Place is a combination of a history and tradition of Sweden with the ZOO and some entertainment park type of activities. It is very interactive place and has plenty to offer - food & coffee places, hands on activities for kids, kid’s entertainment, even interaction with certain type of animals. During Valborg, Midsummer, Christmas they have special attraction such as traditional open fire with song (Valborg 30th of April), traditional Midsummer celebration during midsummer in June, and Christmas market and carols during the Christmas season. Also the location and the view is spectacular. I highly recommend it.
Skansen is easy to access either by walking from the city centre, by tram 7 or buss 69 or ferry boat from Gamla Stan
