Stockholm’s best viewpoints to see the fireworks


New Year’s Eve festivities in the capital – lookouts, activities, and a festive dinner

Fireworks have an especially magical effect when there’s water around that reflects the light and the explosions – a clear New Year’s night in Stockholm when the water lies still like a mirror is an unforgettable experience that you shouldn’t miss out on! Read a list with all the best spots to see this spectacle right here!

Fireworks in Stockholm

Admire the beautiful fireworks over Stockholm city. You enjoy the best view from Skeppsbron, Slottsbacken, Strömkajen, Skeppsholmen, Skansen, and Slussen.

Best viewing spots in town

Of course, this official show isn’t the only fireworks extravaganza in Stockholm. When the clock strikes midnight, all of Stockholm is lit up by fireworks. If you want to enjoy a good view of it all, we suggest you head to some of the highest spots in Stockholm – Fjällgatan, Monteliusvägen, and Skinnarviksberget, all on Södermalm – or the bridges Västerbron and Skanstullsbron.

Celebrate New Year’s at Skansen

The most popular and folksy way of ushering in the new year is to head over to the open-air museum Skansen. Enjoy music, songs, a recital of the classic poem Nyårsklockan, and a one-of-a-king view over Stockholm at Sollidenplan in Skansen. Celebrating New Year’s Eve here goes back all the way to 1895 and the annual festivities are even broadcast on Swedish TV! We advise you to book your ticket to this extremely popular party in advance.

New Year’s Eve cruise in the archipelago

Welcome the new year aboard the classic archipelago excursion ships M/S Gustafsberg and S/S Stockholm.

Onboard, a festive luxury dinner with six courses and a glass of champagne as apéritif await you! To round off the culinary extravaganza, order the drink package that pairs each course with carefully selected drinks. At the strike of midnight, you’ll enjoy a view over Stockholm and the fireworks that just can’t be beat! But make sure to book your spot in time as this is extremely popular.

If you’re part of a larger company of 15 to 30 guests, there’s even the option of booking a special salon, the so-called “herrsalongen” aboard the archipelago boat S/S Stockholm.

Bid farewell to 2019 and welcome 2020 in the best way possible in Stockholm!
