Genuinely beloved by Stockholmers, Djurgården is a beautiful island park stuck in the middle of Stockholm between Gamla Stan, Södermalm and Östermalm. The island takes many forms ranging from garden and farm to forest and harbour. It’s also overstocked with galleries and museums, an amusement park and even a zoo.
You can easily spend a week here. But if you have to choose just one museum, we recommend Junibacken, a children’s museum dedicated to fiction, in particular the work of Astrid Lingren. If you’re looking for a good meal and an outoor romp, head to Rosendals Trädgård.
