Overview
When Stockholm's museums have locked their ancient doors, when the stores are all closed and people have retreated to the safety of their homes, this is when the empty streets of Stockholm's Old Town are handed over to the spirits, ghosts, legends and to us. Stockholm's past will come to life on this 1,5 hour walking tour.
Highlights
  • Discover a different side to Stockholm on a ghost walk and historical tour
  • See places missed by most tourists
  • Hear little-known stories of Stockholm’s history from your guide
  • Take an atmospheric walk through medieval streets, lit only by a lantern
What to Expect
In the early evening, make your way to the meeting point in Stockholm's Old Town (Gamla stan). Comfortable walking shoes and warm clothing (especially during the winter) are recommended. Meet your guide who, by the light of their lantern, leads you through tight alleyways, up narrow staircases, across cobblestoned streets, and through cozy courtyards—places that few other tourists see. Along the way, your guide delights and horrifies with tales of plagues, executions, murders, and, of course, ghosts. Part entertainment and part history tour, the past is brought vividly to life as you stroll the streets of Stockholm uncovering its tightly held secrets. Your tour concludes in the center of Old Town.

Our guide, Louis, was outstanding! He shared his extensive knowledge of Gamla Stan and Stockholm in general in a way that held us all captivated. He engaged members of the group as he told his tales. This tour is well worth the money!

Luise (or Lewis, not sure) is an excellent guide - acting skills at professional level! Fun facts, stories, just a little bit creepy but pleasant! Recommended!

My wife and I like ghost tours because it can be a way of taking a walking tour with a little different spin on things. Our guide was very good and kept my interest with a combination of history and ghostly humor. Definitely worth it

The guide, Lewis held the 90mins tour in a very enjoyable way deploying his excellent story telling and communication skills. However, the group was way too big, around 40 people and the price was absolutely ridiculously high.

It’s definitely a little strange doing it with the sun still up, but for me and the people I did the walk with it was still a really fun experience.
