Free Walking Tour in Stockholm, Sweden

Travel tips tend to be large scale, sweeping generalizations.  For example, don’t miss Gamla Stan in Stockholm, no matter what time of the year.  They are good tips, and tips that I make (and follow for that matter) on a regular basis.  However, sometimes there are events that don’t always show up in your standard European trave guide.  Like this Sunday in Stockholm, Sweden.

That’s because International Tourist Guide Day is in Stockholm on Sunday, February 21st, 2010 and free Stockholm walking tours will be offered throughout Gamla Stan.  If you find yourself in Stockholm this weekend be sure to meet at 11:00 in the morning at Slottsbacken.  That’s the street next to the royal castle with the large obelisk climbing into the sky. You can’t miss it.

The free walking tours are sponsored by FSAG, the Association of Authorized Local Guides and the tours are completely free. The tours will focus on Gamla Stan and Riddarholmen, two areas of Stockholm’s Old Town and will be offered in several different languages.
