Wasn’t looking for Mårten Trotzigs Gränd, however, it was easy enough to spot due to tourists taking photos in the alley, good luck with getting a photo without strangers in. Full of puerile graffiti, which is a bit odd, as don’t recall seeing it elsewhere...More

Yes it's just a narrow lane covered in graffiti but if you're already walking around the old town anyway, you might as well enjoy the fun in going up or down this lane. It's not the smallest in Europe - the one in the Czech...More

The narrowest street in Stockholm at just 90 cms. Unfortunately the walls are covered in graffiti which detracts from the laneway.

Mårten Trotzigs gränd is an alley in Gamla Stan (Old Town). It leads from Västerlånggatan up to Prästgatan. It has 36 steps and the width is only 90 centimeters. It has been a picturesque alley but now it has been smudged with graffitis.

Walked past it by accident. It's a heavily graffitied passageway that gets slightly narrower as you walk through. For some reason people look at it. Oh and there are some stairs to walk up. I don't get it...?

If you are nearby then worth having a look at this narrow alley. But that’s all it is - it’s not very atmospheric due to the number of tourists crowding it. It’s also full of graffiti tags, not art.

The most narrow street in Stockholm is crowded almost all the time. At the top of the stairs it is more narrow than on the other side. Easy to find due to the numerous tourists turning towards it.

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)
