Free Tour of Stockholm New Town

After meeting your English-speaking guide at 3 pm at Gustavo Adolfo torg, the roundabout in front of the Royal Swedish Opera, your free walking tour of Stockholm New Town will begin.

The first stop on your walking tour will be Stockholm City Hall: from its impressive esplanade you'll enjoy excellent views of the monuments located across the water on the nearby Riddarholmen, or "The Knights' Islet". Do you know how it got this name?

Continue walking onwards to Klara Church, whose tower is the tallest in the city, before making your next stop at Sergels torg, one of Stockholm's most famous shopping districts. However, it hasn't always been so popular...

Not far away, you'll reach the Old Haymarket, where you'll be immersed in the lively pace of daily life as you explore the colourful open-air food stalls. In the same square as the market, you'll see the elegant façade of the Stockholm Concert Hall, or Konsethuset, which plays host to the annual Nobel Prize ceremony. Walking onwards to King Street, your guide will reveal intriguing facts and anecdotes about the Swedish royal family.

As you admire the iconic monuments of New Town, like the Opera House, you'll discover where phrases like "Stockholm Syndrome" came from! Then, at 5:30 pm, your free walking tour will come to an end at Kungsträdgården. From this beautiful park, you'll see Parliament House, or Riksdagshuset in Swedish, where the teenage environmental activist Greta Thunberg sat outside to protest climate change.
