Christmas Stories

We love our hometown, this is where we live, eat, love and find inspiration. Stockholm is a fantastic place during Christmas, so this time around we would love to share our favourite Christmas spots!

Christmas feast at


Beckholmsvägen 26
28th of November - 22nd of December
Open everyday

Christmas is all about traditions. You should eat at least one julbord (meal of typical food for Christmas) during the Christmas holiday, and a great place to do that is at Oaxen.

They serve only local ingredients from small producers, which makes for a classic Scandinavian Christmas feast.

Christmas has exploded at


Torsgatan 34
Open Monday - Saturday 17.00-01.00

Are you a Christmas lover? If yes - great. Because Christmas has exploded at Peppar. “Less is more” does not apply at this place, rather the opposite.

Come to eat exquisite burgers, fajitas and jambalaya, and be impressed by all the Christmas decorations!

Christmas fair in

Gamla Stan

2nd - 23rd of December
Open everyday 11.00-18.00

This Christmas fair is the oldest one in Swedens history - 173 years old! Talk about Christmas spirit..!

You’ll find all kinds of different goodies among the 41 sheds, such as caramels, ceramics, sausages and handcrafts. A perfect place to get your Christmas gifts!

Ice skating in


Monday - Friday 09.00-21.00
Saturday - Sunday 10.00-21.00

Even though it sounds lovely, you can’t just sit and cozy up inside all Christmas. So why not take your friends with you for some ice skating in Kungsträdgården?

It’s the perfect Christmas activity! Don’t forget to check out the famous Christmas decorations in the shop windows of Nordiska Kompaniet on your way home…

Eat saffron buns at


Kungsgatan 55
Monday - Friday 07.30-20-00
Saturday - Sunday 09.30-19.00

There are probably less people in Stockholm who hasn’t visited Vetekatten than those who have.

This famous bakery and café is almost one century old. In other words, they have had some time to learn how to bake the best saffron buns in town. And we’d say that they do!
