(If you want to read about specific attractions, please scroll down)

Whether you are interested in modern technology, 20th century art or Nordic history (perhaps Vikings?) there are a lot of exciting activities at Djurgården. The wide range of activities has made Djurgården Scandinavia’s number 1 destination. It’s really no wonder many locals like to spend lots of their free time here! So why not try to live like a local Stockholmare for a day? Welcome to Djurgården!

Djurgården has been used for recreation and entertainment for several hundred years now. Djurgården has been royal ground since the 18th century and even back then the locals went to Djurgården to have a nice time with friends and family. Several different kings and queens of Sweden used Djurgården as hunting ground. One of our queens, Queen Kristina, even held lions here! The area where you’ll find the Nordic Museum is still called Lejonslätten, the Lion plain.

Here at Djurgården you can experience why the locals like it so much and even blend in with the locals who like to run or go hiking in the park, have some laughs at the amusement park Gröna Lund, and visit different Nordic animals at Skansen. There is a lot to discover here! Two of Scandinavia’s biggest museums, Skansen & the Vasa museum, can be found here, and the Nordic museum is Sweden’s largest cultural and historical museum.

The artistic Djurgården

For a hundred years now art has had a natural place at Djurgården. Both the Thiel Gallery and Prince Eugen’s Waldemarsudde can trace their history back to 1905. The art gallery Liljevalchs opened in 1916 and still arranges a juried Spring Salon exhibition.

The musical Djurgården

When you walk past Abba the Museum they will tell you: Walk in – Dance out. And it’s true! Here you can experience Sweden’s greatest musical export for yourself. But music is to be found all over Djurgården. Skansen arrange Allsång på Skansen, a musical concert where the whole crowd sings together, Gröna Lund hosts over 70 concerts each year and Cirkus arrange several shows of the highest quality.

Children’s Djurgården

Djurgården is a place for all ages. Junibacken is the local children’s favourite museum, many families like to spend a whole day together at either Gröna Lund or Skansen and the National Museum of Science and Technology have a mathematical garden, a playground full of fun for everyone – free and open all day. And while you’re in the area, don’t miss out on the Police Museum, the National Sports Museum of Sweden or perhaps try to live like a sailor at the Maritime Museum. Of course there is food for everyone at our many restaurants. 

Experience Djurgården closely

We have many beautiful natural areas, statues, monuments and an amazing wildlife. Did you know that you can find over 800 different flowers and about a hundred species of birds? The best way to experience Djurgården is by foot or with a bike. You can rent a bike and get a map at Royal Djurgården Visitor Center or at Djurgårdsboden, just outside Skansen & Cirkus. If you bring your camera there are many opportunities to capture amazing photos!
