Stockholm is a city of contrasts. Trends in music, design, fashion, and technology are born here. Hip bars and world-class restaurants are shoulder-to-shoulder with historical cafés and cosy neighbourhood pubs. Stockholm is simultaneously urban and close to nature, and water is an ever-present feature in this city where the lake and sea meet. The atmosphere is open, tolerant, and welcoming, and diversity and innovation are highly encouraged. Stockholm is a city for everyone.

Best Time to Visit

For many, the weather plays a big role when planning a trip and if you're among one of them, then you should plan your visit Stockholm from May to August. During this period, the weather is warmest and the daylight lasts longer. It is also in May that the flowers begin to grow and adorn the city beautifully. Although temperatures can sometimes drop by night, so make sure to bring a sweater or a jacket. However, if you don't think warmer weather plays such a big part, the winter is really beautiful in Stockholm, but it does get extremely cold from December to February. If you like snow, Christmas lights, hot chocolate, and gingerbread cookies, this is the best time to visit Stockholm.
