We have all read the Pippi Langstumpe books - a visit to Junibacken takes you right back to your childhood. We love to take our grand daughter along and join in her delight at the offerings.

This is a great (although a bit expensive) attraction for small children and Astrid Lindgren fans. Train ride is magical. Not much else for adults though, wouldn’t recommend without kids.

We had heard so muck good about Junibacken, and longed to go there. We had a fantastic train ride listening to Astridscalm and beautiful voice. We recommend this ride for anyone, any age. But the rest is exaggerated, and is not worth visiting.

center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take
endless walks through a beautiful park landscape
without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as

I don't think that it's necessary for your 3yo to know the characters. Maybe it will add more to the experience if you read her a story or show her an episode of Pipi's adventures. You can visit Pipi's house in Junibacken... More

With a young kid you might stay longer than 2 hours, especially if they make friends with other kids and want to play: there are plenty of things to do for them there. They might not want to leave! :-)
