Top ways to experience Kungliga Djurgården
The area
Neighborhood: Djurgården & Djurgårdsbrunn
The island of Djurgården and its northern mainland extension, Djurgårdsbrunn, impress with a mix of nature and an abundance of museums, while being located in walking distance to Stockholm’s city center. Djurgården not only invites visitors to take endless walks through a beautiful park landscape without having to leave the city, but also offers an incredible range of entertainment facilities, such as an open air museum which specializes in the Swedish way of life pre-industrialization, the renowned Vasa Museum with its legendary sailing ship, and Sweden’s most famous amusement park Gröna Lund, which is more than a 100 years old.

    Kungliga Djurgarden - Short Review
    It is definitely a place you should visit if you like walking around; there are lots of paths and sights around it. It is also located in the same island as Skansen and many of the museums, so if you are going to visit those, I suggest adding extra time to walk around here. It's worth it

    Lovely green oasis in the middle of Stockholm!
    Lovely oasis in the middle of Stockholm! Skanses, Gröna lund, ABBA museum, spirit museum and so on. But you can also put your walking shoes on and walk around as we did today. Lots of green areas. You can take the tram there and back, or a bus. The further out the less tourists.

    Must do!
    This has to be a part of your plans if you are going to Stockholm. There is so much to see and do on this island and it is served so well by the boat service which stops at different areas of the island. It is very picturesque and is actually the location for some of the sights to see. My children enjoyed the walk and being a sunny autumn afternoon, a great time too. It is very well sign posted and a great way to enjoy the city and work an appetite.

    A must in Stockholme !!
    One just can't miss this beautiful and peaceful garden while in Stockholme. Thre are many trails and pathways to walk around. We loved to sit on grass and enjoy the nature. A lot of people were jogging and cycling. Many years back it used to be hunting ground for royal families, but now it is like heaven in the centre of the city. There are cafes to have some snacks.The other prominent museums like ABBA, Viking, Vasa and amusement park Grona Lund are nearby on this island. Not to be missed...

    Oasis in the city
    This is a most peaceful area and is located in the city Stockholm on a separate island. I took the ferry across and returned by tram. Many things to see and do there and it is a really peaceful and serene area. The area close by us Skansen and it boast of its many museums and gorgeous building. The area is perfect for picnics in the summer or simply exploring by foot. It is a a definite must

    One of the best things we did in Sweden
    One of the best things we did in Stockholm was to take a walk around the Djurgården. The trail takes you all around (and through) this huge park of gardens, historic buildings and theme parks, and forest where you feel like you're miles from the city. It is particularly beautiful in autumn (especially along the canal) and quiet during the week. We deviated off the path to go to the very pretty Rosendal garden cafe for lunch. It is located in an old greenhouse and surrounded by plant sheds and produce gardens. Other favourite stops (though not all in one day) were Skansen, The ABBA Museum, the Vasa Museum and Bistro Blå porten. There are so many places to stop, things to see, do and photograph that a first walk around Djurgården will likely take you all day. Enjoy!

    Vast and beautiful
    Such a vast area of forest near the water, we walked round it for around 2 hours. It was October so was quiet and lots of cafés were closed, but nevertheless a beautiful place to be at peace with nature. 100% recommend to anyone in Stockholm

    Incredible slice of nature between Stockholm’s noise
    This place really enchanted me, as I walked for hours deep inside the snowy forest, searching for some quietness. In walking distance from the city’s centre lies this park, a beautiful slice of nature between the city’s noisy neighborhoods, where you can enjoy some time with your loved ones or yourself. There are signs indicating the paths, and small businesses to drink coffee, but I didn’t visit any. I recommend walking, deep and high in the forest as it is a magnificent experience. Truly a place that demands your attention.

We spent the entire afternoon strolling around the area but it was impossible to cover all. It is basically an island which also houses the famous Vasa Museum. We planned according to the map and started from Vasa Museum along the northern shoreline. It was not crowded at all and the weather was nice. It was a time to enjoy the nature, the scenic waterfront promenade, and the cool crisp air. We walked towards the east to Rosendals Trädgård, and back to our starting point, clockwise. We passed by some historical buildings, museums, restaurants, cafes, and an amusement park. We spent some time at Rosendals Trädgård, a garden with a café.

KD is a very nice area to visit. It is located on one of the Stockholm islands. It is not an attraction, but a place to relax, especially during the May-Sep period. You could spend as much or as little time walking around.
