Overview

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.

Tourist centre but lots of things to see and do. Tourist shops, restaurants and bars. Only a short walk from the centre.

Stockholm's old town is very attractive and in interesting place to stroll for a couple of hours. Visit the Royal Palace at midday and you will catch the changing of the guard.

It's very nice place in Stockholm City, one should not miss this place. It has lots of old buildings, church and palace. I generally keep going there in my free time and every time I see different version of it. The building architecture and designs...More

Is nice to walk and see old buildings but the food and beverage offer is rather poor and repetitive , too many cheap souvenirs shops - all made in China - making it a cheap place ultimately . Come and see once and move on.

Stockholm. Is a lovely pretty city. Architecture is lovely. The bars are very pricey though. 2 glasses of wine will set you back €27 or €19 for 2 cidres.

Lovely typical Scandavian setting by the river, usual hipster spots popping up, cyclists in abundance with lots of little boutique places to eat and shop.

Didn’t think the old town part of the city will be this interesting. The royal palace and Storkyrkan you must visit. Main shopping street leads to the narrow steps of Marten Trotzigs Grand. One thing to remind is that the prices in shops are quite...More

Lots of restaurants, good shopping, old cobblestone streets. What more could you ask for - quintessential old Europe!

Loads to see. The Royal Palace with magnificent state rooms, the chapel, Treasury, Tre Kronor museum, the changing of the palace guards, the cathedral, City Hall, Riddarholm Kirkan, full of the tombs of the Swedish Kings and Queens. Lovely little streets. Lots of cafes etc.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)

If you like Old Towns then this is a nice one. You might go on one of the free tours. I think there is one in summer at 1000 hrs. We liked sitting near the harbor in a park and watching the boats and people. If I only had... More
