The Old Town Tour in English has TWO different meeting points: It meets either at Sergels torg (Meeting point Sergels torg square, at the top of the wide stairs by the metro, metro stop T-Centralen, exit Sergels torg) or at the Slussen Metro (Meeting point Peter Myndes backe 3, subway stop Slussen, exit Södermalmstorg). The tours called ”Old Town Sergel” meet at Sergels torg, the tours called ”Old Town Slussen” meet at Slussen Metro.
Follow the guide through cobblestone streets and narrow alleyways as you get to hear about the original island of Stockholm, founded way back in the 13th century.
Old Town or Gamla Stan is filled with beautiful houses and cozy little squares but its history is ripe with blood chilling stories! With 750 years of history, Old Town has enough stories to last for a day-long tour: So we made sure to only include the very best ones! Also, we threw in lots of stuff about vikings for good measure.
