A remarkable way to learn more about Långholmen’s history or to take a much-needed pause from a conference is to book a guided tour of the former prison.
From Crime to Chains
Join a captivating guided tour of Långholmen. Hear and see the former manor house, which became the first spinning house in Stockholm and how the island developed to Sweden’s biggest and probably most famous prison. You’ll visit the museum and the exhibition From Crime to Chains where your guide will tell you what hard prison life was like. Bellman, L.O. Smith, Bildsköne Bengtsson, A. Nobel and many other more or less famous faces will emerge along the way. You’ll have the opportunity to enter a genuine cell but your tour will be ended in freedom, in the only preserved exercise yard of its kind.
A guided tour is suitable for a conference group or as a prelude to a party and can of course be booked in English. We’ll be happy to arrange a drink before or after the tour.
