This is a must see particularly if you like old architecture. I'd suggest an early morning trip if you'd like picture without hordes of tourists in the background. It's near enough to everything to make a special trip perfectly feasible.

We went on a guided walking tour through the narrow old streets of Gamla Stan and the Stortorget. Very interesting back stories on the history of some of the buildings.
