New for 2013: we have added two hours to this excursion to enhance your Stockholm experience! The guide and driver will meet you at the port to begin the first leg of the five-hour excursion, a 45 minute panoramic drive of Stockholm. Our first photo stop will be at Fjällgatan, from where you will enjoy a superb view of the Old Town. Back on the bus, we will continue the panoramic tour towards the Old Town. Driving along Lake Mälaren, you will enjoy the view of Stockholm’s biggest island, Södermalm, known for its bohemian character, recently made popular by Stieg Larsson’s fictitious characters from The Girl with Dragon Tattoo. Later, we will pass by historic Riddarholmen (The Knights’ Island) with its impressive church, where most Swedish kings and queens are buried. Continuing to the modern part of the city, we will enjoy the view of the Riksdag (the Swedish Parliament) and an inside visit of Stockholm’s landmark City Hall, where the elegant Nobel Banquet takes place. A few minutes later, we will see the Concert Hall, where the Nobel Prizes are awarded each year on the 10th of December. After this, we will go into the modern part of the city with all its bank offices and shopping malls, and take a look at Kulturhuset, Kungsträdgården and the Royal Dramatic Theatre. We will then head into the scenic areas once again – to Stockholm's greenest island, Djurgården, where the celebrated Vasa Museum is situated with the world’s best-preserved 17th century warship, Vasa, which sank on its maiden voyage in 1628 and was salvaged in 1961. After a 45-minute visit to the Vasa Museum, we will make our way into the Old Town in 20 minutes. On the way, we will pass through the upper-market district of Östermalm, getting splendid views of the Grand Hotel, The Royal Opera House, the Swedish Parliament and the Royal Palace along the way.
Here will begin the walking* portion of the tour, giving you the chance to explore charming Old Town up close. You will begin at the Royal Palace, passing by the State Apartments, Royal Armory, Palace Museum and the Museum of Antiquities. As you make your way through the streets of the city, you will see the Storkyrka (Coronation Church), the Finnish Church, Järnpjke (at only 15 cm, the tiniest public sculpture!), Stortorget (the Old Town market square), the Nobel Museum, Tyska Kyrkan (German Church) and Stockholm’s narrowest alley. At the conclusion of the tour, there will be the chance to do some souvenir shopping. You may choose to either spend more time in Old Town at your leisure or return to the ship with the vehicle.
