The usual thing to do during midsummer for most of us is to head to Sofiero or Fredriksdal and spend the day there. This year, of course, will be quite different. But if you feel like not staying indoors and stepping out, here is information that is good to know:
SOFIERO: Even though there will be no celebration, the park and the exhibitions at the castle will remain open on Midsummer Eve (19th June) and Midsummer Day (20th June) between 10 a.m and 6 p.m. The regular entrance fee of SEK 120 will apply. If you have the Culture Card, the Summer Culture card or the Sofiero Year Card, you can enter for free. Read more here : https://sofiero.se/event/midsommar-pa-sofiero/
FREDRIKSDAL - No celebration, but the area will be decorated for midsummer. So maybe a picnic plan sounds good? Open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on both days. Read more here: https://fredriksdal.se/event/midsommar-pa-fredriksdal/
