What makes this tour special

Discover Stockholm's mixture of historical and modern architecture on this walking tour, which includes tickets to the majestic Drottningholm Palace.

Cultural Stockholm

With Stockholm offering a veritable smorgasbord of world-class historical and modern architecture, this great Northern European city is sure to appeal to architectural aficionados and novices alike. Your tour begins with a visit to the bustling Sergerls Torg - a central, public square in Stockholm and is named after 18th century sculptor Johan Tobias Sergel, whose workshop was once located north of the square.

You will then proceed to the Royal Swedish Opera, much loved by Swedes everywhere; it is the country’s premier stage for all things opera and ballet. The Opera House as you see it today was built in the nineteenth century boasting a beautiful neoclassical front facade, adorned with statues, arches, and Corinthian and Tuscan columns. You will then venture on to the Stockholm Concert Hall, design by Ivar Tengbom and completed in 1926. The hall is home to the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and frequently hosts the very best of Swedish and international orchestral music. 

Swedish Love for the Orient

After your foray into the musical world of Stockholm you will have the pleasure of visiting Drottningholm Palace where you will discover the stunning 18th century architectural gem that is the Chinese Pavilion, located in the beautiful palace grounds. The fairytale Drottningholm Palace is a beautiful treasure of Stockholm, featuring some of Europe's best examples of Rococo design, complete with a plethora of Chinoiserie and Swedish fine art. The pavilion is currently one of Sweden's Royal Palaces, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and well worth a visit.
