Buses, metro and commuter trains

Stockholm’s public transport system covers the entire Stockholm region. Bus tickets can either be bought from the Tourist Informations centres at the quay, or from a ticket machine before boarding. Ticket machines at the ports and at some city locations accept credit cards. A one-hour ticket (one zone) costs SEK 40. The SL Tourist Card entitles the holder to unlimited travel on public transport in and around Stockholm.

Bus and boat sightseeing/shuttle

Boat and bus sightseeing tours depart every 30 minutes for guided city tours, and shuttle busses stop regularly for further exploration on foot. Passes are valid for 24 hours.

On foot

Walk along the quayside from Stadsgården to the Old Town, guided by a blue line marked on the ground. Walk duration approx. 20 minutes. From Frihamnen, we recommend taking a bus or taxi.

  • Taxi

    Thanks to tax breaks and other incentives, a high proportion of Stockholm’s taxis are eco-vehicles. Other than that, the usual rules apply: only use approved taxis with yellow number plates and always ask for the price in advance.
