Big fun for the kids - mini-train takes them around the park. You find playgrounds, animals, a lovely beach, a very nice museum and different interesting exhibitions.
For nature-and birdlovers there is a birdwatching tower and tracks in the wood.
The food in the restaurant and café of "Naturum" is very good. Made from locally produced products, ecological, homemade and - fresh!
There is an other well spoken of restaurant, and in the park you find little kiosks with ice-cream and so.
A really nice place to spend a day!

This is a very nice place. It´s partly a fixed exhibition regarding the animals, insects, birds, fish and trees in Värmland. They also has a part where photoexhibitions alternate. Photos of the nature.
They sell lots of interesting and fun things in their shop. They try to keep it local and also with tought to the environment. There is a lot to do and see even for the reallly small children.
The have av small but very good restaurant where they also try to keep it local, fair-trade etc.
The nature outside is beautiful with plenty of walks to choose from. Towers to watch birds from.
If you come to Karlstad - this is the place not to miss.

This is a really good place for a family outing, but it has plenty to offer for adults, too. Mariebergsskogen is accessible by car, bus 12, or water bus line 91. It is a beautiful park with a little but very nice exhibit/museum (The Naturum) about the surrounding nature. There is a small forest, a little mill house, a playground for kids, ice cream stand, etc. For me the best part was The Naturum, it's cafe (try the local apple juice, it's wonderful!) with tasty open-face sandwiches and cakes, and the surrounding marsh. It's so peaceful and beautiful there. We took the water bus from downtown Karlstad. You can get info and buy a day pass for the water busses at the Toruist office at the library. Mariebergsskogen wouldn't be fun in pouring rain, but Karlstad is known as the sunny city and it certainly was the day we visited Mariebergsskogen. (Maria Mountain Forest in Swedish)
