It’s where Stockholm was founded in 1252 and is one of the best-preserved medieval city centres across Europe. There’s a lot to see and do around Gamla Stan, making it a must-visit for anyone who books return flights to Stockholm. There are great options for dining, drinking, and shopping, particularly along the Västerlånggatan and Österlånggatan streets. Gamla Stan is also where you’ll find many famous landmarks while visiting Sweden on flights to Stockholm, including Swedish Parliament, the Museum of Medieval Stockholm, and Stortorget.


Skansen holds the title as the world’s first open-air museum. It’s located on the island of Djurgården east of the city centre. Skansen is set up like a village and explores what rural life was like in Sweden before the Industrial Revolution. Explore farms and homesteads to view artefacts and chat with costumed actors who demonstrate what Sweden was like a few hundred years ago. There are also seasonal activities to enjoy depending on the time of year you book cheap flights to Stockholm. Attend summer concerts with traditional music and festive Christmas markets in December.

The bus travels from each of these airports to Stockholm Central Station.

What should I pack for Stockholm?

The clothing you should pack all depends on the time of year you book airfare to Stockholm. Shorts and t-shirts are good for the warm summer days, but make sure to bring along a pair of jeans and a jacket too since temperatures dip to about 15°C in the evenings. Pack layers if you book tickets to Stockholm in spring or autumn. Temperatures range anywhere from about 5° to 17°C during the day, so be prepared with jeans, jumpers, boots, a lighter jacket, and a heavier coat. Be prepared for cold weather and some snowfall when you book airfare to Stockholm between December and February. Warm clothes such as pants, jumpers, scarves, hats, boots, and warm coats are essential for the Swedish winter.

Pack sunscreen no matter what time of year you book tickets to Stockholm. The sun is strongest in summer, but it’s also possible to get a sunburn in winter when sunlight reflects off the snow. Finally, you’ll need to bring along a plug adapter for your holiday to Stockholm. Sweden uses the Europlug, which works with type C and F power points.
