Celebrate Easter at Skansen
Skansen is the best place to celebrate Easter. Here you can learn more about Easter traditions, visit the Easter market and make decorations for your Easter twigs.

Easter week is celebrated at Skansen in different ways. On Maundy Thursday children all over Sweden dress up as witches to deliver Easter letters and receive candy. On Skansen they can make their own brooms and pretend they're taking off for Blåkulla. In some of the houses the Easter feast is prepared and traditions explained and on the Bollnäs square there is an Easter market selling birch twigs with the traditional decorations, sweets and food.
Daily April 13–22
