When walking down the main street in Old Town you will come across this... street. We decided it is a street only because it has a name It is really more of a sidewalk. But it is fun and quirky nonetheless.

You can't miss this narrow little alley way in the Old Town as it's become a popular quirky tourist attraction so there are giveaway photographers and people getting selfies to identify it. It is what it is: a narrow thoroughfare connecting 2 parallel streets. Go...More

If you blink you will miss it. It is one a few narrow street/alleys ways in Gamla Stan neighborhood in Stockholm. Very narrow, always crowded by tourists and picture taking is the occupation of the moment. Worth a visit if you could find it. We...More

Wasn’t looking for Mårten Trotzigs Gränd, however, it was easy enough to spot due to tourists taking photos in the alley, good luck with getting a photo without strangers in. Full of puerile graffiti, which is a bit odd, as don’t recall seeing it elsewhere...More

Yes it's just a narrow lane covered in graffiti but if you're already walking around the old town anyway, you might as well enjoy the fun in going up or down this lane. It's not the smallest in Europe - the one in the Czech...More

The narrowest street in Stockholm at just 90 cms. Unfortunately the walls are covered in graffiti which detracts from the laneway.

Mårten Trotzigs gränd is an alley in Gamla Stan (Old Town). It leads from Västerlånggatan up to Prästgatan. It has 36 steps and the width is only 90 centimeters. It has been a picturesque alley but now it has been smudged with graffitis.

Gamla Stan & Riddarholmen
Gamla Stan is Stockholm’s historic old town and home
to the Swedish Royal Palace. It’s the most central
island of Stockholm and accompanied by the small
island of Riddarholmen, mainly known for its famous
Riddarholm Church. Gamla Stan tends to be a bit
touristy at times but is definitely worth visiting:
take a stroll past the well-preserved buildings and
through the small (and also Sweden’s narrowest)
