Christmas in Stockholm
Stockholm is a city which cannot be compared to any other. Winter Stockholm has a look of a part of some fairytale world. The best way to see what Stockholm Christmas Eve smells and looks like is to visit the Old Town. You will be surprised with its look and with the old market located there.
Bake your Christmas bread
There is a famous place in Stockholm called Skansen. This famous open-air museum was built in 1891. Fans of Swedish architecture will be satisfied. What is more, some of the old buildings still work! Schools, bakeris, forging shops and post offices are the most interesting in the last evening before Christmas when everyone can get inside and take part in funny competitions.
It the late December there is a great Christmas market in Skansen. It’s impossible to imagine winter Stockholm tourism without this fabulous place. You are not feeling like buying souvenirs? OK, but what would you say about baking Christmas bread in the 19th century bakery? Looks rather challenging, doesn’t it?
Hunders of guests come to the market in Skansen every day. Please, don’t get angry and don’t flee away from queues and crowd and you will feel the festive ambience.
Shopping for everyone
You will turn into a true shopper if you visit Stureplan square. People love walking around and watching interesting things. Stureplan cannot be ignored during your Christmas holidays. There is no other place in the world which has this Scandinavian ambience.
After shopping you could go for ice-skating and have a great fun with your family and friends. The skating rink visitors are mainly foreign travelers. Therefore the skating rink is an ideal place for striking up new acquaintances.
As a matter of fact, Stockholm museums are a nice option for people of all ages. However, there are also some activities aimed mainly on families with children. Foreigners like Stockholm circus so it would be fantastic if you go there. Each show there perfectly suits for watching it with family. Your children will have really much fun! Stockholm circus is a must-see place for any family tour.
There are also ferry trips. They start the tour near the Opera building and then get to the small islands. But please keep in mind that windy weather is not good for that. They offer buck skin to all tourists, so don’t be shy and ask any of the employees about that. When there is good weather a ferry tour is a perfect solution.
Have fun in Stockholm!
Let’s keep in mind that Stockholm is a Northern capital and sometimes it is frosty there. Even if the temperature seems to be bearable the piercing wind can ruin all plans. Wind is something which can make you give up and vote for some indoor activities.
Young tourists quite often recommend visiting local escape rooms saying their nice design and plot. Exit Games, Questrooms and lots of other escape rooms are waiting for you. Experienced escapers may visit more than 2 dozens of places like this!
Evening or afternoon could be devoted to the Royal Opera or the National Museum. Stockholm nightlife is one more amusing attraction for the tourists. The Stockholm old town is just full of bars and clubs. Typically nightclubs of Stockholm look just like other such places in Western Europe.
