How to say "Merry Christmas" in Swedish:
God Jul and (Och) Ett Gott Nytt Â

Gothenburg the Christmas city
Feel festivity levels soar with a winter break in Gothenburg, only a short two-hour flight from London. Mixing a warm sense of tradition with contemporary Swedish design, highlights of Gothenburg the Christmas city include...

Liseberg Christmas market Decorated with five million twinkling lights and 700 Christmas trees, Liseberg Amusement Park’s Christmas market is Scandinavia’s biggest. It features 80 rustic market stalls selling arts and crafts, as well as seasonal foods such as traditional Swedish marinated herring, roasted reindeer served by Sami reindeer herders from Lapland, dressed in their fascinating and highly-decorated traditional costumes, marzipan pigs and traditional mulled and spiced wine, known as glögg. There’s also a sparkling ice skating rink for onlookers and participants alike to enjoy and Christmas sing-alongs to add to the festive vibe.

Other Christmas markets in the city...

Gothenburg boasts many more Christmas markets, including the traditional market at the Crown-house building, dating from the 1600s. Step back in time as you browse Swedish handicrafts sold by artisans dressed in costumes from yester-year, and be sure to visit the old chocolate works next door too, offering the finest festive confectionary. Open from 1 to16 December (closed on Mondays).

Walk the Lane of Light (or hop on a vintage tram!)

Walk the unique 3 km illuminated trail through the heart of Gothenburg (from 7 December to 6 January). Set off on a magical meander from the central harbour all the way to Liseberg Amusement Park’s Christmas market. Combining innovative lighting design with a love of Christmas the old-fashioned way, the city architects and light designers have created this year’s Lane of Light around the theme of love. And, if you don’t fancy walking, why not take a ride on the beautiful Ringlinien vintage tram instead?

The tradition of St Lucia
Witness a delightful, candle-lit Swedish national tradition: every year ( 13 December), towns across Sweden hold Lucia concerts - including, of course, Sweden's second city, Gothenburg, the capital of West Sweden. The city's chosen Lucia (Queen of Light) is duly crowned with a halo of candles, and her coronation is marked by a majestic concert held in candle-lit churches across the city, including the incredibly atmospheric Vasa Church. Choral pieces sung by the Lucia troupe of seven girls bring divine enchantment to the packed churches and tears to the eyes of those enjoying the spectacle.
