City Hall and National Day

by chaarvee

Hello,

I would like to visit the City Hall in Stockholm on the 6th of June. Will the City Hall be open on the 6th despite it being the National Day? What would the tour timings be on such a date?

Would any attractions be shut on this date?

Is there anything special to do on the Swedish National Day in Stockholm? Fireworks, etc?

Thanks

Hmmm I honestly can't remember if there's anything special going on that day (it's a newish holiday), but this food festival is going on that day: http://www.smakapastockholm.se/. There might be something going on at Skansen (www.skansen.se) but I'm not sure.

As for the City Hall, here's information about prices, tour timings, etc. http://international.stockholm.se/Tourism-and-history/The-Famous-City-Hall/Guided-tours-of-the-City-Hall/Public-tours/ but I couldn't find anything about them being closed so you could probably e-mail them and ask. In case they're close, at least the City Hall Tower will be open as of http://international.stockholm.se/Tourism-and-history/The-Famous-City-Hall/The-City-Hall-Tower/.

Thank you so much for your help!
I mailed the Stockholm Visitor Center and they informed me that the guided tours will run only from 9:30 to 12 every half hour!

Thanks! =)

Wow, that was quick!
No problem, that's what we're here for. It seems your trip is shaping up nicely :)

Yes, as already said, the Skansen open air museum is the place where most celebrations will be held. Their English page seems down at the moment but you can see things via this when it works again:

http://www.skansen.se/tema/nationaldagen-2010

Between 15-18 there will be music at a place called Galejan in the museum, and a lot will be by the much loved trubadour Evert Taube so that will be quite Swedish I'm sure. Between 7-8 p.m. the king and queen will participate in the national day celebration itself at the Solliden stage in the park (expect loads of people).

The 6 June is also the start of the Love Stockholm 2010 event leading up to the royal wedding:

Travel Tips for Stockholm

Strolling through S?dermalm - Orange Houses

by yooperprof

I found it very easy to spend time in S?dermalm - just wandering the streets, checking out neighborhoods, playing the urban "flaneur." It's an "up and down" area, with many hills and valleys and houses that stand proud and high above their streets. If you are a fan of the color orange - especially in its pastel varieties - you'll be greatly attracted to S?dermalm.

Stockholm Maps Online

by kanjon

If you, like me, have other accomplishments than sense of direction, this is a good way to get a grip of where you´re going.To find your way in Stockholm you can go to following adress: http://kartor.eniro.se/. Under the box "Var Område, adress eller ort", write the name of the street, streetnumber and name of city. Ex: Drottninggatan 21, Stockholm. Push "Sök". A map will appear in a few seconds. There, you can see location of street and metro-stations.

There is also other search possibilities on the map. If you click "Restauranger/Caféer" every restaurant/café/nightclub in the area will pop up, together with contact-info. "Nöje/Kultur", click it and theaters, museums and cinemas will appear. "Bank" is for banks. "Uttagsautomater" is for cash-dispensers. Click "Övernattning" and accomodations will show.The places (restaurants, accomodations aso) visible on there maps are not all available places, but most.

You can zoom the maps and print them. To print, push "Skriv ut".

An other map-site is http://www.hitta.se/MapPage.aspx. Here you write street-name, number and city in the "Var?" box and push "hitta!"

Churches Everywhere

by Ken_Weaver

Just go walk around the city and you will see the most beautiful buildings, particularly the churches. I am told that the national government pays for the upkeep or restorations of the buildings. Engelbrekts Kyrkan is just one example.

Hötorget at Sundays

by vec

On every Sunday and public holiday the normal street market at Hötorget changes into a flea market where you can find everything from clothes, jewellery to movies and old books.

You might also find really strange things here, I can't understand who would want to buy half used toothpaste tubes, lost keys or even empty batteries. But it's funny to walk around and see what people are trying to sell.

Changing of the Guards at the Royal Palace

by wadekorzan

From June to August, the guards at the Royal Pace are changed daily at 12:10 PM, except on Sundays when it is at 1:10 PM. At other times of the year, it usually happens just three times a week on Saturdays, Sundays, and Wednesdays.

If you want to have a decent view, you'll have to arrive a bit earlier. I found it very convenient to simply visit the Royal Apartments first and then leave at 12:10 PM--you then have a front row seat!

The ceremony at the Royal Palace in Stockholm takes about 40 minutes. It starts with the arrival of the coming guard (with the military band in front). Normally, the coming guard brings its own colors in the front. Then a parade for the colors starts. The new sentries march away and the coming guards change place with the leaving guards.. After that, the military band performs a concert which lasts about a quarter of an hour. When the relieved sentinels are back, both guards draw up for the final part of the ceremony. The leaving guard then marches off and the new guard troops the colours and the military band leaves the Outer Courtyard.

There is a fascinating webpage about the guards and the ceremony--Click here to go there.
