All points of interest and attraction sites are open and available for you with no senseless restictions! Being a Card owner allows you to avoid spending extra money if you would like to visit at least several big museums.

Until When Can I Get The Card?

To save your money there are several price solutions for different number of days. Choose among 1, 2, 3 or 5 days stay and thus pay only for suitable period of time without extra costs.

Where can I get the city card and what is the price?

You can buy the Stockholm City Card in any information desk of the Swedish capital. The price depends on the number of days you will be using the Card for – one-day use costs 525 SEK (Swedish Krona), two-day plan goes for 675 SEK, three and five days plans have the price of 825 and 1095 SEK respectively.

It is quite possible that occasionally you can notice some discount offers – for instance, when signing up for the Member’s card from Ikea. Anyway, we do not recommend hoping for it because basically the card price is not supposed to vary during the whole year.

When To Get One

Firstly, the Stockholm Card is mainly recommended for those people who came to Stockholm to enjoy the sightseeing. They will not have to pay those annoying entrance fees and save some money. Purchasing the Card pays itself if your stay is short but eventful.

Stockholm has a big number of incredibly interesting attractions that have no comparable alternatives in the whole world. If you are an experienced tourist you know about them.

However, if you do not plan doing much sightseeing, then it is not a good idea to get one. For Instance, if you would prefer to discover Stockholm at a slow pace and visit only few sites per day, purchasing a Stockholm Card does not look worthy. That’s the reason it is considered to be a short term visitor’s discount.

The good news is that there are dozens of points in Stockholm where you can purchase the city card in case if you change your mind.
