Need help planning 4 days in Stockholm


We are a group of 13 including 3 young children (ages 9,4 and 2), 3 couples in our 30s and our parents in their 60s visiting Scandinavia for the 1st time this July. I need suggestions on how to plan 4 perfect days in Stockholm. We bought the 72 hour Stockholm card which we will be picking up from the Arlanda airport. We love the outdoors and also want to cover all the major highlights of the beautiful city for 3 days and perhaps devote the 4th day to explore the outskirts (suggestions?) or the archipelago. Pls share your suggestions for a 4 day Stockholm itinerary.

"4 perfect days", that's quite a tall order :-)

Since you're widely spread age wise it's a bit tricky to accommodate all tastes. But here are some ideas, in no particular order:

- Gamla Stan (Old Town) a must for all ages, think the young ones could appreciate it as well with its medieval feel.

- Royal Castle and the changing of the guards (which is in the Old Town): kungahuset.se/royalcourt.4.367010ad11497db6c…

- Skansen open air museum: picturesque little houses, children zoo and more: http://www.skansen.se/en/kategori/english

- Wasa Museum: http://www.vasamuseet.se/en/

- Gröna Lund amusement park: http://www.gronalund.com/en/

- Tekniska Museet, good fun for all ages: http://www.tekniskamuseet.se/1/start_en.html

- ABBA museum if you're in to ABBA: http://www.abbathemuseum.com/en/

- City Hall tour: …stockholm.se/the-city-hall/…

I think you should prioritize a trip to the archipelago as well, lovely scenery. A must in my book:

A few things to get you started at least :-)

Thank you, this overview really helps me get started! Do you recommend the Drottinghalm palace and the Djurgarden?
