The Original Stockholm Ghost Walk and Historical Tour

The Original Stockholm Ghost Walk and Historical Tour

Meet your local guide in Gamla Stan, Stockholm's old town, and set off on this 2-hour walking tour of the city's oldest neighborhood. Wear sensible walking shoes suited for the cobblestone streets and bundle up; Stockholm's nights between November and March can be bitter. 

Walk down narrow alleyways and through tiny courtyards that most tourists and visitors never see. By the light of his lantern, your guide will entertain and horrify you with tales of poltergeists, plagues, public executions and murders. Experience the past brought back to life as you smell, taste and see what medieval Stockholm might have been like.

There are several tours by the same company that start around the same time. The first two, were entirely in Swedish, so i immediately panicked thinking I booked the wrong tour. I was quickly assured by the tour guide that the English tour was starting shortly thereafter.

The English tour guide is an amazing story teller. It was riveting. He dressed as the picture depicts, which added to the excitement. He met what I assume or common tour challenges, such as stragglers and free listeners with humor. His stories were engaging and super exciting. We even took a quick trip into the catacombs. Well worth the money and chilly weather conditions!

Absolutely brilliant. The stories, the history, the theatre provided by the tour company. Absolutely essential if you have the time. If you don't, try to make time.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended June 2015

What an interesting way to get alot of historical information! I took my two teenage grandkids to Stockholm and we all enjoyed the tour. The guide was very theatrical and I didn't know if the kids would think him a little corny, but they loved it. The ghost stories were more about devious characters in Stockholm's past and alot about the plagues that ravaged Stockholm in the Middle Ages, but it was all a very interesting way to absorb historical facts. Great fun!
