Christmas Markets In Stockholm,Göteborg and Skåne
Christmas is a magical time. In December, Christmas markets fall into the “must do” category, with their steaming hot mulled wine, home made Christmas sweets and beautiful handicrafts. Malmö will benefit from Copenhagen, and Tivoli Garden is a must on the Danish side of the sound.
In Gothenburg the whole town will be glowing in lights in their ambition to be the Christmas Town on the west coast of Sweden. The Christmas lane stretches from Liseberg amusement park, past Götaplatsen, along the main boulevard Avenyn all the way to the central harbour. Many of the illuminations will remain lit over the New Year holiday.
Cross the bridge and besides Malmö visit Helsingborg with the markets at Sofiero Castle, Vrams Gunnarstorp or Fredriksdal to mention some of the best, as I see it.
In Stockholm you can experience these markets by taking boat trips to Drottningholm Palace or Utö in the archipelago, or stay and enjoy the Christmas spirit in the city.
