Stockholm Pass vs. Stockholm Card

Updated: September 3, 2023

This post provides details about each of the tourist passes available in Stockholm and how these services can save you a lot of money.

We include information about prices, how to use the pass, and more.


There are currently two different tourist passes available in Stockholm, and they each provide discounts on a variety of popular attractions and activities in the city.

This overview provides an explanation of how these services work, how much you can expect to save, and the best way to use them to save money.

Each pass includes admission to dozens of different activities for a specific amount of time (1, 2, 3, or 5 days).

The way it works is that you’ll pay one flat price for the service and every attraction included will be covered by the pass.

Depending on how you use a tourist pass, you can save up to 50% off general admission prices.

In order to get the most out of it, you’ll have to use it as much as possible while it’s valid.

Although there are some pretty expensive activities included with these services, it is important to note that you’ll need to use this pass for at least 3-4 attractions in order to start saving money.

What this means is that these tourist passes are best for people who plan on seeing and doing a lot of different things during their visit to Stockholm.

These passes typically include at least one bus tour, one boat tour, famous landmarks, and several interesting museums.

Each service is available either as a physical pass or a mobile pass, which means you can actually just download their app onto your mobile phone and use it as your pass to get into each attraction like the Swedish History Museum, and Nobel Museum.

All-inclusive passes must be used on consecutive days after they have been validated.

Does the Stockholm Pass include public transport?

The Stockholm Pass offers access to top attractions, iconic sights, and historic sites, but it doesn't cover Stockholm’s subways or other public transport.

Where can you buy the Stockholm Pass?

You can purchase the Stockholm Pass at various visitor attractions, or you might find options on the Go City app or social media platforms.

Where can you buy the Stockholm Travel Card?

The Stockholm Travel Card can be acquired at locations like the Stockholm city hall or perhaps through trusted sources like the Go City all-inclusive pass website.

Things to Consider

Anyone planning to be in Stockholm for a week or more should keep in mind that the 3 & 7-day travel cards are an excellent way to save some money on public transportation prices.

If you’re not interested in taking a cruise and you just want an easy way to get across the water, the ferries included on this travel card could be a great alternative to the hop-on-hop-off boat excursions in Stockholm.

With so many different forms of public transport in the city, this is a great way to get around that won’t cost much at all.

Travel cards can be purchased with the Stockholm Pass, but there is no additional discount when you buy them that way – it’s just easier to buy both of them together than separately!


If you’re not interested in any of the visitor passes listed above, you may want to consider a combo package instead. 

There are a few bus tour companies in Stockholm that provide deals on multiple activities when you purchase the tickets together.

This section provides details about how to save money with these bus tour combos.

Bus & Boat Combos

Almost every Stockholm bus excursion company offers a combination package that includes both their bus service and a boat tour. 

These boat excursions are usually hop-on-hop-off outings, allowing you to move around the city by water with ease and see all the most popular landmarks.
