Useful information for your excursions in and around Stockholm
You can find all information you need about the most beautiful sight-seeings, cruise port as well as other useful information about cruise excursions in Stockholm below.
The most beautiful attractions in Stockholm
The capital of Sweden offers a lot of worth-visiting sight-seeings that make shore excursion tours in Stockholm the highlight of many Baltic Sea cruises. Some of Stockholm’s top attractions for cruise excursions are listed below.
Gamla Stan is an island, home to the historic city center of Stockholm with many famous narrow streets and alleys. It is undoubtedly the most popular tourist attraction in Stockholm. The best way to explore the Old town is with a guided shore excursion.
Open-air Museum Skansen
The aim of the Skansen open-air museum is to give visitors an idea of what 19th-century life looked like in Sweden. For this purpose, over 150 historic buildings have been built on the area of the open-air museum.
Vasa is a historic warship, which set sail for the first time in 1628. However, the maiden voyage was fatal and the ship sank. In 1961 Vasa was salvaged and completely restored. Today, Stockholm’s Vasa Museum is a popular stop on a cruise excursion.
Stockholm Palace (Royal Palace)
The central-located Stockholm Palace was completed in 1754 and is the official residence of the Royal house of Sweden. Large parts of the castle are open to the public, which is why a visit to the Stockholm Palace is a popular undertaking.
Stockholm city hall (Stadshus Stockholm)
Stadshus Stockholm is the city hall of the capital of Sweden. It is the seat of the city government, at the same time also the place where the Nobel Prizes are awarded every year. With its striking, more-than-100-meter high tower (328 ft), the city hall is considered the landmark of Stockholm.
Museum of Modern Art (Moderna Museet)
The building of the Museum of Modern Art was designed by the Spanish architect Rafael Moneo. Inside you will find an impressive exhibition of modern and contemporary art, including pieces by Pablo Picasso or Salvador Dalí.
The Nationalmuseum of Sweden holds the largest art collection in Sweden. Exhibited are works by Rembrandt, Ruben, Gauguin, Renoir and many other world-famous artists.
Cruise port in Stockholm
Stockholm’s cruise port terminal is booming and there are plenty of moorings for cruise ships.
Most cruise ships dock at the cruise terminal Stadsgården or further north at the terminal Frihamnen. Further north is the Pier Värtahamnen, which is also occasionally used by cruise ships. Other smaller cruise ships dock near the center of Skeppsbron.
Interesting facts about your shore excursion in Stockholm
Shipping lines and routes
Stockholm is one of the most sought-after cruise ports in the Baltic Ocean. There is hardly any large cruise line that doesn’t offer Baltic Sea cruises to Stockholm.
NCL, Celebrity, Royal Caribbean or Costa cruise and MSC also dock their ships at the port of Stockholm.
Immigration and Visa
US citizens don’t need to apply for a tourist visa to enter the Schengen countries in Europe when the visit is under 90 days. It is therefore advisable to check the valid entry requirements for the booked cruise route before departure.
The best travel weather for Stockholm and also for other Baltic Sea cruises are in the months of May to August. There is more sunlight, the days are longer and the temperature is higher, which all make Stockholm’s shore excursions as pleasant as possible during this time of the year.
Spring and fall here are off seasons so it is less busy. During the winter months, cruise ships don’t usually dock at Stockholm port.
