“Where grown ups become kids again”
Reviewed August 28, 2014

A truly must-visit for everybody who knows and loves a fairy-taily dreamy world of Astrid Lindgren - You ll travel back to Your childhood! Nevertheless Unibakken has a good canteen and a souvenir shop with plenty of toys and nice items.

“Swedish childhood memories”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

You will get most out of this place if you are familiar with Astrid Lindgren children stories and other Swedish children books. So for me, born in Sweden, it is a great nostalgic trip. For my kids, born and raised outside Sweden however, they might not get all the references. But they still love the place and asked to go back when we visited this summer.

The place gets busy, especially during weekends and school holidays. Aim to be there for 10am when they open to have a chance to beat the queues and avoid waiting for 2 hours for the Storybook Train (which is the best experience in Junibacken). We have also seen plays - they are in Swedish though. The actors and stories were surprisingly good.

“Great playground when it rains”
Reviewed August 26, 2014

Great place for kids over three , unfortunately you can only enter once with the Stockholm card and it is fairly expensive

“Lots and Lots for Kids!”
Reviewed August 22, 2014

We went here to relive a bit of childhood---and the place is fairly impressive! There's a big area for kids to play in, and the storybook train is fun, even as an adult, as it plays out as much as a kids roller coaster as it does a story.

This is definitely more worthwhile for kids, and there's much less to do as an adult, or even an older child.

Go early when it opens as it gets busy fast and the crowds can make seeing things frustrating.

The cafe is pretty good---the pastries aren't bad and the pancakes are worth it!

“Another great day @ Junibacken”
Reviewed August 20, 2014

When travelling with children Junibacken is MUST to visit.
We have been in Junibacken 4-5 times, and every time we find something new, interesting or fun.
It suitable from few years old children to teenagers. There almost all the time standing lines @ entrance, but when you inside there are plenty of room and things to do. Even I find this place attractive as adult.
There is also cafeteria/restaurant where you can buy famous Swedish pancakes with jam and whipped cream,…nam.
