Many of you may not have thought to visit here for the Xmas markets, but you can get an affordable break here to enjoy - and the accommodation is on a boat! Explore Sweeden and Scandinavian tradition this time of year.

Christmas Markets or Advent markets in Sweden are popular with locals and tourists alike and highlight many Swedish Christmas traditions, for example the consumption of glögg which is a hot spicy wine.

The Liseburg Christmas Market which takes place in Gothenburg is reputed to be the largest in Sweden with over 60 stalls and an open air ice rink nearby.

Outdoor stalls sell Swedish Christmas sweets, smoked sausages, reindeer meat, glögg (mulled wine), and a wide range of Swedish handicrafts and other gifts.

At least four Xmas Markets take place within the city area of Stockholm, namely Skansen, on the park island of Djurgården, where the Christmas markets date back to 1903, Gamla Stan, commonly known as the Old Town just south of the Royal Palace, in Rosendal Palace which is a little way from the centre of Djurgården and Kungstradgården, a large urban park near the tourist and shopping area.

About half an hour’s travel from Stockholm is Sigtuna, the oldest recorded town in Sweden which hosts two Christmas Markets in the Julmarknad and the indoor Xmas Market at the Steninge Slott.

The link seems to just go through to Ibis Gothenburg rather than Xmas market tour

Beware I've heard shopping in Sweeden is very expensive....

Dazzy, I was going to say the same thing, I seem to remember a beer being a silly price.

Have they found a new use for that prison ship ?

Seems too good to be true.

Mind you, I've done this crossing around October, and spent three nights on the ship.

I'd've paid a fortune to get off too! Rough crossing.

No check in luggage? What can you bring back in your hand luggage allowance?
