Christmas Markets in Stockholm
December in Stockholm is a great time to explore various Christmas markets (Julmarknader) around town. At Stortorget in Gamla stan (Old town), you'll find the city's most popular Christmas market where you can pick up a variety of porcelain ornaments, festive decorations, and wooden gnomes as well as dig into gingerbread cookies (pepparkakor), mulled wine (glögg), candied almonds, jams, and deli meats.

Stockholm's Old Town
Stockholm is spread out over many islands and on one of them is the old town, where you can find Stortorget. There are some old buildings here which remind me of the Flemish style somewhat. The square is very beautiful and especially at night time.

People-Watch in Gamla Stan
Take a (colorful) seat and take in your surroundings in Stortorget Square. Listen to street musicians, or have a coffee. It's a beautiful place to enjoy a break from the tourist shops of Gamla Stan.
