Celebrate Christmas in Stockholm

Preamble :

Have a merry holiday in the Swedish capital.

Stockholm is a magical city to experience Christmas. Whether you enjoy a traditional or a contemporary holiday, Stockholm has something to offer you. Visit a Christmas market, or enjoy beautiful Christmas carols at one of the many concerts taking place. Have some "glögg" with gingerbread cookies and go shopping under the beautiful Christmas decorations that light up the city every year. Fill up on Swedish meatballs, pickled herring, and other Swedish delicacies at a traditional Christmas buffet.

And a week after Christmas Eve Stockholm comes alive again, as we wave goodbye to 2022 and welcome 2023 on New Year's Eve.

'Tis the season

Get into the spirit of Christmas in Stockholm. Enjoy a spectacular and glitzy Christmas show, or fill up your pantry with local delicacies found at one of the city's many Christmas markets.
