There’s so much to see around the city

Stockholm has 6 boroughs – Gamla stan (Old Town), Kungsholmen, Norrmalm, Södermalm, Vasastan and Östermalm – all with their own charm and atmosphere and well worth a visit. Come along and explore different parts of this beautiful city. Here are just a few examples …

  • Wander through medieval streets and have beer at a pub(Gamla stan
  • Stroll along the beautiful lakeshore promenade (Kungsholmen)
  • Check out the back streets of the downtown area (Norrmalm)
  • Browse through the funky design stores in SoFo (Södermalm)
  • Visit the antique shops and art galleries (Vasastan)
  • Have lunch or a snack at a food hall from the 1800’s (Östermalm)
  • In other words, do what the locals do!



So what would you like to do?

When you fill out the form on the Booking page to request for a walk On the Town (4 hrs), please tell me a little about your interests and what you’d like to see and do during your visit to Stockholm. I will do my very best to see to that you don’t miss out on anything!

For more info, pricing and contact, see BOOKING.


Public Transportation in Stockholm

We’ll move around town by public transportation (metro, buses, trams and ferries). That will save us valuable time and it’s also a lot cheaper and faster than taking taxis or hopping on and off sightseeing buses. Read more about tickets from SL – Stockholm Public Transport.

Historic Stockholm City Walks with a personal touch

Are you looking for a historic city walk in Stockholm with a personal touch? I arrange walking tours in English for small private groups of free independent travelers with a self-booked itinerary who wish to explore the city along with family and friends away from the busy pre-packaged sightseeing group tours. If you want to experience something different I’ll take you out on the town where you can hang out with the locals.


On the Town together with a native Stockholmer

How about having a 4th generation Stockholmer show you around her hometown? I specialize in personal walks that allow you to see different parts of my hometown and experience everyday life with a native. The group will consist only of you and the people you are traveling with. During the walk I will tell you about the places we pass along the way, and describe and explain as we go.

Welcome to my home city and Stockholm Stories!
