The Christmas lights of Stockholm – #Stockholmsjul

Things to do in Stockholm

It’s that time of the year again! The time that Stockholm puts on its most beautiful decorations and shows itself to the world. Let’s see what to expect from this year’s #Stockholmsjul!

This week is your chance to already get into the holiday spirit, absolutely for free. How can you do that? By attending the ceremony which will lead to the turning on of the Christmas lights in the Swedish capital.

The event will take place on Saturday, the 25th of November, at 15.00 in Brunkebergstorg, near Sergels Torg. At the inauguration, there will be singers and other surprises in a guaranteed holiday atmosphere. Also, you will also get the chance to find out more about the streets which will be decorated. Want a head start? Have a look here at the map showing the chosen places.

About one million LED lights will be used this year, on more than 40 streets and squares in Stockholm. There are going to be even more streets and lights decorated this time comparing to the previous years. Check out this video, to see some of the decorated streets from last year.

#Stockholmsjul is the project jointly run by the City of Stockholm, City i Samverkan and the real estate owners in Stockholm City. Even more information is available here (sv).
