About the creator
I am a photographer, and I know where to get the best views of the most iconic landmarks of Stockholm in one go.
Stockholm's City Hall
The tour starts in the City Hall where I will do a short introduction about the history of the building. Public tours can be taken inside to view the beautiful Blue and Gold Halls (100 SEK - 30 min), or take a ride up the tower (70 SEK – 40 min), which offers a fantastic view of Stockholm (Oct - Apr closed), you will need to climb stairs, so be ready for some exercise. There is also an elevator available.
After this we go to kungsträdgården, a park in the center of the city. The park's central location and its outdoor cafés makes it one of the most popular hangouts and meeting places in Stockholm. Here you will find different landscapes and activities depending of the season.
Parliament House and Gamlastan
The next stop will be The Parliament House (Swedish:Riksdagshuset), is the seat of the parliament of Sweden. We go through to then find Gamla Stan, (the Old Town), one of the largest and best preserved medieval city centers in Europe, and one of the foremost attractions in Stockholm. This is where Stockholm was founded in 1252. The Nobel Museum attracts visitors to Gamla Stan’s main square, Stortorget. This is where the much loved traditional Christmas market selling reindeer meat, cheese, saffron buns and glogg (mulled wine) is held annually.
To end the tour we head to Monteliusvägen, a 500-meter long (quarter mile) walking path with a magnificent view of Lake Mälaren, City Hall, and Riddarholmen, especially at sunrise and sunset.The path is lined with charming houses on one side and a beautiful view on the other. There are areas of clay and wooden planks that are very slippery in the winter.
