Christmas Markets in Stockholm

One of the best ways to get a sample of a country’s holiday tradition is to visit a local Christmas Market. Stockholm and its surroundings have quite a few to choose from. Here, you can taste Swedish seasonal delicacies, buy beautiful handicrafts and Christmas decorations, and – of course – meet Santa. Here are some of our favorites:

Christmas Market in the Old Town

For a genuine Stockholm Christmas, the Christmas market in Gamla Stan (Stockholm’s old town) 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 elk meat 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-6 pm.

A Christmas market is traditionally held at the Royal Stables on the first weekend in Advent. For four days, exhibitors from across Sweden will be selling the finest quality crafts. The stables, harness room and coach sheds will also be open all weekend. This Christmas market will feature work from around seventy of Sweden’s top craftsmen and craftswomen, with a wide range of unique Christmas gifts. Delicious festive treats will also be on sale.

Christmas Market at Skansen

Since it’s inception in 1903, the Christmas market at Skansen has become a beloved holiday tradition. Stroll around the stalls and booth and stock up on traditional sausages, cheeses, handicrafts, spices and essences, Christmas decorations, embroidery, leather goods, Skansen’s own handmade mustard, glass, bread and cakes, hand-knitted mittens, sugared almonds, tallows, honey, marzipan, crispbread, smoked turkey, jams and marmalades, candy, children’s books and masses of other irresistible items!
