During a short-term touristic visit to the capital, The Stockholm Card is your door to funny activities and nature investigation. To sum things up, the card::

Until When Can I Get The Card?

The Stockholm card is valid for 5 days after the purchase day or for another number of days, depending on how long your vacation is and what price plan you have selected. Each plan lasts certain amount of days – one day, two days, three days and five days.

Where Do I Purchase the Card from and what is the Price?

The price policy is really transparent and fair – you pay correspondingly for the number of days that he or she spends in Stockholm. There are discount cards for one, two, three or five days – take any that suits better.

It is quite possible that sometimes you can find some discount offers – for example, when signing up for the Membership card from Ikea. Anyway, we do not advise counting on it since basically the card price does not vary throughout the whole year.

Who could need the Stockholm Card?

If you come as a tourist for sightseeing, it is reasonable to purchase one. It can save you some money at the end of the day as you will not need to spend anything on entrance fees for all the attraction sites you visit. It is the real deal for short term tourists coming to Stockholm as they can get many great things paying a fixed price.

Using a calculator and the Internet you can quickly compare the costs of using the card to the costs of traveling around Stockholm without the card. We are perfectly aware of the result.

However, if you have no plans for doing much sightseeingit is not a suitable idea to get one. For Instance, if you wish to investigate Stockholm without any hurrying and visit only a couple of sites a day, getting a Stockholm Card is not recommended. That’s the reason it is termed as a short term visitor’s card.

Luckily there are many places in Stockholm where you can obtain the card in case if you suddenly change your mind.
