Stockholm is one of the most beautiful Scandinavian cities, spread out over 14 islands in Lake Malaren. Its grand public buildings, rich cultural history, museums, castles and an old town dating back to the 13th century are well contrasted by a host of trendy bars, world class restaurants, modern galleries and exclusive boutiques. Summer months from June – August are the best time to visit Stockholm. With daylight till almost 10 p.m. and temperatures around 20 degrees Celsius, this is also the high season and an expensive time to visit. March – May and September – October are cooler months with average temperatures of 9 – 10 degrees Celsius. Airfare and room rates will also be cheaper and if you want to avoid the busy season, the shoulder months of spring or autumn may be a good time to visit. Winters are harsh and the sun sets as early as 3 p.m. Visit in winter only if you are interested in winter sports or keen to enjoy a picturesque Christmastime in Stockholm.

Tips and tricks for visiting Stockholm

If you happen to visit Stockholm during the mid-summer holidays, you will find the city quiet as most locals head to the countryside to celebrate the break with family and friends. If you want to be part of the festivities, you should definitely visit Skansen, which hosts several traditional events such as binding birch wreaths, raising the leafy maypole, several games, and folk music and dance. If your itinerary allows time for the “non-touristy things to do, stroll along the water on Strandvägen, the most glamorous street in the city, visit the ultimate hipster Hornstull Marknad flea market, wander about at the Rosendals Tradgard,a plant nursery cum café in the heart of Djurgarden or discover a hidden part of Stockholm at the old paint factory, Fargfabriken, which is now a cultural feast of art, architecture, parties and club nights. Avoid staying at Gamla Stan where room rates and restaurant prices tend to be more than what they would be elsewhere in the city.
