Local | Safe and nice New Year in Stockholm

By on December 29, 2015
New Year celebrations in Stockholm shall be both safe and nice. Slussen will be, as in previous years, a fireworks free zone on New Year’s night. No fireworks allowed in a closed off area and even car and public transport are affected. City of Stockholm offers instead celebration Stockholmers on a large firework.

The celebration continues on New Year’s Day when the city invites to free organ concerts in City Hall.

The fireworks free zone at Slussen means that you may not bring your own fireworks up in a closed off area. The initiative comes from the City of Stockholm, the Stockholm County Council / traffic management, police and Greater Stockholm Fire Brigade.
The area adjacent to the Slussen subway station, including Södermalmstorg, lower Katarinavägen and Skeppsbron are affected. A larger area is cordoned off to traffic and public transport in the upper part of Slussen is also affected. Most closures are expected to involve between 21:00 and about 01:30.
On New Year’s Day January 1, it will be traditionally organ concerts in the Blue Hall at 14 and at 16. Because of the large crowds pressure last year, the city has decided to put in an extra concert this year. This year’s organists is Anna Holm (from Kungsholmen church) and Andrew Canning (from Uppsala Cathedral). Admission is free, but places are limited.
