Has traditional Swedish houses and buildings where staff are in costume, but not exactly in character, doing traditional things like baking bread and various pastries, making chairs, etc. They are there to interact with guests and teach them...More

All of Sweden's history and culture condensed into this beautiful wooded setting. It offers an opportunity to immerse oneself in history through sensory experiences in historic buildings. Plus, the views of the city alone are worth the cost of admission!

Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn
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

Everything was open when we were there last week. There were performers at all the areas,workshops, houses , outside areas. Maybe best to contact them direct if asking about end of August. Enjoy- we certainly did.

Hi! I believe is less quest on the week days the mornings especially. Be sure you'll have plenty of time as the park is large. On the rainy days you will not enjoy the animals as they are hiding. Have a lovely time!
