I went to Junibacken after 4 o'clock and just caught the last train ride! Even though I went with no kids and I am probably too old, I just wanted to see the storytrain. And it was absolutely worth it! You are sitting in this...More

Junibacken was a great experience for young and old today. There were no lines of people to contend with and our 3 year old grandson really enjoyed the different play areas! As a grand parent I really appreciated the train ride through history even though...More

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

This was our first visit to the children’s theme park. If you don’t have children, you probably won’t appreciate it but if you do, it is magical. On entry you are given a time slot for Atrid Lindgren’s Story Train. While you’re waiting (we had...More

The live Pippi performance was fun even for kids who don’t speak Swedish. The story train was also good. The rest of the place is mostly for kids under 6. I wish there was more about Astrid Lindgren person and life

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 still would recommend Junibacken. But Skansen is also a good place to go. Junibacken takes 30 min, Skansen can you spend a whole day...

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! :-)
