Skip the subway with our Stockholm walking map

Stockholm’s subway system is usually quick and reliable, but it isn’t always the best option for getting around the city on the cheap. For one thing, the cost of tickets can add up quickly, which means less money for your next fika. And as our handy new walking map shows, the distances between subway stops can be surprisingly small.

Let’s say you want to get from the Central Station to Gamla Stan. You could hop on the tunnelbana (subway) and use the green or red line to make the journey. But instead of paying for a ticket, navigating the escalators and waiting for a train, you could just walk – as our map shows, it’s only 14 minutes away on foot.
