The Swedish capital is an eclectic blend of ultra-modern and medieval. The city itself is full of historic tales best experienced in the company of a guide. At the world’s oldest outdoor museum, your group can learn the basics of Swedish handicraft.
Guided tour in the Old Town
Stroll through the narrow, cobblestoned alleys of the Old Town and find yourself transported 800 years back in time to when Stockholm was founded. While you drink in the ambience of this unique environment, a guide tells your group amazing stories about kings, queens and royal intrigues.
Visit the Royal Palace, the official residence of His Majesty The King. You might even get a glimpse of The King or Queen who use the palace as a daily place of work. In addition to the Royal Apartments, the Treasury containing the regalia is worth a visit. And make sure you don’t miss the Changing of the Guard.
Take your group on a day trip to Drottningholm Palace, the Royal Family’s permanent residence which is on UNESCO’s World Heritage list. Hop aboard a steamer from the turn of the century and feel the sea breeze. Enjoy the beautiful park, the exotic Chinese Pavilion and the palace theatre, one of Europe’s best-preserved 18th century theatres.
