It’s all about timing. To avoid crowds and inflated prices, we recommend the period between high and low seasons when the weather is fine, places are still open and happy to welcome travelers, and you can explore a destination at your own pace. ShermansTravel experts call this magical time and space continuum the Sweet Spot.

When to go to Stockholm

Peak Season: May to September

Tourists flock to Stockholm during its gorgeous summers when 70-degree weather is common and sunlight lasts nearly 24 hours. Popular attractions extend their opening hours and hotels raise their rates. Word to the wise: many establishments close in July, a popular holiday month for Swedes.

Off Season: November to March

There’s no way around it: winters in Stockholm are cold and dark, temperatures rarely budge above freezing, and sunlight lasts for as little as six hours a day. Nonetheless, hotels are cheaper, most attractions are open, and, except around the holidays, airfares are lower.

Sweet Spot: April; October

While fairly brief affairs, spring and fall are excellent times to visit Stockholm, with crisp, but bearable, highs in the 50s. While not quite as cheap as in winter, airfares and accommodations are substantially lower than during summer months.
