You will visit the great North Gate at the end of the longest bridge in Sweden in those days, the North Bridge. You will see the first place of executions where the Gallows were located, you will see the old wall surrounding the city and you will walk on the oldest street in Stockholm.

We will tell you the story of the Royal Castle, how it all started and the problem with the present Royal Castle not having any towers. You will find out how it was to buy food, cloth and other items in the old days and why you could be punished for not kicking someone in the behind.

The Audio Guided Tour "Murder and Death, the Hangman and other wretched persons" take place during the medieval period i Stockholm. You will visit 10 spooky places in the Old Town where we will tell you stories of what has happened there by an audio file for each place.

Stockholm during the medieval time was a place where women could be sentenced to go around the city half naked carrying large cannon balls of stone before they were thrown out of the city. The average age for a man was less than 40 year and for a woman around 30, people were punished for petty offences and it smelled anything but nice.

You will visit hell and meet the Hangman. We will tell you about how the waste was handled and you will see the most haunted houses in the Old Town. This is not for the faint hearted but it will give you an insight into a very different Stockholm than the present one.

Hi, my name is Anders and I will be your guide today.

Beneath this text you will see a map with all the 10 locations for the Audio Guided Tour. Each location has an audio file (mp3 format) directly under the image. For this Audio Guided Tour it's best to start with location 1 and end with location 10, the journey will be in the right order then. You can play the audio files as many times as you want to during 6 hours after you logged in for the first time.

The image (jpg format) above each audio file has sometimes markings that you can't see in the real life, they are only for references and to make some of the info on the audio file more clear (these markings on the images are not available at the demo version). It's a good idea to stand at the location so you see what the image shows. That's it, let's start.
