Set your sights on Sweden this Christmas

Imagine snow covered rooftops, choirs serenading passers-by with carols and fairy lights sparkling in every corner of the country – Sweden is quite possibly one of the world's most picture-perfect places to enjoy the festive season in all its glory.

Walk the 'Lane of Light', the illuminated 3 km stretch of street that runs from the port to Liseberg amusement park. Take to the ice on nature's very own rink or show off your skating skills in the heart of Stockholm. And for an instant winter warm-up, sip on a steaming mug of glögg, Swedish mulled wine, or nibble on the famous gingerbread known as pepparkakor. For that added touch of luxury, dine in one of Gothenburg's five michellin-star studded restaurants or simply stop by one of the many cafes arming yourself with homemade lussekatter, the traditional Christmas time saffron bun.

Discover the overwhelming array of festive markets including Nordstan, Haga, Kronhuset, Gustav Adolfs Torg and best of all the Liseberg amusement park, Sweden's largest Christmas market. Five million fairy lights transform the area into a magical winter wonderland, earning Gothenburg its crown for one of the best places to spend Christmas.
