This Gamla Stan walking tour takes you to discover the ancient history of Stockholm’s Old Town, where the city was founded. Follow your guide through one of Sweden’s narrowest alleyways and hear stories about the neighborhood during medieval times. It’s ideal for travelers who want a quick introduction to Stockholm’s history and central neighborhood.
What to Expect
Your Gamla Stan walking tour starts at Stortorget, Stockholm’s original town square, where you meet your guide and group.

Pass German-style buildings and cobbled streets, as you follow your guide on foot through Gamla Stan. Walk through one of the city’s narrowest streets and stop at one of its smallest statues, Jarnpojke. Learn about the history of Gamla Stan during medieval days and the story of St. George and the dragon, a popular Stockholm legend.

This guided tour also takes you to the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet) to admire the Italian baroque architecture.

End your tour back at Stortorget.
