PLAN YOUR VISIT
Welcome to Royal Djurgården
In the 18th century, Royal Djurgården was the place where Carl Michael Bellman would spend many a night carousing, and where Stockholm’s Tivoli opened in 1850. Up until 1862, you had to pay an entrance fee. Today, visiting Royal Djurgården is free for everyone. Royal Djurgården is also an important part of the Royal National City Park.
We are excited to welcome you and make your visit a special and memorable experience. We ask that you as a guest also respect Djurgården and its cultural heritage, nature, people and animals. Together, we can care for this unique place, so that it can continue to be an opening and welcoming place for future generations.
By working together, we can collectively contribute to the sustainable development of Djurgården. Today, Djurgården is Scandinavia’s #1 attraction, and we work hard to make your visit both enjoyable and sustainable. Several of our exhibitions and events draw attention to sustainability issues, but there is also work going on behind the scenes. If you are curious to know more about our work, you’ll find information and inspiration on our new sustainability website.
