened my father's bag. I caught him getting his phone, yelled and beat off his hand, so we were lucky, but many aren't, so watch out all the time!!!

This is one of the nicest neighbourhoods in Europe; we strolled through it several times during our recent visit to Stockholm and it never lost its charm. There is one small area with tacky t-shirt shops, but other than that it is simply lovely, with nice restaurants and shops, as well as beautiful views around every corner.
