Return Details

Old Town Polkagriskokeri AB, Stora Nygatan 44, 111 27 Stockholm, Sweden
Meet your guide at Stortorget, the oldest square in Stockholm located in the heart of Gamla Stan. Make sure to bring your warmest weather gear for this outdoor walking tour that takes place deep in Stockholm's dark, snowy season.

As you stroll down the cobblestone streets amongst the festive twinkling lights, listen to your guide talk about some of Sweden's winter legends and holiday celebrations, like the Feast of Santa Lucia. Stop at Järntorget, one of the most important centers of trade in the 14th century, and Brända Tomten, an unusual triangular-shaped public space that connects many of the neighborhood's narrow alleys.

Back at Stortorget, sit with your guide to ask questions and try some traditional pepparkakor and glögg (gingersnaps and mulled wine). Your tour ends here, and you are free to explore festive, snowy Gamla Stan on your own.
