The ideal time to visit Sweden is in summer from June to August . At this time you will find most attractions including cafes and open air museums open while many flock to the north of Sweden to experience the midnight sun . In summer, the sun never fully sets in northern Sweden; even in the south, daylight can last until 11pm, and then the sun rises around 3am

The months of spring and autumn, May through June and the month of September, are almost prettier than the Swedish summers. When spring comes to the Swedish countryside, wildflowers burst into bloom after a long dark winter.

Winter is off season . However one of the most fascinating things you can experience in Sweden is to see the shimmering northern lights, and they can be viewed only in the winter.
