Navigating The Port of Stockholm

The cruise quays at Stadsgården.

The Port of Stockholm encompasses a large area, providing services to many vessel calls during the busy summer season.

Cruise ships will use one of the cruise quays or moorings around the city, either close to Stockholm’s Old Town, Gamla Stan, or just a few miles away near the commercial port area.

Of primary concern to cruise visitors is the location of their dock with relation to major attractions in Sweden’s capital city. If you are not sure which location your ship will call on, check our cruise calendar.
