Follow Doctor Glas' footsteps through Stockholm with this audio walking tour

It is an unusually hot summer in Stockholm when Doctor Tyko Gabriel Glas is writing down his melancholic reflections of the futility of life in his journal. He is trapped in a moral dilemma and the only way out seems to be…murder?

In this self guided city walking tour we will follow the footsteps of one of Hjalmar Söderberg’s most well-known characters as he walks the streets of Stockholm with a heavy heart. The tour starts by the apartment where Hjalmar Söderberg imagined that Doktor Glas lived and had his medical practice, and continues towards Kungsträdgården via Helgeandsholmen and Old Town.

Your smartphone is your guide on this walking tour! When you buy the tour you will receive an email with login information and a link to download the app which will show you the way. Go to the start point of the tour, open the app, put your headphones on and head out on your Stockholm adventure! As you walk, old photos, animated videos and other surprises will pop up on your mobile screen - to make it possible for you to interact with the story in the spots where it takes place.
