How to Spend 1 Day in Stockholm

How to Spend 1 Day in Stockholm

Spread over 14 islands, Stockholm is idyllically surrounded by water, woodlands, and plenty of open space. Add in its well-preserved medieval core packed with must-see sights and it’s easy to understand why the Swedish capital is often said to be one of Europe’s most beautiful cities. Here’s how to spend one memorable day in Stockholm.

Morning: Hit the Must-See Sights

Despite comprising more than a dozen islands, Stockholm is easily navigable, so you can see the top sights within a short time. Guided bus and boat tours typically take visitors to attractions including the Royal Palace, City Hall, and Vasa Museum, and conclude with a cruise around the Stockholm archipelago. Stockholm is an exceptionally bike-friendly city, too, so another option is a guided bicycle tour, which has the added benefit of reaching places that big buses miss. Alternatively, a hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus or boat tour allows you to set your own schedule and spend as long as you like at each stop before continuing along the route.

Afternoon: Delve Deeper into Top Attractions

Now that you have gotten your bearings in Stockholm, you can focus on certain attractions that you wish to spend more time at. Save money by booking a Stockholm Pass, which affords entry to attractions and museums including the Nobel Museum, Drottningholm Palace, Vasa Museum, and Skansen for the length of the pass’ validity (one, two, three, or five days). The pass also includes sightseeing tours by boat or bus. If you are feeling hungry, head to Sodermalm for lunch. The traditionally working-class neighborhood has undergone a revival in recent years and is now Stockholm’s hippest, filled with diverse restaurants, galleries, and stores.

Night: Experience Stockholm After Sunset

The cobblestone streets, tiny courtyards, and old buildings of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s medieval center, have seen centuries of turbulent history. You can learn about some of its stories and mysteries on a walking ghost tour after dark. If that’s not your scene, you can improve your photography skills and secure some great nighttime images of Stockholm on an evening photo tour led by a professional photographer. Alternatively, if after a busy day of exploring you’d rather simply take a seat and enjoy the view, a dinner cruise through the inner Stockholm archipelago is a relaxing way to cap off your day in the Swedish capital.
