Open data for holiday-home areas

Statistics Sweden delineates holiday-home areas using a combination of geocoded registers and geospatial information. The data on holiday-home areas can be freely downloaded as open geodata.

Holiday-home areas are built-up areas with at least 50 buildings that are classed as holiday homes. Holiday homes are defined as buildings without a registered population, with a certain type code from the Real Estate Tax Assessment Register. 

Holiday-home areas are shown as polygons. Until 2015, they were updated once every five years.

  • Reference year
  • County code
  • Land area in hectares
  • Municipality code
