Fall Break in Stockholm

Publish date: 11 November 2020

Every fall, as the days grow shorter and shorter, Swedish school children get a week off from school during a fall break (or Höstlov, as its called Swedish). The fall break is a way for children to charge their batteries during a week in late October/early November (depending on the year) as we inevitably race towards the darker months of the Swedish school year. So visiting Stockholm during this week you'll probably notice that many museums and attractions have special and exhibitions activities for kids. In other words, a perfect time to visit us, if you're going with the whole family.

For more things to do all-year-round, please see our guides Stockholm for kids and The teenager's guide to Stockholm.

Since 29 October, there are stricter general guidelines for Stockholm in order to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. Read more.
