This indoor amusement park is centered around the universe of Swedish children's book author Astrid Lindgren, possibly the most admired Swede of the 20th century. It offers great fun for kids from 2 to 10 and their parents, with a tunnel tour, a visit of places depicted in Astrid Lindgren's books - especially Pippi Långstrump or Pippi Longstocking - and...

We went there for the first time with our 2 yo boy and he loved it, there are 2 big rooms with lots of small houses, places to discover and hide. There is a restaurant inside (good choice of dishes, meatballs with potatoes purée, soup, salads, pastries etc). You will also find a library , perfect to find children books.... More

Astrid Lindgren's characters are wonderfully represented. The train journey turns into a miracle: you fly over Emil's lawn, and turn round and "enter" Karlsson's house... It impresses even those who are not fond of these books. We loved the performance next to Villa Villekulla. I plan to come back with my grandchildren!

We stopped in as we were nearby. If you don't have kids with you and or they are not little then no point in going in. If you like gluten free pancakes and gluten free meatballs then jump on the storybook train and head over to the cafe! The little train is sweet and takes you around the stories of... More

While the train ride is a great way to get an overview of Astrid Lindgren's stories, the rest of the Junibacken is just an ordinary adventure playground. But definitely a nice day spend for kids. For adults only a nice place to be for big fans of the Lindgren stories.

You will be happy to see your child happy)) Must enjoy 12 minutes trip on a small train( something for people from 3 years old to 99)). Can take something to eat with you as well as buy it at the cafe inside.

We visited here with 2 children aged 12 and 7. They both enjoyed their time and would go back. The restaurant has very nice food and sweets however the lines can be quite long (although they do move relatively fast). Although very busy, finding a table was not too hard! If visiting I would suggest going on a day that... More
