My husband & I arrive from California at the Stockholm airport at 8am on Friday 6-19 for a RS Best of Scandinavian Tour leaving Sun 6-21 @ 4pm. We will be staying in the same hotel where our tour begins....the Hotel Wellington at 6 Storgaten in the Osterman section of town. The RS tour itinerary mentions several walking tours and includes the Vasa Museum and the City Hall.
What do you suggest we see on which days considering that I think that Saturday 6-20 is the Midsummer holiday?
I know we will be jet lagged on Friday. We usually combat that by staying up until that night on the day we arrive in Europe.
We will both be turning 60 this year but we are fairly experienced travelers in good shape and we like to walk & see the sights.
We like museums but my husband is not crazy about crowds although it sounds like he may just have to deal with them a bit. :)
I know some things will be closed on Saturday - but will there still be Archipelago tours?
What other major tourist sights will be closed during the time we are there?
I am considering going to Skansen on Saturday - is this a good idea?
(When we made these tour reservations I had no idea about Midsummer holiday.)
Also - do you have any restaurant suggestions near our hotel?
Any helpful advice will be much appreciated.
