Stockholm City Walking Tour Including the Vasa Museum
Tour description provided by Viator
Visit three must-see Stockholm sites, Gamla Stan, Djurgården Island and the Vasa Museum, on a 3-hour walking tour with a knowledgeable local guide! Starting from Gamla Stan (the Old Town), the tour introduces you to attractions like Stockholm Royal Palace and the Coronation Church, before heading to Djurgården island by ferry. Walk through the neighborhood and then head inside the incredible Vasa Museum to learn about the city's maritime history.
Meet your guide at Stortorget, the main square in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s gorgeous Old Town. Gamla Stan is a place brimming with history and your guide will regale you with tales about the people that once lived here -- like Birger Jarl, the city’s founder -- as you walk.
Amble through the zigzag of pretty streets, and see top Gamla Stan attractions like the Coronation Church, and the St George and the Dragon statue. Walk past Stockholm Royal Palace – the official residence of Sweden’s royal family – and pose for pictures against its majestic backdrop.
Leave the Old Town and cross over to Djurgården island on a 10-minute ferry ride, watching the sights of Gamla Stan slip from your view as you cruise through the water. The island is a neighborhood in its own right, and you’ll discover its charms on a leisurely paced walking tour. Pass pretty 18th-century wooden houses lining swathes of tranquil parkland and see an interesting grave diggers house!
The island’s star attraction is the incredible Vasa Museum, home to a meticulously restored ship that lay underwater for over 300 years. See it next, and learn the story of the famous Vasa ship on a 30-minute tour of the museum. Marvel at features like her bronze cannon that would have made her a feared war ship, should she not have sank on her maiden voyage! Explore the ship itself, watch a short film in the museum and then enjoy a coffee in the restaurant.
Your tour finishes inside the Vasa Museum, and you can continue exploring independently if you wish.
