Beutiful during summer but also good at other times of the year. Of course for example the beats are hibernating but still lots to see and a very nice area to walk around.

Ever curious about what Sweden looked like way back when? This is the place to go. You will find original buildings from several centuries, moved here and resurrected. You can walk the streets in this outdoor museum, enter the houses, look at furniture and tools,...More

An open-air museum that shows what life was like in Sweden in earlier times. There is also a zoo which focuses on Nordic animals and domestic animals.

I really enjoyed the Skansen Museum, especially the zoo area. First time seeing reindeer and a moose. The guides are very friendly and there are lots of old Swedish houses all over the park, making the whole place look like a part of fairy tales....More

I think it's a wonderful place to visit in spring or summer but in winter is a bit desolate and bare. Almost all the houses and attractions were closed and the heavy Snow made it worse. Anyway the animals were lovely (reindeers, seals, owls, wolfs)...More

Skansen is a really unique place in Stockholm. A great location close to the city centre, and certainly with great views!!! There is a little bit of everything: an ethnological museum with traditional crafts, a great bakery, domestic and wild animals, great places to walk...More

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

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!
