What You Can Expect

Modern Stockholm Walking Tour

Experience the modern side of Stockholm on a walking tour!

Make your way to Sergels Torg, the 1960s-era plaza that is one of Stockholm's most-used meeting spots. Get acquainted with your tour group while your guide fills you in on how Stockholm is more than just the cobbled streets and North German architecture associated with medieval Gamla Stan.

Explore Sergels Torg and learn about its history, now without controversy. Check out the glass façade of the 1970s Kulturhuset and the glass obelisk, Kristallvertikalaccent, that presides over the square. Walk deeper into the residential neighborhoods of Stockholm, learning about its commitment to environmentalism, its cutting-edge design credentials and its vibrant residents.

At Stureplan, admire the stylish buildings and posh boutiques that make it Stockholm's most sought-after neighborhood. Walk to Norrmalmstorg and hear about the hostage drama that occurred here in 1973, prompting the phrase ‘Stockholm Syndrome.' Visit the neoclassical Stockholm Concert Hall, host to many Nobel Prize banquets over the years.
End your tour at Kungsträdgården, the locals favorite place to hang out and enjoy a mild day. At the conclusion of the tour, feel free to stop at one of the many cafes that line the park's paths for a traditional 'fika', or coffee and pastry.
