A dark November evening wandering through Old Town's narrow alleys. Get down under the German church, steep stone stairs, darkness, moisture and slightly flickering candles. A guide that takes us back to the 16th century and almost scares the life out of the visitors. It's the right way to experience Stockholm's history, a ghost walk that starts in the mid-1200s until our days. Lars Åke

The ghost tour was very nice. Cullom, our guide, told the stories really well. But you should have good English skills, it is not always so easy to understand. We did the tour on our first day in Stockholm and got a brief overview of Gamla Stan, which is very helpful and nice.
