The majority of establishments in Sweden are closed on Midsummer’s Day, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Year’s Day. This applies to shops, banks, museums and some restaurants.
For the rest of the year Sunday hours apply to public holidays. A few restaurants are closed on Sundays and public holidays. Museums have their busiest days on public holidays – with the above exceptions.
