Which are the Best Free Tours in Stockholm?

Recognized as one of the most beautiful capitals in the world, Stockholm is also known as the “Venice of the North”. The city is built on 14 islands, with charming bridges and roads interconnecting areas of very different characters and aesthetics.

For many centuries, Stockholm was synonymous with Gamla Stan, the old town. Although founded in the Middle Ages, this amazing area stands out for its photogenic 16th and 17th century buildings, as well as its glamorous boutiques, jewelers and restaurants.

For the best possible introduction to Scandinavia, book a Free Walking Tour of Stockholm’s Old Town. You will stroll along its historic heart and see the Royal Palace, the Cathedral, the German Church and many essential landmarks.

Walking through charming cobbled streets with an English-speaking guide, you will have the opportunity to learn about Scandinavian lifestyle and see the Riddarholmen Church, the Swedish Parliament and the Stockholm City Hall.

After touring the old city, we recommend joining a New City Free Tour to get a complete picture of contemporary Swedish culture and society. See Nybroplan, stroll through Humlegarden, discover the statue of Linnaeus, and learn about Sweden’s many contributions to modern science.

Alternatively, book a Free Tour around the island of Sodermalm to see the most youthful and carefree face of Stockholm. And take in the stunning views from the Monteliusvagen viewpoint!

With more than 100 museums, many of them on the island of Djurgarden, Stockholm is a perfect travel destination for art and culture lovers. Our favorites include the Skansen Open Air Museum, the gigantic National Museum, and the interesting Vasa Museum, which showcases the world’s only preserved 17th century ship.
