On the other hand, take the serious option & visit the Nobel prize museum in the Old town.

There are many other great guided walks to do in Stockholm - ABBA walking tour, Stieg Larsson’s Millennium trilogy, ghost walks, Viking walks and even a walk that guides you to the best places to take photos.
