Celebrate midsummer in Stockholm

Midsummer, probably the best-loved and most evocative of Swedish traditions, is typically celebrated in the countryside. But whether you'd rather experience a traditional celebration or party hard in town, there's still plenty to do in Stockholm on Midsummer's Eve. We guide you to the midsummer celebrations out in the city's parks, the city centre and out in the Stockholm archipelago. Dance round the maypole, enjoy pickled herring with a shot of aquavit or make it into a proper night out at a nightclub. This guide applies to midsummer in Stockholm in 2019.
