Walking Tour of Östermalm and Swedish Society
Welcome to Rainbow Tours! We are a group of national and international students of Stockholm, who want to share this beautiful city with everyone. We all love and support the "Free Walking Tours" idea as we are students who enjoy traveling, and we want to go one step further: making the tours more friendly and personal, trying to connect with everyone, and to make the tours accesible for everyone. Book your tour because there are limited spots! And more guides will attend if necessary.
Welcome to Östermalm, the most exclusive district of Stockholm.
In this Walking Tour of Östermalm we will focus on Swedish society.
We will mix the most important modern historical events with social aspects such as the happiness index, religion, the welfare state system, and fun and interesting stories like the Stockholm syndrome, scientific innovations and the murder of Olof Palme.
Join us on this tour to learn current affairs of Sweden, you will understand how Swedish society works and what makes nordic countries so special!
There are limited spots, so please, book in advance! In case you come with a group of 6 or more, contact us for a private tour.
