"As everybody says, you must..." Gamla Stan (The Old Town) Tip by sgoeke

Gamla Stan (The Old Town), Stockholm: 39 reviews and 44 photos


Favorite thing: As everybody says, you must walk through Gamla Stan. Several times. If you come from the US as I did, it is truly amazing. The buildings are wonderful to look at and just picture all of the history that took place. I had the benefit of a native that told me the history, but you can get it otherwise if you look around. I know there is a walking tour (yeah, I know) through Gamla Stan. The changing of the guard is quite fun, Livruskammaren (sp?), and the two large churches (the Royal Church and the German Church) are both very impressive. It is obvious that they were not tossed together quickly, but a great deal of time was spent building them...from the woodwork inside to the sculpture on the outside, it is all impressive.
