Get to know sone of the most beautiful parts of the Swedish capital Stockholm through the "Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" films.
On a dedicated "Millennium" film locations walking tour, you can learn all about the famous books and films as well as their bestselling author Stieg Larsson who actually lived and worked here…
What is it all about?
Stockholm, and more precisely its trend district Södermalm, is the setting of the millennium trilogy novels The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played with Fire, and The Girl Who Kicked the Hornets’ Nest, all written by Swedish bestselling author Stieg Larsson.
In the early 2000s, all three novels were made into Swedish feature films.
What will I see?
Fans of either the Swedish or American movies, should not miss the dedicated 2-hour-tour Millennium Film Locations Tour in English, which takes place on Saturdays and Thursdays from July to September.
The tour starts in Stockholm's trendy hipster district Södermalm along some really beautiful cobbled streets and houses.
The first stop will be at Bellmansgatan 1 – the home of the main character, journalist Mikael Blomqvist.
You will then walk your way through all the other key film locations such as the Millennium editorial office, the characters' favourite bars and cafés, and of course Lisbeth Salander’s luxury apartment.
Added bonus: a stunning view of Stockholm from a hill top is included, too!
How much does it cost and how do I book?
