Things to do in Stockholm in April 2018

March 26, 2018 • 2 min read

The long Winter is finally coming to an end, and we are so grateful for April finally being around the corner. If you’re coming to Stockholm in April, here’s a few things you should tick off your bucket-list.

Stockholm Culture Night
For one night and one night only, Stockholm turns purple and stuffed to the max with cultural events. Museums, art institutions, performances, and concerts are all offered for free and restaurants offer a discount. This year, Stockholm Culture Night takes place on the 21st of April. We at OURWAY offer two of our Stockholm tours for free; Gamla stan in English and Östermalm in Swedish. First-come-first tickets are found at Stockholm Visitor Centre, Kulturhuset throughout the 21st.

Department 2018
For everyone who loves electronic music, Department 2018 will be a festival of their kind. It takes place two times this Spring: club-night at the 6th of April at Berns, and with a block party the 26th of May at Slakthusområdet. Tickets and information about who’s playing can be found on their website.

Stockholm Liquorice Festival
Do you have a sweet tooth for licorice? From 14th to 15th of April, a 2000 square meter big licorice festival takes place in Annexet, Stockholm. Indulge in tastings, inspiration and licorice filled entertainment! Tickets can be bought here.

Celebrate Valpurgis Night
Valpurgis, or as we say in Swedish – Valborg – is the official celebration of Spring. We say goodbye to Winter and welcome the Spring with everything it has to offer. This is celebrated through lightning bonfires across the city. Our favorite? The one out on Riddarholmen, that’s usually lit around 20.30.

Go on a tour with us
Springtime is the perfect opportunity to go on a walking tour with us. It’s not too cold and it’s not too warm, and the city isn’t flooded with visitors. Djurgården is just about to be blooming, so why not try our Delightful Djurgården? All of our public, walking tours in Stockholm can be found here.
