Great place to spend the day. See craftsmen at work, wander in and out of historic homes and I enjoyed a great concert

We were really intrigued with the concept of this space but we found the maps to be difficult to read and we overwhelmed with the size of it. (Jet lag was likely a factor) The food in the restaurant was excellent.

We thought that we were going to walk through an open air working Museum that reflected what life must have been like many years ago in Sweden and were disappointed. We read that we would see people wearing period costumes but only saw 2. Many...More

It's like a huuuuuge zoo with small historical villages reconstitution. Better go early, it's so big that it takes time to visit it all.

nice for kids but also for adults, if you are interested in the nature and old traditions of Sweden, if you are into the modern Swede, then this is not the place. If you are for the nature and for the kids part then Skansen...More

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland

nature and an abundance of museums, while being

without having to leave the city, but also offers an
incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as
