The right wing extremists gathered at 1pm outside the cathedral in Stortorget, the square through which the Social Democrats' May 1st march was due to pass.
There was a large police presence in the square, but after half an hour the crowd broke up without any arrests.
The police had earlier announced that reinforcements were being brought in to deal with the threat of a protest, after receiving intelligence that the nazi organization was planning to disrupt Mona Sahlin's speech.
Sahlin delivered the speech as planned at 2pm.
