We wandered in here after reading the menu board and being drawn if by the "creamy fish and shellfish stew with croutons and aioli" and we were not disappointed. The meal was delicate in flavour and the variety of fish and shellfish delicious. The staff...More

The restaurant is understated but provides good quality food. Prices reflect the quality and the location: the restaurant being located on a main route through Gamlastan. Welcome drinks and bread are complementary. Toilets are situated up stairs- and the entrance is up a small flight...More

Old town, real urban beauty! We explored this town this month and I couldn't resist myself from touching stones of those buildings. Took me back about hundred years straight away!

While this is proudly shown as the narrowest alley in Stockholm, unfortunately it's covered with graffiti from one end to the other. There are also a load of tourists so it's difficult to get a chance to walk through or even to take a photo.

Very narrow alley. Nothing more, nothing less. It's nice to walk through if you're there anyway, but apart from that not really THE attraction of Gamla Stan.

I was disgusted by all the graffiti. An internet photo from 2006 shows no graffiti. This is the narrowest street in Stockholm, named after my 11th great grandfather--Marten Trotzig (1559-1617); he was one of the richest merchants in Stockholm. He was beaten to death in...More

Just as the headline says - a very narrow alley. Nothing to see here, but the surroundings in the old city are nice and the alley has an interesting history.

Hi, went to see Marten Trotzigs grand and it was a very good place for a picture. We were walking close by so it was a good stop during our sightseeing walk. Certainly not a place that you need to plan for in your itinerary.

A small graffiti covered ally- marketed as a smallest street in Gamla Stan. It's an ally with steps, no shops, nothing to see but other tourists looking at nothing.

I arrived early (before 9.15am) and had it to myself, and did wonder what the fuss was about. It's really an alley with a staircase! Yes, it gets narrow, but any medieval atmosphere I think is ruined by the wall to wall graffiti. This seems...More

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)
