Stockholm in 24 hours

Publish date: 19 April 2021

Due to the current situation with the coronavirus Covid-19, museums have limited opening hours only admitting a reduced number of visitors at any given time. Some are temporarily closed. We reserve ourselves for any errors in this guide and refer directly to the museums for further questions.

Visiting Stockholm for one day? Here is our suggestion on things to do to get the most out of your stay: Start by visiting the City Hall. In this beautiful building, the Nobel Banquet is held every year, and from the tower, you get a wonderful view of the entire city.

Proceed to Gamla Stan, Stockholm's oldest district and one of the best-preserved medieval city centers in the world. Walkthrough the winding streets lined with stores full of handicrafts, antiques, and art galleries. Stop at a cozy café. The Royal Palace and Stockholm Cathedral are also in Gamla Stan.

To experience Stockholm from the water, hop aboard a sightseeing boat and let it take you for a tour. To get a cultural injection, don’t miss the Vasa Museum on the green island of Djurgården and the Abba Museum close by. For dinner, make your way to Södermalm where you´ll find a great selection of restaurants.
