Overview

Easter in Sweden

Spring is in the air for this year's Easter time in Sweden and there's lots of fun to be had! It's all about witches, egg hunts, colourful feathers and chocolate.


Food at Easter (Påsk pronounced ‘pohsk’) in Sweden is all about sweets, sweets, more sweets — and of course a smörgåsbord at lunch time. For lunch, expect a lot of pickled herring and cured salmon, gravad lax. Easter dinner usually involves roast lamb and asparagus.
