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.

I loved reading Astrid Lindgren's Pippi Longstocking and I desperately wanted to visit and see Junibacken when I went to Eurovision in 2016. I was not disappointed and neither was my 7 year old son. We enjoyed the train ride the most, the entire experience...More

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.

Junibacken is mostly suitable children under school age. There are several great playground rooms but it's hard to play when kids of all age rush each other and all places. Opposite to playgrounds, story train is suitable for older. Start is easy but going to...More

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

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! :-)
