ABBA- The Walk!

People often wonder why Stockholm doesn't take more advantage of its association with ABBA... like Liverpool does with the Beatles and Detroit does with Motown. Heaven knows that there is a market! For a few years now there has been talk of an ABBA museum, but the plans keep getting delayed. Now the Stockholm City Museum is doing something about it. The museum, responsible for the highly popular Stieg Larsson Millenium Walking Tour, will be offering a guided tour of the city this summer with ABBA as the theme... called ABBA: The Walk.
They are starting with tours in Swedish on May 19th (Saturdays) and then they will be offering tours in English every Friday and Saturday at 4pm in July, August and September. The tour is about 2 hours long and costs 120 SEK per person. Tickets can be purchased at the museum or on Ticnet. They also have a special city map with all ABBA related places marked out for sale at the museum (40 SEK).
The Stockholm City Museum is located at Slussen, just a 10 minute walk from the Rival Hotel. And who knows... maybe the hotel (owned by Benny Andersson and the venue of the gala premiere of Mamma Mia The Movie) will be on the tour?
And for a little inspiration:
