Lucia Celebration at the Roof of Uppsala Castle

The annual tradition of the brave Lucia on the roof takes place on December 13, on the rooftop of Uppsala’s pink castle.

Lucia is a Swedish tradition dating back to medieval times, celebrated each year on December 13th with Lucia processions, candles and songs. It marks the beginning of the Christmas season. At Uppsala Castle, a brave Lucia strides on the castle fence with her shining entourage – this is truly Uppsala’s most unique Lucia celebration! The Lucia Celebration is best seen from the Swan Pond below the castle – it is of course free to be a spectator.
