30 Christmas markets around Stockholm (2022)

Every year when the first of Advent approaches, it happens. The longing for light, warmth and Christmas comes to me like a real popsicle. I want mulled wine, roasted almonds and straw decorations. It's simply time to start dedicating the weekends to Christmas markets! I really like both modern Christmas markets with art and classic Christmas markets with crafts, but most of all there should be lots of good food and sweets. Because if there's one thing you should do all the way into the Christmas cake, it's eating those things you only eat once a year.

As I've done quite a bit of research for the best Christmas markets, I thought I might as well write them down and save them for next year. Christmas markets tend to reappear year after year. The Christmas markets that I have selected are often a little outside of Stockholm, preferably in a castle or a manor house.

    Lots of good tips, have most written on my list too, just haven't had time to visit any yet. A cozy Christmas market is also there Enskedethe park's bakery, it is tomorrow 28 November. ( You can usually buy wonderful saffron buns there, for example. 🙂

      Glad you found some new ones! I will probably never get through them all – too few Advent weekends per year! 🙂
