Amongst monks, guilds and nosy neighbours 

 

Join the Medieval Museum in a city-walk and discover the early history of Stockholm.Along the narrow streets of Old Town, up on the facades and right among the cobble stones we find clues to life in medieval Stockholm. During our walk, we hear about the city’s residents and temporary visitors. We listen to stories of everyday life, festivities, piety and merciless punishment. And along the way we most likely will pick-up a few new dirty words. This walk in the Old Town is a long-running classic since 15 continous years.

The tour ends with a visit to Blackfriars’ cellar where some miracles are said to have happened.

The Blackfriars’ cellar

 

On a hill going down towards Österlånggatan (East Long Street) in the Old Town is a small, black iron door. Behind it are the cellars of the Blackfriars’ Monastery. People made pilgrimages to Stockholm and the monastic church of the Blackfriars to pray for healing and recovery. These cellars may well have been used as lodgings for the pilgrims. Nowadays the cellars form the only visible remains of the monastery, but foundation walls and cellars from the Middle Ages are in existence in the whole of the surrounding quarter of the town. Read more about the Blackfriars’ cellar.
