I went to see a musical called Kristina från Duvemåla and I enjoyed the venue. They have a lot more toilets for women than most places and the food was excellent in the restaurant. Nice architecture and the big stage is a lot bigger than you might think. The only downside is that the seats, they are very hard to... More

We went here to see the new musical featuring e.g. Peter Jöback. The sound seems to be great from all the seats and the show itself was magnificent in this circus-like building.

Beautiful Circus building with history and tradition. Nowadays used mostly for concerts and shows. Worth a visit! Conveniently located on Djurgården, which is probably on your to do list while in Stockholm.

We were lucky there was a show of this circus when we came. The circus theme still preserves its classical style with red tent mixed with red curtains and white stripes. Clowns, animals and the stunners really made our day!

Staying in Djurgarden & Djurgardsbrunn

Neighborhood Profile
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 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.
