DAY 1: Start your day at Strömkajen. The Royal Canal Tour departs from here by boat. This 50-minute tour will take you past the Vasa Museum, Waldemarsudde and numerous historic buildings in a beautiful setting. Continue to Old Town/Gamla Stan for a visit to the Royal Palace. Here, you can see the grand apartments, the Treasury with state regalia and the parade of soldiers. Strolling through the cozy neighborhood of Gamla Stan is a must for everyone who visits Stockholm. Take the chance to eat lunch or enjoy coffee and a treat at one of the cafés and restaurants here. Finish the day with a visit to City Hall, whose characteristic tower with three crowns is a Stockholm landmark. From here, you’ll find a gorgeous view of the city.
DAY 2: Take the tram, bus or ferry out to Djurgården to visit two of Stockholm’s most popular sights. Start with Skansen, the world’s oldest open air museum. Here, you will find restaurants, cafés and cozy lunch spots. Just a short walk from Skansen is the Vasa Museum, the world’s only preserved seventeenth century ship, which was salvaged and restored after resting on the sea floor for 333 years. The museum, which is the most visited in Scandinavia, is a unique experience. Finish the day by walking across the Djurgården bridge to the Östermalm neighborhood for a visit to Saluhallen at Östermalmstorg. If you are interested in art, start the day by exploring one of the world’s biggest modern photography collections at Fotografiska by Stadsgårdskajen. Enjoy an organic lunch at the museum’s restaurant, which also offers an incredible view. Stroll along Skeppsbron in Gamla Stan, past the Royal Palace out to Skeppsholmen.
