About Djurgården

Wave line

Stockholm’s most beautiful island, also called ‘The Museum Island,’ offers some of Stockholm’s most popular museums and attractions, right in the middle of the beautiful green areas.

Attractions and museums, bathing cliffs, and green landscapes. Take the kids to Sweden’s oldest amusement park Gröna Lund or Skansen, the world’s oldest open-air museum. Here you can see Sweden’s history in miniature and look at animals, including Nordic species such as moose, bear, lynx, and seal. The theme of a child-friendly museum continues with visits to Junibacken. Here it’s all about playing, and fairy tales and the little ones can enjoy everything from Astrid Lindgren to Pettson and Findus. Don’t miss the children’s performances held five times a day.

The adults can pick from a lot of attractions and culture. Visit the disco era at ABBA The Museum, deep dive into the history ag the Vasa Museum, or head to Liljevalchs for a tour of art and design – perhaps also Stockholm’s most beautiful exhibition environment. Love birds should take a stroll along the ‘Love Path, ‘ which is officially inaugurated by the Crown Princess Couple. And don’t miss jumping on the Djurgården ferry that takes you between Slussen and Djurgården. It’s a perfect time to enjoy the sea breeze and scenic views – and it cost no more than an SL ticket.

Take a coffee break along your walk in Rosendal’s garden where pastries and sandwiches are served with an organic and biodynamic theme. Visit the popular Lilla Hasselbacken, which has been around since 1866 with cozy nostalgia and classic home cooking or deep dive in Nordic bistro and gastronomy at Oaxen Krog & Slip.
