That’s the Stockholm Card. I was a little bit apprehensive to get it at first because at 795 Swedish Crowns, it’s really expensive, but it was really worth it. For our short trip, we wanted to cover as much ground as possible, and at the same time not spend too much time inside museums. Without much advance planning though, we just decided to visit the major sites, while being spontaneous along the way (“oh look, there’s the Nobel Museum! let’s go in!” “hey, that’s the Spritmuseum, we can get in there for free”).
Let’s have a look at all the attractions we visited in three days and the figures:
Transportation costs & tours and entrance fees
- 72 hour public transportation card – SEK 230
- Historic Canal Tour – SEK 160
- City Hall Tour – SEK 100

- Nobel Museum – SEK 100
- Nordic Museum – SEK 100

- Spritmuseum – SEK 100
- Skansen – SEK 150
TOTAL: SEK 1,325

Savings with the Stockholm Card: SEK 530
Verdict: WORTH IT!
