  • Red Bull Home Run 20 April 2014
    Red Bull Home Run

    This one's for all you competitive thrill-seekers out there. The race starts after the lifts close for the day and the hills emptied of people (which we can only imagine is for damage limitation). Everyone starts at the same time without their skis or snowboard, but as soon as the starting signal goes it's a rush up to their equipment to get going as fast as possible. The rest - apparently! - is easy.

    Walpurgis celebration at Skansen

    The arrival of spring has been celebrated at Skansen since 1894. It is celebrated with singing, speeches and late night fires.

    Choral singing is a popular pastime in Sweden, and one occasion when nearly every choral singer in the country lets rip is the evening of 30th April, known as Walpurgis Night or, more strictly as Walburga´s Eve (Valborgsmässoafton) being the eve of the feast of Walburga, which comes on 1st May.
