A city of islands filled with an assortment of architectural and cultural gems, Stockholm offers an incredible landscape and a host of unique attractions. Summer months from June – August are the peak tourist season in Stockholm. Enjoy average temperatures of 65 – 70 degrees Fahrenheit and long days with the sun setting as late as 10.00 p.m. Participate in several festivals such as the Midsummer Festival celebrating Swedish culture, Taste of Stockholm festival of food, and Popaganda, a pop / rock music festival, amongst many others. Expect airfares and room rates to be at their highest during this time. The fall and spring seasons are chillier, with average highs barely reaching 50 – 60 degrees Fahrenheit. If you don’t mind the cool, crisp weather, visit between April – May or September – October, when the crowds are less and room rates are more reasonable. Winters are brutally cold; average temperatures fall as low as 20 – 25 degrees Fahrenheit, and days are much shorter, with the sun out for barely a few hours each day. However, this is a great time to get attractive deals on flights and hotels. You can also enjoy the year-end festivities, quaint Christmas markets, and the beautiful lighting and decorations if you travel to Stockholm around Christmas or New Year’s.

Stockholm is fairly big and it’s not possible to explore the entire city on foot. However, some of the popular tourist attractions such as Gamla Stan (Old Town), Djurgården island park, and the Fotografiska museum are within a couple of miles from each other. Walking is a convenient option to visit these places. For reaching other parts of the city, here are the various options for transportation.

While fares are not regulated for the city rides, the highest unit price for most taxis will be 290 – 390 SEK.
