How to Spend 2 Days in Stockholm

How to Spend 2 Days in Stockholm

Two days in Stockholm allow you time to thoroughly explore the city—from the cobblestoned streets of Gamla Stan to stately Drottningholm Palace—and to get out onto the water that surrounds the city. Here’s how to spend two days in the Swedish capital, one of Europe’s most beautiful cities.

Day 1: Sightsee in the City

**Morning:**Get your bearings by embarking on a guided tour. A hop-on hop-off sightseeing bus allows you to set your own schedule and spend as long as you like at each stop before continuing along the route. Alternatively, since Stockholm is a very bike-friendly city, a bicycle tour is a great way to see top sights, plus some off-the-beaten-path places missed by big buses.

**Afternoon:**Spend some time delving deep into one or two of Stockholm’s must-see attractions. You can save money by purchasing a Stockholm Pass, which affords entry to sights and museums including the Nobel Museum, Drottningholm Palace, the Vasa Museum, and Skansen for the length of the pass’ validity (one, two, three, or five days). 

**Night:**Discover the hidden side of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s medieval center, and its long and rich history on a ghost-themed walking tour. Ghost tours are typically by foot and recount true stories—plus a few myths and legends—as you walk along cobblestoned streets and duck into little courtyards.

Day 2: Explore the Archipelago

**Morning:**Water is a crucial element in the lives of Stockholmers. Immerse yourself in the scenic archipelago on a sailing or kayaking tour. Tours typically include onshore time on one of the islands and the opportunity to swim in the water; many often also provide lunch.

**Afternoon:**With a hop-on hop-off boat cruise ticket, you can go island-hopping at your leisure. Create your own itinerary by disembarking at any stop of interest along the sightseeing route—such as the Royal Palace, Nybroviken, Gamla Stan, and the Vasa Museum—and spending as little or as much time as you wish.

**Night:**Conclude your visit to Stockholm back out on the archipelago with a dinner cruise. Tours typically include a 3-course meal, offering dinner with a view and a relaxing way to conclude your 2-day visit to the Swedish capital.
