The old town in Stockholm seems to be the place where all the tourists seem to end up at one time or another. It is indeed a nice place for a stroll around the old buildings in the old town.
In addition to the nice small streets you find a lot of different restaurants and café spread across Gamla Stan and you also find some of the biggest attractions in the city – including the Royal Castle and the most famous square Stortorget.
Not surprising we joined the countless tourist on several occasions and went for a wonder through the old town. There are a lot to look at in the small streets with the old houses and most of the old town is pedestrian only so it is easy to just stroll along the many streets and squares.
After we have wondered the many streets of the main island of Gamla Stan we go across an old bridge to another small island in the old town called Riddarholmen. It is a very nice little island with a lot of nice buildings. But much to our surprise there is hardly any tourist making the short walk across the bridge to this part of the old town. I think the rest of the tourist loose out and we can enjoy the little walk around the old houses and enjoy a great view of the city hall across the water on yet another of the many small islands in Stockholm.
