Alley of Marten Trotzig

 

Home > Stockholm Travel Guide > Alley of Marten Trotzig


The narrowest alley in Gamla Stan is more like a staircase between houses. Located between Prästgatan and Västerlånggatan, not far from Stortorget, it became a place which every tourist should see.


Marten Trotzig was a German merchant, who bought some properties on that street in 16th century. He became one of the wealthiest burghers in Stockholm, by trading iron and copper. 
The street appears firstly as “the Narrow Alley Stairs”, but the name of reach citizen was used on a map from 1733.
