Recommended length of visit: 1-2 hours
Owner description: 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.

A trip to Stockholm necessarily includes a stroll around its lovely Old Town. The cathedral and Nobel Museum are great places to visit, as are the many cafes and shops. Walking is difficult on the snow-covered streets in winter, so we recommend a summer visit if possible. Enjoy!

This is so old, so narrow, so beautiful, so colorful, from long ago. We had coffee and cake at a very old coffee shop and there was this old radio still being used. It was extremely could that day and here we found this tiny old coffee shop, only 5 tables and o so cozy. We did not want to leave. Gamla Stan was for me outstanding. You can spend a lot of time here.

We went here a few times and each time found a new nook to explore. It’s full of touristy souvenir shops but that didn’t worry us, the whole area has a lovely feel to it,

Lovely atmospheric place to mooch around. You can’t really get lost meandering in the lovely little streets and there are some lovely coffee shops, restaurants and shops to browse. A must if you’re visiting Stockholm and ofcourse you have to stop by the royal palace.

Old town is beautiful, cozy, and full of surprises. Even though it is small, you can get lost easily in its narrow streets and alleys. There are a lot of stores that goes from souvenirs to high end swedish jewelry. On Christmas season is pretty if you're traveling with a partner, it will take you out of the crazy modern life and transport you to another era, a more peaceful one. You can walk around drinking glög, a swedish hot drink with a little alcohol that will keep you warm.
