During such unusual excursions, visitors will walk on the roofs of old buildings. It’s worth noting that no special physical training is needed to participate. Having listened to instructions regarding the safety measures, you can start your observation of the roofs. Females need to remember that wearing heels during such an excursion is prohibited. If you are in a mood for something extreme, but still not ready to walk on roofs, visit one of the “mystic tours” and get acquainted with the most charming Stockholm ghosts. If the panorama of the city from the roofs doesn’t impress, you can go even higher and fly above Stockholm in an air balloon.
