Private Tour of Stockholm: Vasa Museum & City Hall

Stockholm has during the centuries transformed from a fortress to a town,  from a town to a city and is today the capital of Sweden, some say, the capital of Scandinavia, but we will let you decide on that.

      

Highlights
(Click on the name to see Photo)
  • City Hall
  • Gamla Stan
  • Royal Palace
  • Skansen
  • Junibacken
  • Vasa museum

Stockholm city hall can be seen from the enankments and bridges of the Gamla Stan. The elegant brick structure appeared in the beggining of the 20th century on the spit of the Kungsholmen island. The city hall is a venue for the Nobel Prize banquet and the symbol of Stockholm. The yard of the city hall is open for the visits, the building can be visited with the pre-booked tour. The bell tower has the observation spot with the beautiful panorama of Gamla Stan and the Royal palace. 

10 min

Gamla Stan or The Town Between the Bridges is Stockholm's old town, located on Stadsholmen island. This is the oldest part of the city, dating to 13th century, so Gamla Stan is a labyrinth of the charming narrow streets with old houses, numerous restaurants and souvenir shops. The Royal palace, Nobel museum, Stortorget square and many other sites are hidden inside the Gamla Stan. Old town is a great place for the walk, when you can feel the spirit of the medieval city. You can find no transport on the Gamla stan, but the island is very small, it takes no longer than 10 minutes to cross it any direction.

1 hour

The Royal palace is located on the spot of the Kronor Castle - Stockholm's first building. It's the residence of the current king of Sweden and his family. The palace can be visited with the pre-booked tour. Of interest are the Hall of State, the Royal Chapel, the Treasury with the Regalia of Sweden, the Tre Kronor Museum located in the remaining cellar vaults from the former castle, the National Library of Sweden. Daily ceremony of the changing of the guards is organized at noon in the Outer Courtyard of the palace.

15 min

Skansen (the Sconce) is the first open-air museum and zoo in Sweden and is located on the island Djurgården in Stockholm, Sweden. You can visit  a full replica of an average 19th-century town, in which craftsmen in traditional dress such as tanners, shoemakers, silversmiths, bakers and glass-blowers demonstrate their skills in period surroundings. There is even a small patch growing tobacco used for the making of cigarettes. There is also an open-air zoo containing a wide range of Scandinavian animals including the bison, brown bear, moose, grey seal, lynx, otter, red fox, reindeer, wolf, and wolverine.

2 hrs

Junibaken fairy tale museum is devoted to Swedish children’s literature, but especially Astrid Lindgren. The lockers in the entrance hall are unusual in that each is in the form of a giant book-spine, featuring world classics such as Treasure Island and The Jungle Book. Other main attractions include a Storybook Square, a mock public square where each house is devoted to a separate Swedish children’s author. The square ends at a mock Vimmerby railway station. The station also presents framed copies of Lindgren memorabilia. From the station visitors then take a theme-train ride through the world of Astrid Lindgren’s books, with one “stage setting” for each of her well-known works, such as Madicken, Karlsson-on-the-Roof, Ronia the Robber's Daughter, Emil i Lönneberga, and The Brothers Lionheart. The train ride ends at a half-side reconstruction of Villa Villekulla, the home of Lindgren's most well-known character, Pippi Longstocking. It's a great place for the family visit.

1 hour

Vasa is a giant Swedish warship built between 1626 and 1628 to become the flagship and the pride of Sweden. The ship foundered after sailing about 1,300 m (1,400 yd) into her maiden voyage on 10 August 1628. She was located in the late 1950s in a busy shipping lane just outside the Stockholm harbor. Salvaged with a largely intact hull in 1961, it was eventually moved to the Vasa Museum in Stockholm. Vasa is one of the most popular attractions of Sweden and one of its main symbols. It is also world's largest 17th century sailer.

Detailed Program

Time Description
Meeting time: 30 minutes after the ship docks OR at the time specified by your manager.
00:00 - 00:10 Meet your guide and driver outside the main port gate. 
  

Stockholm has during the centuries transformed from a fortress to a town,  from a town to a city and is today the capital of Sweden, some say, the capital of Scandinavia, but we will let you decide on that.

  

Our first stop is at the most popular viewpoint, from where we have a splendid panoramic view of the city.  Overlooking a few of the 14 islands, which Stockholm is founded upon, the Old Town as well as the Vasa Museum and City Hall.

  

The Vasa Museum  is located on an island referred to as Royal Djurgården. It is the Stockholmers most beloved recreational area and home to the city’s amusement park, the open-air museum Skansen, the playhouse of Astrid Lindgren “Junibacken” and much much more. The Vasa Museum displays the Swedish warship Vasa, which could be considered Sweden’s greatest failure but is today instead one of our greatest success stories. Vasa sank on her maiden voyage, in Stockholm’s inner harbour, in 1628. After 333 years at the bottom of the sea the Vasa was salvaged and stands before us 95% intact.

04:00 The City Hall is renowned for its architecture, the Blue Hall and Golden Hall, and for being the site of the Nobel Prize Banquet. As we wonder through this very important building fun and interesting facts like why it took 12 years to complete and who was the most important man throughout the construction are reviled.
