The experience of entering Stockholm by cruise ship really is something to write home about. You’ll discover the true meaning of a “breathtaking view” as you sail through one of the world’s most unique natural landscapes - the Stockholm archipelago with its 30,000 islands, islets and rocks. And best of all, it still feels like something of an undiscovered gem.
The city itself is a bucket-list destination. Built on 14 islands surrounded by vast open water, Stockholm has a unique and unforgettable character. You might be in a cosmopolitan capital city but you’re never far from a picturesque park or other scenic walking spot. We have an impressive selection of historic sights and attractions, art galleries and museums - many within easy walking distance of one another.
Not to mention, our city is widely publicized as one of the world’s most dynamic, creative and exciting metropolises. Stockholm is the birthplace of cutting-edge fashion and design, a gastronomic hotspot with myriad bars and restaurants, and a capital of culture where music and art flourish.
Ports of Stockholm make the perfect choice for turnarounds. Situated in the heart of the Baltic region, there’s everything you need for pre- and post-cruise stays in close proximity, including first-rate hotels, frequent overseas flight connections and effective ground handling and tour services.
Among the world’s largest passenger ports, Ports of Stockholm provides facilities and services for ferry, cruise and freight traffic in Stockholm, Nynäshamn and Kapellskär. In a normal year, 16 million passengers pass through the ports, the majority of them sailing to and from Finland, the Baltics, Poland and Sweden’s largest island, Gotland.
Approximately half of all cruise liners visiting Stockholm each year call at Frihamnen. Stockholm Cruise Centre Frihamnen is a modern cruise terminal dedicated to turnarounds, with the Freeport Cruise Terminal equipped to accommodate high numbers of passengers simultaneously arriving and departing.
