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.

Tour description

Welcome to our Stockholm Science tour!
Sweden has many scientists whose contributions have helped world development.

We will start the tour in Odenplan, in front of the Gustav Vasa Church. Then we will go to the observatory and we will explain the origin of the thermometer, designed by Anders Celsius. Then we will go down to the old universities, the Tegnerlunden park where we will tell you the stories of the most important writers, Strindberg and Lindgren.

We'll stop by the Branting Monument, and we'll talk a bit about social science. We will end in Nybroplan talking about Berzelii and Arrhenius, the great chemists, having been in Humlegården, admiring the great statue of Carl Von Linné.

This was a very enjoyable tour around an area that otherwise we would have not visited. A lovely idea for both scientists and not scientists!
