Hello visitors of Stockholm and welcome to my fabulous hometown! My name is Agnes and I am a true Stockholmer - born, raised and currently living here. I consider Stockholm to be one of the most (if not the most) beautiful cities in the whole world. I love my hometown and I have always been interested in knowing as much as I can about its history. I know all the most interesting facts and fun details about Stockholm and I can't wait to share them with you! I have been to countless walking tours myself, both in Stockholm and in other cities all over the world, so I know exactly what you want to know;) I'm so excited that you are here and I would love to teach you everything you need (and don't need) to know about Stockholm. Looking forward to meeting you!

About the Tour

This walking tour will guide you through the most important historical events of Stockholm, while also teaching you how to best spend your time here and how to navigate in the swedish culture.
 

Stockholm is an incredibly beautiful city built on islands, where every island has a different look and a different personality. This tour will walk you through the picturesque old town, which is the center island of Stockholm. It is the perfect place for learning about the history of Stockholm while giving you an overview of all the other islands. I will tell you the most interesting and memorable facts about Stockholm and I will teach you everything you need to know about Swedish culture. And you will of course also get my insider tips on which places to visit, where to shop, and where to eat the best food!
 
Which places are we going to visit on the tour:

  • Gustav Adolfs Torg (start of the tour)
  • Helgeandsholmen (the parliament island)

This tour will be the perfect introduction to your stay in Stockholm. So don't forget to book in order to secure your spot! :)

The way these free walking tours work is I get payed in tips at the end of the tour. So you pay me what you think that the tour was worth (to give you some sort of guidline: people usually pay around 100-200kr) Paypal or cash is ok, so if you don’t have paypal then make sure you have some cash before the tour begins!

Agnes is a fine guide who loves her city! She tells things about her life and that of family members, which makes it very personal. I recommend it to everyone! To Agnes again, thank you very much!
