This place is build around stories of Astrid Lindgren - they have 2 rooms themed around different books where children could go inside mini building and so on. But the main attraction is "train" that takes them over recreated events from Astrid Lindgren books with audio dialog - it's truly awesome experience. Ticket prices are on high end - entrance...

Suitable for kids under 10 years, probably. However for the grown ups train is a fabulous surprise and visit to the fairytale.

My husband and I felt a little weird going without a kid, but after I saw pictures I really wanted to go. I'm glad we did. There's a "train ride," which is pretty fantastic. There are a bunch of play areas that tie into the story told during the train ride. I'm sure the kids will love it. As an... More

The best place in Stockholm for kids to meet the Swedish tradition of books for children. A mix of an exhibition, the stories and the histories.

This place is for children but we had fun. It is very well made, fairytale decorations a paradise for little children. The train tour is really nice, even for adults.

A truly must-visit for everybody who knows and loves a fairy-taily dreamy world of Astrid Lindgren - You ll travel back to Your childhood! Nevertheless Unibakken has a good canteen and a souvenir shop with plenty of toys and nice items.

You will get most out of this place if you are familiar with Astrid Lindgren children stories and other Swedish children books. So for me, born in Sweden, it is a great nostalgic trip. For my kids, born and raised outside Sweden however, they might not get all the references. But they still love the place and asked to go... More

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
