Are you longing for the good, old days? It seems the founders of Sjätte Tunnan does too. They have created a medieval restaurant that takes you back 580 years, right in the heart of Gamla Stan, Stockholm’s Old Town. At Sjätte Tunnan you'll travel back to 1435, the year the rebel leader and freedom fighter Engelbrekt Engelbrektsson was appointed Rikshövitsman or Commander in Chief.
If the medieval vibe still seems a little distant, Sjätte Tunnan offers you different forms of medieval entertainment, from belly dancers to conjurers and magicians. In terms of music, Sjätte Tunnan delivers tunes from fiddles, hurdy-gurdies and bagpipes. Staff dressed in fabulous robes serve authentic medieval mead for an authentic vibe!
