Stockholm’s Stunning Nobel Week Lights Are Back

It’s even bigger this year!

Last December we were very much in the grips of the pandemic, and so when the Nobel Week Lights illuminated Stockholm’s famous buildings it was a welcome distraction. The light displays were incredible, with a space-themed intricate display projected onto the walls of City Hall and other buildings lit up with gorgeous designs too.

Stockholm City Hall must have been the most photographed location in December, so we’re delighted that this year those amazing lights have returned! However, this year we’re also seeing different designs, and the Financial Council is hoping it will attract plenty of tourists to the city.


The Nobel prizes are given in front of a limited crowd, and this was a fantastic way of making every Stockholmer feel involved. Now people from across the world will come to Stockholm to feel that same sense of involvement in an amazing ceremony that honours human achievement. It will run from 4-12 December and, as the city gets ready for Christmas, it’s a beautiful sight on those long, cold Stockholm nights.
