Excellent activity for young kids.

Excellent activity for young kids. Especially those familiar with the works of Astrid Lindgren. Teens would be bored. Parents enjoy the cafeteria.

It is a very unique place. Intentionally for children - fairytales - but for adults who just want to relax and have fun too :-) Very original way of showing/ telling a fair. Very cosy place!

While the place was smaller than I had expected it was packed with a lot of fun! The fairy tale "train" ride suprised me and was awesome! What I really like with the place is that they have made everything fairy talish, including the restaurant. Our daughter (almost 3 years) has some serious issues with sitting still and eating, but...

We are not kids any more but we went there as my childhood was blessed by reading Astrid Lingren tales and she is one of my favourite writers. The place is the most amazing playground for children, also their main aim is to encourage children to read. In their bookshop you can buy books in Swedish, English, Russian and other... More

TLDR: Play and explore areas (Sagotorget and Villa Villekulla) are AMAZING if you are familiar with the stories. Story train (Sagotåget) however is scary. It's well made and you will be wowed, but at least the kids I've visited there have all been scared. We have visited Stockholm with our kids many times, but never visited Junibacken 'cause I remember... More

We made a short visit to junibacken and for kids at the right ages this can be fun. Check them out online first to make sure you and your kids know about the different stories and characters that can be found there or you may find yourself visiting a place with no interest for you. It's not a huge attraction... More

The idea of Junibacken is really great! But it is not. You pay a lot of money and you pretty much get nothing. You get a ride through some of Astrid Lindgren's most known stories. And thats's it.

As an adult i constantly explore places where my children will get inspired and dream. Talk what's possible. This is one of those places they enjoyed enormously, discussing passionately fairy tale characters and admiring the way everything is done. I recommend it to everyone

Not cheap with around €60 for the family, gives about 3 hours of fun. Storytrain is nice and available in many languages. Pipi's villa is amazing!

Even if you dont love Astrid Lindgren this place is magic! My children loved it, we went there a coppel of times every year. You just dont get tired of th elittle train going through a magic landscape , Villa villerkulla and the other playful exhibitions. Everywhere you can play, climb, try out and interact. Warmly recommended!

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighbourhood Profile
Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city 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 an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.
