One of Stockholm`s most visited attractions and impossible to miss is the living museum of “Riddarholmen”.
Together with “Gamla Stan”, it constitutes the very heart of the history of Stockholm and Sweden.
The buildings on the island tell this history, from the Greyfriars' monastery to the magnificent palaces of noblemen to the courts and offices of today.
From here, you have the possibility to stroll around the island and enjoy our shared cultural heritage.
Located in Birger Jarl Square you will find two tactile bronze models that show what Riddarholmen looked like around 1620, with relics of a defensive tower and walls, and during the glory days around 1750.
