    Always pack a sweater

    by XKuger Written Mar 11, 2010

    Luggage and bags: If you are planning to use the public transport from airport to the city you have to have convenient rollon luggage, I originally through of taking the train but found it maybe cheaper to get a cab.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Stockholm is cold.. most of the time. My sister who lives there says so, she always suggest no matter the season always bring a Jacket / sweater. Even in summer if you sit out in the shade you will feel cool unlike new york

    Toiletries and Medical Supplies: Nothing special most stuff is available here at Euro prices...

    Photo Equipment: Most defintly bring your stuff, electronic is very, very expensive. Even if you need a small things that you have have forgotten such as a Euro converted plug, it can set you back 20U$+ which back home I can get at a local $ store for a couple of bucks at max.

    tini58de and sim1 gone with the wind.....

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Be sure to pack windproof clothing - even though the sun might shine, the wind makes it quite chilly! This might apply to all seasons, because when we visited in May we experienced both sunny (and warm) and sunny (and chilly - aka windy) periods!

    Bring a windbreaker

    Pretty bridge

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Look at this picture--it looks so peaceful, and so pretty. What the pictures does not show is the wind! I was freezing when I took this picture in May. Stockholm is situated on 14 islands between the Baltic Sea and the huge lake called Lake Malaren. I was freezing every time I crossed a bridge because I just did not have a light windbreaker, and I would recommend to bring one!

    Sunset and sunrise in Stockholm

    Miscellaneous:
    The daylight hours (hours between sunrise and sunset) vary a lot between the winter and summer months. People may expect to see the midnight sun during the summer, because they are in Scandinavia. But this is not true for Stockholm, because you are not far enough north in the country.

    In December you will only have 6 hours to enjoy the day. The sun will get up around 8:30 in the morning but is already setting again before 3 o'clock in the afternoon and that doesn't leave you that much time to do some sightseeing.

    In June it is a totally different world, and I love this time of year. Around the longest day (21 June) you will experience the long looooong days! There are 18,5 hours of daylight during those days, the day seems to last forever. The only disadvantage is when you are a light sleeper, as the night only last 5,5 hours.

    Average hours of daylight:
    Jan 6,9
    Feb 9,3
    Mar 11,8
    Apr 14,5
    May 17
    Jun 18,6
    Jul 17,9
    Aug 15,5
    Sep 12,9
    Oct 10,2
    Nov 7,7
    Dec 6,1

    Unpredictable Weather

    by Amelia24 Updated Sep 7, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from Gondolen

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Even if you visit Stockholm during the summer you should make sure to bring a set of warm clothes. You never know what the weathers going to be like. One day it can be really hot, the next super-cold and rainy.

    Mostly its warm and sunny though, but you can't always count on it.

    Packing List

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: Sweden is a cold place. But of course, I come from the desert in the Southwestern U.S. We went in May & I was very cold. I was glad to have my leather jacket, scarf, hat, gloves & boots. I'm sure from June-August you dont' need such heavy gear. But the rest of the year, be prepared for cold!

    Photo Equipment: Lots of color & black & white film. tripod would probably be awfully bulky to carry around, but you might want it for your purposes.

    Clothing/Shoes/Weather Gear: WHAT TO BRING
    Sweden's weather is unpredictable, so plan for any eventuality. In summer, even in the Arctic North, you could have hot sunny days that call for shorts and T-shirts, or it could be one of those summers when the sun never appears and sweaters and rainwear are needed. Winters can be very cold, but this is 'dry' cold, which is not uncomfortable. Still you should take a heavy coat and warm headgear as well as sturdy footwear for the slushy streets.
