Schwedische Feste und Traditionen

Typically Swedish!? From Midsummer magic to ”fika”

Swedish celebrations and traditions are an experience to behold. The enchanted feel of Midsummer’s Eve, the atmospheric glow of Lucia’s candle in the dark of winter and the Easter witches’ colourful mischief never cease to fascinate.

You will learn about noteworthy Swedish festivals, how they were celebrated in the past, and how they are still celebrated today. Look at these cultural events a little closer and we find that what we often perceive as being typically Swedish has at some point in time been adapted from other cultures. Where do the Christmas tree and maypole come from? Who was Lucia? What constitutes a Christmas gift? We will answer these and many other questions during the tour.

Even Swedish business culture is put under the lens when we talk about Swedish traditions and culture. “Fika” and “lagom” (roughly translated as “just right”) are concepts that are not entirely self-explanatory in an international context. We demonstrate how an awareness of cultural similarities and differences is a crucial prerequisite for successful intercultural dialogue.
