The Allemansrätten (The Right of Public Access) allows everyone to pick berries, flowers, and wild mushrooms, hike and camp, even in privately owned forests and fields (nature reserves and protected species excluded, of course). Just remember, this is a right that comes with a responsibility, so read up on the rules when you are planning your excursion.

The phrase “Let’s eat out” might not mean what you think. Swedes loves to eat outside, even when it‘s freezing cold. "You can always put your sweater on" is the motto!

If you love music, but are on a budget, check out the local churches wherever you go. Most of them offer public concerts for free all year round, but especially in November and December when they hold Lucia parades and Christmas concerts.
