Stockholm in 24 hours
Only spending one day in Stockholm? Here are the essentials!
We recommend visiting Stockholms Stadshus (Stockholm City Hall), where the Nobel Banquet is held every year. From City Hall tower you also have a wonderful view over the entire city. If you'd rather skip climbing the tower, you can choose the view from Fjällgatan on Södermalm instead.
And don't miss Gamla Stan, Stockholm's oldest attraction and one of the best preserved medieval city centers in the world. Walk through the small winding streets lined with stores full of handicrafts, antiques and art galleries, and stop at a cozy café. The Royal Palace and Stockholm Cathedral (where the royal wedding was held in the summer of 2010) are also located in Gamla Stan.
Naturally a city built on fourteen islands offers marvelous views over the water. Hop on a sightseeing boat and experience the beauty of the city from the water.
And don’t miss the most visited museum in Scandinavia, the Vasa Museum on the green island of Djurgården. The warship Vasa sank on its maiden voyage in central Stockholm in the seventeenth century. It's a unique and marvelous experience for older and younger visitors alike.
Welcome to Stockholm – the Capital of Scandinavia!
