Advent markets Stockholm

One of the best ways to learn about a country’s Christmas traditions is to visit a local Advent market. There are several to choose from in Stockholm. The most famous place is Gamla Stan on the island of Stadsholmen, where the biggest Christmas market in Stockholm is held on this occasion.

Not far behind is the island of Djurgarden , where the royal gardens of Rosendal are dotted with craft stalls. Those who are more sporty can skate under the open sky at the ice rink in the Kungstradgarden park.

Here you can taste Swedish seasonal delicacies, buy beautiful handicrafts and Christmas decorations and, of course, meet Santa.

What to see in Stockholm?

There are many nice sights in Stockholm. Scandinavian architecture is quite different from ours, so there is much to discover.

Stockholm City Hall

The town hall dates from the first half of the 20th century. It is known all over the world because the Nobel Prizes are awarded here every year (except for the Nobel Peace Prize, which is awarded in Norway). Guided tours are organized in the town hall. They always start on the hour, the first leaves at 10:00, the last at 15:00.

Royal Palace

In the historic part of the city called Gamla Stan, there is a huge royal palace. The ruling family does not live there, so the interior is accessible to visitors. It is open every day in November and December from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. You can buy tickets on the spot and in advance online.

Riddarhuset (House of Nobility)

You can also learn how the Scandinavian nobility lived in Riddarhuset, a smaller palace of Dutch architecture. You can come for a tour from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m.
