We will be flying into ARN next week and staying close to the central train station.We have less than 2 days (mid morning Day 1 to early afternoon Day 2) to experience this lovely city so time is precious. That said, any critical feedback from someone familiar with the area would be greatly appreciated.
We fly in and share private transport into town. After dropping off bags, we plan to tour the Royal Palace (focus on Royal Armory and maybe Royal Treasury), then take the Rick Steve's self-guided walk through Gamla Stan. Afterwards we plan to take the ferry from Slussen to Djurgardens, walk to Vasa to tour (or should we take a subway?) We will then walk a bit around Skansen and have dinner at the Oaxen Slip there. How late do the ferries run to get back to Nybroplan? Is walking back from Djurgardens a feasible alternative?
On Day 2 we will tour City Hall and perhaps have lunch at Hotorgshallen. Then we will need to get back to head to the cruise.
Is it best to exchange currency at the airport or central train station or at a bank close to Radisson Blu Viking? Would the Stockholm card be a worthy purchase for time saving benefits or not? Are we hitting the highlights with our time limits? Thanks
