Stockholm, Sweden

Stockholm Main Sites

This route covers some of the main sights of the city, with lots of folks out walking and running. Much of the route is along the water and over bridges to two islands. Start your run at Gustav Adolfs square, next to the Royal Opera House. Head to Gamla Stan (Old Town) and pass Riksdagshuset where the Swedish Parliament is situated, as well as, the Royal Palace — His Majesty The King’s official residence. Enjoy the views of the idyllic Gamla Stan while you run south towards Södermalm island. Head west along the waterfront all the way to Långholmen, which is a former prison island, and currently one of Stockholm’s green oases. Cross the bridge to Kungsholmen island and head back east. You will pass another main sight, Stadthus (City Hall), which is also the venue of the annual Nobel Prize banquet. Complete the loop at Gustav Adolfs square.
