Address: Stockholm

Walking tour in English. History, Customs, Culture & Architecture. The Old Town Walk serves up history, explanations of Swedish customs and culture, as well as beautiful architecture, all in the wonderful setting of the Old Town.

“A thing you have to do in Stockholm”- Tobias, Switzerland
In just 1.5 hours you will learn among other things: how many rooms the Royal
Palace has, what the statue of Saint George and the Dragon really means to Swedes, why the Old Town is bigger today than when it was first founded, where the narrowest alley in the Old Town is, and, what the Swedes used to put in their beer. In the summertime we continue out to the island of Riddarholmen for stunning views of the lake side of the city.
In short: With our stories, legends and humor, we make the Old Town come alive.
Point of interest during the Old Town walk:
Stortorget, the Royal Palace, the Cathedral, boy looking at the moon, the narrowest street in Stockholm, Riddarholmen.
