Guide to Cruise Ports and Terminals

Stockholm Cruise Port

There are three main cruise ports in Stockholm.  They are:

  1. Skeppsbron - located in the Old Town and used only for smaller ships.
  2. Stadsgarden (StadsgÄrden) - is located near the city centre and used by larger ships
  3. Frihamnen - is used for "turn-around" cruises (i.e. cruises departing or ending at Stockholm)

Very large vessel must sometimes anchor offshore at Nynashamn, 57 km from Stockholm.

Visit to determine where your cruise ship will dock.

Make sure to enjoy the approach to Stockholm as your cruise ship navigates through an archipelago of 24,000 islands.
