5 Of The Best Places To Watch The  Colourful Winter Sunset In Stockholm

There are loads of amazing vantage points in the city.

Stockholm’s winter sunsets are so beautiful that they look like something from a movie set. Pinks, purples, blues and oranges stretch across the sky and welcome the evening. You can spot these beautiful colours from anywhere in the city but there are certain vantage point from which the winter sunset is best viewed, and here are just a few. Make sure to wrap up warm and stay safe if you’re heading out into to watch the sun go down at any of these beautiful spots.

1. Skinnarviksberget

Where could be better to watch the sunset than Stockholm’s highest natural point? Lots of people go to Skinnarviksberget in the Summer to watch the sunset and sunrise. However, there are fewer people in the Winter, so if you’re brave enough to venture out in the cold then you are unlikely to be crowded at this spot.

2. Monteliusvägen

Monteliusvägen is a spot very popular with tourists, but at the moment the city is not seeing the usual winter influx of tourists so it will be less crowded. It’s one of the best vantage points in the city, which is why it’s so popular with those visiting the city. It’s not far from Skinnarviksberget but it’s much easier to reach, especially in the icy winter months.
