The story about the tour

Have you ever experienced Christmas in Stockholm? The falling snowflakes light up the Nordic winter darkness and the smell of roasted almonds hit you as you wander down the streets of Stockholm. The Christmas bells rattle in the wind, a choir is singing somewhere nearby. Has your Christmas spirit arrived yet? Get to know the Swedish way of celebrating this special time of year and what Christmas in Stockholm is really like.

During your walking tour of the cosy winter laden Old Town, you will learn about where the custom of placing advent candelabras in the window comes from, what is found on a traditional Swedish julbord, who the bearer of light is and what Swedish Santa Claus looks like. In other words – what Christmas in Stockholm is all about, and how the Swedes awaken their Christmas spirit. No Christmas walking tour would be complete without a stop to a local Christmas market, and it just so happens that the main square in the Old Town, Stortorget, has their very own (which we recommend to return to after the tour). Lucky us!

When the wintry breeze of Jack Frost’s breath hits your skin, we’ll make a stop inside, treating you to a taste of non-alcoholic glögg, or mulled wine, which will make you all warm and fuzzy inside again. And who can say no to a gingerbread cookie to dip in their mulled wine? As you sip your warm drink, you can close your eyes and imagine what most Swedes and locals are doing on a Saturday or Sunday afternoon in December. Now warmed up and prepared to brace the cold again, our search for Stockholm’s Christmas Spirit is complete. Can you feel it in the air?!

Please note: The majority of this tour takes place in areas where you will have to walk on cobblestones.

We suggest wearing warm and comfortable shoes and clothes in many layers since the majority of this tour is outdoors, walking at a slow pace and stopping at various sights.
