What's the temperature like in Stockholm during April?

The temperature reaches around 9℃ during the daytime in April, falling away to 3℃ at night. The UV index will be moderate at this time of year, so not something to worry about for the average person. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's worth wearing a broad spectrum SPF 30+ sunscreen and UV-blocking sunglasses. Remember that bright surfaces, such as water and sand increase UV exposure.

Does it snow in Stockholm during April?

Possibly. There's a chance of snow during April but not as much as you might think. Check the local forecast before you leave home so that you can pack appropriate footwear and clothing.

Does it rain in Stockholm during April?

April is typically the driest month in Stockholm. On average, there will be 5 rainy days during the month, amounting to 0.7mm in total. That's almost nothing at all, therefore rain isn't something we think you need to consider. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.

Perfect day trip from Stockholm: Drottningholm Palace

After North Sealand Denmark and Falun, Stockholm was the third stop on our UNESCO World Heritage Journeys of Europe roadtrip. It was our first time in the city and to say that we were pretty excited would be an understatement. The first thing that you appreciate about this city is the feeling of being surrounded by water on all sides. I can’t think of a modern capital in Western Europe that has the same feeling of freedom and tranquility. Spread across 14 islands, we discover a city that is a...

The Museum of Medieval Stockholm

Stockholm has a rich medieval history, much of it still preserved in Gamla Stan, Old Town, making it one of the best places to visit in Europe for travellers who are interested in this period of history. It was because of this rich history, that the Museum of Medieval Stockholm was missed. For nearly three years the museum was being renovated. Finally, the museum opened its doors to the public once again.

A quick guide to Gamla Stan, Stockholm

Stockholm is one of those medieval cities that still retains its heritage. Much of it due to its Old Town. Gamla Stan. Cobblestone streets. Medieval buildings. Shoulder-width alleys.The small island at the heart of Stockholm is alive with history. As you walk towards the island stop and drink in the Royal Castle with its imposing Baroque style. While not really living up to my view of fantasy and imagination, mostly because the castle is bereft of all towers, it still cuts an impressive...
