It’s no secret that the Old Town and Vasa Museum are two of the top attractions in Stockholm, but how you experience them is quite different! On this tour, you will check out all the hidden gems of these city favorites in one go.
You will start in the oldest part of Stockholm, the Old Town, where once upon a time a city was founded (in 1252 to be exact). Follow your private guide through the narrow streets and over the cobblestone paths to discover the Royal Palace, the Stockholm Cathedral and of course the main square, Stortorget, with its colorful buildings frequently seen on Instagram. Once you’ve scouted all the must-see spots, jump on board one of the public ferries to take you across the harbor to the island of Djurgården. One of the most awe-striking attractions on this island is the Vasa Museum.
Arriving at the Vasa Museum, skip the line and enter directly inside to see the giant warship that has made it into history books - it will be no surprise why! With your guide, learn all about the most well-preserved ship in the whole wide world, the Vasa, including when she was built, why she sank and how she was salvaged.
On this all-in-one walking tour, you will see Stockholm from the water - a sight for sore eyes - and visit not one but two islands in the inner-city. The tour typically ends inside the Vasa Museum after a short guided tour so you may continue to enjoy the many great exhibits. After all, it is recommended you stay on the island and visit neighboring museums - you’ll be glad you did!
