Itinerary:

In just six hours we will cover the city districts of Södermalm, Gamla Stan, Norrmalm, Östermalm, and Djurgården, each with its own special character and explore the Jewish Heritage of Stockholm, visiting both the Great Synagog and Jewish Museum.

The trendy and bohemian area of the city, Södermalm, offers small wooden houses from the 1700s, fantastic views of the city, fashion, design and great local bars.

Gamla Stan or Old Town as we would say in English, is where everything once began. With its narrow alleyways and cobblestone streets, this island is home to the Royal Palace. Stories and legends from days long past will make history come to life all around us! The Old Town is also where the first synagogue and Jewish settlement was established in 1775.

The city center of Stockholm is known as Norrmalm. It is the focal point of modern Stockholm with great shopping opportunities and featuring a backdrop of City Hall, the venue for the Nobel Prize Banquet. The district is also home to the Great Synagogue of Stockholm, with a beautiful folkloristic interior and Assyrian exterior.

The Jewish Museum (Judiska Museet): Learn the history of the Jews in Sweden, how they adapted to the Swedish society and their contribution to culture, art, literature, trade and industry.

Östermalm is the city’s most fashionable neighbourhood with stately apartment buildings, fantastic architecture and scenic walkways.

Djurgården is better known as the outdoor recreation center for the city locals as well as home to many of the city’s museums, the Vasa Museum, the Open Air Museum of Skansen and the latest addition, ABBA the Museum.

The Vasa Museum (Vasamuseet): The Vasa ship was built between 1625 and 1628 as the pride and joy of the Swedish navy. As she embarked on her maiden voyage she fired a big salute, sailed for 20 minutes then went straight to the bottom of the sea. Today the Vasa ship lies before us 98 % intact. This is a WOW experience!
