Things to do in Stockholm in October

October 17, 2017 • 2 min read

October might not be the most fun month of the year, but as a matter of fact, there are several fun things happening in Stockholm in the end of October. Either the city of Stockholm treats the kids (and their parents) who’s on autumn break well, or they just feel bad for us all in the rainy weather. We don’t care why – we love it anyways! 

Kids’ fun at the Royal Palace
The children will have an extra good time at The Royal Palace in Stockholm between October 28th and November 5th. The palace ask for their help in a treasure hunt to find money that Eskil, Gustav Vasa’s loyal servant have hidden away in strange places. Meanwhile, parents can gaze at the gorgeous interior and learn all about the royal family of Sweden.

Visit the Riddarholmen Church
The church on Riddarholmen is not only the only preserved medieval church in Stockholm – it’s where the former Swedish kings and queens have been buried to rest in peace. Goosebumps! From October 28 – 29th, and 31st to November 5th the church is open for you to explore.

Ulriksdal’s Autumn Market
Let the crispy Autumn air fill your lungs as you walk around the beautiful gardens of Ulriksdal Palace. From October 28 – 29th the grounds will turn into a big marketplace. Shop souvenirs in forms of jewellery, candles, ceramics and other crafts.

Feminist Autumn market
Fight the patriarchate at the Feminist Autumn Market! By shopping at this market you will make an effort for creative women (and non-binary people) who can spread their works for a bigger crowd. Shop posters, ceramics, jewellery and vintage. The market takes place at Folkungagatan 44 on October 29th, 11.00 – 17.00.
