Swedish newspapers & magazines

Posted in Learn Swedish by

One of the first things I looked up when I was learning Swedish (and could already read a bit of Swedish) was which newspapers and magazines they have in Sweden. Every time I am in Sweden, I buy a pile of Swedish newspapers and magazines so that I have some reading material and can cover the period until I go back. In the list below you will also find the links so that you can read the news and the articles online. Sometimes you need a subscription. For the time being I have limited myself to the most popular and nationally available editions.

Swedish newspapers

Certainly check out The Local. They offer news on Sweden, in English. Always fun to learn more about Swedish society and Swedish culture.

Swedish magazines

Women’s magazines

  • Amelia
  • Damernas Värld is one of the oldest Swedish magazines. They focus on fashion and beauty.
  • Elle, the Swedish version of the world known magazine.
  • Femina
  • Svensk Damtidning is also a real classic. The magazine was first edited in 1889. There is a lot of royal news in this magazine as well.
  • Tara – my personal favourite at the moment.

Men have their own magazine Café.

Gossip

  • Hänt – Hänt i veckan – Hänt Extra: very thin gossip newspaper. Short and easy to read but don’t believe everything that’s in it!

Theme magazines

  • Hem Ljuva Hem – an interior magazine with practical tips

Of course there are many design and interior magazines in Sweden. Garden magazines and magazines about health and psychology are also well represented. In my list I have limited myself mainly to the magazines that I sometimes buy.

Is your favourite newspaper or magazine not listed? Share it in the comments! I would love to get to know new Swedish magazines.

      Hej Miriam, I am afraid I can’t help you with that. I don’t think there is a Swedish magazine that can be send to the UK with a subsciption. Maybe in an international book shop you can buy them?
      I’ll post your question on Twitter. Maybe someone will know a solution.
      Kind regards, Heidi
