“Ring out, wild bells, to the wild sky.” When you hear the words from Alfred Tennyson’s classic poem, you probably think of Skansen (at least in Sweden), the city’s most famous place to celebrate the New Year in Stockholm. The New Year’s celebration dates back to 1895 and is a recurring tradition for many. And since it is also broadcast live by Swedish television (SVT), you actually celebrate the New Year with the entire Sweden.

Skansen organizes Stockholm’s largest public event on New Year’s Eve. On-site at Sollidenplan, you can view the whole city while enjoying a packed program with entertainment from some of Sweden’s most famous artists. At twelve o’clock, a well-known profile reads the New Year’s poem as usual, and then it’s just to continue the party as long as you can bear it.

Djurgårdsslätten 49–51, Djurgården


On Skeppsbron in Old Town, overlooking Stockholm’s inlet, you have one of the absolute best places to see fireworks in Stockholm.

Monteliusvägen, the beautiful and charming 500-meter-long walking path on the heights of Södermalm, has one of Stockholm’s best year-round views with Lake Mälaren, City Hall, and Riddarholmen. But on New Year’s Eve, the view rises another notch when the fireworks light up the sky. Gather your party, pack the champagne, get to Mariatorget, and then go up to Mariaberget. The reward when you get up to Monteliusvägen is breathtaking – made for welcoming the new year.
Monteliusvägen, Södermalm


Fjällgatan is another of Södermalm’s and Stockholm’s top vantage points, and many rank this cozy Södermalm street as the best place to look out over the city. You’ll find it a short distance from Slussen above Stadsgårdsleden. The panorama views are magnificent, and you get a total overview of Stockholm’s many fireworks.

Skinnarviksberget is a big favorite in the summer, but of course, this popular spot, Stockholm’s highest natural point, also delivers a high-class viewing experience in the winter. And especially on New Year’s Eve. Many happy celebrants gather here when midnight approaches, and it’s no surprise. You’re treated to splendid views over Kungsholmen and the rest of Stockholm.
