Midsummer Weekend

I am trying to decide whether to stay an extra day in Stockholm or leave the city as intended on Friday 21 June. We had planned to pick up a rental car on 21 June this year and begin a driving trip through the south and ending in Malmo. Maybe it is not a good day to start the trip on Midsummer Eve if everyone will be on the road, but I have also read on this forum that Stockholm is 'dead' at this time. Will lots of things be closed for the weekend?

Sweden in general will be quite dead during the Midsummer Weekend.

Most shops close at around 14-15 in the afternoon and will often stay closed until Sunday when there will be regular opening hours.

Most people will be celebrating with family and friends. I'd say leave Stockholm on the 21st.

I Agree!

Friday 21 is driveable as most people allready have reached their summer houses and campsites. Thursday 20 afternoon is the time to avoid. And avoid road E22 southwards on those days!
