December 4, 2017 • 1 min read

On the 25th of November, #Stockholmsjul was inagurated and the city is now dressed in one million Christmas lights. Oh, the joy! Here’s what’s you need to do when visiting Stockholm this Christmas.

Visit Skansen
During bigger holidays, Skansen really shines on as the star that it is. The Open-Air Museum, located on Djurgården, is the perfect place to see how the Swedes have celebrated Christmas throughout decades. Read more about it on Skansen’s website.

Go on our Stockholm Christmas tour
To get the perfect introduction to Gamla stan (the Old Town) and hear all about our Christmas traditions in Sweden, why not join our walking tour Christmas Spirit? It includes Christmas songs, history and a yummy glass of glögg (mulled wine).

Go ice-skating in Kungsträdgården
In the middle of the city center lies a big skating rink, surrounded by Christmas decorations and music. This is as cozy as it gets! The ice-rink is open every day of the week until 21.00 / 9PM, except 24th of December when it’s closed. You can rent your skates on spot for a small fee.
