Sightseeing by boat, free outdoor parking in the city centre, make a trip to Drottningholm ... the list of benefits is too long to sum them all up here. You even get a 100-page guidebook including maps.
Of course the Stockholmskortet - that's how it's called in Swedish - is not really free. You have to pay for it.
But the price – starting from 39.99 US dollars – is low, considering all benefits. Public transport in the Swedish capital is excellent, but not cheap if you have to buy a ticket every time. And entry fees add up fast if you want to see many museums and sights.
You don’t have to stand in line for a subway or underground ticket. You don’t have to pay an entry fee every time you want to see a museum. You just go, show your card and you are in.
It’s also a great way to discover new museums and attractions. If you don’t like it, you just leave. No money lost.
This discount card has so much to offer that it’s impossible to see everything. However, it makes it a lot easier AND cheaper to see almost everything!
Get the most out of your Stockholm Card
buy a Stockholm Card
for 24, 48 or 72 hours. It is activated the first time that you use it. From all the times I bought it, I have learned that it pays to plan your trip well.
Suppose you go to Stockholm for three days, and while viewing this web site or reading a guidebook you found six museums that you definitely want to see.
That’s too much for one day. But... you can do it in two days, so it’s best to buy a Stockholm Card for 48 hours. Use the third day of your stay for a long stroll or shopping. If you need to use public transport on that day, you just buy a regular bus or metro ticket.
There are reduced prices for children (7-17 years old). Infants are free of charge anyway.
