We went here to relive a bit of childhood---and the place is fairly impressive! There's a big area for kids to play in, and the storybook train is fun, even as an adult, as it plays out as much as a kids roller coaster as it does a story. This is definitely more worthwhile for kids, and there's much less... More

When travelling with children Junibacken is MUST to visit. We have been in Junibacken 4-5 times, and every time we find something new, interesting or fun. It suitable from few years old children to teenagers. There almost all the time standing lines @ entrance, but when you inside there are plenty of room and things to do. Even I find... More

The kids were very excited about going to 'see' Pippi Longstocking. Unfortunately the summer holidays meant enormous crowds, a wait of over an hour and a half for the key part of the visit - the Story Train. In the meantime, while you wait, you're herded into a play area designed like a miniature village. In itself it's pretty cool... More

Easily accesible by tram or bus (check my skansen opinion for details) a 5 min walk away from the bus and tram stop (first one once you cross the bridge towards Djurgården. It is the museum of Pipi Longstockings author, the remarkable Astrid Lindgren. She wrote many more books and you can see pieces of all of them in there.... More

I went to toss place with my niece not having much of an idea what to expect. But I think this is a perfect perfect place for your kids to visit. Not very big but the highlight the fairytale train that tells a magical story about Astrid Lindgrens books. It was very good even for me as an adult. The... More

If so this is The place to go. Sometimes when traveling with kids it's hard to find a place for them to have place. Here you'll find it. The target it's between 4 and 8 and even for a non-swedish kid he will love it without ever heard about that stories

Ok, so if you have children this is non negotiable must see in Stockholm. But also, we went there without kids and felt like kids! Go back in time: before we got so hi-tech! Relive all your childhood stories that is so true to Sweden. Take a trip on the train: wow wow wow!

The kids loved it (as they did the rest of Stockholm). We bought and enjoyed some of Lindgren's books before visiting which added to their understanding and just let them run riot for a few hours. We all enjoyed the story train too. The food and dinning hall are outstanding, as was the gift shop.

We've been to Junibacken a few times and each time we go they change things up enough so that it's a new adventure. They keep some of the kids' favorite things the same - the human hamster wheel! The pretend korv stand! Pippi's big horse! - yet the new city scene they created when you go down from the cafeteria... More

This place is amazing for kids (and adults). It is one of the few places which is still cute and authentically Swedish. If you love Astrid Lindgren or a nice experience for your kids, come here.
