The Norrbro

The Norrbro (“North Bridge”), Stockholm’s oldest preserved stone bridge, connects the two city districts of Gamla Stan and Norrmalm. It runs from the driveway of the Royal Castle(Lejonbacken) across the island of Helgeandsholmen to Gustav Adolfs Torg, crossing the Norrström, the main outlet of the Mälaren into the Baltic Sea. Under the central part of the bridge, on Helgeandsholmen Island, is Stockholm’s Medieval Museum (Medeltidsmuseet ).

Completed in 1807, the bridge was extensively renovated between 2007 and 2010, and was ceremonially reopened by Crown Princess Victoria in January 2010.
