Add To Plan

Departing the pier aboard your motor coach and first venture to Fjällgatan. Pause briefly here to snap photographs of impressive views encompassing eight of Stockholm's 14 islands before enjoying the scenic drive to Old Town, where your discovery of Stockholm's Jewish history begins.

Upon arrival, follow your guide on a walking tour through the narrow cobbled streets, passing amongst other sites, the Royal Palace and Stockholm's first synagogue, founded in 1790.

Afterwards, rejoin your motor coach and travel to the Jewish Community's Conservative Synagogue. Also known as the Great Synagogue, it was built in the ancient Eastern style and inaugurated in 1870. The synagogue seats up to one thousand congregants, making it as impressive in size as it is in appearance. A memorial to the victims of the Holocaust is engraved on the wall leading from the entrance of the Great Synagogue to the Jewish Community office building on Wahrendorffsgatan 3. Carl XVI Gustav, King of Sweden, dedicated it in 1998. It records 8,500 victims who are relatives of Jews residing in Sweden.

Continuing on, you'll make your way to the Jewish Museum for a guided tour. Founded in 1987, the museum is one of the only Jewish museums in Scandinavia. View the history of the Swedish Jews and their cultural contributions in art and literature, as well as their customs in the synagogue and the home.

With deeper understanding of Jewish history, learn more about the other aspects of Stockholm with a brief sightseeing tour aboard your motor coach, which soon returns you to your ship.

Please note: As this excursion involves walking over uneven surfaces, it is not recommended for guests with walking difficulties and is not available for wheelchair guests. It is recommended that guests dress in warm, layered clothing and wear flat, comfortable shoes. The order of sights visited may vary. The Jewish Museum is closed on Saturdays.
