New Year's Eve in Stockholm

On New Year’s 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 pull on thick jackets and pants over our fancy party clothes and head outside to toast in champagne and watch the fireworks.

The restaurants have special New Year’s menus and packages instead of the usual menu and we recommend making reservations if eating out on the 31st.

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.
