Sweden's festive Christmas markets
Whichever part of Sweden you happen to visit, you're likely to find an authentic Christmas market with plenty of high quality products that make ideal gifts. The handicraft tradition is strong in Sweden, and you’ll find everything from Christmas decorations and hand-knitted mittens to stylish jewellery.
Christmas-themed food and drink complete the experience. While wandering among the decorative stalls, make sure to enjoy the winning combination of a steaming cup of glögg (mulled wine) and a pepparkaka (gingerbread biscuit).
Here are a few of Sweden's best Christmas markets:
