This area of Stockholm is about as authentic a treat you can have of a medieval township as anywhere in the world. Quite a few of the buildings are remnants from the 13th and 14th centuries, and the layout hasn’t changed in a long long time. Tall colourful buildings, cute cobbled roads all hosting various restaurants, bars, boutiques and shoppetes have the tourist flocking here for a really charming old time. Some must see sights include the German Church, the Marten Trotzigs Grand (really step, really narrow road) and various touristy squares, all good for resting and people watching. A must visit square is the Stortoget; the Borhuset, an old stock exchange building is here, and it’s also the site of a pretty charming christmas market. Of course, don’t forget the best attraction here: The Royal Palace. Photos and more photos. That’s what you need here. Also, visit the popular attractions in the city by following Stockholm Itinerary 5 Days.
