Many agree on the fact that summer is the best time to venture to visit Stockholm since it during this season that the weather is usually not harsh and cold, but instead, it is warm and the daylight last longer. And, with this weather condition you can have more time to be into midsummer holiday festivities which is celebrated on the weekend closest to the 24th of June where the sun have the longest day and never seems to go down.

This is because the temperature during summer ranges at an average between 68 to 71 degrees Fahrenheit with the hottest weather taking place in the middle of July and very much unlike during fall and spring which becomes to be chillier. And, of course, during winter it is going to be extremely cold and which is ideal to only those who are interested in winter sports and to those who are out for a picturesque Christmas time fun.

In a sense, when you are out there for a tour this is just the right time to see more of what you can find in Stockholm. It is only from July to August that the tourist center is open. It is the time to see the world’s largest open-air museum in Skansen where tourist can have a taste of the traditional Swedish foods, witness dances, listen to remarkable Swedish folk songs, and on this midsummer have a great chance to witness Swedish culture in not what is in a day-to-day basis but in an extraordinary way.

Yet, if you have some other reason to consider in visiting Stockholm, such as perhaps, fare and room rates, and simply because you need to see a family or be on a business travel, summer may not be really good at all for you. This is a peak season, that it is anticipated rates will rise up as early as March when prices of airfare, hotels, and packages start to be more expensive than the winter. It is going to be different from September to November when after a busy peak season attractions shorten their hours and some even close, unless you brave the situation in exchange for a cheaper cost or for a better bargain. On December to February visiting Stockholm may be worth a trip with its Skansen Market and glogg wine with hotels and airlines offering deals for travelers who are willing to layer up, but because the temperature is freezing most visitors prefer not to be around there on winters.
