Stockholm Viking History
Spread across 15 island, Sweden’s capital is a bustling city of cafes, galleries, and restaurants, but underneath lies a rich history of Viking tribes, warrior spirit, and Norse mythology. Here’s how to see the best of Stockholm’s Viking history.

Viking History in Stockholm
The Vikings dominated the region around what is now present-day Sweden between the late eighth century and the mid-11th century, establishing trade, colonization, and conquest routes to far-flung destinations including the British Isles, the Faroe Islands, Germany, Iceland, Norway, Russian, and Ukraine. Although widely revered as a barbaric, marauding force, the Vikings demonstrated advanced engineering skills and even artistic creativity, and their sphere of cultural and linguistic influence reaches far and wide.

Ways to Experience Viking History in Stockholm
Visitors to Stockholm can explore the region’s rich Viking history and heritage by choosing from a broad range of Viking-themed activities, day trips, and tours. In Stockholm, follow a tour guide on a Viking-themed walking tour around the Old Town (Gamla Stan) and take in top sites such as the Royal Palace (Kungliga Slotten) and the Parliament House. Along the way, hear how Viking and Scandinavian cultures have intertwined through the centuries. Alternatively, use Stockholm as a base and head further afield on a day trip to Gamla Uppsala, Sigtuna (Sweden’s oldest town), and the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Markim-Orkesta, where the region’s Viking history comes to life.
