Christmas in Stockholm

Christmas in Stockholm

Christmas in Stockholm is a great opportunity to stroll through the streets of the city, see the spiers of cathedrals, hear the ringing of old bells, pamper yourself with Christmas shopping.

Features of celebrating Christmas in Stockholm

For the holiday, the Swedes set up a Christmas tree in the house, decorating it with tinsel, balls, flags, the walls of the dwelling with images of winter landscapes and kind brownies, and tables with tablecloths with Christmas motifs and candlesticks.

On the Christmas menu, as a rule, there is dried cod, salad with anchovies, onions and eggs, Christmas ham, homemade liver pate, pickled herring, pork sausage. And after the feast “appears” Jul Tomten (Swedish Santa Claus) - he gives out gifts and wishes everyone a Merry Christmas.

Special Christmas buffets (yulburd) in restaurants deserve the attention of travelers - here you can taste all Swedish dishes (salmon, tuna, herring, sausages from elk and deer meat, Christmas chocolates). So, for example, you can visit the hotel restaurant “Grand Hotel” or in a restaurant “Operakallaren” (located in the building of the Stockholm Opera House).

Entertainment and celebrations in Stockholm

It is recommended to take a ferry cruise to the ice archipelago to the Fjäderholmarna Islands (there are restaurants with Christmas “buffets”), but if you want to order “Christmas dinner” it is possible on the ferry itself.

After visiting the Astrid Lingred Fairy Tale Museum (Junibacken), those wishing to go to “journey” on a fabulous train (departure point - Fantastic Museum Square) - they will see the Kid and Karlson in the Vazastan area, and little trolls, Roni and robbers in the forest. In addition, they will be able to visit Pippi Longstocking on “Ville Upstairs”. And at the end “travels” you can drop by the museum restaurant to refresh yourself (if you wish, you can pre-order for a Christmas dinner with the corresponding entertainment program in the museum of fairy tales “Junibacken”).

You should definitely admire the Christmas windows of the old department store Noediska Kompaniet (it is a place of attraction not only for children, but also for adults).

Those wishing to go ice skating will be able to carry out their plans at the city skating rink in Kungstradgorgen.

Christmas markets in Stockholm

At the Christmas markets in the Swedish capital, you can get not only knitted things and candles, but also various delicacies - nuts in sugar syrup, homemade jam, peppercakes, red caviar delicacies, warmed up glogg with raisins and almonds.

Stortorget Square and Skansen Square delight guests with such markets (here you can watch how craftsmen make candles and bake bread, as well as try your hand at these matters), Sergels Torg and Kungstradgarden squares.
