Stockholm Christmas Markets 2020
Whether you enjoy a traditional or contemporary Christmas, Stockholm has something to offer you. Visit a Christmas market, have some glögg and ginger bread and go shopping under the beautiful Christmas decorations that light up the city every year
Stockholm boasts no less than six Christmas Markets throughout the city, ranging from the classic to the contemporary. They’re traditionally held during Advent, meaning most will wrap up before Christmas Eve; the Pink Christmas market closes on the 21.
There are several Christmas Markets dotted across the city. Boutique design shops sit alongside quirky cafes and galleries. Winter is a great time to go – the water ices over around the city and it takes on a special romantic feel. Outdoor ice skating, stunning shop window displays, and traditional Swedish hot spiced wine (glögg) all addto the festive atmosphere so it’s a perfect setting for shopping and a long weekend break.
Stockholm is a beautiful city of 14 islands connected by bridges and SoFo on the Island of Södermalm
Old Town’s Christmas market
For a genuine Stockholm Christmas, the Old Town’s Christmas market is a must.This is the most famous, and most traditional Christmas Market in Stockholm. it´s located in the heart of the Old Town at Stortorget square (close to the Royal Palace). The little red stalls sell Swedish Christmas sweets, smoked sausages, reindeer- and elkmeat and other Christmas delicacies, glögg (mulled wine) and a range of Swedish handicrafts and decorative arts of high-quality workmanship.
Open daily between 11 AM and 6 PM, from November 20:th until December 23:th.
Skansen celebrates all traditional Swedish festivals and Christmas is no exception. Visit the annual Christmas market and buy delicious treats or beautiful Christmas gifts. Or just enjoy the great ambiance. Open every Saturday and Sunday from 1st Advent until Christmas.
Christmas at Rosendal
In this beautiful garden you will find seasonal food, flowers, wreaths, breads and pastries. Premiere evening is on November 24. On December 18 there will be a light show and a large fire when the sun sets.
Each year during the second week of December, the Pink Christmas Week takes place in the heart of the city. All of the gay bars and restaurants host special theme nights and parties.
stop by the STOCKHOLM CENTER FOR ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN (Arkitektur- och designcentrum) to see their annual gingerbread house competition (all month long). The competition is split into three categories: architects, bakers and children. Probably the best smelling museum in the world (at least this month)!
During the weeks leading up to Christmas, it is traditional in Sweden to eat a special Christmas smorgasbord called julbord. It is a buffet that is laden with Swedish holiday dishes… like a variety of pickled herring, smoked salmon, gravad lax, meatballs and glazed ham. Many restaurants serve julbord this month, though a neat way to experience this is on the dinner cruises
The Scandinavian City on the Water, Stockholm surprises visitors with its many charming and clean waterways, slick design, and gay-friendly locals.

Gay Map of Stockholm
Being gay is such a non-issue in Sweden that Stockholm doesn’t really have a “gay area” — the gay clubs are everywhere, and gay restaurants and coffee shops are dispersed throughout downtown, old town, and even the suburbs.
