Christmas markets
Stockholm 2018

The LBA 2018 top 10 guide to Christmas markets from all over Stockholm.


Jul på Skansen

Skansen’s  Christmas market is meant to be the longest running Christmas market in Stockholm. The market takes place in Bollnästorget inside the animal park. It holds many stalls containing traditional Swedish workmanship, homeware, decorations and Christmas goods. There is also a food market that runs alongside it.


For many Sthlmers attending Skansen at Christmas is a stand out highlight of the year. It’s a magical and beautiful time of year to visit.



Jul på Rosendal

Julmarknad: 23rd Nov – 21st Dec, open 11-16

Christmas flavours and smells in the garden café, farm shop and plantation, Christmas arrangements and wreaths and warming fire in the fireplace. From Nov 23 – Dec 21st. Daily from 11 – 16.


Look out for their opening Christmas Evening, Nov 22nd with music, open fires and more delicious food. From 11 – 20:00


VinterLjus on 16th December promises to warm the coldest of hearts as it illuminates Rosendals with candles, light installations and pit fires. From 11 – 18:00.


Stortorgets Julmarknad

Gamla Stan is the classic tourist Christmas market in Stortorget. It is beautifully decorated and lit, just like something out of a fairy tale.


The market’s surrounding historical setting gives it a sense of historical importance. But, to be honest, there are so many other more interesting  and diverse markets to visit, but the setting of this one is what makes it worth a visit.


Julmarknad: 24 Nov – 23 Dec 2018, open 11 – 18:00


Zetas Julmarknad

Julmarknad: 17-18, 24-25 Nov, 10am 


A traditional Christmas market at the beautiful Zetas Trädgard. You can pick up everything from Christmas decorations, home-made food goodies, wreaths and handmade winter gloves, booties and sheepskin rugs.


Zeta’s Trädgårdcafe is also truly maginificent and the food is delicious. Very worth your while.


Eko Reko Retro Täby Julmarknad

Julmarknad: 8 Dec, 10a, Täby Park


Täby’s Julmarknad theme this year is Eko-Reko-Retro Christmas.


We love this market because it has a bit of everything! And, because it’s slightly outside of Stockholm it’s never as busy as some of the more popular Christmas events. There’s not just stalls of produce but also events and activities for kids and grown ups. Log throwing, Jul pyssel etc.


Enjoy their fantastic selection of street food, stalls and food trucks, too!

Claiming to be Sweden’s largest Christmas market at Sörmländska’s Taxinge Slott with over 130 of the country’s best craftsmen. Take time to go around and muse among their amazing, handmade products and solve the Christmas gift list on one and the same day.
