Sightseeing in Sweden’s capital Stockholm is easier than ever with the use of the new Stockholm Pass, (http://www.stockholmpass.com) that essentially puts “the whole city in a card.”
Offering entry to more than 60 top attractions, monuments and museums, plus a range of boat and bus tours, the Stockholm Pass is the city’s most comprehensive ever sightseeing product.
Priced from 595 Swedish Krona (approximately $67) for a one-day adult pass, the Stockholm Pass also includes a free guidebook to help visitors plan their exploration.
The pass works on a simple scan-and-enter system, acting as a ticket into the city’s best attractions and tours. Visitors can discover the history and culture of Stockholm while also saving money, as the Stockholm Pass represents a discount on normal attraction and tour prices.
Featured attractions and tours on the Stockholm Pass include:
- The Royal Palace – one of Europe’s largest and most regal palaces, and still the official residence of the King, with highlights including the Royal Apartments and three museums steeped in regal history. Normally priced at about $18.50, entry is included with the Stockholm Pass.
- Vasa Museum – visit the revered King Gustav II Adolf’s prize warship, which sank just 1,300 metres into its maiden voyage in 1628 and was only salvaged in the second half of the 20th century. Normally priced at around $15, entry is included with the Stockholm Pass.
- Royal Canal Boat Tour – an unmissable experience of Stockholm from the water, travelling from the city centre into the Djurgården Canal, with historic buildings, beautiful green spaces and a spectacular city skyline to be enjoyed. Normally priced at around $22, the tour is included with the Stockholm Pass.
- Nobel Museum – learn about the Nobel Prize and its founder Alfred Nobel, together with the stories of the work of many Nobel Laureates. Normally priced at SEK100, entry is included with the Stockholm Pass.

Another important feature of the Stockholm Pass is a hop-on, hop-off combination bus and boat ticket, normally priced at around $47. It provides 24 hours of on-the-move sightseeing on a range of bus and boat touring routes with stops at many of the city’s top sites — ideal for visitors who want to see as much of the city as possible in a limited time.
A purchase of the pass means visitors will not have to pre-book or queue for tickets at any of the featured attractions or tours.
The Stockholm Pass is available as a one-, two- three- or five-day purchase, with prices starting at $67 for the single day adult pass and $35 for a child.
