The Stockholm Pass tourist visitor card will allow you to discover over 60+ attractions and sights in the capital of Sweden and make the most out of your money and your stay in Stockholm.
In this article I will tell you in detail which attractions, museums and sights you can visit with it, the different prices for the Stockholm Pass, how to buy it online and get a discount and where to pick it up upon you arrival in Stockholm. Don’t miss out on the occasional available discount when buying online.
Attractions and Sights Included in Your Stockholm Pass
Top attractions in Stockholm are included (The Vasa Museum, The Royal Palace, entry to the Gröna Lund amusement park, the Nobel Museum, Fotografiska – Museum Of Photography – and Skyview for a good sight of the city from above). You can check all attractions included here.
By the way, in 2020 visits to Stockholm’s City Hall and Skansen are NOT included.
Another interesting thing for you who love being on the water is all the great boat sightseeing tours offered which were not covered by the previous Stockholm card. Among them you’ll find the successful “Stockholm Under the Bridges” or “Round tour in Djurgården” which will take you around the greenest oasis-island in the capital of Sweden. Make sure to come back and stroll along the island best natural sights like Rosendalsträdgård (an amazing ecofriendly hub which is a garden, a park and a cafeteria in the best Swedish design).
You will also be able to find extended tours to the island of Birka, the Viking capital island, or Vaxholm and to other destinations in the outskirts of Stockholm like Sigtuna – once Swedish capital city and one of the oldest cities in Sweden – and the Palace of Skokloster where this summer you’d be able to visit an exhibition about Jane Austen. If you are into art museums take the boat through the archipelago to the amazing Artipelag museum located at the island of Värmdö or if you prefer a shorter half day excursion there are boats taking you to nearly located Fjäderholmarna islands (just 25 min by boat from Gamla Stan / Slussen) where you’ll be able to treat you to the best smoked seafood and fish and walk around among glass blowers and other handicraft creators.
If you’d like to travel through the city and do not want to buy a public transportation card called SL-Access then you’d love the fact that the Stockholm Pass includes unlimited trips in special hop-on hop-off buses. The buses serve the city well and connect even the port of Frihamnen in case you are arriving on a cruise.
A Stockholm City Guide brochure will be available for you when buying the Stockholm Pass and shipping it home or picking it up at one of the delivery booths in Stockholm. You can check the Stockholm City Guide in PDF in advance here.

* Prices in SEK updated on January 2020. Euro, dollar and pound values may differ depending on the current exchange rate.
Where to Buy the Stockholm Pass and Get a Discount
The fastest and cheapest option to get your Stockholm Pass and the one I recommend is buying it at the official website where you can get discounts up to 15%. Remember that cards are valid during 12 months after the purchase.
As the physical Stockholm Pass no longer exists you will get an email with a QR code for your mobile phone upon purchase.
Although at first the price may not seem cheap you should bear in mind what visiting every attraction would cost you without the card. That’s why I think the Stockholm Pass is worth its money to get the best experience possible when discovering the fascinating city of Stockholm.
Pro-tip: buy your public transportation card upon your landing at Arlanda and use the cheapest way of traveling between Arlanda airport and Stockholm center to get to the city center.
