A short bus ride will take you to the island of Kungholmen, where in the distance you will catch sight of the three crowns atop the imposing City Hall, beautifully situated by the shores of Lake Maelaren. The building was inaugurated in 1923 and is renowned for its architecture, murals, and mosaics, as well as for being the site for the annual Nobel Prize banquet. During your guided visit, experience the grandeur and spaciousness of its impressive Blue Hall and Golden Chamber and then enjoy the beautiful view from the garden.
Next, a short walk brings you to the pier where your motor launch awaits. After embarking, sit back and enjoy a relaxing boat tour on beautiful Lake Maelaren which winds through the inner city canals and around the islands of Kungsholmen, Langholmen and Reimersholme. Along the way, learn about the history of Stockholm while enjoying the narrow canals and leafy shorelines, and passing Karlberg Castle, gardens, recreation areas, beaches, residential areas and much more. This boat tour gives you a good look at how Stockholmers live and spend their free time.
Afterwards, rejoin your coach for a panoramic tour of the modern downtown and shopping districts, followed by a drive through Stockholm's historic Old Town before returning to the pier.
