Frihamnen, Stockholm, 115 56

The Basics

With so much to see and do in Stockholm, most cruise visitors opt to spend their time discovering the city. On a Stockholm city tour, canal cruise, or hop-on hop-off bus tour, check off Stockholm highlights such as the Royal Palace, the Vasa Museum, City Hall, and the Nobel Museum. Or get to know the atmospheric old town of Gamla Stan on a walking tour. Another popular shore excursion is a Viking history tour, including the nearby towns of Sigtuna and Uppsala, and the archeological site of Täby.

How to Get to Stockholm From the Stockholm Cruise Ports

Most cruise ships dock at Stadsgården on the island of Södermalm, a 30-minute walk from downtown Stockholm and popular hop-on hop-off bus stop. Smaller ships dock right in the heart of Gamla Stan, while others arrive to Frihamnen and Värtahamnen, a 30-minute bus ride away. Bigger cruise ships sometimes dock at Nynäshamn, 36 miles (58 kilometers) south of Stockholm, or around one hour by train.
