Christmas in 2022

Cozy with Christmas in Stockholm

Here you will find Christmas activities in Stockholm!

In Stockholm, there is much to experience before and during Christmas. It is nice to stroll around the Old Town (Gamla Stan) and pop into a cafe and have a cup of hot chocolate, swedish glögg with gingerbread, go ice skating in Kungsträdgården, go to a Christmas market on the Main Square (Stortorget) in Gamla Stan and do your Christmas shopping on Queen Street (Drottninggatan). Yes there are a lot to do.

Head to Gamla Stan and the historic Christmas market on Stortorget, go ice-skating in Kungsträdgården, ride Strömma's boats and eat a good Christmas meal, listen to Christmas carols in town, book a hotel package where you get both an amusement ticket and hotel in the package and see a Christmas concert. Christmas in Stockholm starts with the opening of Stockholm Christmas 12 November 2022 when Stockholm's streets are lit up in fantastic Christmas lights

Below you will find a selection of Christmas coziness in Stockholm. All dates for 2022 are updated gradually.

A nice tradition in the Old Town where from 1 to 24 December you open a door every day at 18.15. (On Christmas Eve, the 24th door opens at 11.30). To know where to open today's door, a banner is hung in a window that says "here the door opens". A fun way to discover the Old Town. The hatch openings begin with a fanfare and then a piece of music and a poem or story are performed. This year, of course, with adjustments to the current situation.
