Beautiful October day but most of the houses were closed in October, disappointing. Site is lovely but really should be much cheaper when most of it is closed off season.

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 The entrance ticket includes everything within the park. They give you a map. you pay for cafes etc. The Sknen gift shop at the entrance was excellent. Have a nice time!

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!
