New Years Eve in Stockholm

On New Years Eve Stockholm is usually covered with glittering snow and the pitch black winter night sky makes for a perfect backdrop for fireworks. Most Stockholmers spend New Year’s either at a party or at a dinner with friends and family. At the stroke of midnight we head outside to toast in champagne and watch the fireworks.

Some places where you´ll have a spectacular view are:

  • The street Fjällgatan, the beautiful walking path Monteliusvägen and the highest natural point of Stockholm; Skinnarviksberget.
  • The bridges Västerbron and Skanstullsbron.
  • Skansen: Traditional celebration all evening. Singing, dancing and fireworks.
  • Skeppsbron, Slottsbacken, Strömbron, Blasieholmen and Skeppsholmen towards the inlet, where the city's official fireworks will be celebrated this year.
