Stockholm Christmas

Stockholm has a unique reputation among all other world capitals. Winter Stockholm has a look of a part belonging to a fairytale reality. Stockholm Medieval part always looks great, however in winter it becomes something specific. Maybe the reason is that amazing atmosphere that surrounds the old town market.

Turn into a baker

As for the Stockholm attractions we should definitely mention Skansen. Since 1891 Skansen has been the most fascinating open-air museum in Scandinavia. All sorts of Swedish architecture can be found here. Moreover, there are whole buildings not only preserved until now but still functioning! You just need to come in the last evening before Christmas and see yourself those schools, post offices and forging shops.

It the late December you can get to a nice Christmas market in Skansen. All people who wish to know what “Stockholm tourism” is about should definitely visit it. You don’t have to buy anything if you don’t really like shopping. You could try to bake a fresh bread instead. Looks quite challenging, doesn’t it?

Skansen market gathers more than thousand tourists daily. Patience will be very helpful since there will probably be queues, although it’s still worth coming.

When non-shoppers like shopping

Stureplan square in Stockholm will charm you even if you are an inveterate shopping hater. They say that the pleasure is related not to the things you pay for but to the shopping itself. Stureplan cannot be ignored in your Christmas holidays. There is no better attraction in the world that has this Scandinavian spirit.

After shopping you may go for ice-skating and have a great entertainment with your family and friends. It’s a very popular place where mainly foreigners come. This is why the skating rink is the most suitable place for making new acquaintances.

Spend your time with family

The museums of the Swedish capital are great for both young and adult guests. Anyway, there are also activities mainly oriented on parents and children. Tourists adore the circus of Stockholm so it would be fantastic if you go there. Great performers will prepare something really exciting. Your family will have so much fun! Children appreciate breathtaking performances and they will fall in love with Stockholm circus.

There are also ferry trips. Find a ferry near the Opera and go for a great tour around the area. But be careful – in a windy day it can be very cold aboard. But even if you are cold you may always ask the servicemen for a thick and warm buck skin. If the weather is nice and without snow you will enjoy really memorable landscapes of winter Sweden.

Fun for everyone

Let’s keep in mind that Stockholm is a Nordic capital and occasionally it gets really cold there. Low temperature is typically not annoying, however the wind is. When it’s windy in the street it could be a reasonable idea to stay inside.

You could go to the local escape rooms which are really popular among guests from all parts of the world. Exit Games, Questrooms and lots of other places are at your service. Experienced escapers may visit more than 2 dozens of rooms of that kind!

The National Museum and the Royal Opera suit well for an afternoon visit. At night it will be an awesome idea to relax in a local bar. There are plenty of them in the city center and in the Medieval town. Normally nightclubs of Stockholm look a lot like other such places in Western Europe. The prices can be rather high, however local beer is brilliant. Nightlife of Stockholm is very hectic. All you need is to go out and go along the streets. It’s not a big deal to find a nice place to stay.

See the whole globe from the Globe

The Sports Center in Stockholm has the shape of a large globe. There is no other ball in the world larger than that. In addition, you could enjoy a great view from the Sports Center viewing platform. The platform revolves around the Center and rises up to 130 meters! The entire city will be in front of you.

Don’t hesitate and select Stockholm as your Christmas holidays destination!
