A Wide Variety of Attractions for Guests
There are many things to do while in Stockholm, these are some of our favorites!
- Visit Stockholm’s City Hall (Stadshuset)
- The City Hall has a unique architectural history and offers public tours of this beautiful space. It hosts public events such as orchestra concerts and other shows in its main hall where the Nobel Banquet is held each year. The City Hall overlooks Lake Malar, one of Stockholm’s many bodies of water. There are also tours available to see the view of the city from the City Hall Tower. The climb up the tower consists of 300+ stairs with sculptures along the way, however there is also the option to take an elevator.
- Visit the Vasa Museum
- In the 17th century, the King of Sweden had his people build a war ship. When the intricate ship was finished and loaded up to leave port, the ship sank just meters off of the shore. The ship was rescued in the 1960’s and the museum was built around it. The fascinating museum shares information about the architecture of the museum, exhibits about the sailors and passengers on the ship, how it was built and much more. The Vasa was well preserved in the brackish waters of the Baltic Ocean, making it a treasure for all who visit it.
- Shop in Gamla Stan
- Gamla Stan is the old town of Stockholm on an island in the center of the city that dates back to the 13th century. It is made up of old buildings with alleyways and cobbled streets. There is shopping and dining throughout Gamla Stan, and local artists display galleries of their unique artwork. Gamla Stan is a great place for a “fika”, or a break for coffee and a pastry, especially in front of the iconic medieval buildings located in the town square.
