Citypass Stockholm: is it worth it?

When visiting Stockholm, we recommend the Go City Pass Stockholm, which gives you free access to many museums, activities and some public transport.

To help you make sense of it all, we explain below how the pass works, where to buy it and, of course, our opinion.

What is the Stockholm Go City Pass?

The Stockholm city pass is very simple to use: your ticket gives you free access to many of Stockholm’s museums, as well as to certain transport and activities around Stockholm, including cruises to visit the archipelago. Simply present your pass at the entrance to museums, buses and boats.

Note that since the beginning of 2023, most free museums have become paying museums, so the pass will help you save money during your stay. We were pleasantly surprised, as most of the museums we wanted to visit were included in the pass.

Here are just a few examples of the museums and attractions included in the pass:

  • Museums: Vasa ship museum, Nobel museum, Skansen open-air museum, Royal Palace, photography museum…
  • Transportation: Hop On Hop Off & City Sightseeing Stockholm multi-stop sightseeing buses take you directly to the sights of Stockholm. Please note that the public transport network (bus, metro, etc.) is not included in the pass.
  • Boats: multi-stop tourist boats, for example to the Museum Island on Djaurgarden Island.
  • Activities: kayak rental, SkyView, under-bridge cruises,Stockholm archipelago (summer and winter)…

You can opt for a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5-day pass.

How can I make the most of my Stockholm Go City pass?

The price of the pass is degressive according to the number of days, the most interesting in our opinion being the pass 2 (around 50€/day) or 3 days and more (around 40€/day).

➡️Pour To give you an idea, we made the following visits in 3 days, museum ship Vasa (170 SEK), open-air museum Skansen (245 SEK), the Nobel museum (140 SEK), the Royal Palace (190 SEK), the Museum of the photography (197 SEK), museum Viking (189 SEK), cruise below decks (355 SEK), SkyView Stockholm (170 SEK) and multi-stop buses and boats (370 SEK)

➡️Coût 3-day pass: SEK 1,461 (€123)

➡️Coût total cost of activities without card: SEK 2,026 (€170), a saving of €47 per person, enough to buy a good restaurant or a souvenir to take home from Stockholm!

To ensure that you get the most out of your pass, we also recommend that you do the following at least once a year minimum 2 museums per day (or to visit 3 museums on the same day, for example on Djaurgarden Island, which are located next door) and to use the Hop On Hop Off buses/boats, as well as to take part in at least one activity (cruise, kayaking…). We therefore advise you to prepare a schedule.

Where can I buy a Stockholm city pass?

It’s very simple: you can buy your ticket directly online. It’s a digital ticket you can download onto your phone.

The price declines according to the number of days, and you can opt for a 1, 2, 3, 4 or 5-day pass. A reduced rate applies to children aged 6 to 15.

Is public transport included?

Public transport (metro and bus) is not included in the Go city pass.

We advise you to use the multi-stop buses/boats, which are easily identifiable and will take you to the city’s main tourist attractions and points of interest.

Stockholm city pass our opinion

We usually use this type of package when we travel to European cities. In Stockholm, if you’re well organized, you’ll easily get the most out of your pass.

As far as we’re concerned, it’s saved us a lot of money and kept our days full. If you’re visiting Stockholm in winter, there are plenty of museums to keep you warm.

Here are 3 final tips:

  • When planning your stay, bear in mind that some museums close early (4 or 5 pm).
  • Make good use of the Hop On Hop Off buses and boats to get around Stockholm, and you’ll save on public transport journeys.
  • Cruises operate differently from other activities, as you have to go to the ticket office in the morning to book your cruise. In very high season, there are very few places available. Even if you don’t go on a cruise, you’ll get a good return on your pass.

For easy access to the main points of interest, we recommend the Norrmalm district (today’s city center) .

We wish you an excellent trip! Don’t hesitate to leave us a quick note or 5 stars below, to tell us if you’re planning this trip, to ask any questions you may have, here or on Instagram, we’ll get back to you with great pleasure.
