Walking Tour of Stockholm Old Town

Walking Tour of Stockholm Old Town

Join us on our Old Town Tour to enjoy the beautiful island of Gamlastan and understand why the Vikings chose this island to create their next capital. Our tour is designed chronologically so you can experience history just like the city did. We will start from the Viking Era, the German influence in the country and the Danish clash which led to the most important Swedish event: the Stockholm bloodbath in 1520 followed by the succession of Gustav Vasa.

Update on Covid-19.
From 1st of June and throughout the summer, the tours will be done in reduced groups of 20 people maximum. Following the measurements of the government, and considering health, the guide will keep the distance as much as possible. The guide will have gloves, face mask, and hand sanitizer.
