Highlights in our programme



The baroque Royal Palace (Kungliga Slottet) in Stockholm is a 600-room royal residence, place of work and cultural/historical treasure.


Old Town (Gamla Stan), the area around the palace, is one of the best-preserved medieval city centres anywhere. The city was founded here in 1252 and one should go here for Stockholm Cathedral (Storkyrkan), the tight, winding, cobblestone streets, gorgeous leafy squares, Sweden’s narrowest alley at Mårten Trotzigs gränd, and an eclectic mix of cafés, bars and souvenir shops.



The City Hall is famous for its grand ceremonial halls and unique pieces of art, and is the venue of the Nobel Prize banquet held on 10 December every year


The impressive Vasa Museum is a magnet for the curious, housing a resurrected 17th century Swedish sunken warship.


Experience Swedish culture and nature at the world’s oldest open-air museum Skansen!

Skansen is showcasing the whole of Sweden with houses and farmsteads from every part of the country.



Valborg- Walpurgis Night is a tradition that came to Sweden from Germany in the Middle Ages. Sing into spring and celebrate Valborg with us – a Skansen tradition since 1892.
