Stockholm does Christmas with a slightly more subtle hand than other cities but that just means that decorations aren’t quite as garish – and are instead a bit more sophisticated, quietly letting their style shine. And what shines more brightly than a Christmas tree? While you’ll find Christmas trees in just about every square and park in the city here are four we here at View Stockholm think are of particular note. God jul!
Just on the edge of Old Town, the massive Christmas Tree at Skeppsbron is said to be the largest real Christmas tree in the world. At 38 meters high and with 5000 lights and a four meter star at the top it certainly is impressive.
Walk out of Central Station and suddenly you’re in the midst of a stunning Christmas display. In addition to the Christmas market and gorgeous lights strung across the square the fountain at Sergels Torg is not just lit up but features several glowing Christmas trees.
In the middle of the giant circular fountain and park around which Karlaplan is built you’ll find a towering Christmas tree that take your breath away. Its charm lies in its simplicity – just white lights dotting the branches, which sparkle magically when the dark comes.
One of the more charming squares in Stockholm (with some excellent shopping on exclusive Biblioteksgatan, which is just off the square) at any time of the year Norrmalmstorg puts up a big, juicy, traditional tree than almost makes you believe in Santa again.
We here at View Stockholm hope you are enjoy our city’s Christmas trees!
