Project Description

4 days stay

Welcome in one of the most impressive and fascinating capitals in Europe. Stockholm excels not only because of its maritime location and archipelago but also due its rich cultural heritage and history. Combine these factors with the Swedish way of life and you are in for an extraordinary relaxed big city vacation – and if you are lucky, some of that Scandinavian friendliness just might stick.

Day 1: Arrival in Stockholm

Arrival in Stockholm by plane (not incl.). Bus transfer from the airport to a centrally located hotel in the Swedish capital. Dinner at the hotel.

Day 2: Stay in Stockholm – City tour

After breakfast, the day starts with a 3 hour city tour around one of the prettiest capitals in the world. The city was founded on numerous peninsulas and its unique flair stems from the endless number of bridges and impressive architecture. The medieval city center, the royal palace and the city hall with its golden hall, where the annual Nobel prices are awarded, are unavoidable highlights. In the afternoon a 2 hour canal cruise takes you under the bridges of Stockholm and offers a completely different perspective of the city.

Day 3: Stay in Stockholm

The third day is open to leisure. A trip to the Drottingholm castle, the current residence of the royal family is one possibility. Another option is to pay a visit to the Vasa museum, where you can learn all there is to know about the man-o-war Vasa, that was sunk on its maiden voyage in 1628. The impressive ship itself is dry-docked and open for visitors. Skansen, the open air museum with more than 150 original buildings from all over Sweden, is also worth a visit. Or you can opt to stroll around city center, shopping for souvenirs.

Day 4: Departure

Transfer to the airport in due time for departure by plane (not incl.).
