Visit Stockholm’s Medieval Christmas Market – December 2013

Glögg and smoked sausages at Stockholm’s medieval Christmas market – weekend break from £239 pp at Berns Hotel

Dotted with little red-roofed stalls brimming with Swedish handicrafts, you won’t fail to feel festive at Stockholm’s oldest and most traditional Christmas market (dating back to King Gustav Vasa’s reign in 1523).

Wander the cobbled streets of the Old Town’s majestic Stortorget Square, where the market has run annually since 1915, warm up with spicy glögg (mulled wine), and indulge in reindeer meat, smoked sausages or pepparkakor (ginger snaps). When gift-buying fatigue strikes, Berns Hotel is just a short stagger away.

In December, two nights’ B&B cost from SEK 2,487 pp (approx. £239 pp, two sharing) including a special festive buffet in its Asiatiska restaurant. Flights extra.

Call Berns on +468 566 322 00 (www.berns.se).
