Tour Details

Stockholm City Sightseeing Hop On / Off Bus

Stockholm looks out to the Baltic Sea. Boasting a 700-year-old history, the city is home to grand public buildings, palaces and has a rich cultural history. Stockholm is world famous for being stunningly picturesque and sits on 14 islands. It is surrounded by water and presents parkland, forest, and beautiful views. Discover the renowned Royal Palace, gothic churches, Swedish design-ware shops, and excellent cafes and restaurants. Hop aboard an open-top bus and explore Stockholm and its sights at your own pace. The buses stop at carefully chosen spots including the City Hall, the Vasa Museum and Skansen.

Take the bus tour to Old Town, which is the original heart of Stockholm. Browse the souvenir shops and visit the trendy district SoFo at Sodermalm with its restaurants, pubs, and boutiques. Admire exhibitions by famous photographers and peruse the shop dedicated to the medium of photography at Fotografiska. Hop off at City Hall which attracts around 400,000 visitors annually and holds the most exclusive ballroom in Stockholm, hosting the Nobel Banquet. Visit Kulturhuset, Stockholm's hotspot for contemporary cultural events such as photo exhibitions, children's stories, concerts, and literary discussions. For the best shopping in town, head for NK/Hamngatan. Strandvagen is the main center for lunch, brunch, dinner, and various archipelago cruises, which run all year round and offer onboard dining.

Visit the Royal Palace, which is the Swedish Royal family's official residence. Here you can see the Royal Apartments, the treasury and the Gustav III's Museum of Antiquities. Next door you will find Stockholm Cathedral St. Nicolai Storkyrkan where several coronations have been held since 1336. Hop off at Vasa Museum which showcases the world's only surviving 17th-century ship, a must for all visitors! Nordiska Museet and Junibacken's storybook museum are also situated here. Skansen is a miniature Sweden which offers both countryside and mid-19th century town quarters. Visit the elks, bears, lynx, and reptiles at the Aquarium, and there is fun to be had at the amusement park, Grona Lund. Discover Sweden's rich history and discover how the Vikings lived at Djurgardsbron, a short walk from the Museum of National Antiquities, which packed with history. For stunning views of the city, take the bus tour to Kaknastorne, a TV tower offering indoor and outdoor decks and a restaurant. Admire the architecture in the wealthy Karlaplan and head for Stureplan for shopping, dining, and a buzzing nightlife.

Easy way to get around - buses seemed to run quite often, which makes it easy to get off, and then hop back on!

Amazing way to get around Stockholm
July 12, 2019
This is a great way to get around to see everything! Also the boat HOHO takes you from the pier where the cruise ships dock to the center of town. Very convenient just bear in mind that they do stop in late afternoon so check the time of the last bus/boat.

Nice introduction to a great city
July 23, 2018
Great experience on Hop on, Hop off busses, with multilingual audioguides. Due to limited time we had to make choices amongst all the city has to offer. We visited the Vasa Museum and went to the Royal Palace in time for the changing of the Gard. Very happy with our choices.
