Planning Your Visit

  • When to go?

    Swedish winters can be pretty bleak so it's worth avoiding them if you're not a fan of short days and snow! Temperatures hit their balmy highs between June and August, though they bring with them higher attraction ticket and hotel prices. If you're on a budget and don't mind mild weather, then the blooming spring makes May the best time to visit for sightseeing!

  • How many days?

    Most of Stockholm's attractions are located within a small area, and could be covered within 3 days. That said, many of the bigger museums are extensive and eclectic enough to warrant a full day, as does Drottningholm Palace, so you could easily fill a week. Also note that many of the museums are closed on Mondays.
