Gamla Stan Stockholm

Old Town, also known as Gamla Stan in Stockholm, dates back to the 13th century. Located mostly on Stockholm’s central island of Stadsholmen, Sweden, Gamla Stan is known as the historic heart of Stockholm. Perhaps the most attractive and iconic feature of Gamla Stan is the archaic atmosphere. You can almost feel yourself drifting back in time as you stride along the cobblestone boulevards like the famous Mårten Trotzigs Gränd that spans less than a meter in width. Of course, Gamla Stan’s other claim to fame is its collection of unforgettable museums and medieval architecture.

  • Explore the halls of the baroque-style Royal Palace in Stockholm, the official residence of the King and Queen of Sweden, and wander through the scenic courtyards of the majestic palace grounds.
  • Visit one of the many historic churches near Gamla Stan, including Sweden’s oldest church, the Stockholm Cathedral which is the medieval abbey of Riddarholmen Church, or the German Church.
  • Immerse yourself in the exceptional baths of Storkyrkobadet, situated in what used to be an 18th century wine cellar. Be advised the baths close during summer and there are designated days for male and female visitors.

Most visitors arriving by international flight to Stockholm, Sweden, will land in Arlanda International Airport. The Arlanda Express Train runs every 15 minutes between the airport terminal and downtown. For a slightly cheaper commute into the city centre, take the Linköping-Stockholm-Gävle commuter train. Some hotels offer complimentary shuttle service. Taxis are widely available throughout the city. The Tunnelbana metro system reaches Stockholm’s Old Town via Gamla Stan or Slussen. From the central district of Morrmalm and the separate island district Södermalm, you may enjoy a short walk to Gamla Stan.
